You Don’t Have to Do it Alone, Be Coached

Your Guide Towards a Successful and More Fulfilling Life

To find a coach and a counselor who will help you realize your personal vision, turn to Bonnie Howell Coach and Counsel, LLC. Now based in Tampa/St Petersburg, Florida I am here to provide you with the professional advice you need whenever your life feels as though it’s not yours or at least not the one you had in mind.

During coaching sessions, I advise my clients to look deep into their inner selves, so they may find the energy and wisdom that lies within. Working together we’ll explore your options, find a new direction more of your own choosing and then map a way to get there. I will see you in my office, through FaceTime, Zoom, or SKYPE, by phone or personal e-mail. The badges you see displayed such as the one here on anxiety signifies an area in which I've provided counsel on-line.

In addition, you’ll learn effective techniques to be your own coach going forward; short-term intervention, long term results is my goal for every client. Given the variety of methods I’m trained and certified to provide, I‘ll guide you to a specific plan that fits your needs and personality.

Educational Background

I am a Bachelor's Degree holder in Organizational Behavior and in Pastoral Counseling. I earned Master’s Degrees in business administration (MBA) and in divinity (M.Div). I also hold a doctoral degree in health administration. I earned a diploma from America’s first hypnotherapy training school to become nationally accredited, by an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, in Washington, D.C.  The Hypnosis Motivation Institute is recognized as the best, most comprehensive training program in the country. 

I have to say though my hardest and most relevant education came day by day, raised in a home with 16 other children, who were placed in our home by social services, raising three children of my own, living through a divorce, living through a brain tumor, living through my own coping strategies. Won't ever say been there done that because each of our stories is different and yet I believe we can learn from and help one another.

Professional Experiences

I have more than 20 years of experience as the CEO of a major regional medical center, chair of a bank board, and chair of various regional, state, and national organizations. Over the course of my career I have always used the leader as coach leadership philosophy.

Mission Statement

When individuals come to me and talk about themselves as the sum of the roles they play; when they believe they have a work life, a home life, a career, what have you; I gently push them back by saying we have but one precious life, and it's impossible to have a problem in one area that then doesn't impact every other one.

Equally as paralyzing, an individual may believe they are responsible for their own life direction but don't believe they have the tools or the motivation to be their own change agent.

Sound familiar? Not uncommon in today's changing, fast-paced world, we've discovered how connected we really are. We are in the middle of a universal pandemic without a universal health care system, our economy is tied to a universal exchange of goods and services that impacts even our smallest businesses and each of our families. It all seems so big and out of our control, that change seems impossibly complicated.  This new reality has can be very isolating, depressing, debilitating. My mission is to provide an avenue for change one conversation at a time.

My Philosophy

As Bonnie Howell Coach and Counsel, LLC, I believe that we are in control of our destinies; leaders in our lives. By training with this philosophy in mind, I have been privy to many personal breakthroughs with my clients. Just a few of those appear in the testimonials section.

Seven Leadership Truths was developed with this definition of leadership in mind: it's an inside job, and starts in your own life. I have spoken across the country and throughout the world on those leadership truths and have been well received by audiences from all walks of life, all stages of personal development, and all skill levels of leadership. My work appears in a book co-authored by Deepak Chopra, Jack Canfield, Dr. Denis Waitley entitled “Stepping Stones to Succes.”

I'm glad you were led here. Yes, I do mean led. I believe anyone who comes to this website comes for a reason. Welcome, even if you don't consciously know your reason for being here quite yet. Remind me to tell you a story about why I don't believe in accidents or coincidences. To help find out why you came, try asking yourself these questions:

Are you satisfied with the direction, purpose, and fit of your life? Do you feel you’re where you want to be, or do you often feel as though you should be someone or somewhere else with a different life more of your choosing?

Do you know who or where you'd like to be, but can't envision how to get there? Or can you not even feel that there’s something better for you out there, though you're not happy with where you are?

Most of us fall into one of those places from time to time. I know I sure have. But if it's more than an occasional passing thought or if this state of mind is new to you, if you've moved beyond occasional to often or nearly always feeling unhappy or unfulfilled, I want to help.

I offer a variety of coaching, counseling, and consulting services. All are aimed at helping you overcome the obstacles in your life or between you and your goals. I specialize in focused short-term interventions and endeavor to provide you with tools you can use for a lifetime of self-coaching.

I promise to work with you to create a strong foundation — a foundation that is solid enough for you to build the future you want for you, your family, your work team, or your organization.

So many other people count on you; I hope you will learn to count on my skills and my intention. That's what I mean when I say you don't have to do it alone. I offer personal coaching, parenting skills, family and workplace team building, career guidance, and workplace development advice because those are the things that make up your one precious life. Not sure your state of mind influences others. No matter what time of year it is find, watch yourself or preferably with your family that wonderful old movie 

So if you see yourself running headlong into the scenario depicted in this picture, and getting there isn't, as they say, half the fun for you--let's start with some work on living In the moment. That's how and when life happens. Please don't waste any time on waiting for something or someone else to come along and save you with no effort on your part. This is your one precious life, and this moment is all you have for sure, yet in this moment, one change can change everything. Let's work together to focus on the journey, then in my experience the destination will take care of itself. Come for your free consultation, we'll get you moving again, by the way always moving toward greater happiness, not away from a life that's not of your choosing or no longer serving your needs. "Moving away from" will happen, but only by looking forward not back, only by moving, not standing still. Enjoy the journey, remember you don't have to do it alone, be coached.

Frankly, and at the risk of repeating myself, I don’t believe that isolating artificial constructs like a personal life, a work life, a family life, or a career is a helpful coaching or counseling model The goal is to give you “take home” skills to secure in your own personal tool box —used to be your own coach in your own integrated life. The very latest technology is used to make change easier and more interesting. Click on WHAT CLIENTS SAY to see testimonials from my clients.

Best, Bonnie
