One of the objectives of the complimentary consultation is to ensure that the Coach and client are good fit.
Q: What kinds of people work with a Life Coach?
A: Every type of individual from college students to retirees can benefit from Life Coaching and I’ve coached them all. One trait that clients generally have in common, is the desire to improve their life and the realization that they will gain focus and accomplish their goals faster with the support of a highly trained and qualified Life Coach. People who partner with a Life Coach are usually committed to creating a more fulfilling life and are willing to do the work needed to get there.
Q: How long are the sessions?
A: Coaching sessions are approximately 50 minutes. Sessions may be weekly, bi-weekly or monthly and can be tailored to suits your needs and the speed at which you choose take action to achieve your goals. Additional 5-10 minute Laser Coaching support is included between sessions, via phone, email, or text to support, encourage, and offer accountability, and to help keep clients on track.
Q: How many Coaching sessions will I need?
A: This will all depend on what you want to achieve with your Coaching. Clients typically seek Coaching with a life changing goal in mind. In order to achieve success, we set smaller goals that need to be achieved between sessions, to move you closer to your overall goal. For many clients this may take as little as 5 sessions and for others it will require more. It is a very personal decision based on your individual goal and where you are in your journey.
Q: Where or how does Coaching take place?
A: Because I coach clients from all over the world, Coaching sessions will typically take place over the phone, or through Skype. Occasionally, if geographically feasible, we may meet in person. Extra support and accountability is offered through emails, texts, or follow-up calls between sessions and this is included in the cost of coaching sessions. This is often referred to as Laser Coaching.
Many times valuable tests, assessments, and resources are emailed between Coaching sessions as well. Between sessions, one of my responsibilities as your Life Coach, is to determine helpful resources that may assist you in your journey forward. Whether it be an article, book, video, research, or assessment I might suggest or offer, my job is to support your journey even when we are not in session together. You also will have homework to do between sessions, because it is often said that the real work gets done between sessions.
Q: What is the cost of Life Coaching?
A: Each new potential client and connection begins with a complimentary consultation of approximately 30 minutes to determine if we are a good fit for each other. From there several Coaching packages are available.
These include any needed assessments, tests, and virtually unlimited follow-up calls, emails, and texts between sessions, as needed. It’s possible, that Life Coaching may even be a business tax deduction, depending on your individual situation, so you may wish to consult your tax professional.
Q: What is the difference between counseling and Life Coaching?
A: Coaching and Counseling have some similarities as counselors and coaches both ask their client questions that require honesty and soul-searching.
However, counseling tends to focus with emotions, issues, and trauma in the past. Life Coaching, rather, is focused on the future and is a creative process of change.
A Life Coach is someone who is solely dedicated to you and the achievement of your goals. A Life Coach is non-judgmental, supportive, encouraging and motivating while keeping you focused on where you want to be and moving you forward in the right direction. A gifted Life Coach will enable you to get to where you want to be much faster than you could on your own. Counseling can free people from their pasts. Life Coaching can change peoples’ legacies.
Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
Q: What do Essential Oils have to do with Life Coaching?
A: I coach from a holistic and integrative perspective which includes mind, body, and spirit. I have found Essential Oils to be extremely beneficial for many of my clients whether it be to enhance and support relaxation, stress management, creativity, or to support Special Needs children and their many behavioral challenges.
If a client is open to learning more about how Essential Oils directly affect the limbic system of the brain, moods, memory, productivity, and the immune system, I am happy to share resources, research, and even samples, and suggestions. Essential oils and the plants that produce them are referenced more than 500 times in the Bible. Just in the Old Testament alone, they are referenced in 36 of 39 books. In the New Testament, they are referenced in 10 of the 27 books. But Coaching is very much, client driven, and if this is not of interest to the client, that is perfectly fine and never pushed.
James 5:14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.
