Two turning points in my health coaching practice

I know what to feels like to get to the end of a health coach training program and feel like you're just not ready to start coaching.

"I don't know enough. I'm not smart enough."

"What if the client asks me questions I can't answer?"

"I'll just wait until I get all my marketing in order, then I'll launch."

"Maybe I'll take on some pro bono clients to get some experience."

Despite having all these doubts and fears as a new coach, I jumped in and took on clients. But honestly, I had no clue what I was doing!

My solution was to get more training. I spent thousands more dollars and years of time educating myself so I could finally feel I like I could offered real value to my clients.

There were two turning points for me:

The first, was when I finally grasped the coach approach. That our job is not to diagnose, fix, treat or prescribe to a client. This understanding, that the client is resourceful, creative, whole and has the answers inside of them, made all the difference in how I showed up as a coach.

The second, was when I got to practice my skills over and over again, listen to coaching demos and hear real coaching in action. And when I received personal feedback on my coaching direct from my mentor.

These two milestones shifted everything for me.

I finally had the confidence to put myself out there and show up as a confident coach.

Does any of this resonate with you?

If so I'd love to have you join my free facebook community. I'm building a space for health coaches to come together and get clarity on their role as coach and then boost their skills and confidence so they can launch, get clients and start coaching.
