FAQ Coaching

You wonder what coachings is, how it can bring your life and career forward, and how many sessions we recommend? Find your answers below!

What is coaching? And why would I need a coach?

Coaching originated with sport and can be described as the art of improving a person’s performance, yet not telling them what to do.


Together we explore strategies and develop the skills you need for each situation.

You know the starting point and the destination. How will you reach your destination? What route will you take? How long will it take you and exactly when do you plan to arrive?

What’s involved and how does coaching work?

Coaching helps you set clearly defined goals, reflect perceptively on your personal and professional life and gain insights, make decisions and come up with clear strategies for achieving your goals.

That is achieved by asking you a range of questions rather than providing you with all the answers.

What are the benefits of using a coach?

Whilst friends and family may be supportive and helpful, they may have subjective views about what they think you should or shouldn’t do with your life.


As a professional coach, I am able to be objective, both challenging and encouraging you to attain what you want for yourself.


Through skillful questioning and reflection, an experienced coach can help you discover that you already hold many of the answers. This realization will in turn enhance your confidence and self-esteem.

How much does it cost and is it worth it?

Coaching fees vary. It’s important to remember that coaching is a process of personal change and development rather than a one-off fix! It can take at least five sessions to be able to make lasting changes.

We offer both pay-as-you-go coachings at € 180 per 80 min and pro rata coachings and packages called “Bonus-Coaching” of 5 and 10 hours for € 700 (€140/session)  and € 1200 (€ 120/session) respectively.


This greatly reduces the price per session, making it a popular option. It also means our clients have the flexibility to contact us between sessions by phone or email as part of the package, or when something unexpected occurs for which they need help.


Since we respect client confidentiality, we are not able to name clients and their achievements. However, many women have made great changes through coaching.

For example, one client had been unhappy in her job and felt stuck and under valued. Also she struggled as a single mom to care for her ADD child and her needs.

She secured her dream job at a far higher salary, which more than covered her coaching fees. And found more time to be with her child. The client said she would not have had the courage to make the move and change in lifestyle without coaching.

Another client found ways to assert herself in the face of demands from her superior and reached win-win outcomes.

Several have confronted their fears of public speaking; others have learned time management techniques to find a better work-life balance. 

What services do you offer?

We include multiple topics in our coachings, such as improving personal skills, boosting your confidence, finding your pursuit in life and helping you fight specific fears. We offer both group workshops and dedicated 1:1s. This way you can focus on what matters to you and work at your own pace.

As a coach, what are your top 3 tips for how to ace a job interview?

Prepare, prepare, prepare.  Here’s how:

Tip one:

Study the job description and competencies required for the role. Make a list of questions they could ask based on it.

Tip two:

Decide on a really interesting, memorable and relevant ‘story’ that evidences each competency. Decide how to answer each question on your list using the STAR (Situation-Task-Action-Result) approach.

How would women benefit most from a coaching and why?

Women often focus instinctively on meeting the needs of others.

Coaching encourages and enables you to focus on what you want for yourself, too. You may have forgotten what it’s like to think about yourself.

Just one example: If you’ve had a career break and want to return to work, coaching can help you identify your skills and strengths and restore any confidence and self-esteem you may have lost whilst away from the workplace.

What tips would you give women looking to achieve their career or financial goals in the long run?

Set specific goals that are realistic, manageable and achievable.

Break them down into lots of bite-sized tasks.

Put some of these tasks on your to do list each day … and do them.

Give each goal an end date; put the date in your diary and planner and keep it in view.

Find a coach or mentor you trust and feel good with to encourage, motivate, and support you to constantly reach, review, and renew your goals.
