Discovery Session

Work with me starts with a complimentary 15-minute Discovery Session so we can try each other on. It will give me an idea of where you are, where you want to be and what’s in your way. Everyone is different so I avoid the one-size-fits-all approach.

Instead, I tailor my suggestions to what I feel will work best for you: either coaching with me, my assistant coaches or something else. Not everyone is ready for coaching or in a position to do so, and that’s ok! I’ll be straight with you about what I think.

Please know it is totally okay to find out at the end of the session that you’re just not ready for taking that next step, whatever that is. Where you are is where you need to be right now, so don’t beat yourself up or feel bad. My policy on the Discovery Session is ZERO obligation.

This is NOT a trial session where we dig into a particular problem. The purpose is to determine if you’re ready for change–which will be clear–and if so, how to proceed. If none of my options are right for you, I’ll give you feasible next steps you can do on your own.

What to prepare for and expect during the call:

  • Why you’re calling; what brought you to seek help
  • How you heard about me
  • I will ask you a few questions about your family, life and relationships to get a general picture of where you are right now
  • At the end I will talk about my style and approach to coaching, as well as the different options available (including my assistant coaches, if appropriate).
  • You may want to take notes, so please bring a notepad and pen.
  • Find a quiet place for the call where you won’t be disturbed

That’s it! The rest is up to you. Be aware that fear can take over and may come up with a number of excuses why you shouldn’t commit to working on yourself. It’s normal. This is tough stuff so you MUST have a desire to do things differently, surrender and take emotional action. If you believe you will get defensive and argue, avoid vulnerability, play the victim or maintain control, this is not the route for you. It would be painful and you would remain in a state of resistance to change.

A note on cancellations: Unexpected things come up, I get it. But often I find that resistance and fear cause people to re-schedule, cancel or (worst of all) not show up. I strongly encourage you to push past the discomfort because it’s an important initial step. But if you’re truly not ready, that’s ok. I just ask that you do me the courtesy of cancelling at least 24 hours in advance so I can free up that time in my schedule.
