Patricia Risch – Professional Holistic Life Coach in Denver

I am a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation based in Denver, Colorado and I also see clients in Zürich, Switzerland. A true baby boomer in my heart and mind, I believe everyone has the ability to challenge the status quo and cultivate positive change.

In 1996, we packed up three young children from our 20-acre Vermont homestead and embarked on what turned out to be a 23-year international adventure. We explored, we traveled, and we embraced cultures.

In addition to my private integrative life coaching practice, I worked as a coach, teacher, and counselor at international schools in Spain, Jordan, Pakistan, and Switzerland, with frequent travels to Japan and Serbia. After 17 years living in Zürich, Switzerland, I landed in Denver, Colorado in 2018 and continue to offer private life coaching services.

As a professional holistic life coach based in Denver, I have advanced coach training with inviteCHANGE in Washington. I am a graduate of the Newfield Network ICF Accredited Coach Training Program in Boulder, Colorado and have had Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Training (MBSR) in Zürich, Switzerland. I also hold a Masters of Education degree from the University of Vermont and Positive Psychology Coaching Certification from the Wholebeing Institute. I am certified to administer both the self- and 360-versions of the Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP).

When I am not coaching, you will find me engaged in activities that bring joy and nourish my soul – generative conversations, Pilates, yoga, biking, walking, gardening and hiking.

I am available for transformational life coaching in-person sessions in Denver, Colorado and at various times throughout the year in Zürich, Switzerland. Sessions with clients are also available outdoors, virtually, or by phone.
