Are there professional standards for the coaching industry?


Yes, there is a code of ethics, core competencies, accreditation processes and an International Coach Federation (industry association) that promotes the advancement of coaches. To learn more about this click here: http://www.coachfederation.org/ICF/

How will I know you are the right coach for me?
During our initial conversations and/or discovery session, together we will identify if this is an appropriate fit. So before you say "yes", you will have a sample of what the coaching experience will be like. Until then, click on my BIO page to learn more about myself and my approach in coaching.

How do I get started in the coaching process?


If you are interested in beginning the coaching process, please contact me via phone or e-mail so we can schedule our initial discovery session to further explore the details of the coaching relationship.

What can you expect from me as your coach?


1. Partner with you in bringing out the best, the deepest, and the truest in you
2. Provide safety, encouragement and support; an environment in which you can relax and explore
3. Respect the confidentiality of the agreements we make
4. Expand your view of what is possible and promote discovery of new insights
5. To hold no judgement and to provide no advice when in coach position
6. Listen carefully to what you say and ask questions that increase awareness
7. Be an on-going resource for you in accomplishing your intentions

What if I sign up for this and decide it is not right for me? Do you have a money back guarantee?


Yes, I call it my "participate and get your money back" guarantee. If within the first month of our relationship you show up to the calls and participate fully in the coaching process, you can simply let me know this is not working for you and I will completely refund your money. To honor the coaching agreement and the coaching process, if you sign up and do not show up for your coaching sessions, do not make an effort to complete the follow up work, etc, then I will not refund your money

Forms, Documents and Resources Available

  • What makes up a “Welcome Packet” and what do I do with this?
    • By completing the information in the welcome packet, you are providing me with some helpful information so I know best how to support you, guide you and work together with you.  A welcome packet consists of some basic forms, documents and resources that will help to get us started in the coaching process.  It includes a “Client Profile” form, a “Goals” form and also a “Discovery” form.  You will also find our coaching agreement located in this packet.  It is customary for you to complete these items prior to our initial coaching session together.
