FAQ

Are there professional standards for the coaching industries?
Yes, there is a code of ethics, core competencies, accreditation processes and an International Coach Federation (industry association) that promotes the advancement of coaches. To learn more about this click here: http://www.coachfederation.org/ICF/

How will I know you are the right coach for me?
During our initial conversations and/or discovery session, together we will identify if this is an appropriate fit. So before you say "yes", you will have a sample of what the coaching experience will be like. Until then, click on the MEET TOM page to learn more about myself and my approach in coaching.

How do I get started in the coaching process?
If you are interested in beginning the coaching process, please contact me via email -- tom@energy-coaching.net -- so we can schedule a "Set Your Roadmap" session to further explore the details of the coaching relationship.

What can you expect from me as your coach?
1. Be a partner in bringing out the best, the deepest, and the truest in you
2. Provide safety, encouragement and support; an environment in which you can relax and explore
3. Respect the confidentiality of the agreements we make
4. Expand your view of what is possible and promote discovery of new insights
5. Give you input, straight feedback and operate as a sounding board
6. Listen carefully to what you say and ask questions that increase awareness
7. Be an on-going resource for you in accomplishing your intentions

What if I sign up for this and decide it is not right for me? 
Fees are paid in advance of a monthly (four week) cycle. We ask that you commit to the first four weeks of coaching. If you break the commitment within the first four weeks, we cannot provide a refund, as we have invested time and up front work for you. If within the remaining months of our relationship you participate fully in the calls and the coaching process, you can simply let us know you want to stop. We will completely refund your money on any outstanding pre-paid sessions (after the first four week cycle). To honor the coaching agreement and the coaching process, if you sign up and fail to show up or show up late for your coaching sessions, do not do the follow up work, etc, then we will not refund your money on any outstanding pre-paid sessions.
