By Definition

The definition of a Life Coach is one that supports and empowers you to achieve a specific outcome or goal.
Life Coaching is future oriented with a vision created congruent with your values and beliefs.

Coaching – Typically a short term relationship. A coach does not advise but empowers the client to take ownership of the outcome. Client is kept accountable and focused.

Mentoring – Longer term relationship. Mentor can share wisdom based on previous experiences.

Counselling – Normally solves problems connected to the past, the conversation is based in present. Counsellor normally advises.

Therapy – or Psychotherapy generally refers to the treatment of mental or emotional disorders using psychological techniques.

In a coaching relationship the coach has minimal input, the client dictates the pace and direction.
It is the coach’s job to facilitate the client using challenging and thought provoking questions.

  • “I’ve tried several times before, I just can’t do it on my own”
  • “I’ve lost my confidence, I never used to be like this”
  • “I need to be more assertive, people just walk all over me”
  • “It’s time for a change but I don’t know what to do”

The above are real examples I have been able to work through with various clients to achieve a positive outcome.

Results are largely based on the clients commitment and willingness to change.  I will encourage and support you in achieving your goal.


Space for creativity and exploration.
