Got Questions?  I've got answers.

Below are some commonly asked questions about Life Coaching.

What type of person employs a life coach?

Someone who is looking to challenge themselves and change their life by meeting their goals. Yes, everyone is coach-able.

What can I expect?

The coaching process involves the discovery session where you and I take a look at your present situations and identify areas you'd like to change. After the discovery, coaching sessions are focused on your goals.

Typical sessions range from 60-90 minutes. Once you've built a relationship with your coach, it typically takes between 3-6 months for you to achieve what you desire.  A variety of packages are available.

How does it work?

Coaching is generally one-on-one. It can be face-face, over the phone or online.

What is my investment?

What are you willing to invest in order to create the life you want?

Depending on your level of commitment there is a package that is right for you.  Your package will include the tools and confidence you need to navigate life. Contact me for a FREE consultation or for more information.

How is coaching different from therapy?

Coaching is different from therapy in many ways.  It's a profession that supports personal and professional growth.  It is based on individual-initiated changes in pursuit of specific actionable outcomes (personal and professional successes).

Therapy, on the other hand, deals with healing pain, dysfunction and conflict within an individual or a relationship between two or more people.  Therapy outcomes often include enhanced emotional/feeling states.

Life coaching is future-focused. Its primary focus is on creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals in your work or personal life.  The emphasis in a coaching relationship is on action, accountability and follow through.

What should I look for in a coach?

The coaching relationship is essential. Therefore it is a good idea to find a coach that you “click” with.  A free consultation is a great way to determine if it is a good fit.

I recommend you find a coach that has experience working with the issues you are facing. Also, take into consideration your coaches qualifications and organization memberships. Testimonials are another great way for you to get a feel for a coach.
