Thrive Across All
Domains of Your Life
Drawing from over 25 years as a leader in adult and organizational learning, Terri Altschul helps her clients push beyond the limits of outmoded patterns to access their highest power, impact and healing.
Terri offers tools and practices that draw from coaching psychology and the work of Gestalt Psychology and Carl Jung. Terri’s approach includes depth coaching, myth and imagination, visual journaling, cognitive behavior change, and mindfulness techniques. Her work is focused on the unconscious and the cultivation of an inner wholeness, which creates a deeper connection with self, others and one’s deepest purpose.
The pervasive symptoms of suffering, stress and burnout, and work and relationship breakdowns, are an invitation to deeper inquiry and a re-membering of ourselves to who we really are. When we find the courage to look closely and inhabit our whole self, meaning, joy and coming home to our highest purpose become abundantly available.

Are you ready for coaching?
Are you ready for a development partner whose sole purpose is to support you to live an extraordinary life?
I have no other agenda than to stand in your corner, help you see your blind spots, champion your learning, and be that guide on your shoulder to remind you of your potential and the possibilities for you life. Our coaching relationship and success is built upon mutual trust, and your personal commitment to learning and growing.
You are ready to increase your self-awareness and see different aspects of your self including personality traits, behaviors, and feelings. You want to understandhow these aspects appear in your life when you are in a variety of situations and emotional states.
You want to get to the root of your thinking patterns and release the stuckness of counter-productive behaviors. We will work together to identify your unique perpectives and thinking patterns and release the traps that keep you experiencing “one foot on the gas, and one foot on the brake”.
Our beliefs, whether they’re empowering or limiting, are a result of our life experiences. They were created because we had an experience and we hold a belief that we can replicate or prevent that experience again. You are ready to not only examine our limiting beliefs but to change them.
Being an effective leader requires your agency to facilitate effective communications, set direction, create alignment, and maintain an engagement environment where people share work.
We look at your role and responsibilities to carry out commitments to the larger organization and your strengths and development needs as it relates to this role.
Individuals who are looking to expanding their leadership agility and capability will work through a series of development activies to challenge themselves into new arenas, to receive feedback and have an accurate perception of how they impact others, and to negotiate differences in a 360′ direction.
Burnout happens when you feel totally depleted, as if your gas
tank of mental and emotional resources has landed on empty. It is
usually the result of extreme demands on one’s time and efforts,
and it is exacerbated when there is no end in sight to the
exhaustion. We feel burnout most acutely when we see little hope
for a better future.
One can think of burnout as an opportunity for innovation – inside
Burnout is also a signpost telling us that it’s time to grow. The
strain and stress indicate that we’re at a “growth edge.” Our
suffering is telling us that it’s time to grow. Growth unfolds when we push ourselves to step across this threshold, to transcend it.
The move from burnout to thriving is a process. It doesn’t happen
all at once. Rather, it’s the product of cultivating a set of
synergistic habits. Like muscles, habits grow stronger the more we
use them. The key is to cultivate a group of habits that will help
you feel good more of the time.
Drawing from 25 years as a leader in learning and leadership development, combined with her own depth work, Terri helps her clients push beyond the limits of outmoded patterns to access their highest power, impact and healing.
Terri offers tools and practices that draw from coaching psychology, mindfulness, Jungian principles, and the expressive arts.
Terri’s guides clients into multiple ways of knowing themselves through holding liminal space, embracing ancient wisdom, shadow work, and creative expression. Her work is focused on the unconscious and the nurturing of an inner wholeness, which creates a deeper connection with self and others.
Terri’s coaching background is an integral, whole person approach. Terri helps clients to see that their mind-emotions-body-relational field-shadow are all integrated. Changes in any one area impacts the others.
Core Coaching Programs
Leadership and personal transformation begin as we bring our attention to vertical development and we become more present, pay attention to our inner world, tune into our mind-body-spirit-shadow, are less reactive, and have more connection to ourselves and others. We begin to release our attachments and habits and expereience more freedom and creativity.
The Self-Authoring Woman
A woman who is deeply connected with herself travels the wheel of the Heroine's Journey. She has the tools for releasing the inherited template of defined roles and behaviors that no longer serves her, she makes meaning of her dreams and inner vision, she is deeply connected to her defined values, and she can activate the visions of her inner world in the outer world.
Visual Journal Coaching
Every journal spread we create has a story to tell. This story is first told in colors, metaphor, symbols, and imagery. You’ll learn to see the patterns in your life and gain new insights into who you are becoming as you tape into your deeper knowing. When combined with coaching, we integrate our many voices and bring new meaning to our personal mythologies.

What My Wonderful Freedom Empowerers Say
Terri is one of the most insightful practitioners I have ever worked with. Her ability to hear the complicated stories of my life and help me make sense of it was second to none. She helped me see the deeper parts of myself while reflecting respect and her enormous heart. I would not hesitate to work with her again and highly recommend her as a truly unique coach and consultant.
