Frequently Asked Questions
What is an ICF Accredited Coach?
International Coaching Federation developed the first universally accepted Accreditation process which preserves the integrity of coaching through standardized credentials that assist consumers in choosing professional coaches. That’s why I chose to pursue the coaching program through iPEC, an accredited school through the ICF. Because I realize the importance of becoming accredited I am currently a member and am pursuing my hours towards ICF accreditation.
How is Coaching different from Therapy?
While the life coaching I provide can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to address psychological issues. While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help you identify your goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills. There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating what you want now and in the future.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require a 24 hour notice to cancel all sessions. Please be sure to contact me if you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment in order to avoid being charged for the session.
How long do people generally work with a Life Coach?
To experience the effectiveness of a life coaching program, I suggest clients make an initial three-month commitment. At the end of the three months, we will evaluate progress and discuss options for continued coaching.
Money is a little tight right now. Do you offer package deals?
Coaching is an investment in yourself and it does cost money. The most effective way to work with a coach is one to one sessions; however, Image Concepts Coaching does offer small group sessions at a reduced rate and workshops.
Is personal life coaching confidential?
What we discuss will be held in confidence and not shared with others. However, our discussions are not privileged for legal purposes. The privilege of confidentiality that exists for the clergy, therapists and attorneys is not granted to coaching professionals. That said, life coaching is a confidential process, and your personal information will always be protected.
