How Can Young Adults Contact a Toronto Life Coach?
Ivana Pejakovic, B.Sc., MA
Contacting a Toronto life coach is no different from contacting other professionals. Before you book your consultation session it’s up to you to learn about the life coach you think you may want to work with.
Do your research!
When looking for a Toronto life coach you want to know:
1. That she can help you with your problem (e.g., raising self-esteem, picking goals).
2. That you connect with her. You feel like she gets you.
3. That you will feel comfortable with her when talking about personal stuff.
4. That you are not being judged.
Make some calls
If you feel somewhat uncomfortable, you may want to make your initial contact by email. You can either send an email to her directly or submit a question to her through an online contact form. Once you hear back from the life coach, you can call her or ask her to call you at a mutually convenient time.
Before you speak to her on the phone, I suggest you write down a few questions you have and to write down why you decided to contact a Toronto life coach. This way you will ask everything you need and at the same time, you will give the life coach an opportunity to understand your situation. That way the coach can tell you right away if she could can help you.
Sample questions to ask
1. First have your story prepared. Because the life coach will want to know why you are searching for some help. Briefly explain the situation you are in and what you will be expecting from a life coach…don’t worry about listing everything. She will ask you to fill in the gaps if she doesn’t understand something. You only need to explain the essentials. When you’re done with your stuff, you can ask the following questions to help you get an idea about the her life coaching process.
2. What can I expect at the initial (consultation session). How does the process work?
3. What kind of topics will we speak about?
4. Do I have to answer anything I don’t feel comfortable answering?
5. Are the sessions confidential? Do I need parental permission to see you?
6. Can my parents be involved in the coaching process?
7. Do I need to bring anything with me? How can I prepare to make the most of the consultation session.
Remember that every life coach has her method. Interview 3 to 4 coaches and you will see that you prefer one over the others. Don’t give up if the first one doesn’t seem right. There are many life coaches in Toronto and you will find the right one for you.
Best Wishes to You!
