Frequently Asked Questions.

1.   Q: For how long will I need coaching?

A: This depends very much on what you want to achieve. I would, however, recommend a minimum of six sessions in order to feel the real benefits achieved through the momentum gathered by continuous attention placed on your issue.

2.   Q: How often will I have coaching sessions?

A: Sessions are generally on a weekly or a fortnightly basis in order for you to be able to maintain momentum in between sessions. However, they can be arranged at intervals most suitable for you.

3.   Q: By what means are coaching sessions conducted?

A: Coaching sessions can be conducted either in person, over the telephone or via Skype. The medium by which they are conducted will be arranged individually at the time of establishing the coaching framework.
For face to face sessions I am Surrey based.

4.   Q: How long are coaching sessions?

A: Coaching sessions generally run for an hour and a half. I have found that this is generally how long it takes to get to the ah-ha moment.

5.   Q: How much will life coaching cost?

A: There are different packages available depending on the framework within which you would like coaching sessions to be conducted.
Please contact me for more information.

6.   Q: What is the difference between coaching and counselling or other therapy?

A: Life coaching assumes you to be psychologically well and looking to improve yourself or resolve a situation in your life. Whilst acknowledging the past, coaching focuses on the future, working with you to remove previous limitations and bridge the gap between where you are now and where you would like to be.
The work of therapists' generally focuses on the past in order to provide understanding and help the client make sense of his/her current situation.
It should be noted that the client might achieve the most positive results by conducting coaching alongside any treatment or therapy.

7.   Q: What is the difference between coaching and consulting or mentoring?

A: Mentoring, consulting and coaching are all widely used within people's professional lives and within corporations. Whereas coaches seek to draw out the innate potential of the coachee through incisive questioning, a safe environment and a change in their thinking, mentors/consultants are employed because of their prior experience and offer advice on the best course of action.

8.   Q: Are you qualified as a professional coach with an accredited qualification?

A: Yes. I achieved distinctions in both my Personal Performance Coaching Diploma and my Corporate and Executive Coaching Diploma which qualify me as a Professional Performance Coach and a Professional Corporate and Executive Coach respectively.

Whilst there is no single awarding body for coaching qualifications, the diplomas that I completed with the Coaching Academy have four external, professional and academic endorsements and accreditations. These are:

  • The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM)
  • The Open and Distance Learning Quality Council
  • The Open College Network at their highest level
  • Education Development International plc

I am also qualified as an NLP (neuro linguistic programming) practitioner having trained with Dr Richard Bandler, one of the co-creators of this amazing approach to looking at the way that we think.
