Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Coaching?

The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as, “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.”

Coaching is focused on present problems and future concerns. The goal of coaching is to give you the skills, tools, and confidence to get from Point A to Point B.

Is Coaching a Type of Therapy?

Coaching is not therapy. While they overlap in that you learn skills, work towards goals, and work through blockages, there are differences. If it is found through coaching that you need the assistance of a mental health professional, I will work with you to get connected to one.

Therapy is good for:
– Processing and healing trauma.
– If you have severe mood disorders and substance abuse.
– Working through past issues that prevent you from moving forward.

Coaching is good for:
– Working on present and future concerns and issues.
– If you can hold yourself responsible and accountable.
– If you have manageable mental health symptoms and your functioning is not moderately or severely impaired.

Who Hires a Spiritual Coach?

If you want to work through your problem or blocks through a spiritual perspective, then a spiritual coach is the right choice for you! Maybe you’re unsure about your spirituality or want to feel more connected to your spirituality. These are also great fits for hiring a spiritual coach. Any problem or block can be seen from a spiritual perspective.

How Does One Become Spiritual Coach?

All you need is to be drawn to helping others from a spiritual perspective. Coaching is not regulated in the same way counseling is, but that may change in the future. However, I’d recommend getting certified to make sure you have a solid foundation and the knowledge of what it takes to be a coach.
