Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect from coaching?
We usually meet once every 1-2 weeks to maintain momentum.
Sessions are tailored to exactly what you would like to work on. Prior to every session I ask you to fill out a self-reflection form, which helps you to see your progress and identify any issues or obstacles you’ve encountered. It also helps me to see where you’re at.
After each session I email you a summary of what was discussed and include some suggested exercises to do between sessions.
Coaching is like having a best friend who is not afraid to challenge you and hold you accountable. It gives you the support and guidance you need to achieve your goals or work through a difficult time in your life. Coaching focuses on you getting the results you need and empowering and motivating you to live your best life.
What’s the difference between life coaching and counselling?
Coaching focuses solely on the present and the future, and is directed at you achieving your goals. Your life coach provides guidance, rather than advice, because it is important for you to feel empowered and motivated by the conclusions you make yourself. The coach and client are considered equals.
Counselling focuses exclusively on the past. If you’re struggling to work through past traumas or events, counselling is great. Counsellors can offer advice where coaches do not.
Do I really need a coach?
If you’re mulling over the same old questions about where you’re going in life, or you continue to put off taking that next bold step, then a coach will give you the push you need. People who have worked with a life coach often say the experience positively changed their life. And, when people invest in themselves it usually provides that extra motivation to go out there and take action.
A coach holds you accountable, helps you to look at your life from different perspectives and provides the support you need to be your best self and achieve your goals.
