What programs do you offer to support me, in addition to one on one and group coaching?
Do you guarantee results after life coaching?
Would you like to be held responsible for another person’s decisions?
It is common for someone to ask this question; however, it is based on a misunderstanding of what life coaching is and what it is not. Life coaching involves teaching people how to recognize current thinking patterns and results and how to transform them for the purpose of achieving greater and more positive results in all areas of life.
The person being coached is required to learn about and become proficient in using tools, resources, and methods that are used repeatedly in order to generate new more positive results, based on the person’s commitment to their own growth. The coach does not take responsibility for and cannot guarantee what the client will or will not do, but is available to teach, encourage, and inspire the person to use the tools, resources, and methods that create positive results. The person who is receiving life coaching is the client, and the client is who decides what they pay attention to, which determines the quality of their thoughts, emotions, and results. The life coach is a facilitator of improved life results but is not responsible for the decisions and results that a client gets.
Do you guarantee the privacy of my information?

What is the difference between life coaching and counseling?

Do I need to commit to a certain number of life coaching sessions?
It helps to make a commitment. However, it is not really about the number of coaching sessions as much as it is about the client’s level of commitment to themselves, to invest the time, energy, and effort into their own development and having a life that they absolutely love and are excited about.
How many life coaching sessions do I need?
That depends on the client and what they want to accomplish. The more clients invest themselves into life coaching process, using the knowledge, tools, resources, and incorporating the proven, reliable, repeatable methods, the more they do the work, and make it a part of their lifestyle, the better results they can anticipate.
There are no definite number of sessions. The sooner you start shifting out of old mindsets that do not work to new perspectives that generate healthier, more positive results.
When a client does the work and experiences more “light bulb” or “ah-ha” moments, the more they are able to embrace thinking that leads to higher levels of joy and life satisfaction.
How long is each life coaching session?
Whether it is a one-on-one or group coaching session, it lasts one hour for a single session.
How often will I meet my life coach?
That depends on you, the client, and what you and your life coach decide is ideal for you, but usually it is once a week on a designated day and time, for the agreed upon period, except for holidays and vacations. For the best results, I recommend at least a year to work with a life coach, for someone who is looking to remarkably change their lives. For someone who wants to get started and then add services as The least I recommend is six months. Although, on occasion, a person will begin a 3-month program.
For people who are high achievers, life coaching is a part of their recipe for success, and engaging in life coaching becomes a way of life with weekly engagement in a group setting with intermittent one-on-one strategy sessions, because of the superior results that they get since it is a structure of support.
