Scheduling a video session is simple, just click ‘schedule’ on your client dashboard. Your B-rooted coach’s availability will show automatically, so you can see when they are available and pick a time that works for you. Once confirmed, the session will populate a Google Hangout link in your email or Google Calendar. Click the Google Hangout link at the time of your session and your coach will meet you there! Video sessions last for a total of 60 minutes.
While B-rooted’s founder and lead coach, Jennifer Shillington, does have a masters in counselling, B-rooted coaching sessions are not the same as mental health counselling. A B-rooted coach will not provide medication, write letters for pet support, offer a diagnosis, or focus heavily on a client’s past. Life coaching focussing on goal setting and forward movement, providing clients with encouragement, support and advice. B-rooted Coaching focuses on creating positive habits, navigating through life transitions or ‘ruts’, and creating practical and positive plans for each clients’ future.
Throughout life coaching sessions, your coach will ask questions about what you want to achieve, what your goals are, what areas of life you may be unhappy with and where you may see yourself in the future. These questions help to identify a specific course of positive action that can be taken. A life coach will work alongside you, but it’s up to you to challenge yourself, reflect and commit to working towards positive progress.
Life coaching is often seen as a partnership. A life coach will encourage and support a client as they explore how to make positive progress towards their goals and aspirations. A life coach will also offer support and feedback, and will sometimes set tasks and objectives, in order to help the client stay focused on their goals.
B-rooted Coaching recommends that clients start with a 3 or 6-month commitment, depending on their specific needs and goals. Sessions are recommended at a bi-weekly or monthly frequency, and the sessions can fit within any schedule as B-rooted Coaching sessions operate via online video calling.
B-rooted guarantees complete privacy for every client. B-rooted will never disclose your details or anything that you say within a session, unless first obtaining your permission. At the end of the program, you will be asked to provide feedback, and can choose if the feedback you provide remains confidential or not.
There are many conditions in which life coaching may not be appropriate or the best course of action. In your initial intake sessions, a B-rooted coach will assess whether or not life coaching is the correct avenue for you, and whether or not they are the best coach for you. The B-rooted approach is for all clients and coaches to be fully committed to long-term progress, focussed on core issues rather than quick and easy solutions, which are often only temporary.
Counselling can be incredible beneficially, but it is not the same thing as coaching. Counselling generally focuses more on past events, whereas coaching focuses more on the future. Coaching uses action plans and goal setting to focus on personal wellbeing and future development.
The cost of services is dependent upon the contract that is created after an initial consultation. Consultations are completely free and don’t require any commitment, book a consultation with a B-rooted coach today to discuss your needs and what kind of program will best meet those needs.
