A transformation coach assists a person in overcoming internal hurdles that are preventing them from achieving their goals in any aspect of their lives. This includes negative programming, limiting beliefs, and unconscious mental processes. Mindset is the key to unlocking your maximum potential, and it is my responsibility to assist you in making the necessary changes to develop a strong mindset so that you may approach each day with full focus and drive. Additionally, I can help individuals cultivate a well-crafted and winning image that represents the internal strength they now have.

Should You Choose A Coach or a Therapist?

Coaching vs. Therapy

The difference between therapy and coaching is that a therapist focuses on your past issues and mostly listens by providing “talk therapy”. This can be very therapeutic as it allows you to release certain emotions and thought patterns that have been bottled up inside.

A therapist does not provide advice.

While a coach spends some time understanding your past so that they can get an understanding as to why you are currently in your situation, their objective is to focus on your future and where you want to be.

If you believe you are suffering from old emotional wounds or traumatic issues from your parents or family that has deeply pained you, it might be beneficial to see a therapist before working with a coach so that you can release these old wounds that may be weighing you down.

Another major difference between a life coach and therapist is that a coach cannot diagnose any mental health issue such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, etc. And therefore cannot prescribe any medications either.




What IS Transformational Coaching Anyway?

Mindset Coaching + Productivity Coaching = Transformational Coaching

Transformational coaching is similar to life coaching. It involves helping people bettering themselves and their lives by bringing about necessary changes. Instead of changing how they act, however, as with life coaching clients, transformational coaching clients work on changing the way they see themselves. In my practice, my focus is on helping the client explore the underlying assumptions, beliefs, values, expectations, and personal attitudes that shape their experience of themselves, their world and other people. Of course, this is not an unfocused exploration. I typically start with the client’s presenting challenge, issue or aspiration but rather than focusing purely on resolving or achieving this, we seek to explore what is at the heart of this whilst also enabling, where relevant, the achievement of the objectives.  My service provides the opportunity for total transformation inside and out for both men and women. My primary focus is to help you develop a mindset that empowers you to overcome self-limiting thoughts, beliefs and behaviors and replace them with ones that enable you to set and attain amazing goals and live the life you always dreamed of. You entire life will benefit from coaching with me, Personal, Career, Relationships, Spirituality and Image. Additionally, you can follow-up on your transformation with Image Coaching. Through the use of tools such as wardrobe redesign, hair styling, cosmetic application, skin care and coaching exercises, we create an amazing image that will positively reflect who you are and what you want to project. Every makeover is customized to fit your lifestyle, career, personality, and social activities.

When it comes to building your business's personal brand, you'll need to put in a lot of time and effort. To your target audience, your brand represents who you are and what makes you stand out from the crowd. As a result, every aspect of your business, from your website to your logo to your photographs, must be carefully considered. It's imperative that you present your best self, both metaphorically and literally.

Personal brand photography captures the essence of who you are and how you want your audience to perceive you.

"Through the coaching sessions I have learned to be kinder to myself, to accept that I don't always have to stress over every detail, sometimes performing at 90% is  OK. Throughout the process, Will has challenged me, or slowed me down as necessary (lol), and reminded me that it is time to put me and MY happiness back in first place! I had forgotten that. I'm excited to finish the program and begin loving my life all over again! Thanks Will"

“Working with Wil-Gravely-Strayhorn aka,  Dr. Wil, was an amazing experience!”  I reached out to Wil for assistance with rebranding my image for a major career transition.  In just a few sessions, along with minor tweaks: color changes, bold accessories-that “pop,” and of course flawless make-up, he repurposed, and changed my style to make me look and feel my absolute best!  Thank you, Wil, for challenging me to step out of my comfort zone in preparation for my new season!
