The Coaching Environment Is a Safe Place in which the Client Can Grow

If my clients are going to take huge risks in order to make significant changes in their lives they need to trust that they have a safe place from which to leave and return. A life coaching relationship is that safe place. One factor critical to a sense of safety is trust.

Good coaches show their clients they are trustworthy by showing up on time for calls/sessions and following through with their promises. We also empower clients with trust by holding them responsible for following through on what they say they want, without judging. My clients learn that I’m on their side, want for them only what they want, and trust them to get it. Trusting my clients’ wants provides them with a safe, encouraging environment from which to go forth and take on the huge life changes they want to make.

As your coach, I lay everything out on the table. You come to the sessions with no surprises. If you’re interested in a free introductory session, but aren’t sure if coaching is for you, click here to read my “Frequently Asked Questions” about life coaching.
