NO! While these two are similar in that both professionals ask our clients deep & thought-provoking questions, our focus is different. Counselors tend to focus on the past and how that affects the present. As a coach, I will focus on the present & ask future-focused questions to inspire optimism and unlock the realm of possibilities for you!
The chief requirement of coaching is for you to show up fully! You will need to be open, trusting, and honest within the coaching relationship. Both time available & a high commitment level are required to complete goals and homework assignments between sessions. Ultimately your level of commitment will directly influence the speed and extent to which your goals will be realized. To help you with all of this, as your coach, I provide boundless motivation, support, and encouragement within a confidential and non-judgemental environment.
All coaching sessions whether in person or via zoom last approximately one hour. These sessions can range from weekly, to bi-weekly or monthly, whatever suits your life and the speed at which you can take action to achieve your goals.
In my experience, every type of individual will come to me for coaching. The only traits these people have in common are the desire to change part of their life, so they are happier, and the realization that they will stay focused & get there quicker with the support of a coach.
During each session, we will quickly update on goals and progress made since the previous session. We will then set an agenda to clearly outline what you want to achieve by the end of the session. We then explore topics connected to the agenda & we will unearth reasonable goals & actions items for you to takeaway
One significant benefit is having someone solely dedicated to you & the achievement of your goals. As a coach, I am non-judgemental, supportive, encouraging, and motivating just when you need it. I help keep you focused on where you are and help build a bridge to where you want to be. I also help you find the motivation to keep moving forward in the right direction. Coaching enables you to get to where you want to be in life much faster than you could on your own.
This depends on what you want to achieve. Most people come to me with a life-changing goal in mind. To achieve this, we explore the topic in great detail. Then we set up SMART goals to break down often lofty goals into smaller, more manageable pieces. For some, this may take as little as six sessions, and for others, it will be more. It is a very personal decision based on your individual goal.
For most cases, coaching will take place via a private 1:1 zoom video session. Video helps simulate the in-person dynamic & helps us to build rapport. This has proven to be the most convenient way for individuals to fit coaching into their busy lives. Besides the zoom session, you will need a quiet room with no distractions where you can focus on the conversation & a pen and paper to write down insights & goals. Face-to-face coaching is also available to those in the local area if they prefer this option.
At Remarkable, we believe that YOU ALONE are key to your success and happiness in life. However, using our tools, powerful questions, and accountability measures, we can help you experience real & meaningful change. These techniques are proven to help you break out of old habits & ways of thinking that aren't serving you, establish new and healthy habits, and ultimately give yourself the attention necessary to fuel your hopes & dreams with hope & not dread! We explore your intricacies and help you map out the road to your desired future!
