A Better Understanding of Life Coaching
Would a better understanding of life coaching be helpful?
Many people aren’t sure how life coaching works, so I’ll share with you some of my own personal thoughts about life coaching.
I’ll answer the most common questions I tend to hear as best I can here in this blog, and if there’s anything else you want to ask me, or if anything’s not clear, you’re welcome to ask more or ask again, by contacting me here.
Firstly, career wise I’ve worked with a wide range of people, including students, musicians, artists, unemployed, house-wives, and city/corporate professionals.
The coaching approach can be used for any person in any field, it’s the way the coach challenges and addresses the client that is important and works as part of the process to create the change(s) desired.
I am very happy to meet with my clients face-to-face, I have a lot of flexibility since I work both near to Golders Green and in St. John’s Wood, in London. Clients tend to do phone sessions if they are very far away or if they work very long hours or travel a lot and find it difficult to get to me.
Most of my clients get a lot of change and often all that they have come to see me for, within an average of 6 – 8 coaching sessions. Personally, I believe this is a realistic time scale for change.
Before we meet, I start the process with a pre-coaching questionnaire, which sets the route or path for the coaching, based entirely on what the client wants; this is very important, the agenda for the coaching is totally and absolutely yours, I have no agenda except to help you achieve whatever you have determined matters to you.
My role is to be the catalyst for that change, so the plan in the coaching is to keep you focused and on track with whatever you’ve decided you want to work on.
Coaching is different to counselling or psychotherapy; the way I see it is that it’s a tool to help people as and when they need, to shift or change or achieve something that’s just out of their grasp. Coaching is not a “hand-holding” exercise, it’s a temporary support mechanism that you can use as much or as little as you want.
In my opinion, coaching is a short-term process, which you can use whenever it feels right for you.
Hope this helps give you a better picture of coaching.
Look forward to hearing from you.
