“Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential” – International Coach Federation.
Life Coaching may also be defined as a collaboration between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to the client. The best part about coaching is that the client finds his/her own solutions and answers.
Life Coaching is not counseling and it is not therapy.
A coaching session involves questions asked by me (the coach) and through these questions I will guide you, nudge you a little, make you see your issue from another angle or direction. That’s all. Ultimately it is you, who will find the answers and solve all your problems.
You will be making all the decisions and finding all the answers! Sometimes we get stuck and can see our issue from only one angle, I will guide you and let you see the situation from all the angles helping you decide how best you approach it and finally solve it.
Coaching makes the client feel empowered.
