Some questions that come up often
What if I’m not in the ‘Ideal Client’ category?
This isn’t a pre-requesit to working together. It is simply the group I have the most experience with and generally feel the most comfortable working with. However, so long as I feel, upon initial consultation, we will communicate well and I feel I can still deliver a high value service to you, then we can still look to proceed. (If not, I will aim to recommend an alternative coach who will be a better fit for you).
What if I can’t afford a coach?
There are always routes forward. Finding the route that works for you includes fitting in with budget. The key to coaching, from the very beginning, is a willingness to be open and honest. If you can’t do that, no one is going to be able to help you. But if, when we speak, finances are prohibitive, it would still be my intention to point you in a direction that you can move forward with confidence.
Do you offer group coaching?
In short, yes! Sometimes being part of a group can be advantageous over one to one coaching. Having a feeling that you are sharing the experience and building a network of support and encouragement is always going to be helpful. However, it is key that the group in question all have similar goals and compliment each other. But coaching for groups of 4 to 6 people is an option. If this is of interest, please mention it when you get in touch.
Do I have to live or work locally?
No, but it helps. Whilst I have had fantastic levels of success with clients I have never met in person, the logistics are always a little easier. Ultimately, when it comes to fitness, movement is going to be a key part. So, seeing you move is crucial. In person, I can ask you to do something and change angles easily. When it’s virtual you start having to video yourself or we do it digitally, but you then have to move the camera or your position. As a lot of what we will work on will be mindset, frustrations, general approach and feedback, these are inconveniences that we can always work around. But if you live in Glasgow or the Dunbartonshire area and can travel, then it is preferable that we meet in person, at least part of the time.
