Frequently Asked Questions
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a field that borrows from therapy, consulting and philosophy.
It is a conversations-based service that helps clients imagine a more meaningful and purposeful possibility for themselves and moving them towards that ideal.
Coaching is a journey of self-awareness self- knowledge and reflection encouraging action and motivation.
A coach supports and guides the client towards their goal without letting them give up on themselves.
Coaching encourages the client to look at the past, find meaning in them that links to their present and future. Allowing them to become aware of belief systems that are limiting them and changing them for the client to move forward.
A coach can provide more perspectives, inspiring growth as a joint unit.
How will I, Arthana Nava, do it?
Firstly, everything is confidential and would only break this if I feel your life or another’s life is in danger.
I provide a space for you to be free, you are allowed to feel how you feel and think how you think. Giving you the you time you need to be a bit more curious about yourself
Every Coach works differently and there is no one way of practice that fits all. That’s why I get to know you, I dig a little deeper allowing you to speak through your life.
This gives me, and you, a clearer picture of yourself and allows me to individualise the sessions based on your needs.
With your permission, I give advice and may challenge your values and beliefs.
I am your mirror.
What will the outcome be?
The main benefit would be finding out about yourself a bit more, what makes you unique.
Away from social and cultural influences, who you really are to your core. With this you'll also find out how you feel about life, what is important to you and what you really want.
Below are the recurring benefits I have found:
Accepting your self leads to higher feelings of self-worth and self-esteem, also encourages self-love, putting your self first and being okay with it.
Accepting what you can not control, external situations and people.
Being assertive, place boundaries, tell people what you want and how you feel in a healthy way whilst being open to understanding others.
Responding mindfully, instead of instinctually reacting out of habit. Controlling any negative thoughts or actions.
What should the client do?
Ensure you seek the appropriate mental health help necessary as I am not a qualified mental health professional. You can of course be in coaching dependent on the risks.
I expect my clients to be fully engaged and motivated.
Be vulnerable, don’t hide yourself, don’t cover your flaws or weaknesses, admit to your mistakes.
No change is going to happen in your comfort zone.
Most importantly just turn up, for yourself.
