FAQ's about Coaching
What is coaching?
Coaching is a one-to-one relationship during a personal session. It is a way of supporting the individual in a non-directive way. Coaching is not a patch up job, it is not meant to be a temporary fix. It is life changing process which allows you to explore your ideas, fears, goals and challenges, to discover what has been holding you back, to challenge any limiting beliefs and then to replace them with new empowering beliefs and ideas. Coaching will enable you to come up with what you want and then:
Help you to clarify exactly what it is you want to achieve
Evaluate how possible it is to achieve it
Help you identify any obstacles you may have to overcome along the way
Look at all your options
Help you to set and achieve those important goals
Use ‘tools’ and techniques to assist you in moving away from fear of failure and towards confidence at your own pace
How many sessions will I need?
In order to maximise your chances of success, the initial agreement is a minimum of six sessions. Add on sessions can be agreed to suit your needs.
Why is coaching cost effective?
When working with your coach you will be helped to plan how you can get things done in the quickest and most efficient way possible each session, you will take action each day/week (you decide) and start to bring transformation or change that you want into your life.
It is spaced at regular intervals so it can deal with your life issues, goals and situations on an ongoing basis.
It is always supportive and encouraging and is especially useful should you become disillusioned or unsure of your progress.
Remember the truism “if you continue to do what you have always done you will get the results that you have always got”.
We all know life can be hard, but with coaching and time, you will find it life changing. All you need is a desire for change, an open mind and a commitment to take action. You will receive the right support for you to enable you to transform your life as you want to. As individuals we invest money in everyday pleasures such as:
a round of golf
a visit to the hairdresser
having a massage
having your nails done
or any other number of luxury items
These treats are essential and well advised, however, the thrill of them is short-lived, the ‘fix’ has to be repeated on a regular basis, and you still have to go back to the everyday grind of the life you currently live with nothing changed. Your commitment to coaching is an investment in your life and your future, it’s an investment you can’t afford to miss.
Where do you want to be in 5 years’ time? Is it where you are now? If not call me now. The sooner the better.
What happens during a one-to-one coaching session?
During sessions, either over the telephone, Skype or during a one to one meeting, you will explore how far you have come and what your current issue or goal is for the session.
Through the use of powerful and effective questioning along with coaching ‘tools’, it will be possible to identify what is currently working well in your life, what is not working so well, what you want in your life and how to go about getting those things. With your coach’s help:
You will determine the topic to be explored
You will agree to set specific actions during each session, which you will act on over the coming week
You will be made aware of any negative or limiting beliefs or language that you currently practise
You will be listened to carefully and respectfully
You will be supported during all the sessions
You will never be judged nor criticised
You will not be told what to do
You can choose to have personal development exercises to do in between calls
How do I get started?
Please return your questionnaire by email prior to starting your sessions. This gives me a better understanding of what is going on in your life right now and what you want to achieve from coaching. It saves time and ensures you are on the right course of action. Then, please bring your signed contract and payment at the intake session (first session).
