Welcome to Kelly Gerling's Seattle Area Life Coaching, Mediation & NLP Practice

I'm a Seattle life coach, mediator and NLP specialist working with you to achieve YOUR goals for change


In our collective minds, a rainbow signifies an arc of our imagination that has a pot of gold at the end—our desired, exciting imagined future that simultaneously lures us towards it, and awaits our arrival.

If you want help with the important changes you imagine—the goals at the end of your rainbow—changes that would solve important problems—then you have come to the right place.

"It hurts to have problems—especially if the problems seem to have no end in sight."

When you are confronting a problem—whether personally, in your family life, or in your organization—the most common experience is that of pain. It hurts to have problems—especially if the problems seem to have no end in sight. You want something to overcome the obstacles in the way. You may not know how to achieve solutions. But you know you want solutions. You want change. Over my career, my job has been to provide the processes, skills and interventions to overcome obstacles to change.

Which means, in short, that I'm a professional change agent. I've developed a particular set of skills over several decades of study and practice doing change work—skills that enable me to help you bring about change when it seems difficult or unlikely. I work as a change agent—providing personal change through coaching, mediation and NLP with individuals, couples, and families..

I work with my clients in several ways: at my office, by phone sessions, by video-conferencing sessions, and in the case of some coaching clients, at their offices.

Powerful LIfe Coaching, Mediation and NLP Skills & Methods for You

The powerful change skills that guide my work include inner skills and outer skills. Together, these skills help me to help my clients bring about better thinking and communicating towards achieving their goals for change. These skills are drawn from my research, understanding and experience in NLP, psychology, counseling, hypnosis, cognitive science, spirituality, literary narrative structures, and several other areas of knowledge. Since these change skills apply in the multiple contexts in which I work as a change agent, the skills also have their own area of the site called Theory & Practice.

Graphical Flow Charts To Help YOU and or YOUR Organization Change

To see a whole array, a whole curriculum, of skills and methods for change (meaning development, growth, and transformation) take a look at my Values Based Leadership Flow Chart Page. It has links to two detailed flow charts, which are graphical front ends for showing key inner and outer skills for dealing with important situations you encounter. And it does so in the context of situations you may be experiencing. Through using these charts, you'll find dozens of skills, methods and procedures available for you. They help to bring out the amazing ability of people to make changes, for their own life, and for their relationships. How can you use these flow charts for change? By browsing around them and finding out how your goal or situation can be re-conceived, and your responses to that situation re-planned and rehearsed for your to achieve an intelligent and wise way of proceeding. There are a variety of healing skills and methods under the category "Victim Cycle Antidotes."
