A coach is a bit like a personal trainer – someone to push you and keep you accountable. But a coach isn’t setting the target; you are. A typical coaching client has a problem they need help with. Whether it’s a relationship conflict, a work issue, a career decision, or a personal matter, a coach can help the client navigate the problem. A good coach will help you explore what might be holding you back from reaching your goal, and will challenge you along the way if you are having trouble stepping out of your comfort zone.
What coaching is: There are many kinds of coaching, but they all focus on you and the goals you want to reach. If you are curious, I recommend booking a complimentary sample session!
What coaching can do: Coaching can help you reach a goal, resolve a problem, or identify the goal you want to reach. Along the way you might find new perspectives and create life altering shifts.
What coaching isn’t: Coaching is not: therapy or counseling, mentoring or advice, or a quick and easy fix.
I offer complimentary sample sessions so that you can get a feel for what coaching can do for you.
