What to Expect

Coaching with Winslow





What is coaching?

The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the professional society for coaches and defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

What to Expect in Holistic Coaching?

Safe Place

Coaching is a safe connected space for you to explore your deepest desires, what is standing in the way, and how you want to create the extraordinary life you are wanting.

Expert Guidance

Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful, and whole.

About Winslow

I am trained with the Healthcare Coaching Institute, where we work on a model that develops new awareness for the coaches to become an expert in 11 core competencies, learning when to coach and when to mentor or provide other services. For this engagement with you, the primary focus will be coaching, though there may be a situation that arises where I will convey tools or ideas that are more aligned with mentoring where my expertise may serve you.   For example, I can putting on my Health Coaching hat if you want to work on Nutrition and Healthy Habits.  

What can you expect from me?

During our sessions, my complete attention and focus will be on you. I will listen deeply and ask probing questions to learn more about your perspective, beliefs, values, and patterns. All of our conversations will be confidential. I believe that in order to foster a strong coaching partnership, it is important to create a space of safety and trust. 

During our Sessions

I will aim to create a safe space for us to connect full of acceptance and compassion where you can lay everything you want on the table without fear.

I will aim to Serve instead of Please you. This means I am committed to your personal growth and wellbeing more than seeking approval from you so that you can experience massive transformation.

I may turn up the heat. If you are ok with it, and you can tell me anytime if not, then I may play in the space of challenging your growth edge, pushing the boundaries of your comfort zone, and point out limiting perspectives or beliefs. In this way, you get to experience your biggest insights that can be life changing and transformative.

Be authentic - I aim to leave nothing unsaid and to cover up nothing, meaning that I am committed to being open with you about what I see, hear and feel to best serve you and not miss the most valuable moments for expansion. I request the same from you.

I will be attentive to your energy, thoughts, emotions, body language, and needs, and check-in with you often. Please let me know what you are thinking and experiencing that is beneficial for your growth to share instead of holding things inside. This is a safe space and you are becoming extraordinary.

I will see you as creative, resourceful, and whole and help you to see your own brilliance and access your own inner wisdom.

wholistic freedom

What do I expect from you?

  1. Be open and authentic.  If something doesn’t sound right or feel right let me know.  You are the driver.  You get to choose the destination and the path we take to get there.  
  2. Share with me your needs and desires. Don’t hold back.  
  3. Consider the times between our calls, what support you are needing?  Where would be the most helpful thing to focus on for our next meeting? 
  4. I will ask at the beginning of the call what it is you would like to work on today? Be thinking of this in the spaces between calls.  If you are not clear, then don’t worry, we can explore it together. 
  5. Be open to exploring your own mind, body, soul to get to know your own patterns. 
  6. Allow yourself to access your own inner wisdom.  

Health Coaching

If you are interested in receiving health coaching at the end or as part of the session please request it. I can put on my Wellness Guide hat and we can explore this realm. Importantly, we will first explore what you are wanting, why it is important to you now, and what is standing in your way.
