Frequently asked coaching questions !

Frequently asked coaching questions !


There’s something very beautiful in knowing that it’s never too late to live the life we’re meant to live. That if we’re blessed with this moment, we are equality blessed with opportunity – opportunity to recognize that our past does not need to dictate our present. Only fear and self sabotage can really hold us down. When we truly start to believe in the power of now, we allow in rays of hope & with HOPE,  ALL is possible !


** Do I have to live near you to be a coaching client ?

No, in fact all of my coaching is done online, this allows me to coach clients from all over the world, thanks to the power of the internet. Currently, all clients to date have loved having our sessions in the facebook private message section. It’s convenient, the conversations move fast like real time and there is no video involved so you can be coaching in the comfort of whatever it is you have going on. Do you struggle with social anxiety where it’s hard to share in person or via video ? If so, this may be the coaching for you. 


** Are you a weight loss coach ?

While I do help a lot of people with this goal and love doing so,  I myself will always be on my own wellness journey so the fast answer is… yes I can, and love to help in this area but it’s not all I do !  Sitting here over 10 years after I began coaching out of my 30’s and into my 40’s I get to see things from a different perspective with more life experience. It’s the journey between then and now where I have learned so much. I now know that true happiness is found in gaining life & not merely in loosing weight. I’ve learned that surface goals always have layers like an onion & real change & growth comes from peeling back the layers.  I’ve been honored to work with people from all over the world and my desire is to help them make life dreams & intentions into realities with action plans !! You see, when I started my journey, I had lost 80 pounds, which was amazing but a lifetime has passed since that time, I’ve had two more children and now a mother of 4, it’s safe to say that my body has changed pretty drastically over the last 19 years since my 1st was born. I’m not down all those 80 lbs anymore but I have found peace & value in who I am… the way I am…. in the skin I’m in and THAT is the gift I want to give others, to help YOU live your best life NOW while at the same time reaching for amazing goals and helping you every step of the way in making them a reality. I will forever be on my own journey and as I type this today May 29th 2022, I myself have a weightloss goal where I am down 22lbs with a goal to lose 50 lbs more.

** Can you help me overcome challenges from past trauma ? This is very fragile ground that I take extremely seriously. First, my coaching is not meant to be a substitution for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care or substance abuse treatment. I am a certified LIFE / WELLNESS coach and I am not in any way qualified to diagnose or treat mental health disorders. In saying this, many clients have signed up for coaching after having worked with such professionals or while working with such professionals  and find my methods, care and understanding very helpful in finding a way to move forward. The work of a life coach in my view and by definition, is to truly listen and ask thought provoking questions that help their clients work out and voice current life blocks where together, they come up with a solution in how to move forward. Coaching isn’t meant to spend time in the past, it’s all about forward movement ! A client may dive into what’s been holding them back and as a team, they may spend some time dissecting this but only as a means to better understand the path forward. Coaches help their clients find their own solutions. 


** Do I need to have a session every week ?

YES !! At times I know that illness or life events can come up and can’t be helped ( in this situation, I give 24 hrs to cancel a session and the missed week will be added to the end of your coaching sessions so you don’t lose that session ) otherwise, I have everything set up the way I do for your  maximum success. The breakdown is (1) 30 – 60 min session a week with an open door policy to touch base Monday – Sunday yup, that’s right…my clients can touch base 7 days a week if they wish ! 


** Will coaching work if I’m not sure I want to make changes ?

Maybe….perhaps along the way of coaching you’ll realize you do want to make changes, perhaps you’ll realize you don’t. This is always why I ask people to apply IF you feel ready to at least start the work. I’m not so arrogant to think that ( I ) can change you, as a coach my focus isn’t to fix you, it’s to help you create the life path you want. Hand in hand, choice by choice, we work as a team and part of team work means ( two ) people committed to the process !


** Does your coaching cost money ?

Yes, this coaching I’m offering does. I have been holding free events since 2011 almost monthly and I use my coaching to provide free coaching tips and anything else I can possibly provide for free, daily since 2011 on my facebook page. This coaching is different because I am making a commitment to you daily for months, this is also the coaching I became certified and accredited for. I spend countless hours reading and fine tuning my skills and I do this all continuing on my own journey. If worried once you pay I’ll disappear, PLEASE check out my facebook page, you’ll see I have been posting daily since 2011,  I’m not going anywhere and my wall is also open for people to post anything they wish, I’ve never had any negative comments left, in this case, please let the footprint I’ve left online for years help guide you.  


** Are you a coach because you’re perfect and have your entire life together ? ( Ok, no one has asked this lol  but I want to put this out there )

NO !!!!! You and I aren’t that different, we are both walking life’s path and doing the best we can. I continue on my own health journey strong and have been for years. I know what it feels like to want to make changes, to feel hopeless with no self love and my passion for coaching comes from knowing that we as people CAN live our best most blessed life if we are willing to start the wheels of change. Along with my passion, I have schooling and the experience of working with 100’s of people over the last almost 10 years.


** Does online coaching really work ?  
You know, I asked myself the same question when I started coaching in 2012. When I realized coaching was what I had always been meant to do, I had this idea in my head of how I personally could best serve others as a coach and I knew offering my coaching online felt right. At the time all these years ago, I had never heard of a coach offering  sessions solely in a typing only format like in facebook private message. There was face time and over the phone along with in person but no online offered in this way that I could find, in fact, when I brought it up to my teachers in coaching school they had never heard of it either and felt I should go the regular way for optimal success. Ultimately, I decided to follow my heart and I created my own coaching method and business from the ground up as there were no examples of this being done for me to base my model off of. I look back now and think wow, you did that. Why was I so drawn to this way of coaching from the very start ? The answer goes deep for me because I know when I was feeling my lowest, in self love, respect and belief with social anxiety the chance of me going to see a coach in person was NOT something I would do. I thought about what would have helped me the most when I felt the lowest and I knew it was a place where my voice, challenges, thoughts and feelings could be heard and shared without me physically having to show up, a place where I could just feel 100 % at ease and heard in my own comfort zone. If you’re my ideal client, you get and understand what I’m saying. This got me wondering how many others felt like I did, who needed this type of space to truly share and I wanted to make this option possible so I did.  There is actually great power in silence, in the sessions I provide, the only sound is the sound from the keyboard which opens more room to hear yourself think. It allows you space to reflect and go deep down to the core of the matter without feeling rushed. Just think, if I asked you a BIG life question in person, would you feel comfortable taking at least 30 – 60 seconds + needed to reflect or would you be more apt to just rush to an answer that you feel is the right answer because someone is sitting there waiting for a reply. Get out a timer and be silent for 30 – 60 seconds, for many, this is not a comfortable thing in person or over the phone. I realize in person, over the phone and face time coaching has helped MANY people and does work so I shout out and applaud all the awesome coaches out there. What I’m saying is, some people, like me needed another option and I 101 % believe in the effectiveness of the online coaching I provide and have personally witnessed my clients benefit time and time again.