“Terri is a terrific coach and mentor, and her work as a leader of online group coaching brings a powerful addition to her portfolio. By taking a holistic approach to coaching, Terri helped me see my motivations, fears, and self-perceptions in a way that I could be more choiceful in my life. Through working with Terri, I developed greater self-awareness about what holds me back, including my own inner critic. This awareness helps me to see a broader perspective so that I’m not as paralyzed or self-doubting in my abilities. Because of my work with Terri, I’ve come out of my protective cocoon and am starting to spread my wings. I’ve identified things that are important to me and moving forward I can now determine the balance I want for myself.”
My team was in need of a thought leader in all things related to coaching, leadership development, and innovative ways to approach transform organizations. We were blessed to have Terri assume this position. She is a true professional, and her consultation was invaluable. She approaches her work with grace, tremendous knowledge, and the ability to help people be their best selves. She continues to be a great asset to me personally and professionally.
Terri is smart, engaging, creative, and warm. She is genuinely interested in helping others grow and in supporting both individuals and the organization. She has a keen understanding of the relationship between workforce and business outcomes and is able to manage controversial stakeholder relationships and maintain good relations. As the coaching sponsor, Terri was very focused on best practices and enhancing the quality of coaching. She worked hard to support her organization get the best and with the coaches to keep commitments. She provided information to help us all be knowledgeable about the organizational culture and leadership models and went out of her way to ensure we had the tools we needed to provide good coaching. She is a terrific partner, always seeking to learn and grow and share. I would recommend Terri highly.
The Women Connected Circle model for deep connection is unsurpassed. Each session was well constructed to carefully and intentionally get each of us to a deeper understanding of ourselves in the presence of one another. There is plenty of safety built in and lots of challenge. After being a part of a Women Connect Circle, I decided to launch my own coaching groups. I have had 7 of them, all very successful and transformational. I wholeheartedly support and love this group work and the women of the world need this experience NOW!
Terri is a true partner/coach to her clients; providing a customized approach to each individual using her extensive tool set from 20 plus years of professional experience. She works effectively with executives at all levels, is able to convey “hard to hear” information and her insight and empathy enables her to identify targeted actions that get results. Coaching is also her passion and her commitment to other’s success creates trust even in the “tough” situations.
Working with Terri is engaging in honest, open, and meaningful conversations that expand and create a vision of what’s possible. I gave myself a wonderful gift when we started our mastermind, she’s a living proof of the power of women joining together in intentional conversations, supporting each others’ goals, and expecting the best of one another. I’ve heard her facilitating women’s groups and applaud the way she encourages amazing, purpose-seeking women to live the life of their dreams.
I was extremely pleased with the level of coaching provided by Terri Altschul. Together, we were able to identify key areas of focus and develop an individualized plan that allowed me to improve my leadership skills within a six month timeframe. I appreciated the personalized approach that she took to ensure I was achieving my optimal performance in managing a large Operations team. The tools, techniques and exercises provided during the sessions were easily incorporated into my professional routines and I quickly found improvements in my team structure and dynamic. In addition, I personally struggled with managing my work/life balance and Terri was able to gently provide techniques to improve in this area. I would highly recommend Terri to anyone who is looking to further strengthen their leadership skills. I am so glad I had the opportunity and committed myself to this process!
I’m so honored to have met Terri! It warms my heart to see how much she cares about people. She has inspired me to go after my dream. She has given me the tools to conquer it, and I can’t thank her enough!!! Since her coaching program, I have decided to live a life with no regrets! I want to live free, bold and sometimes daring (like King Julian in that picture I sent you 🙂 I know I’ll fall down, I know I’ll get hurt, I know sometimes I’ll disappoint people, but now I’m OK with that. Because of the values work she taught me, I’m figuring out when it’s best to forge ahead and not look back, when it’s best to jump in with both feet (or not) and when it’s better to say “no” and go another direction.
Over the past 15 years I’ve participated in many virtual learning cohorts including Ivy League institutions. My experience with Terri’s Group Coaching Program was by far the most engaging, interactive and productive experience I’ve ever had. Without question the most valuable part of the workshop is the group facilitation and private coaching provided by Terri. Terri takes the time to help each participant deeply understand how to approach change in a personal and meaningful way, where you not only see results during the workshop, but you are truly prepared to approach future change needs in a new, productive way.
You’ve heard of the glass ceiling – the pervasive resistance to the efforts of women and minorities to reach the top ranks of management in major corporations.
What if I told you that many women also have an inner glass ceiling?
An “unconscious template” that has been defined for us, by others, and passed down for generations through the motherline.
This unconscious template is encoded with what society thinks is possible, impossible, and what is taboo for women. It tells us what feminine qualities are perceived to have value, and which attributes should be discarded.
In this Live Webinar, Terri will share the 9 Shifts that make it possible for women to release this template and reclaim their voice, authenticity, and belonging.
