How It Works
What can I expect from Life Coaching?
If you are coached by me, you can expect tangible and real solutions to life challenges. Coaching seeks results to dramatically improve specific areas of your life which enrich life effectiveness, learning and personal growth. The goal of coaching is for you to walk away with greater choice and peace in the face of stress or overwhelm. My role as a Coach is to facilitate YOU taking hold of what you want to maximize your life.
Where and how do we do a coaching session?
Together we schedule appointments to fit your specific needs. I normally arrange in-person sessions, either at your location or mine. Coaching sessions are typically around 60 minutes depending on the issue.
You can choose what you want to work on and lead the conversation, or follow my suggestions and recommendations.
Phone / Skype Sessions are also available – these are particularly helpful when travel distance is an issue.
What’s the difference between a coaching and therapy or counseling?
Coaching and therapy can be used separately or together. They both can help you to build a strong foundation for your life, but have a few fundamental differences.
Counseling helps you to untangle your past and to heal emotional pains and bring closure to troubling events.
Coaching looks at where you are at right now and towards what you want from life. It focuses on the present, and assists you in moving forward to a more fulfilling and balanced future. Coaches are collaborators and specialists. Unlike therapists, they do not diagnose or treat mental disorders.
Is it confidential?
Yes – Of course. No one will know that we are working together unless you tell them. As with other health professionals – your privacy is honoured and respected.
How do sessions work over the phone?
Today, many / most coaches work with their clients over the phone.
Coaching is about strategy, accountability and acquiring new skills for personal and professional success. It’s not as intimate as therapy, and not meant to be; it’s a little more results driven. Some coaches say that clients they work with over the phone move forward MUCH more quickly than people who opted to work one-on-one in person for weekly sessions. Having a bit of personal space during sessions can take away a lot of the pressure that we tend to feel in face to face meetings, and allows us to get to the core issues much more quickly.
It can also make sessions easier to commit to, and stay consistent with – even when traveling or faced with tight schedules.
How do I know if Life Coaching is right for me?
- Are you looking for outside support and guidance, someone to bounce ideas off of?
- Could you use some help in dealing with stress, daily pressures and a continued feeling of overwhelm?
- Are you ready to get strategic about next steps and get into action where you may have been stuck or procrastinating?
- Would you love to design a business and a career instead of just letting it happen?
- Can you imagine creating something totally new and infinitely better?
- Would you like a step-by-step method to decide what to do next?
- Is it time to let go of some of the struggles and try something new?
If you’ve answered “yes” to 3 or more of these questions, you are a very good candidate for coaching…. consider this your invitation. Without direction and action, the lives we most want exist only in our imaginations. Sometimes, it’s working one-on-one with a professional that can make all the difference.
When can I expect to start seeing results?
If you’re ready to start taking action today, you’ll notice immediate change. But bigger goals simply take longer. The reality you have today wasn’t created overnight, and the new reality you’re looking for will take a little time too. Coaching over a period of time, combined with consistent action is by far the best way to produce long term, sustainable results and incredible transformations’
