YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT COACHING ANSWERED
WHAT IS COACHING?
ICF (International Coach Federation) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential. Coaching is the art and practice of enabling individuals and groups to move from where they are, to where they want to be. It moves the individuals towards greater competence and the fulfilment they desire.
WHAT IS A LIFE COACH?
A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. Regardless of which type of life coach you are interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential or is a member of the International Coach Federation.
WHAT IS CHRISTIAN COACHING?
Christian coaching takes that concept and moves it into the light of Scripture and frames it in a Christian worldview. Based on the concept that God has a plan for your life and is eager to enable you to live it, Christian coaching facilitates your discovery of that plan and encourages you to live it out.

LORRAINE | FOUNDER | QALLANN MARKETING AGENCY
Samantha is a great listener – she was able to listen to what I was saying and not saying; she could read my tone and body language well even though we had to have all our sessions on Zoom due to the pandemic. She kept time, never cancelled appointments and was able to end the sessions within the given time having covered all that needed to be covered. I felt that I could trust her with my thoughts because of her professionalism. Coaching gave me a new lease of life. It helped me process my transition, and what I have to offer the world. It took me from a place of feeling inadequate and discouraged to a point where I was able to tap into my gifts and experience to start a mentorship program for youth. Coaching helped me clearly define what success and happiness look like for me. I was able to embark on that journey where the prize is clear and worth the attempt even if it takes time.
ELISHIBAH | FOUNDER | THE CLASSROOM OUTSIDE
Samantha has worked with me over the course of several months to help me establish ways of boosting my business brand and sales. She has been very positive and believed in my potential. Through Coaching, I have been able to break steps I needed to take into manageable pieces and seeing realistic and achievable results in the end.
