Can coaching help me overcome a specific challenge or obstacle?

Coaching can help you overcome specific challenges or obstacles by providing support, guidance, and accountability. One of the primary goals of coaching is to help individuals identify and overcome barriers that may be preventing them from achieving their goals or realizing their potential.

Coaches use various techniques and tools to help their clients overcome challenges, such as:

  • Clarifying goals and creating a plan of action to achieve them
  • Identifying limiting beliefs and replacing them with more empowering ones
  • Developing skills and strategies to overcome specific challenges or obstacles
  • Providing support and accountability to stay on track and overcome setbacks

Coaching can help you overcome a wide range of challenges, whether they are personal or professional in nature. Some examples of challenges that coaching can help with include career transitions, relationship issues, stress management, time management, and self-confidence.

It's important to note that coaching is a collaborative process, and the success of coaching depends on your willingness to take action and apply the strategies and tools provided by your coach.

How is Coaching Different from Therapy and other professions?

Professional coaching focuses on setting goals, creating outcomes, and managing personal change. Sometimes it’s even more helpful to understand coaching by distinguishing it from other personal or organizational support professions.

Therapy deals with healing pain, dysfunction, and conflict within an individual or in relationships. The focus is often on resolving difficulties arising from the past that hamper an individual’s emotional functioning in the present, improving overall psychological functioning, and dealing with the present in more emotionally healthy ways. Conversely, coaching supports personal and professional growth based on self-initiated change in pursuit of specific, actionable outcomes. These outcomes are linked to personal or professional success. Coaching is future-focused. While positive feelings/emotions may be a natural outcome of coaching, the primary focus is creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals in one’s work or personal life. The emphases in a coaching relationship are action, accountability, and follow-through.

Consulting: Individuals or organizations retain consultants for their expertise. While consulting approaches vary widely, the assumption is that the consultant will diagnose problems and prescribe and, sometimes, implement solutions. With coaching, the assumption is that individuals or teams can generate their solutions, with the coach supplying supportive, discovery-based approaches and frameworks.

Mentoring: A mentor is an expert who provides wisdom and guidance based on experience. Mentoring may include advising, counseling, and coaching.

Do you guarantee results from your Coaching Process and Program?

While coaches may strive to help clients achieve their desired outcomes and make progress toward their goals, it is essential to note that coaches do not guarantee results or outcomes. Therefore, the coaching process does not ensure success, and the client remains ultimately responsible for their own decisions, actions, and outcomes.

Before entering into a coaching engagement, it is important to clarify expectations, goals, and objectives with your coach and to clearly understand the scope and limitations of coaching.

How Confidential is Coaching? Do you guarantee the privacy of my information?

Yes, coaching sessions are confidential. As a client, you have the right to privacy and confidentiality in your coaching sessions, and ethical and professional standards bind your coach to keep your information confidential. This means we will not disclose any information you share during our coaching sessions without your explicit consent, except in rare cases where there is a legal or ethical obligation to do so, such as when there is a risk of harm to yourself or others.

It is important to discuss confidentiality and privacy with us before beginning coaching sessions to ensure that we are both on the same page about the scope and limitations of confidentiality. It is also important to note that coaching is not a substitute for therapy or counseling. If you have concerns about your mental health or well-being, you should seek appropriate professional help.

Do I need to sign a contract?

Yes. Our agreement sets out the terms and conditions for successfully delivering the life coaching service and achieving results. Krystle Hearley uses a simple but comprehensive agreement as a foundation for your mindset and life coaching adventure.

Is Coaching Worth the Investment?

Whether coaching is worth the investment depends on your situation and goals. Coaching can provide valuable support and guidance in various areas, such as career development, relationship building, and personal growth. It can also help you identify and overcome obstacles that may hold you back from moving forward. However, coaching is a personal investment, and it's essential to consider your financial resources and priorities before deciding.

Do I really need a Coach? Can’t I figure it out by myself?

We feel life and mindset coaching is the opportunity to go above and beyond your personal limitations. Sometimes we often don’t know what is standing in our way. We can offer an unbiased and objective perspective. You also get that extra push of motivation and support from an individual who realizes that daily applicable zeal and zest work in achieving and maintaining their established goals.

Ok, I’m Ready to Start! What’s the next step?

Creating real and lasting change in yourself, your relationship, or your career is not an event: it’s a growth process. This growth process happens over time when you partner with an effective coach who can help you gain self-awareness, learn new skills, and take action to get better results.

The first step in this life-changing journey is to schedule a call with me to discuss your hopes and goals and ensure it’s a good fit before moving forward.
