About Coach In Your Pocket:

Coach in Your Pocket is a revolutionary new way of working with a coach. Developed by Nancy Jane Smith of Live Happier, this new methodology was especially designed for people with High Functioning Anxiety.

As opposed to traditional in-person therapy sessions, Coach in Your Pocket gives you support in the moment, when you need it most. Using a convenient and user-friendly app called Voxer, you can leave Nancy a voice or text message at any time, 24/7, whenever you are struggling or having a panic attack or are pushing yourself too hard.

Imagine being able to reach a trusted, knowledgeable expert in High Functioning Anxiety at any time of day, any day of the week.

Imagine not having to wait until your scheduled session to vent, ask questions, get clarification, and celebrate victories.

That is how Coach in Your Pocket works.

This type of work is a game-changer.

Clients progress so much faster with this instant access because you can deal with your anxiety in the moment – without waiting for your next appointment.

In addition to unlimited Voxing throughout the three-month program, you will meet with Nancy once a month to dive deeper and continue to work toward long-term, lasting change.

Coach in Your Pocket is a three-month coaching program and Nancy would love to offer your listeners 20% off the price for 2 weeks after the podcast episode airs.
