How do I know I’m ready for coaching?
If you’ve had the nagging feeling for some time that something needs to change, or you know you need a little support to take the next step, then it’s a great time to consider coaching.
However, coaching sessions require emotional availability and a deep commitment to change. I am glad to hold the space, but ultimately you are only responsible to yourself.
If you have this strong desire for change, and are in a place with the capacity to complete activities between sessions, you are ready to begin your coaching journey.
What does a coach do?
A coach provides a valuable external perspective so you can get clear on what is holding you back and where you want your path to take you. Along with my clients, we co-create a plan to help you overcome your blocks and move forward to create the life you want. I provide gentle accountability to keep you on track and make sure you have the tools and resources you need to create lasting change.
As a radical coach, I, unlike many other coaches, also recognise the role of oppression, marginalisation and toxic productivity in your blocks and inner narrative, and provide an open-minded safe space for you to explore whatever your hopes and dreams may be.
What’s the difference between coaching and counselling?
Coaching is focused on the present and the path ahead. Coaching helps you to understand what is blocking you currently in achieving the life you want and uses goals to take steps towards your vision.
In comparision, counselling looks to identify and heal from problems in the past that are still effecting you today.
There is often overlap between the two services and clients can use both simultaneously to good effect.
Do I need a particular issue in mind I want to change?
For you to get the most out of the coaching experience it’s an easier process for you if you know what your goals are. We can’t fix everything so we need to be clear about what we’re working toward. It’s worth giving this some real thought before you book any coaching services.
However, if you’re plagued by the feeling that things need to change but aren’t sure exactly what those changes may look like, we can explore your feelings to access which life changes may create the feelings you want to embody.
What if I can’t afford it?
I have been in this situation so many times, I can relate! I am more interested in genuine human connection than I am making money. If you think I can help you but can’t pay the fees in one go, get in touch via the box below and we can explore options like instalments, scholarships and trades.
