Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Life Coach?
Making this as short and sweet as possible: A life coach is a professional whose main objective is to empower you in various area’s so that you see progress and obtain results you otherwise have struggled with. Basically, my job is to help you become clear on where you are in your journey, determine what you want to work towards, and then help you to create a path that will help you get there with the most success.
Here’s how: I help you see your brain, provide unbiased support, guidance, tools, accountability, techniques, and calls to action that promote real sustainable progress.
This is made possible only through one’s commitment to self-development.
Who hires a life coach?
Anyone and everyone. Basically anyone struggling to obtain their desired results and see’s the value in being supported by someone who has. Below are a few examples:
- Transition – life or professional
- Personal or Professional Goals
- One’s desire to find balance – avoid the dreaded burnout.
And so many more!
Is coaching a type of therapy?
Absolutely not. A life coach doesn’t counsel you in the way therapist would. A coach might challenge you to become more self-aware, suggest tools and be of support, but does not diagnose or treat mental health disorders or symptoms. The focus for a coach is really to empower you to accomplish what YOU WANT for your present and future self. I honestly support working with both.
How does one become a life coach?
Most people become a life coach because they have a calling on their heart to help others achieve results in their life and want to share how they have made this happen for themselves. Below are some steps a person can take to become a professional life coach.
Because coaching is not regulated, certification is not required. However, you will find many coaches have earned certification. All though that does not prove they are a quality coach, it does show they are invested in some type of professional training and perhaps continued education on a consistent basis.
What is the difference between a coach and a consultant?
A consultant is hired because they have the answers and are expected to provide them, a coach is hired to empower and support you as you look inward to find the answers and results for yourself.
Both coach and consultant are a valuable resource but a coach use strategies and techniques to pull to the surface truths and understandings that can be used across every area of life. As a personal growth mentor with a clients permission, I do a little of both.
How much does a session cost
When you sign up for personal 1:1 coaching we work together for an entire year and meet on a weekly basis. Most clients see massive progress or get results within the first few months but a year gives you time to have a few set backs and get back up and prove to yourself you got this shit. The current rate for that is $3996 with monthly payment options that total up to this same rate. But this is not the only way to be supported and receive coaching. Roots Change is personal growth membership community and every client has access to biweekly coaching & tools there.
