Q. What is Life Coaching?

A. Think of coaching as a personal trainer for your day-to-day life! Professional coaches provide an ongoing collaborative relationship designed to help you produce fulfilling results in your personal life. Coaches help people enhance the quality of their lives by providing structure and strategic support to create change. Using the tools of agenda, assignments and accountability, life coaching provides a context to talk, choose next steps, and experience results.

Q. What is the difference between coaching and therapy?

A. Therapy frequently addresses emotional symptoms or relationship distress and gets deeper into personal history. Coaching centers on the present and the future and focuses on what can happen. Life coaching clients have worked through and accepted their pasts, and are ready to move forward from functional to exceptional! Life coaching is, however, not a substitute for therapy. If a client is unable to move forward or in emotional distress, therapy is recommended to replace or supplement coaching.

Q. What is a coaching session like?

A. The client sets the agenda for each face or face or phone session and usually lets me know the day before through e-mail where she would like to start. We are usually working on the same issue but, as we all know, life can throw some curve balls so sometimes the theme changes. The coach and client will usually look at what's working well, what isn't, and what changes can be implemented. Options for action are brainstormed and assignments given. The coach's responsibility is to ask powerful questions, listen, focus, clarify, and motivate. The client's responsibility is to bring the agenda, be honest, take responsibility, and do the work. Confidentiality is assured during the entire coaching process.

Assignments are usually given at the end of the session for action plans. A few days before the next session I will email you a few questions to follow up and ask you about the assignments and where you want to start next time. You email me back with your responses and we’re ready jump in again for the next session.

Q. What is the length of a coaching commitment?

A. A typical plan is three phone calls or face to face sessions per month but there is flexibility with that. I ask for a three session commitment at the start but it is common to work together for 3-6 months or longer. At the end of each series, the client chooses to continue or to stop. Successful coaching is enhanced by the connection between coach and client, which deepens over time.

Q. How much are coaching fees?

A. Coaching is an investment in living a fully enjoyed and balanced life.
