Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve compiled a list of the most frequent questions that I have received over my career. It’s normal and encouraged for clients to ask many questions when choosing to work with a Certified Professional Life Coach. Here are some answers to the questions I receive the most. If you can’t find what you are looking for, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
What is Life Coaching
ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
At Be Wyse Life Coaching, we help clients achieve their goals through powerful conversations that are intended to inspire new thinking, perceptions, and behavior that actualize your potential, improve your performance, create focus and directional clarity, support the achievement of your personal and professional goals, and enhance the quality of your life.
What is the difference between life coaching and counselling?
Counseling is a past-focused discipline, in which the counselor identifies the reasons for the person’s feelings and behaviors and offers ways to handle a particular issue.
In life coaching, we do not dwell on the reasons or diagnosis. Instead, we focus on the future, because no matter what has happened in the past, any person can make it better and learn to achieve, grow and be happy.
Although working with a great Life Coach can be therapeutic, life coaching should never be used a as substitution for mental health counseling or therapy. With that being said a skilled and trained Life Coach may prevent a mental health crisis. As a Professional Life Coach, I help clients evaluate the present state and create action plans to design the life they desire.
Do I need to sign a life coaching contract?
Yes. A life coaching agreement is needed to ensure our clients receive quality service, but also to get a commitment from them, which is essential. The agreement sets out the terms and conditions for the successful delivery of the life coaching service and for achieving results. Be Wyse Life Coaching uses a simple but comprehensive agreement as a good foundation for your life coaching adventure.
How long is each life coaching session?
Life coaching sessions can range from 30- 90 minutes. We do not believe in “one size fits all” because the focus is fully addressing the client's needs. The client has the choice to pick a package specif to their needs and availability.
Where will my life coaching sessions take place.
Sessions may be offered in person or via zoom.
Do you guarantee the privacy of my information?
Absolutely! Be Wyse Life Coaching guarantees never to share nor use your personal information without your permission first. We fully understand the value of your trust, and we take every precaution to safeguard it. We will provide you with a detailed coaching contract and privacy statement. We adhere to the ICF code of ethics that governs every client-coach relationship we enter.
At the end of the program, you will be asked to write your feedback and you can choose whether you want this information to stay confidential or not.
