What are the benefits of coaching?

With each coaching session, you’ll gain more self-awareness, allowing you to act with purpose in all areas of your life. In an organisational setting, coaching can lead to increased levels of motivation, greater empathy, and a culture that engenders collaboration and innovation.

  • 80% of people who receive coaching report increased self confidence

How does one-on-one coaching work?

Before your first session, I offer a free phone consultation – this gives us the chance to chat and assess if we are the right fit for each other. The call lasts from 15 to 20 minutes.

After this initial call, we can set up a time for your first session. I offer both traditional Personalised Coaching online or in-person, as well as Walk and Talk Sessions in South East Melbourne and Bayside. Sessions are ongoing, and I’ll often offer techniques for you to use in between sessions. Sessions are 60 minutes in length.

What should I expect from my coaching session?

Coaching is so powerful because it offers a platform for self-reflection and deeper awareness. Working with me, you’ll have a safe space to express yourself and to discover who you are from a different light.

How can corporate coaching help my organisation?

I provide tailored corporate coaching services that can enhance your work culture, bring out the best of your employees, and give your organisation a competitive advantage. I’m available for speaking, mentoring, and training and offer a health focus, arming your staff with tools and knowledge that can help to enhance wellness, mental health, and resilience

What is the difference between coaching and therapy?

Coaching focuses on the present. Through understanding our behaviours, habits, and perspectives, as well as gaining clarity over our present circumstances, we can shape our experience of reality, and therefore, better shape our future. Coaching is unique in that it is participatory, which is why it often elicits positive results quickly. Coaches often have professional backgrounds.

Therapy is a different yet equally valuable tool for personal growth. However, the focus is on looking at how past experiences have led to our present circumstance and our experience of it. It should always be conducted by a qualified therapist with a medical background.

Can I see you as my doctor as well as my life coach?

While I am a General Practitioner (GP), my coaching practice and medical practice are completely separate. As your coach, I cannot give you medical advice or serve as your GP. Also, please know that I am not accepting coaching clients who are current or past medical patients. If at any point during our time working together in the coaching environment you need medical help, I will always refer you to your own GP, who can diagnose and manage your condition.

How much does coaching cost?

My fee is $250 (excl. GST) per hour.

Are coaching fees tax deductible?

To find out if my fees can be counted as a tax deduction, please consult with your accountant.

Do I get a Medicare or a private health rebate?

No, there is no Medicare or private health rebate.

How do I know if coaching is right for me?

If you’re feeling stuck, trapped, or ready to change but aren’t sure how, I believe you’ll find coaching to be a rewarding experience. Coaching is a practical method for navigating most of life’s challenges and for lasting personal transformation.
