About Cantrell Christian Coaching
As a Certified Professional Coach (see certifications), I am passionate about coaching Christian women around Spiritual Formation and how to daily live in freedom and joy. My purpose is not only to help you become aware of what you are believing about God and yourself but also to help you see how your beliefs align with Biblical truth. Kenneth Boa, in Conformed To His Image, said that "Our image of God shapes our spiritual direction and future."
We all get some form of spiritual formation growing up, but what is it based on? Is your view of God grounded on biblical truth or something you read, saw, or heard? Spiritual Formation coaching will help you clarify your theology on who God is and your faith. I can help you discover how God has perfectly created you concerning your values, talents, gifts, and strengths. Only then will you truly know your identity and be able to uncover your unique passion and calling.
I can help you uncover sabotaging mindsets you have been believing and living in. For instance, have you been believing that you are not enough or that God is not enough? Maybe you have been believing the lie that your circumstances will never change or that you should never have to suffer? These are only a few of the lies that many women believe.
I have helped many women uncover their unique passion and calling, get unstuck, grow in their relationship with Christ, and learn how to daily live in freedom and joy. But, are you coachable? Coaching is for you if you are courageous, committed, honest, healthy mentally, ready to move forward and get unstuck, and willing to hear the promptings of God. My coaching is relaxed and confidential.
I coach using Zoom with or without video or by telephone. I am inviting you to a 30-minute FREE Discovery Call where you can share your heart with me and ask me coaching questions. You can book the call directly on my calendar: https://calendly.com/cantrellcc/discovery-call
Hello, I am Claudia Cantrell. I grew up in Charlotte, NC, and accepted Christ at age ten. After graduating from Duke University, I practiced as a Physician Assistant for over 30 years in the medical areas of emergency/trauma, cardiology, electrophysiology, and orthopedic surgery. I also worked in the medical device industry for a Fortune 500 company where I held a leadership role in both the United States and Europe.
After practicing clinical medicine for 30 years, I knew God had to have more for me. I struggled with questions such as “Who am I?”, “What’s my purpose?”, and “What matters?” After being led to attend the Halftime Institute to gain clarity, I knew God was calling me to be a Certified Professional Coach and to complete a book that I was writing that centered around my spiritual journey.
On my journey, I experienced a crisis of faith following a traumatic personal event that turned my life upside down. (https://cantrellchristiancoaching.com/spiritual-formation-coaching/) I hit the "wall” and it was the most excruciating experience of my life. A place where God took me so I could come to the end of myself and see my pride. A place where my faith was shaken. At that point, I was asking Him questions such as “What are You doing?”, “Where are You?”, and “What do you want from me?” In addition, I was pleading with Him to end my pain and kill me. I just did not want to live life any longer.
It took time for me to get through the "wall." But, on the other side, I knew my true self in Christ which I had never known before. I knew my identity and how He had "wired" me. No longer did I doubt God's goodness and His deep love for me. My life was no longer about me and all about Him. I emerged on the other side of the "wall" with a strong and secure faith that I never questioned again, was more humble, and much more merciful. I saw everyone through the eyes of God and my judgmental spirit was gone. I loved deeper, was more vulnerable, took risks, and was obedient to God’s promptings. It was worth all the excruciating pain and suffering.
