COSHOCTON – Maureen Hayes has always had a passion for helping people.

When she was in 10th grade she wanted to go to college and get a degree in a field like education or social work, but her school counselor derailed her dreams.

“I was told those were thankless jobs that didn’t pay much,” Hayes said. “I took that to heart and pursued vocational classes to get out in the workforce.”

She graduated six months early, but wasn’t happy with the jobs she found over the years.

“I spent years in jobs that made me miserable until one day I found myself on the floor looking up at paramedics,” Hayes said. “I thought I was having a heart attack, but they took me to the ER and I found out it was a panic attack. My husband told me to do what I needed to so I could find myself.”

Hayes is now owner of Awaken Your Spirit, which she operates out of The Serenity Studio. She is a transformational, life purpose and career coach and True Colors Personality Assessment Consultant.

“It’s not about changing someone,” she said. “It’s about helping them become the best they can be. Life coaching feels like therapy, but it’s not. The client is the pilot and the life coach is the co-pilot. We ask a lot of questions and may have suggestions, but the client has to agree and be willing.”

Hayes’ coaching niche is helping people find life purpose and doing career coaching. She earned her credentials from the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Tempe, Ariz. and is certified to teach True Colors, which helps people understand their personality.

“I can work with people one-on-one and do True Colors for groups,” Hayes said. “It (True Colors) is really revealing and enlightening. When you understand who you are and what your values are, it makes it easier to make better decisions in life.”

Her ideal client would be someone who is in a rut, feeling lost in life, is about to start college, or in the 10th grade and starting to consider careers to pursue. Sessions with Hayes can last up to 90 minutes, but are typically an hour. She can coach in person, over the phone or through Skype.

“I’ll start by asking them what their intentions are and we will go over True Colors and ask a lot of questions,” Hayes said. “Usually in the first 10 minutes I know whether or not I’m the life coach for someone. If not, I can refer them to someone else.”

The Serenity Studio at 104 S. 16th St. is open by appointment only, but Hayes will be hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. She will have light refreshments and drawings for door prizes that include her services and a handmade dream catcher.
