Why Coaching? What is Coaching? Do I need Coaching? Here are some answers to frequently asked questions.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a process with the goal to improve performance and focuses in the ‘here and now’ rather than in the distant past or future. There are many different models of coaching yet here we are not considering the ‘coach as the expert’ but, instead, the coach as a facilitator of learning.
There is a difference between teaching someone and helping them to learn. In coaching, primarily, the coach is helping the individual to improve their own performance: in other words, helping them to learn.
How does coaching differ from therapy?
Coaching is not the same as therapy or counseling. Counseling and therapy delve into the past and may also deal with mental health issues. Coaching focuses on moving forward and is not used to treat mental health issues. Although coaches may look at past practices and habits, the focus is more on empowerment and removing blocks that prevent you from reaching your full potential. Like counseling and therapy, coaching is completely confidential and free of judgement.
What results could I get from using a Coach?
You can expect to reach your goals; accomplish more while reducing stressed; feel motivated and encouraged; be empowered to meet life's challenges head-on; to accomplish things that you dreamed.
What to expect.
Through our first complimentary session, we will identify what you would like to achieve. If we both agree that we can work together toward that goal. We will then establish an agreement outlining terms and meeting times that are convenient for you. I ask that you make a commitment for at least two to three months to give yourself a chance to work on that goal. After that, we can adjust your sessions accordingly. Sessions can be held over the telephone, or through video conference. If you are more comfortable with face-to-face meetings, that can be arranged depending on geographical logistics.
