How Can I Feel Confident as a Coach Before I Start Coaching People?

Still, it was a few more years before I really did it.

I began training individuals over seven years ago, however I had actually wanted to start coaching individuals long before that. I read about training and thought about training and asked a couple of close friends if they believed I would be an excellent coach.

What held me back for so long?

Its the more subtle variations of worry that stop numerous ambitious coaches from ever getting their start, in some cases we acknowledge this, and often we dont. We desire so terribly to assist other people, we actually believe we could be excellent at assisting other individuals, but deep down we feel so insecure, so very un-confident in ourselves and our capabilities, that we begin searching for the trick to success.

We all know the apparent symptoms of worry– a sensation of dread, anxiety, or stress and anxiety. Perhaps even stress attacks or other physical signs that afflict us. But its harder to detect the more subtle variations of fear– a vague resistance, or what seem like “sensible” arguments that a dream is sure to stop working.


I went through all of this myself as a new coach, and in this last and 3rd video (part of my mini-series that responds to questions about my new Intuitive Coaching video course) I speak about what you require to know in order to actually move on and shift from “ambitious” coach to “making-it-happen” coach:

And as society remains in such mayhem at the moment, I really think that the world requires intuitive people working as coaches to help others like never ever before.

Im really delighted about this new course, as a lot of you have actually reached out and let me know that you are oh-so-ready to finally make your imagine being a coach a here-and-now truth.

I started training individuals over 7 years ago, but I had desired to begin training people long prior to that. I read about coaching and believed about training and asked a few close good friends if they believed I would be a great coach. I was running an in-person writing group at the time, and I knew I was already successfully coaching individuals individually, within the group.
