Authenticity Coaching

personal authenticity coach Michael Nagel MAWelcome! My name is Michael Nagel. I am the author of this blog and a counselor in private practice in Portland, Oregon. I offer this blog as a resource for persons who wish to find a way back to themselves and to the fulfillment that results from a life lived with authenticity.

Because some persons want more personal support for their development of authenticity, I also offer my national and international clients 50-minute authenticity coaching sessions by telephone, Skype, and FaceTime .

The skills I coach include self-discovery skills which enable you to contact your Self and clarify your individuality. Yet authentic living asks also that the discovered inclinations of your authentic nature be expressed outwardly in the world, and so I also coach self-expression skills.

More specifically, the skills of self-discovery and self-expression include these following skills which my posts also address in one way or another:

Self-Discovery Skills

  • Presence – Being with the immediacy of your experience within and without as it unfolds in the present moment.
  • Listening – Receptively sensing and inquiring into the felt sense of your unfolding experience.
  • Love of Truth – A fidelity to the truth of your own experience – a truth which for you supersedes other concerns.
  • Wholeness – Experiencing and embracing all that you are with a radical permissiveness.
  • Self-Esteem – Implicitly valuing the givenness of your nature as it is.
  • Self-Acceptance – Reconciling your preferences and expectations with the givenness of your nature and your life as it is.
  • Values Clarification – Giving definition to your own values, beliefs, opinions, and posture in life.
  • Living as Process – Living as a dynamic unfolding process, not an unchanging concept of yourself.

Self-Expression Skills

  • Personal Autonomy – Inner or self-direction and self-regulation.
  • Uniqueness – Valuing and expressing the difference that you are.
  • Boundaries – Having flexible boundaries which distinguish you to yourself, your relationships, and your world.
  • Agency – Living as the cause of your life, not the effect.
  • Choice – Creating your life the privilege of conscious choice.
  • Decision Making -Enabling your deliberations with the formal skills of decision making.
  • Will – Applying the resolve of your will to your self-directed purpose.
  • Commitment – Passionately committing your abilities and resources to the life you choose to live.
  • Self-Assertion – Expressing yourself in the world through action.
  • Personal Responsibility – Freely accepting responsibility for the consequences of your choices and actions.

Feel Welcome to Schedule a Complimentary Consultation for Authenticity Coaching

I feel that as a prospective coaching client you should have the opportunity to meet with me initially for a complimentary consultation wherein you can discuss your needs, I can share the nature of my work, and you can determine if the “chemistry” is a fit for you.

Therefore, if you are interested in exploring coaching to support your becoming more authentic, I welcome you to consider scheduling a complimentary consultation. We would meet by phone, Skype, or FaceTime, and we would have up to 50 minutes to discuss your interests, needs, and the nature of how we might work together.
