FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WILL WELL-BEING COACHING MAKE ME HAPPIER?
Yes! There's a good chance it will. We'll work together to discover and practice evidence-based skills and strategies to help you build a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
I HAVE A MENTAL HEALTH DISORDER, IS WELL-BEING COACHING RIGHT FOR ME?
The treatment and management of mental health disorders fall outside the scope of well-being coaching. We recommend discussing your options with a clinical psychologist.
HOW LONG DOES EACH COACHING SESSION TAKE AND HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED IT?
Each session lasts for 50-minutes.
We recommend beginning with one session per week for the first month and then gradually increasing the space between sessions. However, there is no "one-size-fits-all" and this is something you can discuss with your well-being coach.
HOW LONG WILL I NEED WELL-BEING COACHING?
In-line with the wellness model, there is no mandatory end date. We'll monitor your progress together; as long as well-being coaching is working for you, there is no reason not to continue.
