Coaching. What you need to know before you get started.
If you are considering coaching, but you’re not sure what to expect, this information will give you some insight on the coaching process, so you can make the most of our work together.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is about getting from where you are now to where you want to be. It's a process that help you learn to trust the wise voice inside that is telling you that you can have, do and be so much more. By being honest with yourself about what's not working for you, together we can figure out what you really want and need. Coaching is also about taking action, because ' If nothing changes, nothing changes'. As your coach, I act as a facilitator. We begin with a life audit, so you can clearly see where you are now. I will encourage you to identify what changes you'd like, and need, to make. I help you to create positive, future-focused and inspiring goals, and then break them down into manageable steps. As your coach, I will hold you accountable and empower you to move from where you are to where you want to be.
1. It is a conversational process
Coaching is one of the leading tools employed by successful, high-functioning people to lead extraordinary lives. It is a process that unfolds, via our relationship, conversations and the use of strategic sophisticated coaching tools, that enables you to work on your mind, body and emotions so you can live life to the full.
2. It is a Space and Time dedicated to YOU
So few people slow down and spend time looking closely at their lives, to examine whether things are really working, but ONLY by doing this, is it possible to improve things! After all, we can't change what we are not aware of! The coaching relationship is an equal relationship. It is a dynamic and flexible space, focused on you and your goals. I will allow you room to be you, yet offer strong boundaries, so you can focus, feel secure and accountable.
3. It’s about growth and development
The main goal of a coaching relationship is to allow genuine, positive change & growth within you. As a result of this transformation, we expect you to reach your goals and grow into your desired life.
My Responsibility as a Coach includes:
- To create a judgment-free space, where you can bring anything of yourself to the table in confidence.
- To ask lots of questions that can result in new ways of thinking to open alternative approaches and fresh perspectives.
- To help you focus better, so you can get results more quickly.
- To ask you to do more than you have probably done on your own.
- To support you in making the changes that you choose to take in your life.
- To provide a relationship where you can discover more about yourself, your world and your choices.
- To keep the sessions focused on the goals that you have set for yourself.
What is Your Responsibility as Client?
- Take full ownership of your process. You are responsible for your own learning, development and actions.
- To commit to the process, and implement the changes that coaching brings.
- Remain open, honest and accountable to yourself and to me as your coach.
- Be aware that adult learning is a process, it involves change, and will potentially lead you in directions you didn’t initially anticipate. Change can be difficult and sometimes a bit more uncomfortable than you’re used to. After all, if you had been able to make changes alone, you would have already done it!
- Provide honest, clear constructive feedback at the completion of your coaching programme.
How is Coaching Different from Therapy?
Coaching is NOT therapy, although its effects can be therapeutic in itself. Coaching is about making the CHOICE to step up and take action - because you want your health and life to be BETTER. Clients who choose coaching do so because they recognise that LIFE IS SHORT and it is important to truly LIVE IT to the full!
Coaching is for women who don't want to 'squander the gold' of their days living a life that doesn't suit them or serve them.
Coaching will ask you to take 100% responsibility for your life. In coaching sessions, I will not diagnosing you, treating you or 'therapising' you. I will not be 'fixing' you - you are not broken.
Therapy tends to focus on the past and has the perspective of moving a person from ill-health to health.
Coaching predominately focused on the present and the future and tends to be more action-oriented. It is holistic in that it brings together emotions, physical, mental and relationship spheres. Where therapy and medical consults aims to help someone from illness to health, coaching can be an ongoing journey, in pursuit of the evolving fullness of health and wellbeing.
The coaching relationship is also more of a partnership than a therapy or patient-doctor relationship. The “answers” that you are looking for, are inside you and often come about through reflection, questioning, and your own inner knowledge. It is framed around your goals, interests and objectives, not that of the coach.
