Frequently Asked Questions ...

Q) What is Life Coaching?
A) A Life Coach is similar to a Personal Trainer. The goal here is to reach your potential in all areas of your life.

Q) Why would I want a Life Coach?
A) You would want a Life Coach:

  • If you want to make changes faster and easier;
  • If you want to maintain progress towards your goals;
  • If you want to establish and maintain balance in a busy life;
  • If you want help and information on decisions

Q) What is the difference between Life Coaching and Psychotherapy?
A) Life coaching is solution oriented and focuses on the 'now' and your future. Life Coaches work with healthy people who want to make changes in areas of their life whether it be personal, career, business, life purpose and so on. Psychotherapy is more involved with your past issues and how that has impacted you.

Q) Will you tell me what to do?
A) No! But I will ask the right questions to help you get to the right answers. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how much you know when asked the right questions.

Q) Isn't this just chatting?
No, this not friendly chit-chat!  It will be friendly, but it will also be productive.  If you're not feeling that you've made measurable progress over the hour-long appointment, then I'm not doing my job right.   Each appointment will be an education, and will have a goal (either big or small) met or made progress on.   This is really important as you are paying for the service and need to know that you are getting value for your money and time.

Q) How many sessions would you recommend?

A)  I would recommend 10 sessions, but this is flexible, and depends on what you require coaching on.   You may have coaching for a period of time, and then occasionally have a session when you come across new challenges.

Tips and Advice

Is your mind cluttered with the small stuff?

On a whiteboard, write down a check list with the daily chores, and mark them off as they are completed.  This will free your mind for the things you really need to think about.


I was in a difficult place in my life when I learned about Life Coaching; I was drowning in work, financial woes and fighting with my daughter constantly.  I could see no end in sight.  Through some leading questions and gentle suggestions I was forced to think through the present and focus on the future - one where my life was fun again.  To use a cliche, it didn't happen overnight, but it did happen.  I've since purchased a house, am spending more time with my husband and actually get along with my teenage daughter (mostly).  I'm very grateful to have found the help just when I needed it.
