My name is Grace E. Kim, a professional coach and consultant.
I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and a Faculty Member of The Flow Coaching Institute.
I offer life coaching for individuals and working professionals, and also provide consulting for clients interested in building a coaching business. Through the Flow Coaching Institute, I teach online ICF Certification Courses and also facilitate the Coaches Rise Mastermind, a 12-week Mastermind for Coaches.
When I'm at my finest feminine self, I'm a free-spirited pisces, wanting to travel the world and dance under the moon. When I'm in my masculine energy, my "everything is possible, I just have to do them" attitude gets me moving ahead. My days are usually spent trying to balance these two sides of me.
I am ethnically Korean, but I think and act like an American, having spent both my adolescent years and university years in the States. I now live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with a Maldivian partner, raising a wonderful 8 year old son. My friends would say "Grace has a young spirit, but an old soul", my mom would say I'm the rebellious one, but I think my son describes me best when he calls me "fabulous, not-giving up person, who is also kind of kind".
My greatest opportunity in life was when I became a single mom of a 1 year old and had to rebuild my life, business, and relationships. I also had to reevaluate my own values and belief systems that were no longer serving me. It was then I decided to dedicate my life to working with people through coaching, helping people create and live the life they truly want and deserve.
I've been to 28 countries and will continue to travel the world (after covid!). If you want to be my friend bring me coffee in the morning and wine at night, enlighten me with intellectual conversations sprinkled with humour and sarcasm!
My coaching philosophies and practice strongly reflect a holistic approach and values of positive psychology.
This is what I believe to be true about coaching my clients
