Common Questions

What is a Life Coach?

A life coach helps you move forward and accomplish those goals that might have you stuck, helps you gain clarity in areas that you need direction on and helps you create balance by helping you focus on those things that are most important to you.

What types of people have Life Coaches?

People who are committed to making a change in their life and moving forward to create the life that they have always wanted.  They know that it will take work to attain their goals but they are willing to commit what it takes to get them there.

How will Life Coaching help?

It will help you gain clarity and balance and give you a time where you can be free to open up and begin to work on those areas that are most important to you.  It is a safe time where you will create the space you need to look deeply into yourself and develop a plan.

What happens in a Life Coaching Session?

We will create a focus on what you want to accomplish during each session.  Each session we will work on that 1 thing that is most important to you at the time to help you achieve your overall goals.

Do I really need a personal Coach, can’t I just do it by myself?

Most times we get stuck because we can’t see the forest through the trees.  A coach helps you see things from a different point of view and helps create those ‘aha’ moments where you own and walk  away with a solution that will work for you.  I will help you notice things you may be saying repeatedly and not recognizing yourself and listen deeply to those things that you may not be saying.

How is Coaching different from Therapy?

Coaching is focused on the future where therapy is focused on the past.  We will set goals always thinking about the future in mind, where you want to be.  We may look at where you have been to help you overcome your current challenge but we work on your strengths to help you move forward.

What is your cancellation policy?

I ask that you contact me at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel our session.

How long do people generally work with a Life Coach?

I would ask that you commit to at least 3 months and then we can evaluate where you are at.  We work on things that require at least that amount of time to help you move forward.

Is personal life coaching confidential?

All of our conversations are confidential and not shared with others.  Our discussions are not privileged for legal purposes as they exist for clergy and other types of professional that are not granted to coaches.
