Frequently asked questions

What exactly is a life coach?


A life coach is your advocate, and your partner to building a better more satisfying life. A life coach can help you with many things from prioritizing and organizing your life, to learning how to express your emotions and build self-esteem. They provide resources, suggestions, encouragement, accountability, and the best part is they are objective, and their sole interest is on improving your quality of life, personally or professionally, whatever your needs may be. You will get better insight into who you are, what you want, and identify specific steps to get where you want to be. You will build skills and gain tools and resources to help you live the life you want. Professional Life Coaching is a confidential and collaborative relationship between a Life Coach (me) and a client (you). I will use listening skills and powerful questioning techniques that I have studied and mastered at the International Coaching Federation’s (ICF) accredited school.

How do I know if I need a coach?


The most recent research shows that almost 80% of Americans suffer from mild to moderate depression, typically related to life events like break-ups, death of a loved one, financial hardship etc. If you are experiencing any of these you may not need a therapist, but you could benefit from working with a coach. In the end only you will know if you really need a life coach or not. The following list of questions may help you decide: 1. Do you often feel overwhelmed from the daily tasks at hand? 2. Do you feel like you’re living life unconsciously? 3. Do you suffer from low self-esteem? 4. Do you feel like everyone seems to have a master plan but you? 5. Is there a lack of support in your life? 6. Do you feel disconnected from the people in your life? 7. Are you going through a difficult time in life and need some objective support? 8. Do you have deadlines you just can’t deal with and don’t know how to cope? 9. Do you feel stuck? Answering yes to any of the above questions suggests you could benefit from working with a coach. The benefits to coaching are limitless! You can expect to: Find your life's true purpose Navigate a personal or professional transition Discover your inner confidence Uncover your motivation for success Create life balance Practice mindfulness Become an authentic leader Positively empower others




Can we speak before I designate you as my life coach?


Definitely! It is important to make sure you find the right coach for you! That is why every client receives a "complementary" consultation before full sessions begin. The only risk to you is a potential reward. :)

Since this is a partnership, you must be willing to be honest with yourself, address tough questions, be prepared to change behaviors, attitudes and ways of thinking, and most of all, be ready to make a time commitment for your sessions and actions in between.




Do you offer Remote Coaching & Remote Speeches?


Absolutely! It's 2018, lets connect & devise a plan that is suitable for you. You have the choice of engaging in our coaching sessions in person, over the phone, or even via video chat.




How long will it take to achieve my goals?


This all depends on your goal, your commitment, and the amount of action you take between coaching sessions. Three months is the recommended minimum to begin to see results, but I am willing to work with anyone who is motivated to make a change.
