WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?
Coaching is a tool that is used to empower individuals and help them reach their goals; it is a structured conversation between the Coach and the Client.
During a coaching session your coach will walk by your side to help you to reach your ultimate goal and aspirations. They will listen to you, ask questions, find out what your challenges are and inspire you to reach that end goal.
You will be encouraged to make decisions and take responsibility for these decisions.
WHAT COACHING IS NOT?
Coaching is not about your coach giving you suggestions or advice. They are not mentoring or counselling you.
If you commence a series of coaching sessions and it is deemed that coaching is not the correct support mechanism for you at this moment in time, this will be discussed with you directly to find a suitable solution to support your onward journey.
HOW DOES COACHING WORK?
Different coaches use different models to structure their sessions. A popular model is the GROW model which is an acronym for the areas explored, Goals, Reality, Options and Way forward.
This model keeps you moving forward towards your goal. Your coach will be asking you questions, listening to your responses, challenging you whilst all the time remaining non-judgemental regarding the details and not offering you any advice.
