Kim Childs is a certified positive psychology coach, Kripalu yoga teacher and facilitator of workshops based on The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. She founded Take the Leap Coaching to help guide people to greater fulfillment, well-being and self-expression. As a coach, Childs combines the concepts and practices of positive psychology and The Artist’s Way to assist her clients in bringing forth clarity, greater self-awareness, inspired action and a sense of purpose.
“It’s truly my pleasure and privilege to help people know and appreciate themselves more deeply,” she says. “As a coach, I hold up a believing mirror to my clients, reflecting back their strengths and helping them to identify and live from their authentic desires. I also hold them accountable, gently but firmly, to the actions they decide to take.”
For more than a decade, Childs has worked with men and women of all ages to reclaim their lives and explore their passions, artistic and otherwise. She works with clients over the telephone, via Skype and in-person, in private or group sessions. “We all have things that we long to do in life and give to this world, and we are meant to do and give them,” she says. “I have taken the leap many times to follow my heart in the direction of what promised greater fulfillment, and it’s my life’s work to help others do the same.”
Childs shares more lessons in her blog, A Pilgrim on The Path. As a writer, her work has been featured in Chicken Soup for the Mother and Daughter Soul, Natural Awakenings magazine and Thrive, the blog of the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. When she’s not working, she likes to sing, drum, chant and take long walks.
