Contacting a coach for the first time – I know how it feels. You’re putting yourself out there. You are not hiding away, as you may secretly want to do. Therefore it can be daunting. Contacting a coach can seem like a really big deal, you’re admitting that you need help, that perhaps you have a problem.
You feel you are putting yourself up for scrutiny.
You’re going to have to think hard, answer lots of questions, be honest, maybe admit some hard truths.
You’ll have to face the facts and the reality of your situation.
You’ll have to do some work – and you may wonder if you’re ready for it.
Are you ready to share your secrets and dreams with a total stranger?
The thing is, there can be such a relief and release in talking to a stranger. You can be honest. It’s a non-judgemental environment.
You can really let it out and talk about what you want. Maybe you want to make more money, you want to be valued for your skills. You know you could do better and have more.
There’s nothing like getting it all out there and then with the help of your coach, unpicking it, working out what to focus on and what to let go of.
Coaching is about taking action , moving forwards.
The coach’s sole goal is to help you and make things easier for you. You’ll be challenged, you’ll have to do some work – but with support and empathy and cheerleading from the sidelines.
