FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT COACHING!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COACHING, COUNSELLING/THERAPY?
Coaching works on your present, and working towards your future, and how to achieve what you want from life. Counselling/therapy tends to focus on past trauma and hurts, and how they may be affecting you now.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A COACHING SESSION?
In the coaching session the client is fully in control.
At the beginning of the session the coach and client discuss what progress has been made since the last session.
We also discuss any thoughts or breakthroughs the client has encountered. If no action has been taken then the client and coach will discuss what has happened to prevent the client from taking action.
We will then discuss what the client wants to get out of this session. The clients and coach then explore the outcome that is desired from this session together.
The coach will use tools and strategies and also powerful questioning to help the client come to some clarity and conclusions on the issue in hand.
By the end of the session the client should leave feeling much more in control of the issue in hand.
DO I HAVE TO LIVE NEAR THE COACH?
No I coach using skype or the phone. I coach people from all over the world.
If you don’t have skype it is extremely easy to set up and I can talk you through it.
This offers both you and me the freedom of time with no travel expenses added to fee.
I do offer 1-2-1 face to face coaching at a higher investment from the client.
WHAT IF I BRING UP THINGS THAT MAKE ME FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE?
A good coach will never ask you to talk about anything you don’t want to. However a good coach will challenge you to take a good look at what is holding you back, and making you feel uncomfortable.
If you are not willing to slowly reach out of your comfort zone to reach forward in your life and make changes, then maybe you are not ready for coaching yet.
IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME IF I FEEL I NEED COACHING?
Absolutely not, you the client chose to be coached.
You may have become aware that you are not moving forward at the rate you would like. Coaching works on the positive parts of your life and works towards adding to your strengths and dealing with your weaknesses’ so they no longer have a hold over you.
I am here to support you. Sometimes just saying things out loud makes them real. None of us are broken just a bit bent. This might be the first time that someone has actually listened to you with no judgement.
You are one of the few people who make the decision to make a change in their lives. You should be proud.
HOW MUCH DOES COACHING COST
Coaching is an investment and I don’t personally work on an hourly rate. I have packages of 30, 60, days of coaching, or a six month commitment of which more details can be found here. The longer the course you invest in the more discount you get.
If you are finding the thought of such a large investment challenging then consider what changes you want to create in your life through coaching. Now how much are these changes worth to you, if you achieve them?
WHY CAN YOU HELP ME?
I feel your pain, I have been in various situations in my life and experienced feelings of being stuck with the life I had.
I was my own worst enemy and allowed the feelings of self doubt and self sabotage slow my progress down. I made it my business to learn strategies and tools to deal with my fears.
I then made it my mission to obtain the skills and qualifications to teach others what I had learned
