What sorts of people have a Personal Life Coach?
From my experience every type of individual will come to me for coaching. The only traits these people have in common is the desire to change part of their life so they are happier, and the realisation that they will stay focused and get there quicker with the support of a coach.
What happens during a coaching session?
In general terms, during each session we will recap on the actions set and achieved from the last session and look at general progress and successes. First, we will get a clear idea of what the main goal is for the course of sessions. We then explore all the possible options in achieving that goal, using lots of techniques to really extract options that you have never thought of before. During each session we will have a look at ‘barriers’ of success and address them. Lastly and most importantly we look at what actions you want to set yourself from the list of options to achieve that session’s goal.
How long are the coaching sessions?
A Coaching sessions takes approximately 50 minutes. These sessions can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly, whatever suits your life and the speed at which you can take actions to achieve your goals.
How many Life or Career Coaching sessions will I need?
This depends on what you want to achieve with your coaching. Most people come to a Personal Coach with a life changing goal in mind. In order to achieve this we look at smaller goals, that need to be achieved each session, to move you closer to your overall goal. For some people this may take as little as 6 sessions and for others it will be more. It is a very personal decision based on your individual goal.
Where does the coaching take place?
In the majority of cases the coaching will take place on line. This has proven to be the most convenient way for individuals to fit coaching into their busy lives. You will need a quiet room with no distractions where you can totally focus on the conversation. Face to face coaching is available, please inquire.
How much does it cost?
Coaching costs about the same amount of money as seeing any health professional. Sessions prices are as low as £60 and last approx 50 minutes. This really is a very small price to pay for the life changing experience that you desire. For more information on packages and prices CLICK HERE.
What will I have to do?
To get the best from Coaching, you need to be open to the possibility of change and honest within the coaching relationship. You need to have the time and commitment to complete the actions that you will set yourself at the end of each session. These actions are what will move you closer to your overall goal. Ultimately your level of commitment will directly influence the speed and extent to which your goals will be realised. To help you with all of this, the coach provides support and encouragement within a confidential and non-judgemental environment.
What are the benefits of Personal Life Coaching?
The benefits of Life Coaching are having someone that is solely dedicated to you and the achievement of your goals. They are non-judgemental, supportive, encouraging and motivating just when you need it. They keep you focussed on where you want to be and moving forward in the right direction. They will enable you to get to where you want to be in life, much faster than you could on your own.
How is Coaching different from counselling?
Coaching and counselling are similar in the sense that both counsellors and coaches ask the client questions, sometimes requiring a lot of soul-searching. Neither a counsellor nor a coach will give advice but they will listen to what you say and direct the conversation with further pertinent questions. However, whereas the typical counselling session will be dealing with emotions and issues in the past affecting the present, the coaching relationship is focussed on the future and deals with optimising the opportunities in your life for you to ultimately achieve greater happiness.
