Change your life, your mind matters, tricia sampson

  • What is the difference between coaching and counselling?
    Counselling generally aims to solve problems by understanding what happened in the past. Coaching is almost exclusively future-focused. To counsel means to give advice. Coaches do not give advice – instead they use various techniques to facilitate the process of an individual finding the best path for themselves. Over the years I have honed my coaching skills into the designing of this Masterclass. I will teach what I have learnt on my journey, what I practice in my own life, what keeps me focused, happy, loving life on my terms, while I support my nearest and dearest.
  • How is coaching, mentoring and training different?"
    I use all three skills in my Masterclasses and when I speak. I will teach you the tools I use to be my authentic self, focusing on what makes me happy. I will mentor you on this journey sharing my twenty years' experience in developing myself. When I coach you, I listen to understand, question to create curiosity, and guide you on the journey I have designed in my Masterclass - all while having a bit of fun in a safe space created just for you. Can't wait to meet you - call me today. But in case you needed to know, please read below. Training is a structured course that tells individuals what to do in certain circumstances. Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger than the person being mentored, but she or he must have a certain area of expertise. A Life Coach is a professional trained to help someone reach a goal or make a change they are stuck on. It is future focused. A coach is an advisor who helps people make decisions, set and reach goals, or deal with problems.

  • How do I select a Life Coach?
    The following are some points to bear in mind when selecting a coach: ~ A coach need not be an expert in a particular field. But a strong general knowledge on building rapport and maintaining credibility is important. A good coach will have qualifications so ask more about these. ~ Speak informally with your potential coach and see if you feel comfortable with them. For coaching to be effective it is important to feel that your coach is capable of completely listening to you, without judgment. Most coaches offer discounted or free discovery sessions, use these to help you make your decision. ~ Try out a few coaches before you decide who you’d enjoy working with. Coaching is about helping you achieve your potential and exploring what works best for you as part of that process. When you find someone that works well for you, stick with them. ~ If you don’t know where to start looking, ICF (the International Coach Federation) is a global body that offers accreditation based on a combination of training and practical coaching experience. Coaches that attended ICF accredited courses or are ICF certified have at least proven that they are serious about coaching as these involve some investment in terms of both time and money.

  • How long will I need to work with a coach?
    Currently, I coach via a group at my Masterclass. But if you wanted to work with me via one on one coaching, please get in touch so discuss. My Masterclass is designed to give you knowledge, information, tools that you can then go away and practice. With any self-development, practice, practice, practice is the only way to true awareness. My goal is to give you some resources to assist you on your journey - loving life as you go. If you decide to hire a coach, I recommend the following. It depends on where you are in your journey, where you want to go, and how quickly you want to get there. Some clients are able to achieve their goals in as little as one to three months. Most often, clients stay with a coach anywhere from six to eighteen months. After clients realize their first goals, they often identify other areas they want to work on. The coaching relationship continues as long as there is benefit to the client. It is important to remember that many coaching techniques and processes can be learnt and practiced on your own. As counter-intuitive as it may sound, a good coach’s goal should be to reduce your dependency on them as soon as possible – that shows you’re becoming more resourceful and that you’re learning to more effectively deal with new situations as they arise.
  • How does coaching work?
    Coaching is a structured process that takes the client on a journey focusing on a specific goal the client wants to achieve or understand. The coach will ask you a lot of questions, always curious and interested in what it is you bring to the coaching session. The coach will listen looking for contradictions, limiting beliefs, bringing these to your attention. You should leave the Masterclass with homework, and plenty to reflect on, leading you to your goal of getting to know yourself.
  • How do you coach in the Masterclass?
    I use my skills and knowledge to put structure into my Masterclasses. I design a workshop so you are given my knowledge, learn tips and tricks which you can practice to ensure ongoing success. I make a safe space for learning, discussions, exercises, and connection. I actively listen to what you are saying. I listen with clarity and I do not pass judgment. An essential part of the Masterclass process, is either group or one on one discussions. There may also be open conversations across the room with open ended questions. My experience allows me to ask questions in a way that will keep you safe, curious about yourself, and will inspire you to stretch your thinking around your current situation. Each Masterclass is designed with tools that allows you to find your own path moving forward. I do not give you advice or tell you what to do. I may suggest options but it is 100% up to you what you do with the teachings I give you. I recommend you practice what I teach. Knowing something is not the same as implementing it into your life.
  • How much does attending my Masterclass cost and how can I pay?
    Professionally trained, certified coaches charge fees in line with other highly trained professionals. Fees vary from coach to coach, and are based on a variety of factors including whether it’s in-person or virtual. Currently, I charge for a one day Masterclass. I offer a complimentary discovery session if you want to determine if the Masterclass is a good fit for you. Half an hour max. This also helps me to get a better understanding of your current situation and goals. Payment can be made by either automatic payment or internet transfer. The fees are advertised for each Masterclass and the fee is determined by length of the class, and other costs incurred like room bookings, catering, resources, and most importantly my time. Your goals and dreams are free, and so is my knowledge but my services come at a cost.
  • Where are your clients based?
    I currently have clients in New Zealand but open to anyone interested in making improvements in their life from any country. My Masterclass is currently being held in person and very able to conduct a virtual sessions over Skype or MS Teams. If you have another query, all you need to do is ask.
