Frequenty Asked Questions
What exactly is life coaching?
Life coaching is a powerful tool to help you tap into your own inner wisdom to get clear on exactly what you want and how to achieve it. I am your coach and thinking partner. I will listen carefully, make candid observations, and ask questions to help you clarify your thoughts, see things from a new perspective, and move forward smartly. Unlike your best friend or family member, I have no preconceived notions of “what is good for you,” nor attachments to any particular outcome aside from achieving
whatever you define as your goal.
What sets you apart as a life coach?
Some may find it a bit curious that a decorated intelligence officer would choose to become a life coach. But my 3+ decade
career working in counterterrorism gave me real world experience coaching women to step out of their comfort zones,
take smart risks, and achieve amazing results in a male-dominated profession. My teams were largely comprised of passionate women out to live their purpose and make a difference. I earned my certification as a life coach to help women like you do the same.
What is a discovery call?
I offer all new potential clients a complimentary, no-obligation discovery call for us to get to know each other a bit. You get all your questions answered and learn more about how life-coaching works. I learn a little more about you and your goals to be sure that coaching will deliver the results you deserve.
How is life coaching different than counseling?
Life coaches do not diagnose, treat, or cure any medical or psychological condition. Life coaching is not a substitute for seeing a psychologist or other medical professional. As your life coach, I focus squarely on your future. I never try “to fix” you and always assume that you are a competent adult who knows what you want but might feel a bit “stuck” on how to achieve it. You
already know the answer, but sometimes you just need someone to ask the right question.
How many sessions will I need?
You choose how many sessions you want and how often we meet. The 6-session package is the most popular and the best value. It’s the “sweet spot” where most clients really start to see tangible progress. Some clients like to continue meeting on a regular, but perhaps less frequent, basis, even after they achieve their near-term goals so they can keep growing and have a coach in
their corner as they face new challenges.
What is your cancellation/refund policy?
Please provide, when possible, at least 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your session. At any time, the coach
or the client can choose to opt out of future sessions, and the client will be refunded the balance due from any unused, pre-paid sessions.
Do you offer group sessions?
Yes, I am happy to offer customized group sessions. Please send all inquiries to Freda@ybeulifecoaching.com.
