What to Expect in Life Coaching

life coach vision

What is a Life Coach?

As a life coach, I empower you to set goals and establish accountability for personal and professional success. I guide you as you articulate your aspirations, clarify the choices before you and create action plans to achieve your goals. You set the agenda, and I serve as an objective sounding board to help keep you focused and on track. I help you break through old barriers and develop new practices so you can reach your desired goals.

How Does Life Coaching Differ from Therapy?

Although life coaching and therapy can complement each other, life coaching is not therapy. Through coaching you develop strategic actions to help you move forward. Coaching does not attempt to explain behaviors, delve into your past, or identify pathology.

Who Comes to Life Coaching?

My clients come to coaching because they want to change something in their lives or business and they want help along the way. By hiring me as their coach, they are committed to living their lives to the fullest.

What Happens in Life Coaching?

Before you can go anywhere, you have to know where you are starting. I will send you forms to help you clarify and help me understand what you want and need out of coaching.

Following this, we will start our regular sessions (one to four sessions/month) where I will ask you questions and lead you through exercises related to your goals. By the end of each session, we will develop a homework assignment to give you a clear sense of what to focus on in preparation for our next session. I'm also available for email check-ins in between sessions. If you truly commit to the process, you will find that the real benefits of coaching show up between the sessions.

What is Your Coaching Style?

As a coach, it is my mission to create a safe and respectful environment in which my clients feel both supported and challenged as they work towards their goals. My coaching style has been described as warm, direct, and fun. I push my clients out of their comfort zones but not beyond their limits. I am there to celebrate their successes and to support them when they stumble. I also love to laugh and believe that humor is necessary on the road to success.

What Can I Expect From Life Coaching?

Although the coaching experience is different for everyone, my clients report common outcomes. As a result of coaching, my clients report that they are better able to effect change and accomplish goals. In addition, my clients enjoy increased self-esteem, improved communication skills, enhanced relationships, better work/life balance and less stress. They are better able to make decisions and navigate the daily demands of their jobs and home lives. They have a clearer sense of what is important to them and how they want to live their lives. They feel better physically, more connected spiritually, and are finally moving forward towards definitive goals.

What Are the Benefits of Phone Coaching?

Coaching over the phone allows you to open up more fully and provides you with flexibility in your environment. Instead of worrying about what you may look like when you get emotional, you are in the privacy of your own home so you can really focus on the work at hand. Or you may prefer to bring your cell phone to your favorite location where you feel most relaxed, creative or energized. Again, coaching is all about you – so you get to decide. Coaching over the phone also allows you to work with me regardless of the country, city or state in which you live.

[ back to top ]

What About Confidentiality?

Everything we talk about is 100% confidential and unless you tell someone that we are working together (or give me your express permission to do so) no one will know that we have spoken.

[ back to top ]

How long does coaching take?

There are no long-term commitments.  You can leave at any time if you're not getting a ton of value out of every single session.  However, if you're serious about achieving your specific goals, I suggest you make a mental commitment to yourself for at least three months of coaching.

What is your availability?

I work with individual clients Mon-Fri 8:45am-2:15pm pacific and am usually available for our first session a week or two after your initial inquiry.

The Coaching Process

life coaching process

Coaching is highly customized to fit your needs and no two coaching relationships are the same. Depending on your specific coaching goals, we may work together to:

  • Determine your vision for personal and professional success
  • Identify your core values, strengths and priorities so you can better leverage and honor them in your personal and professional life
  • Develop a self-care practice that will best serve you and support you in achieving your goals
  • Identify and manage fear, doubt, worry or guilt that interferes with the changes you want to make in your life
  • Develop new best practices for time management and/or stress management
  • Identify and re-work negative perspectives, patterns or old ways of thinking that no longer serve you or the pursuit of your goals
  • Break down your goals into small, achievable action steps that are big enough to move you forward and small enough to be realistic. Realistic goals are key to success.
  • Determine what will best motivate you and hold you accountable to your goals

In my coaching practice there are no commitments, contracts or rigid schedules. We schedule sessions for when it best serves you - for most new clients this is usually once every 1-3 weeks. Sessions last up to 45 minutes and each session comes with a money-back guarantee.
