Q: What is coaching and how can it help me?

A: Coaching is a collaborative process in which a coach works with an individual or group to facilitate personal and professional growth, improve performance, and enhance well-being. Coaching can help you clarify your goals, identify obstacles, develop new skills and strategies, and stay accountable for taking action towards your desired outcomes.


Q: How is coaching different from therapy or counselling?

A: While therapy and counselling focus on resolving past issues and healing emotional wounds, coaching is future-oriented and action-driven. Coaching assumes that you are capable of making positive changes in your life and seeks to support you in achieving your goals and aspirations. At CreativeLC, coaching sessions are held via Zoom, which allows for convenient and flexible access from anywhere in the world.


Q: What can I expect in a coaching session?

A: In a typical 45-60 minute coaching session, you and your coach will:

  • Check in on your progress and mindset since the last session
  • Set the agenda based on your current goals
  • Explore your vision and motivation around your topic
  • Brainstorm strategies and possibilities
  • Evaluate the options and create an action plan
  • Generate accountability around specific steps before the next session
  • Close with reflections and key insights

The session will involve powerful questions from your coach to draw out your inner wisdom, as well as sharing perspectives and accountability to push you forward. You'll gain more clarity on your direction, Motivation around next steps, and an objective outside view of your situation. Consistency with sessions is key for maximum progress and transformation.

A: The number of coaching sessions will depend on your individual needs and goals. Some clients may achieve their desired outcomes in just a few sessions, while others may benefit from ongoing support over several months.

Cancellations: If you need to cancel a session, please provide at least 24 hours advance notice. If less than 24 hours notice is given, you will be charged for the scheduled session.

  • Reschedule the session within the same week as the original appointment

If either of the above rescheduling conditions are not met, the session will be forfeited.


Q: How do I know if coaching is right for me?

A: Coaching is a powerful tool for personal and professional development. Anyone can benefit from coaching.

Q: What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a type of alternative therapy that uses hypnosis to help people make positive changes in their lives. During hypnosis, you enter a deeply relaxed state that allows you to tap into your subconscious mind and reshape unhelpful thoughts, behaviours, or habits.


Q: What can hypnotherapy help with? 

Hypnotherapy can be used to help with a variety of issues including anxiety, phobias, addiction, chronic pain management, weight loss, improving sleep, boosting confidence and motivation, and more. The relaxed hypnotic state allows the therapist to suggested positive changes to your subconscious mind.


Q: What happens during a hypnotherapy session? 

The hypnotherapist will use a variety of techniques based on your case.


The therapist will guide you into a deeply relaxed, trance-like state. While in this state, they will use suggestion techniques to reprogram unhelpful subconscious patterns or behaviours. You remain in full control and cannot be made to do anything against your will. Most people feel very calm and focused during hypnosis.


Anchoring involves creating an association between a specific stimulus (like a touch or sound) and a desired mental state or resourceful feeling. During hypnosis, the therapist has the client vividly experience a positive mindset, then provides a distinct anchor stimulus at the peak moment. This links the anchor to that state in the client's neurology. Later, recreating that same anchor stimulus can rapidly re-induce that empowering feeling on demand, acting as a potent self-help tool outside of the therapy sessions.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques):

EFT is a mind-body technique that combines tapping on acupressure points with voicing acceptance statements. While focusing on a negative emotion or issue, the client taps on a sequence of points on the face, hands, and torso. This is thought to help disrupt the energy and emotional intensity around that pattern. EFT can provide relief from stress, fears, cravings and pain when used alongside other therapies like hypnotherapy. Clients can also learn to self-apply EFT tapping as a personal self-help tool.


Q: Is hypnotherapy safe? 

Yes, hypnotherapy is considered very safe when performed by a qualified professional. You cannot get "stuck" in a hypnotic trance. Hypnosis is simply an enhanced state of focused attention.


Q: Can anyone be hypnotised? 

While most people can be hypnotised, some are more suggestible than others. As long as you are willing, can focus, and follow instructions, hypnosis should work for you. Children can also be hypnotised effectively.


Q: How many sessions are typically needed? 

The number of sessions varies based on your specific goals. Some issues can be addressed in 1-2 sessions, while others may require 4-6 sessions or more. Your hypnotherapist will discuss expectations after your initial consultation.


Q: Are the effects of hypnotherapy permanent? 

A: Hypnotherapy can produce long-lasting changes by reprogramming the subconscious mind. However, results do require reinforcement and commitment from the client. Some clients benefit from periodic "boost" sessions.
