Business & Life coaching: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why does coaching work?

Coaching works because it gives you this quality time and provides the tools and insights required to find solutions.
the fish does not see the water
We typically cannot see out of the paradigms in which we operate. Coaching allows you to uncover these, let go of them where they are not helpful, and shift to a higher level of being that is more inspiring and effective.
How do I know I will benefit from Coaching?
Everyone can benefit from coaching. You are ready for coaching if you are willing to invest time, commitment and effort to the sessions and complete any required action to move you towards your goals.

What is the difference between Coaching and Therapy?
you don't need to be broken
A key difference between coaching and therapy is that therapy is designed to heal areas that are damaged or broken whereas you do not need to require fixing in any way to benefit from coaching.
you let go of baggage
Therapy often involves looking into the past to provide healing. Coaching is primarily concerned with you taking action and moving towards the best life you can live. Coaching focuses on the present and future but you are not free to do that unless you let go of your baggage from the past. Coaching does deal with the past in that it provides new perspectives that allow you to leave the past in the past which in turn frees you up to create a new way of being in the present and future.
you stop going round in circles
In other words, we stop going round in circles. Transformation occurs when are vision and actions are aligned and free from limiting constraints.

How many sessions are normally required?
Coaching is a process to ensure you are empowered to start taking action towards a specific goal. As the client you decide what is right for you.
