Frequently Asked Questions

What does a life and career coach do?

Unlike a psychologist, psychotherapist or counsellor, I don’t dig into your past, but will rather set you up for success to manage your future.

I’ll help you to achieve clarity and more control over how you want to live your life.

Can I speak with you before I commit to a coaching programme?

Of course, you can. I speak with every client before we start the coaching programme. I’ll need to make sure that my coaching programme is right for you.

How long will I need to work with you?

That depends on you. The timeframes for my programmes are based on experience and designed to realistically achieve the goals that you are setting.

If the programme is not working for you, then we can talk about refunding options. Please also read my Terms & Conditions

If you feel that you want to continue with coaching after you have finished your programme, then I’m happy to extend the coaching.

You say that you coach people aged 40+. Will you still coach me if I’m younger?

That depends on your coaching needs. First and foremost, I coach people who want to make a change in their lives. For many people, turning 40 is a significant step that changes many things – but that also means that people who desire change before turning 40 are very welcome to work with me.

What happens during a coaching session?

Each session builds on the previous sessions and leads to overall progress and personal success. In the first session we’ll start out with defining some actions that you need to complete.

During each following session we will review the actions and progress that you have made since the previous session and overall.

Our next step is to set a session goal and define what you would like to achieve during the ongoing sessions. We then explore this goal, where you stand right now, what you have tried in order to reach this goal, which of your approaches have been successful and which obstacles you’ve met while working on your goal.

Because there is always more than one way to reach a goal, we will be exploring options that might work for you. During this process, I will teach you techniques and ways how you can achieve your goals.

The final part of the session will be to set new goals for your next session and check how these goals fit into your overall strategy.

Where does the coaching take place?

That depends. I can coach remotely (Skype, telephone) or face to face at a place that suits you best.

What do I need to do?

The results of your “Journey of Change” will be worthwhile, but you need to be aware that it’s a hard and life-long journey.

Taking this journey requires hard work and effort, but it is fun too. You will discover your superpowers and ability to live the life you love.

Will I always need coaching whenever I have a problem?

No, you won’t. Look at me like a teacher who will provide you with the tools and strategies that will enable you to move from surviving to thriving in life. Coaching is a process and you will develop new skills that you can apply once we have finished the coaching programme.

Once we’ve finished the coaching programme you will:

  • Have more clarity about who you are (your purpose).
  • Be able to overcome your roadblocks and achieve your goals (again and again).
  • Embrace change and be able to manage your fears.
  • Live a more balanced life where you’re much more content and at peace with your world

However, you know where to find me if you would like to work with me again!

What if we find out that we don’t work well together?

If you are not happy with the coaching programme, please talk with me, and I’ll do the same. We both need to be fully committed to the coaching programme to make it successful. If we aren’t be able to make it work, then we both can opt out of the programme.

We can then talk about refunding options. Please also read my Terms & Conditions

Your coaching sounds like a good option for me. How can I find out more?
