We can fly much farther together than we can alone.

Coaching is a beautiful space where you are intentionally investing in your life - in what is most important to you right here, right now. Rarely do we have the margin or opportunity in life to devote intentional time to our own process, dreams, goals, and desires. Coaching gives you a place to do just that.

Coaching is an ongoing conversation that empowers a person (or group) to fully live out the good intention that God has for them - in their everyday life and profession. The goal of coaching is to give space for you to engage with Holy Spirit, to discover new things about yourself, and to take intentional action to reshape your life around those discoveries. Coaching helps produce insights, greater personal awareness, and helps you walk out your identity practically as a son and daughter in everyday life.

coaching series & sessions

A coaching series is usually 7-12 sessions with your coach. Sessions happen once every 2 weeks, and usually go for about 35-60 minutes. In those sessions, you are focussing on accomplishing the goals that you set at the beginning of your coaching series.

 
 

 
 

your goals

This is about you and your goals. At the start of a coaching series, we’ll hone in together on 3 or so things that are important to you right now. It could be about your vocation, your family, your relationships, your health and wellness, your relationship with God…the options are limitless!

action steps

Coaching is all about action and forward momentum. At the end of each coaching session, you’ll settle in on 3 or so action steps that you’re going to do in the two weeks before your next call. You’ll be surprised at how much you can accomplish when you put your heart and soul into it.

whERE AND HOW do we MEET?

I do the majority of my coaching over the phone or Facetime (or Skype or Zoom.) If you are in the Fraser Valley area and would prefer to meet in person, this is absolutely doable. However, doing it over the phone saves us both time and money.

 
 
 
 

1. Is coaching the same as counselling?

No. Many of the communication techniques are the same, like active listening, reflecting, use of questions, limited advice giving, etc. The main difference is that therapy focuses on the past to bring healing and unblock a person to move ahead. Coaching is future and action-oriented, for people who are basically clear of psychological and emotional issues. 

2. Is it mentoring? 

No. Mentors may use some coaching techniques, but mentors usually play the roles of advisor and teacher to guide and impart knowledge and wisdom. Coaching is different in that it is focussed on helping someone arrive at their own insights and plans. 

3. Is it training?

No again. In training, the trainer sets the agenda. In coaching, you set the agenda. The coach comes alongside to help you discover what you want to do to move forward. 

4. How does certification work with life coaching? 

Most coaches are certified through the International Coaches Federation, which requires coaches to receive professional training, accountability, and continued learning to maintain their coaching certification. 

5. How do payments work?

Payments happen every 2 sessions. Some clients prefer to pay all up front. But most clients pay every 2 sessions. This works out to being about once a month.


6. Is coaching a limitless contract?

No. Most coaching series go between 6-10 sessions. You work on the goals that you set at the start, and move towards them in the 10 sessions.
