Frequently Asked Questions
What is personal development and transformation coaching?
Personal development and transformation coaching is a process wherein a skilled coach helps you discover, develop and maximise your own true, unique potential and life purpose. It includes helping you understand yourself, what drives you, what stops you from achieving what you want out of life, understand why you are not feeling fulfilled even when you seem to have what you thought you wanted. It helps you set goals that are aligned with who you truly are and helps you achieve them. It helps you dissolve fears, guilt and limiting belief stopping you from uncovering and living what you’d love to do in life.
What can it do for me?
It can transform you from someone who is:
unclear, unsure, just getting by, frustrated, feeling chaotic, feeling you’re not good enough, feeling you don’t have what it takes, scared, afraid of rejection, looking at the outside world for answers, looking at others to make you feel good about yourself, feeling unsuccessful, lacking confidence, lacking direction
to someone who is:
clear, certain, achieving, knowing you are someone with big things to share to the world, calm, aware and expressing fully your true talents and gifts, knowing what to do to be where you would love to be, courageous, able to embrace rejection with confidence, know how to search yourself for answers that are true for you, have inner certainty and knowing of your true brilliance.
Can personal development and transformation coaching help me to become more successful?
Yes. The primary aim of this coaching is to help you uncover, realise and express your unique gifts and life purpose that can be deeply buried in some of us so you truly do what you love and love what you do.
You will increase your self-worth, expand your awareness and influence and acquire and develop tools and skills that will help you in the fulfilment of your dreams and vision such as understanding your true values, learning how to balance your perceptions, dissolving your fears, emotional charges and barriers, understanding how you personally affect financial wealth in your life and what you can do to increase it, having loving and effective communication with others and creating strategies that are actionable
The by-product of these is your growth, fulfilment and achievement in the areas of life that are most important to you including your career, business and relationships.
I'm not clear on my direction. Can life coaching me?
Yes, life coaching can provide you guidance on what you would really love to do in life and how you can get there. Coaching provides a knowing that this is the direction you want to take in your life.
I know where I want to head but my current circumstances make it impossible for me to go for it. How can this coaching help me?
Sometimes, we get ourselves stuck with the belief that we cannot do what we would love in life, perhaps due to financial, family or other responsibilities.
Because we don’t want to disappoint ourselves or others and because we don’t yet know how to achieve what we would love, we make ourselves believe that what we want is impossible and we try to forget them and not work on strategies that will help us fulfil our dreams.
However, we are not put on this earth with a dream in our hearts that cannot be manifested. When a dream is heartfelt and it is truly what we would love, there is always a way if we give ourselves the permission, realistic time frame, belief in ourselves and outside help that we need.
Personal development and transformation coaching can help you clarify your dreams, help you become empowered and aware of your strengths, help you learn how to communicate your dreams with others so you get supported and help you put strategies in place so you can fulfil what is in your heart.
Is life coaching worth investing your time into?
The answer to "is it worth it?" is in the results you get.
You cannot have clarity and direction in all areas of your life but if you finally resolve the issues that been bothering you for a while, if you finally understand where you are at and why you are there, if you finally know your purpose and live it, if you are finally able to realise and express that brilliance that is hiding within you, if you finally have the courage, confidence and strategies to do what you would love to do in life, wouldn’t it be worth the time and money that you spend?
How long before I see the results that I want?
The time frame for getting your results varies from person to person.
Just like a physical injury, the time to heal varies.
For short-term type “goals” such as getting over a very specific fear, anger or guilt over something that is blocking you from moving forward in life, you can get your results in as little as 1 hour even if you have been holding this specific fear, anger or guilt for months or even years when we work together on a one-on-one session.
Long-term goals and their achievement and blockages take substantially longer. As a life coach, my role is to help you clarify those long-term goals, help you create the strategic action steps to achieve them and help you identify and resolve the commitment barriers that you may have.
I like to see a life coach but I don't know whether you are the right one for me. When is it the right time?
Finding the right life coach is a very difficult decision. Procastination is a common issue amongst new clients. Confiding with a life coach is a sign of weakness and vulnerability to some new clients. There is no right time and exact moment to see a life coach. The most important factor is finding the life coach that you resonate with and you are most comfortable speaking openly with.
You will know whether the life coach you speak will be the right one. Just like seeing a doctor or accountant, the relationship you form on a professional level may be the relationship that shapes your future direction.
I just have a general feeling of being unfulfilled but I don’t know exactly why. Can you help me?
Yes, this coaching can help you be clear on the issues why you are unfulfilled and what you can do about it.
What if I turn out to be the person I don’t want to become?
Personal development and life coaching is not about turning you into something you don’t want to become. It is about helping you awaken yourself to the true you and helping you awaken to your true potential and purpose. It also helps you embrace all your different qualities and traits.
Will it take a lot of effort to change? Is it difficult?
It’s our perception and hierarchy of values that dictate whether we see things as difficult or easy. Part of the process is to help you see things from a different perspective so it is no longer a roadblock for you but a fuel to move you forward.
