Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

 

Coaching, as defined by the ICF is the act of partnering with your client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential. 

Basically, it’s a dance between the coach and client being fully present in the moment to unlock untapped potential, imagination, ideas, knowledge and / or confidence. 

As an ICF certified coach, I believe and know that my clients have all they need within them. Sometimes it just takes coaching to see it, tap into it, or feel it. 

 


How is coaching different from mentoring or therapy?
 

In a nutshell, coaching is non-directional and forward focused. 
While mentoring i
s directive (someone tells you what to do) and therapy focuses on the past, coaching is about seizing the opportunities and leanings of the present to create momentum and growth for you what to create in life. 

 


What am I, as the client, responsible for during coaching?
 

This is what I ask from my clients:

  • Show up

  • Be willing to do the work

  • Be honest, with yourself

Will you offer advice? 

 

No. I know that may not be what you want to hear, but it’s the truth. As a coach, I won’t offer advice. Why? Context is why - because of the different contexts of our lives, our experiences, our motivations, our abilities; the advice that I offer may not be relevant to you and therefore ultimately unhelpful. What I would say is influenced by my life, not by yours. Coaching is about you discovering what is best for you based on your context so that you are motivated from your own intentions to create change, pursue goals, or whatever YOU want.
