What happens in a Life Coaching or Relationship Coaching Session?
Every session is designed for your needs as my client. In the beginning, we will discuss what you are committed to accomplishing through our work together and we will begin creating a plan to help you achieve your goals. Periodically, I will give you assignments to help direct your progress. We will work together to acknowledge obstacles, explore alternative perspectives and celebrate your successes. With the conclusion of each session, we will revisit your goals and evaluate the next steps that are needed to achieve these results.
Do I really need a personal Coach, can’t I just do it by myself?
Life coaching can take you above and beyond your own personal limitations. More often than not, people try to achieve their greatest potential, but don’t even realize what stands in their way. A personal Coach can offer an unbiased and objective perspective, and can help you realize your patterns and habits. Most people experience that they are more efficient when working with a Professional Life Coach and that this provides the opportunity for them to better realize their potential. Life coaching can make your dreams attainable and will give you support and encouragement along the way.
How is Coaching different from Therapy?
While the life coaching I provide can be therapeutic, it is not intended to be therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not specifically designed to address psychological issues. That being said, as emotional issue arise we will discuss them and evaluate a solution-focused course of action.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require a 48 hour notice to cancel all sessions. Please be sure to contact me if you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment in order to avoid being charged for the session.
How long do people generally work with a Life Coach or Relationship Coach?
To experience the effectiveness of a life coaching program, I strongly suggest clients make an initial three-month commitment. It takes this length of time to release old patterns and establish more positive practices. At the end of the three months, we will evaluate progress and discuss options for continued coaching as it may be appropriate for you.
Is Life Coaching & Relationship Coaching confidential?
What we discuss will be held in strict confidence and not shared outside of our sessions, unless you give me written permission. However, our discussions are not confidential for legal purposes. The privilege of confidentiality existing for therapists, clergy and attorneys is not granted to coaching professionals. That said, life coaching is a confidential process, and your personal information and the contents of our sessions is protected.
