What is coaching and what are the benefits?

What is it? The International Coach Federation defines coaching as "partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential." The International Association of Coaching defines it as a "transformative process for personal and professional awareness, discovery and growth, and the expansion of possibilities." Some Benefits -Finding clarity -Reaching deeper levels of fulfillment through creating a clear vision for your future -Uncover the unconscious thoughts -Get beyond your limiting beliefs -Life coaching is about partnership and accountability. As the client, you will be guided and supported through your achievement of goals. Life coaching is not consulting, advising, counseling, or psychotherapy.

Is life coaching for everyone?

No. If you are looking for and willing to do the following, life coaching could benefit you, and so could MY life coaching services!

  • Looking for support and guidance towards achieving your goals
  • An accountability partner to help you stay on track
  • Coachable-you are willing to be guided and make changes
  • Willing to collaborate
  • Willing to devote time and energy to make realistic changes
  • Looking to move forward with your life goals
In coaching, you are investing in life transformation and not a product, and a major component of the successful transformation is the work and dedication you put in!

How long is the coaching process?

Life coaching sessions will typically last between 45- 60 minutes. As far as the duration of the overall process, according to the International Coaching Federation, “the length of a coaching partnership varies depending on the individual's or team's needs and preferences. For certain types of focused coaching, three to six months of working may work. For other types of coaching, people may find it beneficial to work with a coach for a longer period.” Everyone is different, and so are their needs.

What are the delivery methods of the coaching session

You can be coached in person, by phone, or video. It all depends upon the coach, your preference, and coaching program. I offer each, pending program you select (The Accountability Intensive is virtual only)--See program page for details.

How much does coaching cost?

The average life coach charges $200-1,000 a month. Some coaches charge per hour while others charge by program. To serve my clients at the highest level, I have coaching programs, as there is more commitment to self and the process that way.
