What is coaching? And how it is different from psychotherapy?
As coaches we work with individuals who want to get better in certain areas of their life. We help you understand, declutter and prioritize the steps you need to take to achieve your goals.
Just like a sports coach; where the players have a goal, a desire and passion and their coach helps them get better at playing, and in exploring future possibilities. Sport coaching is the most commonly known type of coaching, but other forms are based on the same principles. The easiest way to learn something new is by learning from and modeling from someone who is more experienced. Just like kids learn from adults.
Can I get all this information for free from reading books and going online?
Some of it yes. Books and free informations are usually general and they’re missing the sequence. If we could remember and implement all the inspiring information that we read online and on social media, humanity should be enlightened by now. But despite the free available resources it seems like we’re more confused than ever, and depression and anxiety is on the rise.
It is easier to learn anything if you have a teacher or instructor. The value of coaching is in the time it saves you, and it helps you to integrate the knowladge. When it comes to raising your child you don’t have time to learn and search for years for the right information. Every year of their life is a different developmental stage. What works on a 2 year old will not work with a 5-6 year old and so on. You have to keep up with them in order to be efficient. If you have time to do that then it’s great, but most of us don’t. It can happen that you just get one book and it works for you but often that isn’t the case.
What works for others might not resonate with you.The price of coaching is usually a fraction of the cost that you would have to spend on courses, books, events and the time investment needed to gain that level of information.
Specifically, about my coaching, since I work with mothers and not on kids: Often you can get in your own way if you try to do this work alone, which only impedes your effectiveness.
Why do you offer only 1:1 coaching?
Right now this is what I find the most effective, but it does not mean I will not offer online courses in the future as an option.
Although 1:1 coaching isn’t the least expensive when compared to group coaching, or courses,but the success and follow through rate is much higher. You will integrate what you’ve learned and use it, and not just gaining more knowledge.
I value personal connection because it makes learning an emotional, human experience. Also you have accountability, that makes you more likely will show up and follow trough.
It’s like when you have a friend who goes to the GYM with you. When you have someone waiting for you it is less likely that you would skip training. Another example is how many times we buy a book that we never read, or if we read it, in a few days we forget what was in it?
How much time does it take to get results?
In my 1 hour coaching option you have instant understanding and tools to handle your issues in front of you related to parenting. But it is up to you how much of it you will integrate and practice.
In my 4 weeks package you will get deeper understanding, but the depth and speed is in your control; how much time and effort you’re willing to put into it. After each session you will feel calm, optimistic, focused, ready to take action. It is up to you to maintain that energy level and to follow trough.
Again, it is like exercising. You can’t lift weights for 2 hours on one day to avoid going to the gym more often and expect to get results faster. You can’t expect to get in shape and lose weight, if you don’t do the work.
