1. Why did you decide to become a coach?
I cannot think of a single specific reason. While reading a variety of books, both old and new, during my challenging time and researching the human brain, psychology, behavior, and the relationships between people, I felt as though I naturally came to know “coaching” somehow.
I am sure it came from reading books and listening to lectures from other countries, but as soon as I learned that there was such a thing as coaching, I began studying.
I have always been good at motivating people and identifying their strengths, therefore one of the reasons I started coaching was because I thought I could use all of my experiences and my strengths to their fullest potential.
First and foremost, it is very important to pay attention to the person and accept whatever they say without rejecting it.
2. What aspects of coaching do you pay special attention to?
Listening is always the key.
Also, I do not just listen; pay attention to the person’s tone of voice, facial expression, and body language as well. By attending to those details, you can determine whether they are truly fine or not when they use the word “OK.”
Additionally, accepting them is essential if you want them to open up to you. A common complaint among clients is “I don’t like myself this way,” “I’m ashamed of myself this way,” or “I want to be a different person.” Even if the client is reluctant to discuss these difficulties, if the coach is open to them, the client will progressively open up. If the coach is judgmental, patronising, or tells them they are mistaken, they won’t ever open up again.
Even if you do not understand their exact feelings, it is important to be as close to what they are trying to say as possible, as well as to the content and feelings of what they are trying to say.
Let’s assume that your friend say, “I like curry,” and you respond, “Yes, me too.”
But is the curry that your friend has in their mind exactly the same as the curry that you have in your mind?
They are most likely not the same. Thai curry, soup curry, Indian and Japanese curry… spicy or sweet… the list goes on and on.
Similarly, when a client says, for instance, “I’m sad,” I in coaching delve deeply into what kind of sadness it is. What temperature, what color, and what part of the body is experiencing the sadness? I search for areas that the clients themselves are not yet aware of by searching a variety of questions.
In coaching, listening is a crucial ability for discovering the client’s true thoughts. I try to coach in a way that is soft and sensitive to the heart in order to give a secure space where my clients feel safe to talk about whatever they want to talk about.[
3. How can a single coaching session be so effective?
Anyone who comes to us for support with their problems has the solution somewhere in their mind.
Even if they are not aware of the answer, it exists somewhere in their minds. I closely examine the client’s important feelings and work with them to determine what they genuinely want to do.
Furthermore, my coaching is more than just a search for answers; I am generous with advice and information that I find helpful. Iis up to the client to decide whether or not to follow the advice or information I provide. In my opinion, even those who have had difficulty with confidence can achieve a high level of self-confidence by nurturing positive energy within themselves, which makes it easier for them to act.
Of course, the capability to persist is also essential, as what you learn in a single coaching session might not stick with you for the rest of your life. Everybody experiences ups and downs.
My clients frequently come back to coaching when they feel the need to do so after a break. There are no limitations on the amount of coaching sessions you may have with me, and you can decide whether you take only one session or for al month (two sessions).
4. How is the coaching procedure carried out?
In the first session, I will explain about coaching before beginning the session. The day before the coaching session, we will give you a questionnaire that you must complete. Following your appointment, I will send you a questionnaire, to which I kindly request that you respond at least two days prior to the coaching session.
Various questions regarding your current issues, and the problems you hope the coaching will help with.
If you do not want to answer a question or don’t know the answer, simply say “I don’t know” during the session. You do not have to answer every question, and “I don’t know” also means something.
Every answer has a meaning, so I will be paying close attention as we proceed. Based on your responses, I will create a plan for you to take action to achieve your goals.
5. What is the difference between counselling and consulting?

6. How do you integrate card-readings in coaching?
I also provide divination options that combine coaching with tarot, lenormand and oracle cards. This is suitable to people who find coaching challenging yet are interested in fortune telling and want guidance from a fortune-telling perspective.
1. Are there any restrictions on the regularity or term of the contract?
