Coaching

Covid-19 update – All coaching is done by phone or video chat at this time.

If you would love to be kinder and more compassionate with yourself, less judgmental, you’ve come to the right place.

How do I Know if I’m Ready for Coaching?

You are ready for coaching if:

  • You are highly motivated to see change in some area of your life and willing to do something about it
  • You are willing to engage in honest, candid conversation about it
  • You are willing to take action
  • You are willing to experiment with new behaviours and ways of thinking
  • You are willing to invest time working with a coach
  • You have the finances to pay for coaching

Coaching

Describing coaching feels a bit like trying to describe the taste of water. I’d rather give you a sample and see if you like it. If you’re ready for that taste (with no cost to you or obligation to continue), then you can let me know, and we’ll set up a time.

The second-best way for you to get a picture of what coaching is like is by reading what some of my clients have said about coaching with me.

If you’d still like something a bit more concrete, I’ll tell you that often people coach with me somewhere between 6-12 months (although we could start with a shorter commitment if you prefer). The details of precisely what coaching would look like for you are customizable. Generally, I start with a 2-hour discovery call and, after that, connect by phone or video chat every two weeks for 45-60 minutes. In between coaching sessions, we set up whatever kind of accountability you feel you need, and it varies with each session. If needed, we connect briefly between sessions by phone, message or email. At some point in your coaching, preferably near the start, you will engage in a 6 week mental fitness training course.
