FAQs

What is a coach?
A coach is someone who makes a difference in your life: provides a focused relationship and promotes self-expression and personal and professional development. A coach is someone who wants a lot for you and is committed to your success.
Coaching is a profession with its own procedures, standards, ethics and certification process.

Is a coach like a therapist?
No. A therapist or counselor will usually explore emotional issues and your past or help you cope with crisis. A coach works with you to improve your present situation, enhance the quality of your life and create new possibilities for the future.

What does a coach do?
A coach partners with you to specify what you want, set targets, and to devise and implement effective strategies to reach them. A coach works with you to resolve problems and to stay focused and on track, giving specific suggestions and making requests for action. In other words you identify a gap between where you are and where you want to be.  The coach helps you bridge that gap.

Does it matter where I live?
Not at all! You simply need access to a phone.

How does it work?
Coaching takes place during regular sessions in person or by phone.   Together, you and the coach explore options that help you identify goals, opportunities and areas for personal and professional development.  The coach will help you clarify where you are today, define where you want to be, and develop the steps to get there.

All sessions are confidential.

Can I have a free consultation?
Yes. This is an opportunity for you to clarify how coaching might benefit you. There is no obligation following the call and no fees are charged. A complimentary consultation is a good way for you to meet with a coach and decide whether it’s a good fit.

How long does someone work with a coach?
For coaching to be effective a minimum of three months is the usual term. However, some issues can be quickly resolved by short-term coaching, and others may take longer.
