what is the difference between coaching and counselling?

While coaching and counselling are the same in that both provide you with a helpful relationship with a person to support your wellness and growth, coaches and counsellors can have significant differences in their training, their methods, and their goals. A coach will not give advice or help you with serious mental health issues. If we believe that a topic is not in our remit we will help you decide which path to take instead.

What does a coaching session look like?

Coaching is done via telephone, FaceTime or Zoom so you can avoid additional travel expenses and taking time out of clinic. If you would like the team to visit your clinic please get in touch. In a typical coaching session, we will spend a few minutes going over the previous actions and celebrate any failures (yes we celebrate everything) or achievements. We then go through the coaching model asking relevant and probing questions that are designed to challenge you and open up the conversation. We will work towards your overall goal by creating a session goal by nailing down the next step. You need to make sure you have something in mind; even if you think you know the answer we will work on possible steps you could take and then work out a plan to get you to where you want to be. Now you simply put your plan into action, no matter how small your step is – we will do this together.

What if I fail or don’t manage to do anything in between sessions?

Failure is the first step to success so celebrate it, you’re almost there and remember that failure is a part of moving forward. Remember when you first started to learn to ride a bike or drive a car and now it’s just second nature. That’s what we are doing here.

Do we only coach healthcare providers and business owners?

We know our stuff when it comes to running, growing or building a business or clinic but we also have experience in helping health care professionals who don’t run their own business. I also find that my clients want to work on issues that affect everyone such as confidence, relationships and conflict resolution, work/life balance, money, personal health and fitness goals, or figuring out their next career move. We all seem to want similar things so if you are not a health care professional or run a business, we can still help you if you feel our story resonates with you, and you want to work with us. We offer an initial chat with potential clients first so we can both see if we connect and have the right rapport.
