What is Coaching?

What is Coaching?

Coaching empowers individuals, couples, and teams to fulfill their personal and professional calling. The goal of coaching is for you to discover new things about yourself and take action to reshape your life around that learning.

A coaching engagement is a collaborative process, and you as the client will need to fully participate in order to create the changes you want. Your coach will walk alongside you, but only you can take the action needed to create change.

Coaching is a confidential space for you to examine your thoughts and emotions. In this space, you will create a vision for the future, and action steps that will get you there.

What Coaching Isn’t

It’s not therapy.
Therapy focuses on the past whereas coaching is present, future, and action-oriented.

It’s not mentoring.
Mentors are experts in a particular field who seek to pass on their expertise to a person. In coaching, we believe that you are the expert of your life and we support you in finding the answers within you. 

It’s not training.
In training, the trainer sets the agenda. In coaching, you set the agenda for what would be the most beneficial conversation to have.

It’s not authoritarian.
A coach will push you beyond what you might think you can do, but will always be supportive. You are in control. The responsibility to decide and act is yours.

Why Does Coaching Work?

Coaching works because it brings out your best. We believe the answers are within you and we are supporting you to find them.

This is what your coach will do during coaching sessions

Listen well. Your perspective is important and needs to be heard.

Ask questions and reflect on your words and their meaning back to you. Questions and reflections are used to stimulate your thinking and creativity.

Encourage. Everyone needs encouragement, and usually, we don’t get enough. Your coach will spur you on to pursue your vision, your progress, and your efforts.

Facilitate while letting you lead. Coaches facilitate your learning and problem-solving. Yet, they are never leading – you are, with your agenda and your approach.

Session Structure

Have a goal

Every session needs to have a goal. This can be exploring a specific goal and outcome or exploring a question you would like to have an answer to at the end of our time. 

Explore the goal

We will look into understanding more about: What is important about that topic? What might be getting in the way? What would you like the future to look like?


We will spend some time understanding what are you taking away from everything you have processed during our time together.  


At the end, I will invite you to identify at least one action that you can take as a result of your takeaways.
