WHAT IS A LIFE COACH?

I define a Life Coach (also often referred to as Lifestyle Coach) as a professional who helps people step into the boldest, most empowered version of themselves through impactful lifestyle changes by working with clients across three domains of well-being: physical, cognitive, and emotional. They offer guidance and support for their clients in various of areas, including but not limited to:

  • Finding work/life balance

  • Career transition

  • Stress management

  • Improving health

  • Increasing confidence

  • Setting financial goals

  • Buying a home

  • Pursuing an education

  • Improving relationships

  • Launching a business

  • Improving communication skills

Overall, Life Coaches help their clients get clear on what they want out of life, identify obstacles that are preventing them from achieving their goals, and create a customized action plan for success. 

WHAT IS A HEALTH COACH?

I define a Health Coach as a trained professional who is passionate about healthy living in all areas of life and who wants to empower others to make that commitment to healthy living too. I personally focus on simple frameworks that will create maximum results for my clients quickly. But generally speaking, Health Coaches help their clients set goals to improve their health and wellness, create a plan to achieve their goals, address any negative habits or patterns that might prevent them from following through with their plan, and cultivate healthy habits that will help them thrive in life.

WHAT MAKES JASMINE'S LIFESTYLE COACHING DIFFERENT?

In a few words: Mission. Education. Value. Support. Personal Transformation. Results.


Mission

It's my mission to guide women towards their true desires and the life they want to live. I believe when a woman connects to her truth, the best version of her emerges, her soul becomes nourished, and her relationships deepen.


Along her journey with me, my client will be supported and lovingly challenged as I guide her towards the mindset and beliefs that will best fit the lifestyle and goals she wants to achieve.

WHAT SORTS OF PEOPLE HAVE A PERSONAL LIFE OR HEALTH COACH?

From my experience it is any type of person who has the desire to change a part of their life so that they are happier and healthier, and the realization that they will get those results quicker with more focus with the support of a coach.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A COACHING SESSION?

During each session with me, we discuss what has been going well (I ALWAYS start a session with a positive), recap on the actions set and achieved from the previous session, and review any challenges that may arise. Then I will provide new information as part of the customized framework I have set up for you. After, we will practice an experiential exercise or technique that will help you progress between sessions. Lastly and most importantly, we discuss the actions you want to set for yourself to help achieve your next action steps.

HOW LONG ARE THE COACHING SESSIONS?

  • This depends on the coaching package you choose. It would be a 50min session or it could be a 6-hour session. The choice is yours. Click here to learn more about these options and packages I offer.

HOW MANY LIFE OR CAREER COACHING SESSIONS WILL I NEED? HOW LONG WOULD I NEED A COACH?

This depends on what you are wanting to achieve with your coaching. Generally people enlist the help of a personal coach with a life changing goal in mind. In order to achieve this type of goal, I break down the goal into actionable chunks that will be achieved per session to move you closer to your overall goal. For some people this may take as little as a day via my VIP Day [CTA] program, for many this may take as little as 6 sessions and for others it will be more. It is a very personal decision based on your individual goal.

WHERE DOES THE COACHING TAKE PLACE?

My coaching takes place over the phone or video call, depending on your preference.

WHAT WILL I HAVE TO DO AS THE CLIENT?

To get the best from your coaching, you need to have a positive attitude, show up to your sessions, and have laser focus on the action steps we've set after each session. You'll also need to be totally open, trusting, and honest within the coaching relationship. You need to have the time and commitment to complete the actions that we've set after each session so that you move closer to your overall goal.


Bottom line, your level of commitment will directly influence the speed and extent to which your goals will be realized. To help you with this, I will provide boundless motivation, support, and encouragement while I challenge you lovingly within a confidential and non-judgmental environment.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OR RESULTS OF PERSONAL LIFE COACHING?

The benefits of Life Coaching are having someone that is solely dedicated to you and the achievement of your goals. They are non-judgmental, supportive, encouraging and motivating just when you need it. They keep you focused on where you want to be and moving forward in the right direction. They will enable you to get to where you want to be in life, much faster than you could on your own.

HOW IS A COACHING DIFFERENT FROM A THERAPIST, NUTRITIONIST ETC.?

Professions such as therapists, nutritionists, doctors, and dieticians are Masters of Assessment where they assess, diagnose, and then prescribe clients with medicine or a specific plan to resolve the client's issue.


Coaches are Masters of Habit Change. We excel at creating frameworks that will have the biggest impact on clients and enforce habit and lifestyle changes along the way. Coaches are also skilled in shifting habitual thought patterns and beliefs so that they overcome challenges and get to the results quicker than if they did it alone. We honor our client's past but we don't stay there. Our focus is on the client's present and where they want to go next.


For a better understanding of what other practitioners do compared to coaches, here are some definitions of what therapists, nutritionists, and dieticians do:

  • Therapist - A licensed medical professional that evaluates, diagnoses, and treat people with emotional and mental disorders.


  • Nutritionist - Experts in foods and nutrition, they help patients choose the right things to eat, help them plan menus, and advise them on the health effects of certain foods.


  • Dietician - Experts in foods and nutrition but are certified in treating clinical conditions.


  • Doctor: An expert in the science of medicine. As a general definition, this person is trained and licensed to treat sick and injured people.

COULDN’T I REACH MY OWN GOALS WITHOUT HAVING A COACH?

The short answer is that is a question only you can answer. As a coach, I hold the vision that everyone has the ability to accomplish any goals they set for themselves. However, a coach can be a powerful resource who helps you get out of you own way, stand out, and take action to achieve goals that are truly important to you. I help you figure out what you don't know and clue you into elements you may not be able to see. With these factors in mind, hitting your goals becomes inevitable.

WHAT’S THE TRUE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COACH AND A FRIEND?

The difference is a coach is a professional of habit change. As part of my education, I understand how to get on my client's map (the way my client see themselves and the world) to help them see themselves and their world differently to achieve the outcomes they want - one habit change at a time. Friends are amazing and have your best interest at heart (like me) but many friends can be biased in how they help you and lack the training to help you shift habits for personal transformation.
