10 ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN CHOOSING THE RIGHT LIFE COACH FOR YOU

Selecting the perfect life coach to support, challenge and cheer lead you to reach your goals is so important.
You have to trust your life coach and like their coaching style and feel at ease in sharing this amazing journey to your potential.

SO BE SURE TO CHECK THE FOLLOWING POINTS:

1 What is it that I want? Getting clarity can be the first goal you can work on with a coach. At an appointment, you will be given the opportunity to assess how you are getting on in life. When you are clear on what you wish to achieve and what would be important to you, this will encourage you to achieve your goals.

2 Is personal development coaching for me?
There are different styles of coaching for everybody. Ask yourself what are your needs? what would suit you and your style? I coach with humour, insight and intuitively get to the core issue quickly and effectively. I challenge and I go gently too but my agenda is to ensure that you get what you want on your terms.

3 How much should I pay? All coaching is an investment in you. You also have to be prepared to invest in emotional equity and give it time and patience too. With me, you are paying for many years of expertise in coaching and people who have worked with me, are serious about getting the most out of their life

4 Are you qualified? I am a well established, experienced and qualified Informal and Community Educator. A certified Life Coach, a certified Youth Work Supervisor and certified in CPCAB Counselling. I am set up with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). I follow two ethical guidelines; the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and the National Youth Agency (NYA). I use each of these frameworks to guide my practice with clients.

5 Do I prefer structure or a more bespoke approach? My coaching sessions are totally customised to suit your needs, your goals and your personality. I have an approach that will support you to reach your desired dream. You will feel understood (at last!), supported and reassured that you are in really safe hands whilst you do the work regarding changing your life.

6 What results have they achieved with other clients? Do look at the testimonials and if need be ask to speak to a satisfied client. On my website, you will see testimonials, let their stories guide you. I am still building on clients testimonials, however, those who have worked with me over the years would tell you that I am the most realistic and effective coach that you can ever get.

7 Will the coach give me advice? A coach does not necessarily offer direct advice. We tend to steer clear of telling clients exactly what to do. We come from the position that you have all the great abilities within you to get to where you want to be. We help you find your key to unlock your own talent so you are powerfully able to create a life you will live not just now but for evermore. You may not understand it now, but wait till you start having your sessions, you’ll be surprised by all the suggestions you create.

8 Do I have chemistry with the coach? This is essential. You have to like and trust your coach or the process won’t work. If you feel it’s a mismatch of personality or you don’t trust them, try another coach. Equally the coach may say that they don’t see the relationship being a good fit and may recommend another coach.

9 Does the coach have a coach? Yes. Always. I have 3 coaches in 3 different fields to help pull me up to greater levels and keep me at my best. Is this for me? You should feel optimistic, thrilled, excited and really engaged with the idea of working with this coach. Coaching is a serious business but it can also be fun, enlightening and deeply life-changing. You should feel truly joyous to be working with the coach of your choice. It’s your life so choose the right coach to make it a truly awesome one.
