1. How can I decide whether it is coaching or counselling that is the best answer to my problems?
It usually turns out after a few minutes of conversation during the first session which direction the coach and the client should take. This will also serve as a guideline for the subsequent sessions as well.
2. How is a coach's work different from a psychologist's?
Coaching, for the most part, is about the future, the options of solutions. A coach does not spend a lot of time dealing with events, mistakes and worries of the past. Instead they focus on experiences pleasant for their clients, stimulating positive thinking. A psychologist, on the other hand, lays more emphasis on cause and effect relationships.
3. How many coaching sessions are necessary to enable you to achieve your goals?
Each case and each client is different, so it also varies how many sessions can be helpful. We usually suggest five sessons but eight or even more may also become necessary.
4. Is it possible for somebody to come back to us after the sessions are out?
It certainly is, as our main purpose is to keep both your private and business life balanced after the sessions, too. Follow-up monitoring is helpful in doing so.
5. There is a lot of information heard during the consultations that is not to be shared with outsiders. How does the coach treat this?
Mutual confidence develops step by step between the coach and the client during the sessions, but, of course, the coach is supposed to treat all data and information pertaining to the client confidentially from the first moment. In case of references being asked for, we always discuss it with our client.
6. Can any third person be involved in the process?
Yes, what is more, group coaching is also possible. Our range of methods is rather wide, for example, in parent-child conflict management or partnership problems we regularly use tools of mediation as well.
7. What if during the coaching process it becomes clear that besides life coaching, business coaching is also necessary?
It causes no problem at all. This may, in fact, occur either way. It is sometimes difficult to draw a dividing line, but all the instruments are available and can be adapted to our clients’ needs.
