Here’s a collection of answers to common questions that I get asked about coaching. If your question isn’t answered here or you’d like some clarification/more information on any of the answers below feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
A: This is actually a super common question, so know that you’re not alone in being unsure about what a life coach is.
A life coach assists you to achieve what you want and supports you in making the changes you want to make in your life. A coach support you in working out what you want and setting goals based on these insights. They also support you (and keep you accountable) in actively working towards what they want to achieve. A coach holds space for you to uncover what it is you really want, to overcome what’s holding you back and taking empowered action towards your goals.
If you’re interested you can read more about what a life coach is (and isn’t) here.
A: To get things started email me to let me know your interested in working together and we can organise a time for us to have a 30 minute (no pressure) chat over Skype to help us uncover what you really want to work towards, to see if we’d make an awesome match for a 1:1 coaching partnership and to see if I’m the best person to support you in what you want to achieve. After our Skype chat if you decide that you want to work together you will need to sign my coaching agreement and pay your first invoice in order to secure and schedule in your 6 sessions with me. Then we can begin!
Sound good to you? You can email me here to get the process started 🙂
A: All of our sessions are held over Skype (with your choice of only audio or both audio and video), which means we can work together wherever you are in the world — pretty awesome hey!
As every client I work with is unique from another — each coaching series is different depending on the client, what they are working towards and what they are working on overcoming.
The best way to find out what it’s like to work with me is to hear directly from my previous clients, you can find a collection of testimonials from them over here. I’ve been told that I’m unconditionally supportive, non-judgemental, compassionate and understanding.
A: Undertaking a coaching series with me and working 1:1 together is a big deal — so it’s important to me that we’re an awesome match for a 1:1 coaching relationship. If you find that you resonate with my approach, blog posts and/or emails, we will likely make an awesome match. I find that when a potential client reaches out because they feel called to work with me, then we usually are a good match.
The best way to find out if we’d make an awesome match for a 1:1 coaching relationship is to email me and request a 30 minute chat on Skype, where we can talk more about what you want to achieve in a coaching series and ultimately see if we’re an awesome match for working together 🙂
A: Yep, I sure do! 🙂 I’m am award-nominated certified life coach with the Beautiful You Coaching Academy, which means that I’m internationally certified life coach through the International Coach Federation (ICF). I have a Bachelor of Psychological Science from La Trobe University. And I’ve also been committed to my own self-development for 12+ years now (you can read more about that here if you like).
A: Honestly, I can’t tell you if this is the right choice for you. But what I can tell you is that if you feel called to work with me — I can help you work out if this is the right decision for you which is why I offer a free 3o minute Skype chat for people who are considering working with me. This is an awesome opportunity for us to get to know each other and to see if a 1:1 coaching relationship with me is a good fit for you.
It’s important to me that both of us think we’d make an awesome match for working 1:1 together before we undertake a coaching series together and I will be completely honest with you if I don’t think this is the right next step for you.
A: You will be invoiced for your coaching series once a month for the duration of your series. However, if you’d like to pay for your series upfront please let me know and I will give you a 5% discount on the full series payment.
A: This 30 minute free session is for us to help work out if working together is the right decision for you. I only work with people when I feel like we are an awesome match for working together and I know that I can help them with what they need, so I will be completely honest with you if I think we’re going to make an awesome match or not.
If you’re interested in this free session you will need to complete my epic pre-coaching questionnaire, which help us uncover what you want to work towards, then I will give you access to my calendar to schedule in a time for us to have a chat via Skype.
The actual 30 minute session will provide us with the opportunity to get to know each other, to discuss what you want to work towards and to see if we’d make an awesome match for a coaching relationship. You can request your free 30 minute chat by emailing me.
A: Yep it can! And I love working with Beautiful You trainees and coaches in order for you to get certified. The Infinite Coaching Series (6 sessions over 3 months) is the package that meets the requirements for certification. If you’d like to working together 1:1 to get certified you can get in touch here.
A: Yep, I currently guide people through experimenting with gratitude through The 28 Day Gratitude Project. And I’ve also got some exciting things in the works for 2017, which you can find out more about here.
A: Both of these 1:1 packages are the same, the main difference being the duration of the 1:1 support. The Infinite Coaching Series involves us working together on a short-term basis for 3 months, where The Beyond Coaching Series involves us working together on a longer-term basis for 6 months, which is why the package includes some extra additions 😉
A: I currently offer two 1:1 coaching programs: The Infinite Coaching Series which is a 3 month package and The Beyond Coaching Series which is a 6 month package. Depending on what you want to work on and get out of our time together will determine which package will best suit you. I can help you work out which package would best suit you through my pre-coaching questionnaire and free 30 minute chat.
A: The best way for us to work out if your ready for a 1:1 coaching relationship is to sit down for a 30 minute Skype chat with me and I will honestly let you know what I think or if I think you might benefit from different kind of support at this time.
Moment-of-honesty: I truly believe that we may never actually feel ‘ready’ to step up in our own lives. I know for me when I really wanted to stop holding myself back and playing small I didn’t feel ready at all — but deep down I knew that I had to feel the fear and do it anyway.
So if you’ve felt the call to work with me 1:1 know that it’s okay if you don’t feel ready — and I encourage you to get in touch anyway.
A: I personally trained with — and wholeheartedly recommend — the Beautiful You Coaching Academy. Enrolling in this course was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made (yep, in my entire life!). I’m incredibly passionate about this course and I’m so grateful for what it’s allowed me to do. And because of that, if you’re wanting to become a Beautiful You coach yourself I would absolutely love to team up with you and support you in your coaching journey with my incredible bonus offer (which you get at no extra cost to you!).
