Q&A with Laura.
Is coaching really effective?
I truly believe in coaching—which is why I have one myself. Working with a coach does require enthusiasm on the part of the client, however. If you are on the fence, trying a free session is a great way to test it out for yourself.
What happens in a coaching session?
A coaching session is a specialized conversation that asks, What is it that you want? What difference would it make in your life if you had it? How would you know if you got it? and What are you already doing and what could you do in order to get it? There is more to coaching than that, but it’s a great place to start.
Is coaching just straight-up advice?
A coaching conversation is not advice.
Do you need training and certification to be a coach?
As a trained, certified coach, I offer a high level of service that complies with the ethical standards and skill requirements of the International Coaching Federation.
Can I bring my partner?
Yes, if that’s how we set it up from the beginning.
How many coaching sessions do people typically do?
It’s really up to each client to customize the service to suit themselves.
Can I get a free consultation before I decide?
Yes, with no pressure to commit to anything ongoing.
