Why letting others decide for you?
You are the EXPERT of your LIFE. You decide what is best for you.
You are the EXPERT of your OWN LIFE. Hence, if you want to look within to find your own answers and make your own decisions on how to live your life, than coaching is the right answer for you.
Coaching is about a partnership that will enable you to find your own direction, your own answers, your own solutions and your own choices. You are in the driver seat.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for an expert, other than you, to tell you how to live your own life, than perhaps coaching is not right path for you.
The role of a Coach
A Coach is not an Expert, nor a Mentor, a Guru or a one-on-one Trainer. Nevertheless, there is a lot of learning that is going on and YOU are your own teacher. The coach is accompany and support you, through human presence, non-judgement, questions meant to bring you clarity or questions meant to help you design your own questions.
Coaching is not about giving you advice, nor teaching you what to do. The ultimate purpose is to bring you autonomy and unleash that potential that lies within you. By looking within, you will eventually find out in your own rhythm what else is possible for you.
Many people regard a coach as an expert in a certain field. Nevertheless, whenever someone gives you advice and solutions, this is no longer coaching, but consulting. A Coach is an expert only in the coaching process, whilst you, the Client, are the sole expert of your reality. As a Coach, I will be holding a mirror for you, so you can see yourself where you are and via questioning, you can choose what path to take next.
Choose to look within
so you can move forward
If you want to look within for your answers, I can support you through either a one-off coaching session or for a coaching track of includes several sessions, upon your request. The first coaching session (30 minutes) and the intake call (15 minutes) are free. Then it’s up to you to decide if you need further support.
How do we proceed?
Step 1: Discovery Meeting (Video Call)
In the Discovery meeting, you state your general direction and overall goals for your coaching journey. I will already ask you some coaching questions to start clarify your goals. Take into account that your goals may need a further exploring in a full coaching session(s) or may shift in time. In this meeting, you can also addreess your questions about coaching. At the end of this meeting we both decide if we are a match and if we can work together.
Step 2: The Coaching Agreement
After the Discovery meeting, we both sign a coaching agreement in which our roles will be clearly stated, together with the confidentiality of the sessions. The difference between coaching and psychotherapy will be highligtened. Then we start the coaching journey.
Step 3: The Coaching Journey
We meet online on a video-conference call or in the park or forest. You decide the length of the session (30 minutes, 1 hour, 1hour and a half) and the frequency of the sessions. Some people prefer a weekly session of one hour, others prefer a session every two or three weeks or even once a month. You decide. You are in the driver seat.
Half-way through the coaching journey, we can agree to have a 30 minute Check-in session to check where and how we are standing in the coaching journey.
