Frequently Asked Questions
What is coaching?
Coaching is a process to help you achieve positive change for yourself. It helps maximise your potential by strategising and supporting how you get there, whilst supporting you in doing so. Through coaching you'll uncover what's holding you back and learn to challenge any limiting thoughts, behaviours or beliefs finding solutions unique to you. A good coach will support you in achieving your goals, whatever they may be.
How is coaching different from other approaches?
Coaching is different from other one to one developmental roles such as therapy, counselling or mentoring. Its core belief is that you already have within you the power to create the change you want to see; you are the expert in your own life. A Coach simply supports you in your realisations and progress. Coaching is present and future focussed. Whilst other approaches can keep you in the past, coaching works from where you are now to where you'd like to be.
How do coaching sessions work?
Coaching sessions each last 50 minutes and are purchased in blocks - eight to begin with, then blocks of six. Initially we will explore what you'd like to focus on for the sessions ahead (if you don't know, that's fine too). Each following session will work towards this, taking into account anything that crops up week to week (hey, it's life, things change).
Where do sessions take place?
Drift & Design are based in London yet work internationally. Sessions can take place over the phone or video call.
For clients in London sessions can be held face to face somewhere convenient for both parties, in a relaxed, calm environment where you feel comfortable having an open conversation. Perhaps this might be a coffee shop, hotel lounge or workspace.
How frequent are the sessions?
Sessions take place ideally once a week, always within 10 days. This is so you have time to digest, reflect and do the work in between (yes there is work, this is your commitment to yourself). We want to maintain momentum and keep you motivated.
Can I book an initial call to find out if this is right for me?
Absolutely. In fact we speak to all interested clients before working together. It needs to be the right fit and you need to feel comfortable to get the most out of sessions.
