Frequently Asked Questions- Coaching

Coaching FAQs

A coach is a trained professional who specializes in helping you reach your personal and professional goals.  Typically, this is accomplished through a series of 1-on-1 or group sessions designed to help you achieve your greatest potential in life.  A professional coach can offer a variety of tools and techniques while providing an objective perspective.  Coaches specialize in different areas.

In the coaching I do with my clients, I focus on three pillars fundamental to any major evolution in life: clarity, confidence, and courage.  My coaching approach is informed by my professional and business experiences in government, human resource management, and as a rural veterinarian, and my personal experiences of taking bold leaps in pursuit of my dreams.

What types of people turn to coaching

People from all walks of life can benefit from coaching, but it tends to resonate best with individuals who aspire to improve their lives or reach a higher level of personal success, those feeling some sort of tension in their careers or lives.  If you’re stuck in a rut, frustrated with some aspect of your career, wrestling with a major transition, or simply aspire for more out of your career, coaching might be right for you.

Most of my clients who get the most out of coaching tell me they’re looking for 5 things:

  1. A dedicated time & space to focus on some important career or personal development issues
  2. Someone who can help with potential ways to move forward
  3. Someone who can hold them accountable to making progress
  4. Someone who can be fully objective and nonjudgmental when discussing topics
  5. A kind and trustworthy person who can help them understand themselves better.

Coaches can help hold you accountable, to keep you on track toward achieving your goals. You can read more about the benefits of coaching on ICF’s website.

I have worked with a coach multiple times in my life. The first, when I was decided whether to give up on a career in veterinary medicine after over eighteen years of personal investment. Later when I decided to level up in my government leadership development roles.  Also, when I was deciding whether to leave a dream role after studying HR management and designing my own workforce development role. There were also many occasions when in hindsight a coach  could have helped me through key moments of reinvention. For example, when I made a leap of faith and decided to build a new business around women’s retreats (riding and learning about themselves through horses), to remote parts of the world including beautiful Montana.  When I left my stable, government job behind to build my training and facilitation business, and study and work at the same time.  When I travelled alone across 6 States of the USA in a rental car and by bus, to learn about myself in a totally new environment.

What happens over the course of coaching sessions?

Many of my clients are busy business professionals, so I do most sessions via Zoom or phone so my clients can speak to me in the comfort and privacy of their own office or home, which is also a time-efficient approach.  Typically, we’ll start by getting a snapshot of your current situation, current issues, and where you want to go. We’ll clarify your ambitions and goals for the coaching program.  We’ll also work to identify key barriers to progress, common frustrations, areas where you tend to get stuck.  At the end of each session, we will talk through next steps and actions to keep you moving forward between sessions.  Most sessions are 60 mins or less.  All information is kept 100% confidential, and I will never divulge to anyone I’m working with you unless you give me explicit permission.  At the conclusion of our work together, we’ll recap our progress & identify how you can best leverage what you’ve learned as you move onward.

How long do people work with coaches?

While exceptions do exist, multiple sessions are usually required to create meaningful progress on longstanding barriers you’ve struggled to overcome. My clients who get the most from coaching commit to certain goals over a 90 day period, as significant change doesn’t happen overnight. My most popular service is my 8-session, 120 day package, although some choose to move more or less quickly. I always encourage clients to let their coaches know when they feel their time is complete. You should get tremendous value from every single session we have together, and the moment that’s not the case, it could be time to revisit the purpose of your coaching.

Is coaching expensive? I'm paying for myself

As a guide, you should expect to pay $200 or more per session (depending on number of sessions) for coaches who have post-graduate qualifications, ICF membership and accreditation, professional insurance, many hours of experience and have trained in evaluation tools.

I offer payment plans and instalments to self funded clients.

However….the burning question is, what is the cost of maintaining the status quo! What is the professional and personal cost of continuing as you are and what is the potential payoff for progressing in your life, work and leadership? How quickly might you recoup the financial investment? 

What's the best way to get started?

When you do identify a potential coach, request an introductory “discovery” session (typically free) where you briefly discuss your current situation and where you want to go. Then, have a candid conversation about whether you feel the coach’s expertise and services align well with what you need.  It typically takes 20-30 mins, and you’ll get a decent read on the coach’s style and approach.  You can also ask if the coach has testimonials he/she can share with you.  Reading testimonials can help you get a sense of whether a coach’s offerings resonate well with your needs.

If you feel my approach, fees and background may align with what you are seeking, feel free to request a discovery session. Informal chats a specialty! You can also find out more about me by stalking me on LinkedIn
