Find A Coach
The key to finding the right life coach for you is found by asking 3 important questions!
1) What kind of training and Certifications do they have? Not all people who call themselves a life coach are certified by an accredited professional school, nor are they even true coaches for that matter. In fact, most self-proclaimed life coaches are neither. Certification is very important, because life coaching is a profession that requires very specific skills, conduct standards, and a foundation of training which is only taught in qualified schools. Regardless of what some may try to tell you, life experience and other types of experience or training are simply not enough. Would you hire a psychologist who didn’t have formal training?

2) What References can they provide you with? An effective coach will have happy and satisfied clients who, after contracting the services of the coach, have made significant changes in their lives. Note: when asking for references make sure the people have actually been coached by the coach. Some people give references of friends or people that they have worked with in some unrelated manner.
I have references available upon request. In addition, we have testimonials (or links to them) on our personal pages, which are readily available on this site.
3) Are they a Good Match for you? An effective coach for one person may not be a good match for another. Personal chemistry is important. To find a good match, it’s best to speak directly with your potential coach and ask for a sample session. You’ll want to be sure you feel comfortable enough with your coach to develop the deep trust so necessary for breakthrough coaching.
