Frequently Asked Questions
What is life coaching?
A coach is a mirror. When you want to know what you look like, you look into a mirror. But there is no clear mirror for the heart and soul, so it is difficult for us to capture a realistic picture of ourselves and our circumstances.
When you work with an experienced coach, you begin to see many of the details of your life that you couldn’t see clearly on your own. Very quickly your coach will help open the eyes of your heart.This will allow you to see yourself and those you interact with in a whole new light. As you grow in your knowledge of yourself, you will be preparing to better face your challenges. Live Inspired Coaching gives you clarity and empowers you to make positive changes.
What will I see when I look into the mirror?
The mirror is also the point of release. Your fears, worries, doubts, scars and attitudes are going to be exposed. The things you do that aren’t contributing to your purpose are going to look starkly out of place. When you look in the mirror, you’ll also begin to see where the hope is in your life.
Living an inspired life means tapping into sources of fresh strength, love and promise that will drive out fear, worries and pain.You’ll be free to see and find the beauty within each moment and the beauty within your entire life.
A life coach helps you see clearly so that YOU can take purposeful steps forward to a rewarding life.

What is the difference between coaching, consulting, and therapy?
Therapy, or counseling, is like the foundation of your home. We all have a past, and sometimes past emotional issues are still an issue in how we function today. Consultants are like the windows and walls of your home. If you wanted to replace your windows, you would call an expert to recommend the best windows for your home. Coaching is a home renovation blueprint; it creates a future vision and an action plan to get there.
Most coaching begins with someone who is already functioning well but really needs to develop some self-awareness and insights to help them maximize their skills and develop new ones. It’s very behavior focused. Whereas in therapy you will delve more deeply into some of the root causes of triggers than in coaching.
Coaches may touch on the past, but only in a very focused way—to gain context for the present and to help their clients identify strategies to move forward.
Do you offer virtual sessions?
Live Inspired coaching clients meet with me virtually through Zoom video conferencing. Schedule a Free Discovery Session to get started.
How to I book a session?
Before we begin working together, I offer a free 45 minute virtual discovery session to see if Live Inspired Coaching will best meet your needs. At the session, we will discuss where you are now, where you want to be, and what’s holding you back.
If it is a good fit, I will give you details about my programs at the session. If not, I will make referrals to other resources.
You can book a free discovery session on-line HERE.
What packages do you offer?
Since I believe that sustained change takes time and committment, I offer customizable packages that range from 3 to 12 months.
