Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching and how can it help me?

Coaching is a personalized, one-on-one relationship where a coach helps you identify your goals, develop actionable steps toward reaching those goals, and provides support and guidance along the way. It can help by providing clarity, motivation, and accountability to help you achieve your personal or professional goals.

How is coaching different from therapy?

While both coaching and therapy provide support, they have different focuses. Therapy generally focuses on healing from past traumas and emotional issues, whereas coaching is future-focused, aiming to help you reach specific personal or professional goals. Coaching also relies more on action-oriented strategies, while therapy is more exploratory in nature.

Is everything I share with my coach confidential?

Yes, ethics and confidentiality are paramount in coaching. Everything you share with your coach will remain confidential, unless there is a risk of harm to you or others.

What can I expect from coaching?

Coaching offers a platform for self-exploration and personal development, enabling you to identify and work towards achieving your goals. It provides strategies, tools, and support needed to tackle challenges, make informed decisions, and create meaningful and sustainable change.

I don't consider myself a creative person, but I have ideas that I want to pursue. Can I still benefit from coaching?

Absolutely! You don’t necessarily have to be an artist or view yourself as a creative individual to benefit from coaching. Coaching leverages creative strategies to empower clients to take calculated risks and make steps towards their goals. If you have an idea or vision, coaching can provide the structure and motivation you need to explore and realize it.

I'm interested in coaching, but I'm not sure if it's right for me. What should I do?

It’s completely normal to have questions or concerns about getting started with coaching. Feel free to get in touch via the connect page to discuss any queries or apprehensions you may have. Remember, the coaching process is tailor-made to suit individual needs, preferences, and goals.

What if coaching doesn't work for me? What if I fail?

The concept of failure in coaching is different from the traditional sense of the word. Failure in a coaching context occurs only when we remain stuck or inactive. On the contrary, taking any step, no matter how small, towards your goal is a sign of success. Success in coaching is defined as “doing what you said you would do with clarity, focus, ease, and grace.” So as long as you’re taking action, you’re succeeding.

What is the structure of a typical coaching session?

Every coaching session is unique and adapted to the client’s needs. However, typically, a session might start with a check-in, followed by setting the focus for the session, the main discussion, action planning, and finally a session wrap-up.

Why is it beneficial to hire a coach that is certified with the International Coach Federation (ICF)?

Hiring a coach certified by the International Coach Federation (ICF) ensures that you have chosen a professional who adheres to the highest standards. ICF-certified coaches have undergone rigorous training and evaluation, demonstrating their competency in various coaching skills. They are bound by a strict code of ethics, which calls for utmost confidentiality, integrity, and respect for the client. Further, they engage in continuous professional development to stay updated in the field of coaching. Therefore, with an ICF-certified coach, you can expect an experience that is professional, effective, and of the highest quality.

What can a client do to get the best results from coaching?

To get the most out of coaching, it’s crucial that clients are actively engaged and committed to the process. This can involve setting clear goals, being open and honest with your coach, and taking responsibility for implementing the strategies and actions that you discuss. It’s also important to approach coaching with a positive attitude and be open to the possibility of change. By doing so, you’ll be in a better position to gain insights, learn new skills, and ultimately achieve your objectives. Additionally, regular communication and feedback with your coach can lead to more effective coaching sessions and better outcomes.
