1. What is the difference between a coach, a mentor, a consultant and a therapist?

A mentor is a trusted advisor who wants to bring the mentee up to where he or she is, at the time, by using their learning experience while a coach does not necessarily have to have experience in the same area that the client is in. Therefore, rather than giving specific advice, a coach applies a process, techniques, and principles that are holistic and flexible. 


Consultants are subject matter experts who resolve a problem or implement a solution for you. Coaches help clients figure out their own solutions and teach them techniques to do this effectively. 


Both coaches and therapists want to move their clients forward but their focus is different. Most therapists diagnose and treat dysfunction and abnormality while coaches typically work from a position of strength with the client.

2. Who is coaching for? Why would I want a life coach?

Coaching is for anyone who is looking for self-development. A person would want a life coach for various reasons, such as: overcoming limiting beliefs, developing SMART goals, gaining confidence, accountability and finding motivation.

3. What areas of life can I work with a coach?

You can work whatever area of your life feels most appropriate. According to the Wheel of Life (very common tool used in coaching), there are 8 different areas of life: business/career; finances; health; family & friends; romance; personal growth; fun & recreation.

4. Do I coach groups or one-on-one?

I only coach one-on-one which means I only coach one person at a time.

5. How do I keep myself accountable for confidentiality?

I design a contract for each of my clients to sign where I compromise myself to not disclose any of the information discussed in the coaching sessions.

6. Where are the calls going to be held?

The sessions will be online via Google Meets or Zoom depending on the duration of the call.
