As a life coach and a trained professional my aim is to help and guide you to make, meet and exceed your personal and professional goals.
Support you on a journey to rediscover your own strength and abilities: this can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential, managing health conditions and achieving life ambitions.
By harnessing techniques based on core psychological principles and intuition, as a life coach my purpose is to empower you and provide you with a toolkit to confidently face challenges and overcome barriers.
As a life coach I won’t tell you what to do, instead resort to questioning techniques to help you uncover the answers yourself. Also, provide an objective and empowering environment for you to explore any challenges you’re facing.
At the heart of it all lies the idea that you must be given the power to help yourself. Offering advice, opinions and judgements would undermine some of the basic principles behind life coaching.
Part of my role is to be an active listener that can pick up from your voice what you are really thinking and will facilitate you to take actions to move yourself towards your goals. We will celebrate your successes, help you discover how to overcome obstacles, identify your strengths and weaknesses, and enable you to move forward at a far greater pace, with the ultimate aim of you achieving your goals and discovering a much happier life.
How do I choose a life coach?
Our coaching relationship is based on trust – it’s crucial that you feel able to express yourself openly and safely with your life coach. My advice is to have a quick phone chat, and then trust your intuition or gut feeling. Am I someone who you are comfortable talking to? Do you think I am the best fit to help you with your specific situation? What are the prices for coaching?
What happens during a coaching session?
Our life coaching sessions will typically be 60 mins session. Often, after an initial assessment, sessions can be conducted face-to-face or remotely, usually via video calls.
During the session, as your life coach I will ask you some questions, such as what you want to achieve in your life? what areas you’re unhappy with and where you’d like to see yourself in the future? Although we will work together, it is often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas you have, to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don’t feel comfortable with, allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings privately and in our safe space.
Where does the life coaching session take place?
Our sessions are typically conducted in-person, over the phone or video conference. This allows you the freedom to take sessions from your home, office or any location. It makes it easier to stay consistent with less of a time commitment. I’m happy to arrange in-person sessions, either at your location or in public (park, café, etc.). Please feel free to ask for more details.
How long does the life coaching process take?
The time frame can vary greatly and depends on a wide range of factors: your goal(s), your commitment and openness to change, your capacity for introspection, your circumstances, how quickly and thoughtfully you complete homework assignments, and other unique factors.
I have individuals who come in for a very brief engagement (e.g. one mock interview coaching session). I have others who come in focused on one goal, achieve that goal, and begin to work on another goal and then another. Those individuals who partner with me in multiple capacities and for multiple goals work with me for a year or more.
How often should I meet with my life coach?
We meet once a week or every 10 days. Through my experience and testing of different time frames, I’ve found that this frequency yields the greatest returns in terms of change. Meeting once a week or every 10 days offers time for reflection and application of learning between sessions, while maintaining the momentum of our work together.
What is expected of me?
Come as you are, with whatever it is you are going through, whether you are stuck in your life, feeling down, frustrated or unsure where to even start.
I promise I will give you 100% of me and in return I need you to also give me 100% effort. I believe that is a fair deal.
Think of me as your new friend who has tools and skill sets to guide you into achieving your goals.
Let us be totally open, trusting and honest with our coaching relationship, let us get in touch with our inner-child and set it free and also have the time and commitment to complete the fun tasks that we will set together after each session. These tasks are what will move you closer to your overall goal. Ultimately your level of commitment will directly influence the speed and extent to which your goals will be realized.
Remember you are not alone in this, we will be working side by side to provide you with boundless motivation, support and encouragement within a confidential and non-judgmental environment.
When can I expect to see results?
If you’re ready to start taking action today, you’ll notice immediate change. 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 more time. 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.
Is our life coaching session confidential?
Yes. Of course. No one will know that we are working together unless you tell them. Details of our sessions are never discussed with anyone.
What if I want to end my coaching engagement?
You may choose to terminate our agreement at any time, although it is helpful for me as a coach to have a week’s notice in order to prepare a final session that focuses on review and closure. Ultimately, that decision is up to you.
Coaching packages are non refundable and none transferable.
