Frequently Asked Questions
What the hell is coaching?
Coaching is a partnership between coach (me) and client (you) that will help you to make any necessary changes that help propel you towards reaching your highest potential. Coaching supports you at every level in becoming who you want to be, through building awareness, empowering choice and leading to change.
Coaching has traditionally been associated with sports. Every top athlete has a coach. In the last few years, coaching has become available for almost every aspect of life and business as well as sport, due to its ability to unlock a person’s potential to maximise their performance.
Now, it is quite normal for someone to hire a coach to help them achieve their goals in their life and/or work.
As a coach I help you to achieve your personal best and to produce the results you want in your personal and professional life. I will make sure to keep you accountable. If you say you’re going to do something, I will circle back to check that you got it done. Saying yes to something is the easy part, but following through is where people struggle! As your coach, it is my job to stand right by you as we shift gears and move from bad to good, good to great or great to legendary, while having some fun along the way! I use somatic coaching techniques and bio-hacks to help my clients get the best results.
Is coaching for me?
If you’re reading this far, then the chances are you care about how you live your life. If you’re a go-getter and you would rather feel the buzz of creating endless opportunities for yourself instead of waiting for them to knock at your door, then “high five!” you’re in the right place.
If you want an easy ride however, then you’re in the wrong place.
Coaching is challenging. It’s about expanding the boundaries of your comfort zone so that you’re prepared to reach new heights with your talent. For those of you who are willing to commit to reaching your highest potential, coaching is your fast track ticket.
How does it differ from therapy / counselling / consulting?
Coaching differs from therapy and counselling in the sense that it does not focus on relieving psychological or physical symptoms. Whereas therapy deals with a client’s mental health, coaching deals with a client’s mental growth. In coaching we move towards your desired goals, whereas in therapy or counselling the intention is usually to move away from pain or discomfort.
In consultancy, expertise is usually offered to solve the problems of a business or to develop a business as a whole, generally dealing with the overall organisation as a whole and not directly focusing on the individuals within it.
If we discover that your needs are more of a match for therapy or counselling sessions then it would not be appropriate for me to take you on as a client, however I will be more than happy to refer you to trusted professionals in those fields.
Are you available for general life coaching aside from your music industry package?
Yes. I have limited slots to coach clients from all backgrounds who are committed to making big changes in various aspects of their lives. If you wish to work with me or find out more about my 3, 6 and 12 month packages then please contact me directly to arrange a free consultation call and check availability. As a Human Potential Coach, I am trained to help my clients reach optimal performance through life coaching, health coaching, performance coaching and personal development coaching.
Do you follow any code of ethics for your coaching practice?
Ethics and ethical conduct permeate all areas of my life as a Human Potential Coach. I aim to show up at all times as my best self, and I adhere to the Code Of Ethics set out by the International Coaching Federation which motivates me to conduct myself with honesty, integrity and professionalism at all times in my coaching sessions and in life. Please feel free to have a closer look at the ICF Code of Ethics HERE
How do we decide if we want to start working together?
If you take the first step of jumping on a free consultation call with me, we can explore the possibility of coaching together.
This call will give you the opportunity to:
– Share your challenges or goals with me in detail and to tell me more about you.
– Get to know me personally and ask me any questions you may have about myself or the coaching process.
– Get a feeling of what it is like to be coached by me.
It will also provide us both with an opportunity to decide whether or not we are a good fit to work together. This is so important for both of us. Not everyone on the planet connects in the same way, and that’s ok! To get the best results we must be excited about working with each other. I don’t take on everyone as clients. If I don’t think that we’re a good fit for whatever reason, I am able to refer you to other certified coaches who may be better suited to serve your needs or your personality.
Where will our sessions take place?
Sessions all take place via video online on the Zoom platform, which is just as effective as coaching face to face. This enables me to serve clients located around the world, and enables you to enjoy being coached in the comfort of your own space.
Do you offer plans to receive payment in instalments?
At present I do not offer any options to pay in instalments, let me explain why. In order for us to be able to achieve the best results, it will require a lot of focus. Money tends to distract us from fully focusing on the topic of coaching.
By investing up front you are demonstrating your commitment, which is a fundamental part of a powerful coaching relationship between you and I, and the primary driving force that brings personal development and incredible results.
Should I do this?
Great things happen when people invest in themselves.
If you’re ready to show up and be fully committed to making a change, then I am ready and fully committed to be the coach that takes you to the next level.
