Frequently Asked Questions
What is Strategic Intervention Coaching?
Strategic Intervention Coaching is a practical and effective method for achieving positive and lasting change. Strategic Intervention is a project dedicated to extracting the most powerful forms of strategic action and communication from a variety of disciplines, including: Ericksonian Therapy, Strategic Family Therapy, Human Needs Psychology, organizational psychology, neurolinguistics, psychology of influence, strategic studies, traditions of diplomacy & negotiation and others. A Strategic Intervention Coach uses the tools and strategies learned in the training to help you get where you want to go more quickly and easily than you ever thought possible.
What can Coaching do for me/How can coaching help me?
The magnificent power of Coaching can only be understood by experiencing it first hand, because the process is so unique to each individual. Clients may come to Coaching looking for solutions, but what they get to experience is so much more. When you finally get the opportunity to have a deep conversation with someone who is totally and intensely focused solely on you and your needs, in an environment of complete trust, safety, honesty and openness, without having to be concerned about judgement or criticism, you begin to discover the magnitude of your own power and ability. If you have ever craved attention, needed someone to really LISTEN to you, wished you had someone who would support you, encourage you, believe in you, and challenge you to become the absolute best you could be….then Coaching is the answer you’ve been searching for!
What kind of impact will Coaching have on my life?
When you make the decision to invest in Coaching, you do so because you have reached a point where you can no longer stand the pain of remaining stuck where you are. Coaching is the place you come to find something more. Challenging your limiting beliefs, getting clarity about who you are and understanding the barriers that have been holding you back, you begin to gain a new perspective about your life, your language and your story. Your blinders come off, and you begin to see your full potential. You finally get to step into your true identity and take ownership of your power and your life. Your relationships improve because you begin incorporating and sharing what you have learned. You become lighter, happier, and more intentional, and every person you come into contact with becomes affected by you and who you have become. The full impact of Coaching could never really be measured – it’s ripple effect continues far beyond the rest of your own life, because you have created new generational patterns that will empower people for generations to come!
Is Coaching Confidential?
Confidentiality is crucial in the world of Coaching. Clients must feel at ease with their Coach and know that they can comfortably and safely talk about anything that is going on in their life, without fear of repercussion, judgement, criticism or shame. As your Coach, I guarantee that all information will be kept completely confidential, including your identity. You, as the client on the other hand, have the freedom to discuss anything you want about the Coaching. The ONLY time that any information would not be kept confidential would be in the case where a client would be at risk of injury or danger, to themselves or someone else. In those cases, the Coach may be obligated to take appropriate action to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
Is Coaching the same as Therapy or Counselling?
Coaching is it’s own unique process, different in many ways from traditional Therapy or Counselling. Strategic Intervention Coaching is a unique form of communication; one where the client is honoured for their own uniqueness, potential and power. The goal is to empower you, support you, guide you, and enable you to discover the solutions that work best for you – because they come from YOU. Coaching focuses on the present and the future – moving you forward towards your goals, the life that you want to be living and the person you want to become. You will be supported, encouraged, and empowered, but you will also be challenged. Your Coach will believe in you, even when you don’t necessarily believe in yourself. Your Coach knows your potential – their goal is to help you achieve it!
What will Strategic Intervention Coaching require from me?
Coaching requires commitment. It is not some wishy-washy, positive thinking, motivational or inspirational stuff for flaky people. It is very real, very challenging, and very beneficial for those who understand the power of the work. If the Coaching is to be effective, it requires that you take it seriously. Like any other effort that is worthwhile, it requires a commitment of finances, time, energy, focus, and courage. But please don’t be mistaken. The commitment you are making when you decide to hire a professional Coach is not a commitment to the Coach or even to the work. The commitment you are making is to yourself. It means that you have made a firm decision to take a stand for yourself; to invest in yourself and to focus on your future. It says that you are ready to change your standards, to take ownership of your life and to go for what you truly want.
You will be expected to show up on time, every time, without fail. You will be expected to take the work seriously, allow yourself dedicated time and space to be present for each session, and to make every effort to complete the homework assignments which you are given. Your Coach will require you to sign a contract for a minimum of 3 months, to pay your fees upfront according to your agreement, and to show up authentically, openly and energetically for every appointment. A 24 hour advance notice to cancel or postpone will be required.
How can I find out if Strategic Intervention Coaching is right for me?
As a Certified Strategic Intervention Coach, I understand that you may have some uncertainty about whether or not this work would be right for you. It helps to have an opportunity to experience the work first hand in order to be able to determine that for yourself, as well as for the Coach to determine whether or not they are the right fit for you. For this reason, I offer a Complimentary, one-on-one, 1 hour Coaching Consultation Session. Even during this initial conversation, we go deep into what’s going on in your life; we get a chance to talk about the challenges you are facing, the issues you are most concerned about, the people and things you value most and the ways in which Coaching can help you meet your needs.
If you have ever longed for more; if you have ever wondered if there was something else out there for you; if you’re tired of playing small, pretending that you are happy or even if you’ve just been curious about what it would be like to have your own personal Coach, contact me to find out more about what Coaching can do for you. The first call costs you nothing – and unless you have tried it, you really have no idea how it could impact you or your life!
