Asked Questions

  • What is Life Coaching?
    According to the ICF (International Coaching Federation): ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership. We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.”
  • How does the Client / Coach relationship work?
    The client/coach relationship is client driven. The coach is not the authority of the client’s life. For each call, the agenda is set by the client. Prior to the call, a prep form is sent to the client and is expected to be filled out and sent to the coach 24 hours before the call. The prep form that is used is helpful to the client. The coach is responsible for the coaching process. The client takes responsibility for their progress, decisions, and actions taken after each call. The coaching relationship is ongoing and the coaching process can take months to arrive at a desired outcome for the client. The client and/or coach has the right to stop coaching at any time. If the coach decides to end the coaching relationship, then the coach may also refer the client to another source as needed.
  • What are the benefits of Life Coaching?
    Committing to life coaching has many benefits for the client. Here are some examples: Life Coaching allows the client uninterrupted time for themselves to imagine, dream, contemplate and connect with parts of themselves that they might have forgotten. It allows the client the ability to organize their mind, wants, desires, challenges, and outcomes. Working with a coach will bring forth the best of you through the coach asking you questions that you cannot think to ask yourself on your own. Life Coaching empowers the client to take action on what they really want and they will grow.

  • What is the difference between Life Coaching and therapy?
    Coaching is meeting a client where they are and moving toward the future. The coach is there to facilitate growth and cannot diagnose any mental conditions. The focus is on the present and future and not the past. Coaching is not therapy, psycho-therapy, counseling, advice-giving, mental health care, or treatment for substance abuse. The coach is not a replacement for professional medical advice, financial assistance, legal counsel, or other professional services. If it becomes apparent that the client is in need of any of these services, then the coach will either work in conjunction with another party or the coach will refer the client to the appropriate source and discontinue coaching. When the client is ready to come back to coaching, the coach will continue work.
  • Confidentiality?
    Everything that takes place within the coaching relationship is strictly confidential and will not be shared with any third party without the consent of the client. Everything that is shared with me as your coach is sacred. I take that very seriously and I want you to feel as comfortable as possible! Let’s partner together my dear one! You don’t have to stay stuck! You deserve a life well lived!
