Live the life you want through coaching
What to expect from a coaching session
Expect to be listened to at a very deep level.
Expect to have to tell the truth about yourself and your thoughts.
Expect to be asked questions to dig into this truth.
Expect, on occasion, to be asked direct or challenging questions.
Expect to encounter your true self and grow from the experience.
During a coaching session you will be asked questions around the particular topic or topics you wish to work on. This will allow you to begin to explore it for yourself.
In this session you are listened too without any judgement.
We will dig into your answers to get to the truth of your position around the topic. At times I may ask direct and challenging questions as we are searching for particular answers. As a coach I may suggest certain coaching models that would best suit your goals for the session(s).
The coach creates the space and facilitates the session, the deep work is completed by you.
Before starting a coaching relationship
Prior to any first coaching session we will always have a discovery/consultation call – this is free.
This call is to ensure you are right for coaching and coaching is right for you. I believe everyone needs a coach, however everyone is not ready for coaching. This discovery call is to get to know each under, build trust, and ensure we are right for each other before embarking on a coaching relationship.
Coaching requires trust, honesty and commitment to get the true benefits
Mechanics of individual coaching session
Coaching sessions will either be on Zoom or can be in person as agreed. Each session will last around 1 hour.
You can take some notes if required, however all sessions finish with a recap of the session and a confirmation of the agreed actions to take prior to the next session.
Coaching is usually weekly, however it can be bi-weekly, monthly or even longer. Some clients only ask for a single session also. The frequency of the coaching is determined by you. What you want to work on, the actions you need to take after the session and how quickly you want to jump back in.
The average number of sessions I work with a client for is 4 to 6.
What to Bring
Bring all of yourself. Bring your honesty. Bring your truth. Bring your commitment.
If you do this, you can have a very powerful coaching experience
What about confidentiality
Every conversation we have is 100% confidential. I provide a contract to all clients before we start working together. This contract covers your rights in relation to your data. You will see that I take some notes during the session. These are notes of something you have said or particular language used that I deem valuable and may need to return to in this session or in later session. These notes can be viewed by yourself at any point if desired.
