Frequently Asked Questions
What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching is a process where a specially trained coach, works with an individual or group to help them achieve their personal & professional goals.
The focus of life coaching is on the present & the future, rather than on the past & it is based on the belief that everyone has the capacity to create positive change in their lives.
What do Clients Work on in a Life Coaching Session?
A life coach works with clients to identify their goals, strengths, and weaknesses, and helps them develop a plan of action to achieve their objectives. The coach may use a variety of techniques, such as questioning, active listening & goal-setting exercises, to help clients gain clarity, develop a sense of purpose & take action toward their goals.
Do you Need to Know What Your Issue is to Book a Life Coaching Session?
No, you do not necessarily need to know what your specific issue is to book a life coaching session. Many people seek out life coaching because they feel stuck or dissatisfied in their personal or professional lives, but are not sure what the root cause of their issues may be.
What Methodologies do You use in Coaching Sessions?
As an integrative life coach, I use a variety of methodologies & modalities to support my clients in achieving their goals. Some of the techniques and approaches I may use include:
Mindfulness: I may incorporate mindfulness techniques to help clients cultivate present-moment awareness and develop greater self-awareness & self-acceptance.
Cognitive Behavioral Coaching (CBC): This approach focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be preventing clients from achieving their goals.
Metacognitive Approaches: This involves helping clients to become aware of and manage their thinking processes, including their beliefs, attitudes, and assumptions.
Somatic Work: This approach involves using the body as a tool for increasing self-awareness, healing past trauma, and improving overall well-being.
Positive Psychology: This approach focuses on helping clients to identify their strengths, cultivate positive emotions & develop a growth mindset.
By using an integrative approach, I am able to tailor my coaching to the specific needs and goals of each individual client. I believe that each person is unique & that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to coaching. Through using a range of methodologies & modalities, I aim to create a safe and supportive space for my clients to explore their challenges, gain new insights & take action towards their goals.

How do I Know if I Have a Problem with Binge or Emotional Eating?
Binge eating & emotional eating are both types of disordered eating behavior, but they have different characteristics.
Binge eating is characterized by consuming large amounts of food in a short period of time, typically accompanied by a feeling of loss of control over eating. Binge eating often occurs in secrecy and can be followed by feelings of guilt, shame & distress.
Emotional eating, on the other hand, is eating in response to emotional cues or stress, rather than hunger. Emotional eaters may turn to food for comfort, distraction, or to cope with unpleasant feelings such as sadness, anxiety or boredom.
