Life coaching is not a substitute for either therapy or consulting.
Therapy is meant for those who have significant trauma or certain psychological conditions (clinical depression, anxiety, eating disorders, ADHD, addiction issues etc.) If this is you, your healing must come first — please see a therapist who can help you resolve your trauma or stabilize your mental health. You can proceed with life coaching when a licensed therapist or counselor gives you the go-ahead.
The other difference between therapy and coaching is that therapy focuses on the past while coaching is future-oriented. Coaching focuses less on constantly examining (past) emotions and more on taking action: it is meant for people who are willing to push themselves to experience all that life has in store for them.
Consultants are paid to provide their expertise on subject matter beyond what you as the client know. On the other hand, coaches typically refrain from giving you advice or telling you what to do, since you are the expert on your own life. Instead, as a coach, I work with you to guide you towards your own perfect solutions and insights.
Coaching is meant for individuals who are, for the most part, psychologically well — any major past trauma has been resolved and clinically significant mental health issues have been treated and stabilized. Coaching will take you from this “ok” state to a great state.
As a coach, I do not delve into your past. Instead, I help you create the future that you want by uncovering all the limiting beliefs you have that are preventing you from achieving it.
While I provide insight and clarity, I do not explicitly tell you what to do (like a consultant would). My job is to help you realize what you want for yourself through asking you questions that guide you towards your own perfect solutions.
The program is meant for people who are stuck, confused or tired of life in the rat race and want to find authentic purpose and fulfillment. As your coach, I keep you accountable while you work towards your new dreams and guide you to the answers you already have deep within yourself.
To be coachable, you must be interested in personal growth and learning. You must be open to feedback, hearing new perspectives and being kept accountable for your actions. Even the best coaches in the world can have no effect on you if you’re not coachable.
We all have a story that we tell ourselves about ourselves: our minds act on auto-pilot and constantly replay to us our fears, dreams and expectations about ourselves and life.
E.g, : “I’m smart”, “I’ll never be as great as him”, “I’m bad at physics”, “Exercise is hard” etc
Some of these beliefs are useful, while others were once useful and no longer serve us.
My job is to help you discover and release all these limiting beliefs that are keeping you rigidly tied to a life that you no longer want. That is what I mean by unknowing the false self.
I view life as a continuous process of development that brings us new challenges and insights everyday. As such, three months (or even a lifetime) is not enough to completely unknow all our limiting beliefs and live in a fairy-tale for the rest of our lives. Such a thing may not be possible or even desirable.
Three months is, however, enough time to unknow a lot of our attachment to the false self and internalize that change is possible. You may not fully transform into your ideal self in 3 months, but you will have a clearer idea of what that is and how you can get there.
I am open to working with you beyond 3-months so that you can continue to compound your results and experience even more breakthroughs. You get to decide how much coaching you need.
Our coaching sessions will be held online through web conferencing software like Zoom/Google Meet.
In the first few sessions, I will work with you to explore and refine your primary goal or vision out of coaching. Ideally, we will create a SMART goal (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-Bound).
Every week we will also work on 1-3 SMART focus goals that will bring you closer to your overall primary goal/vision.
We will also spend a part of each session discussing assessments, exercises and ideas that are suitable to your specific needs. I like to coach from the inside-out — I focus on gaining understanding and insight into the root of the problem, rather than merely helping you to implement superficial changes that fail to produce long-lasting change.
Yes! Everything we discuss will remain completely confidential, per the ethics guidelines of the International Coaching Federation.
My prices are internationally competitive as compared to other certified coaches. If you have a challenge or goal that you care deeply about, investing in a coach is well worth it.
As part of your coaching package, you will receive:
- 3-months of coaching towards a new future (minimum commitment)
- Weekly 1-hour video sessions
- Unlimited coaching through email/WhatsApp to address any concerns between sessions
- Built-in accountability to ensure follow-through
- Satisfaction guarantee within the first month of coaching
If you are interested in working with me, book a free call and we shall discuss your needs and the required investment.
I offer a 100% money-back guarantee within the first month of working together. After that, I have a strict no-refund policy. This is why I insist on the (free) discovery call to explore your coaching needs and our potential in working together.
You might start seeing signs of progress in the first session itself! By the end of the 3-month program, you should have made considerable progress towards greater clarity and fulfillment.
