Frequently asked questions...
What is life coaching?Life coaching is a ongoing one-on-one conversation, completely focused on you—your goals, progress, energy, and overall consciousness. A coaching relationship works from the inside out, identifying your core energy. Then we set goals, break them down into manageable tasks, and hold you accountable to making it happen your way. Efficient and excited growth! You will feel it.
How is life coaching different from therapy or friendship?Life coaching is about forward thinking and forward motion. Therapy classically focuses in the past, taking people from dysfunctional to functional. Coaching takes fully functional people to an optimal place, clearing away external and internal blocks to make way for inspired, directed action. Friends are great for support and validation absolutely, but in friendship, it goes both ways, thus diluting impact. In coaching, our conversations are entirely focused on you and your progress. By employing coaching tools, skills, and intuitive listening, we get to the root of your energy and intent in the most efficient way possible. And a key difference in coaching versus pretty much anything else, is accountability. Accountability ensures your progress week-to-week, no matter what your goals may be.
What separates you from other life coaches?I’m me. Really. Coaching is a very personal relationship, and if you like my vibe, what I’m about as a person, and how I operate as a coach, then our coaching relationship will thrive. I’m stoked. Specifically, I have expertise as a professional/intensely committed athlete, and even more specifically, expertise as an extreme-sport professional. I have a great deal of experience with the types of challenges these lifestyles and close-knit communities present, and as such can best help you find balance and clarity among them and through them.
Why do you offer a money-back guarantee for the first month?Because I’m that certain that you will feel the benefits of coaching right from the start. I also want you to commit to this process without fear. Bring on the awesome!
Why does ICF certification matter?Because there are tons of coaching certification courses out there that claim they produce outstanding coaches, when the truth of the matter is that only ICF accredited programs are held to the ethical and educational standards that result in such coaches. And with that, coaches that can provide you the best possible service. iPec Coaching, the program I attended, is an ICF accredited program.
How does coaching work?Check out the Coaching tab on the website for specifics of each program, but overall it involves weekly 30-minute to 1-hour phone calls, unlimited email correspondence, and ongoing accountability.
Why should I do a Sample Session?A Sample Session is an affordable and unexpectedly powerful way to learn more, and experience what coaching with me is like first-hand with no commitments beyond that hour.
How do I know I need a coach?Feel overwhelmed? Unbalanced? Feel like it’s taking forever to reach your goals? Not sure what goals to even set? Feel held back by your job, your relationship, yourself? Know you can do, feel, be more? As your coach, we’ll tackle all of it—you from the inside-out, and outside-in. With that, you will start growing, making progress, and enjoying the self-sustaining energy that comes with doing, feeling, and being the most authentic and engaged version of yourself.
I want you as my coach! What’s the next step?Awesome! Now comes the good stuff. To confirm our working together, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will forward you the appropriate paperwork to get our relationship formally set and started. It’s go time! Yes!
