Life Coaching Most Frequently Asked Questions

Below I’ve tried to cover off the most frequently asked questions to help fill any gaps you might have. If you still have unanswered questions after reading this, please do not hesitate to get in touch direct.

Do you offer single Coaching sessions instead of packages?

For best results and value, I encourage you to sign up for a multi-session package. Prolonged, long-lasting change in your life simply does not happen in 1 hour. It requires you to continually re-assess and reflect on the progress you have made, as well as things that are/ are not working for you. A package gives you added motivation as you are accountable for the action items that come up during a coaching session and your progress will be discussed in the next session.

That said, I am fully aware that investing upfront for a package can be daunting if you have not yet worked with that coach. For this reason, I do offer both a Free Discovery Call and I also offer Life Refresh. This is a 90-minute single session where we will dig deep into all aspects of your life to identify key areas for refinement. If after this 90-minute call you decide to continue onto one of my packages, I offer a conversion option where the price you have already paid will be deducted from the price of the package.

How long is a Life Coaching session?

All Life Coaching sessions with Refresh By G which are part of a multi-session package last 1 hour. It is recommended that you only focus on one goal/ area of improvement per session that you would like to work on, so for this reason 1 hour is the standard time frame that all ICF coaches work towards. This gives enough time to identify and discuss your goal, work through an appropriate tool to help with this and create action steps.

Refresh By G does also offer Life Refresh. This is a one-off 90-minute session that delves deep into all aspects of your life to identify key areas for improvement and create an action plan. Following this 90-minute call you will have the option to transition onto a multi-session package where all following calls will be 1 hour.

How will I benefit from Life & Mindset Coaching?

Life & Mindset Coaching is all about helping you to get unstuck and get clarity on what you want your future to look like and how to achieve it. Your coach will use powerful questioning and NLP techniques to help you to uncover what your core needs and priorities are, as well as limiting beliefs that are currently holding you back. Once you have got to to the bottom of this, you can start setting actionable goals which you’re accountable for to help you get there.

I’m not sure if Coaching is for me, how can I find out?

I would recommend first checking out my What is Life Coaching page, and after that book an appointment for a Free 20 minute Discovery Call with me. It’s completely free and there’s no obligation whatsoever to sign up for a Life Coaching package at the end of it, however it might help answer any remaining questions you have.

How do I find out more about Life Coaching?

If you’ve already checked out the What is Life Coaching page, I would recommend going to the International Coaching Federation website to learn more! You can also check out my Life and Mindset blog or follow me on Instagram (@georginamcgarry) for some helpful day to day tips on becoming the best version of you.

Is Life Coaching guaranteed to change me?

Life coaching is designed to support and guide you, however you are the motivator in your own life and only you can choose to change. If you are ready to upgrade your life and put in the hard work then you will absolutely feel the benefits!

Is Life Coaching confidential?

All information (documented or verbal) that a client shares with a coach is bound by the principles of confidentiality set forth in the ICF Code of Ethics. After booking a session, you will also be sent a Terms of Service agreement which you will need to agree to before your first coaching session. This agreement further sets out the confidentiality terms and conditions which Refresh By G abides by.

Is Life Coaching the same as Counselling?

No, life coaching is not a substitute for counselling/ therapy. If you are unsure if you need counselling I would recommend speaking with your Dr.

Likewise, if during a session I feel like the areas we’re talking about would be better suited for a counsellor, I will advise the same during the session.
