Frequently Asked Questions
What is a dating coach?
A dating coach is a professional who helps clients achieve their relationship goals – getting ready to date, finding a soul mate, and maintaining and fostering healthy communication skills. Sometimes people are unclear about what they want or need. A dating coach provides guidance on how to navigate various crossroads in life.
Coaching relies on positive psychology principles that empower clients to generate lasting transformation. The coach will help the client to look at life’s challenges from a different perspective. It takes work but the coach provides the client with guidance, support, tools and feedback.
How is coaching different from consulting or therapy?
Consultants advise their clients about how to solve problems. Coaches guide their clients to their own solution. While therapy tends to focus on treating past emotional issues and how they color the present, coaching looks at the present with a focus on the future. Coaching considers where the clients are now, where they want to be, and how to get there. In general, coaching is more action oriented.
What happens during a coaching session?
We start by evaluating your current situation, determining what topic you want to focus on and identifying what you want to take away from each session. I ask questions designed to challenge your assumptions, foster your own insights and explore your options of possibilities. Once your goals and anticipated breakthroughs have been defined, you commit to taking specific action steps before we talk again. We will then review the progress and make necessary adjustments until you reach your goals.
Each session lasts 60 minutes and is scheduled weekly at a standing time. We can meet over the phone or Zoom video conferencing.
How do we establish trust?
Confidentiality will be fully maintained. No personal information about you will be shared. I will adhere to the International Coaching Federation (ICF) Code of Ethics in our coaching relationship.
Which package is for me?
Coaching works quickly. To experience lasting change, scientific studies have shown that it takes about three months. Ultimately, the more devoted you are, the more you’ll get out of coaching.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule a session?
If you must cancel or reschedule, please give a 24-hour notice.
What type of payment do you accept?
We accept PayPal, debit, or credit cards. Please note that all bookings must be paid in advance.
