What is a Life Coach?
A Life Coach is someone who aims to help and empower others to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. By implementing special techniques, based on core psychological principles and natural intuition, Life Coaches provide clients with the tools to confidently face difficult situations, push past emotional barriers and eventually view life with fresh, hopeful and enlightened eyes. You can also use a coach for support to keep your emotional balance in difficult times.
What is Coaching?
Professional Coaching focuses on setting goals, creating outcomes and managing personal change. Coaching requires a mastery of advanced communication and skills, coupled with experience, knowledge and a special commitment to helping other thrive. Coaching is not about giving you the answers. It is really about helping you figure out your own answers. Coaching Sessions can also help you to make better decisions that directly impact your future.
How is Life Coaching different from Counselling and Therapy?
The difference between Counselling and Life Coaching is that Counselling usually investigates the roots and causes of potential mental health problems, whereas Life Coaching focuses mainly on the future to encourage personal-development and self-improvement.
Coaching is not therapy. While therapy focuses on feelings and understanding the past, Coaching is action oriented. Life Coaches are not qualified to diagnose or treat any health-related problems.
How is Coaching delivered?
Coaching typically begins with a personal interview, either face-to-face or by teleconference call, to assess the individual's current opportunities and challenges, define the scope of the relationship, identify priorities for action and establish specific desired outcomes. Subsequent coaching sessions may be conducted in person or over the telephone.
What does the process look like?
Between scheduled coaching sessions, the individual may be asked to complete specific actions that support the achievement of one's personally prioritized goals. The Coach may provide additional resources in the form of relevant articles, checklists, assessments or models to support the individual's thinking and actions. If you rely on your Coach’s expertise you will find that you are better able to stay on track with your emotions.
This will depend on what you want to achieve with your coaching. In order to achieve a major change, we look at smaller goals, that need to be reached on each session, to move you closer to your overall goal. For some people this may take as little as 8 sessions and for others it will be more. It is a very personal decision based on your individual goal.
Can I afford a Life Coach?
Yes, you can. Every situation is different so I offer different options according to your needs. You may find that single sessions are better for you at a determined moment depending on the goal. Package sessions will save you money! The more sessions you buy the more discount you will get. I also offer flat fees in Divorce cases because I commit to you for the duration of the process not matter how long this may take. A divorce, a separation, and a loss of a loved one are life changing events, no one should go through them alone.
