Q&A With Alpa
- What is your coaching style?
- Why did you decide to become a coach?
- Why should anyone invest in a coach?
- Is coaching like therapy? Or counselling?
I follow the Life-Fulfilment coaching model which is deep, and powerful. I integrate the Gestalt methodology, mindfulness & meditation, breathing exercises, timeline therapy and a few other powerful techniques from my treasure box into my Coaching.
Coaching is not just a profession for me, it is a calling. My need for Contribution is very high. All extremely successful coaches will have a high need to contribute. Since I was a child I’ve somehow always been most happy sharing insights and helping others. When I look at someone I always see their full potential. I am just wired that way! I completely believe that each of us has within us the power to create a life we love which is true to our highest potential.
My choice of human Resources as a profession, specialising in the Learning & Development vertical, becoming an Art of Living teacher by the age of 24 and many other related decisions are results of my need to contribute. I am most happy doing that. Am grateful to have had hundreds of diverse opportunities to support people.
In my experience in watching so many transformations, I learnt that creating a sustainable change in life involves a complete change in your identity! This doesn’t happen by reading a book or watching a video or attending a conference. It happens through self-awareness of our thoughts, emotions, patterns and behaviours. First you need to understand what really is most important to you and who you really are and then you make a plan to create your new life. You could do this yourself but it can take a lifetime to get to that place. It helps having a coach, who would serve as a catalyst in this process. My most favourite part of coaching is holding space for my clients. I love creating a sacred and safe space for them where they can truly be themselves and explore any and all aspects of themselves without any judgement. I love to see how they are able to connect with their heart-felt dreams and desires, access their unique gifts and talents, gain clarity, clear blocks and limiting beliefs. I love the radiance on their face when they speak about what really matters to them and I love the content fulfilled smile as they go about fulfilling their goals.
A coach is someone who creates a safe and nurturing space for your in the middle of your usual busy life. A space which you know exists, and can come back from time to time to reflect, relax, reset or retune and go back to your life with renewed focus. This space empowers you to take powerful fearlessly in the direction of your biggest goals & dreams. A coach holds a mirror for you without any judgement and with total acceptance and compassion. You may not realise the reason why you are not able to take action on your dreams right now. You may be justifying and making a 100 excuses why it’s not the right time. Once you work with a coach, you realise it was so easy all along. You had these illusionary fears that were stopping you. And you will always wish you had got yourself a coach sooner
A Coach evokes self-discovery and helps you reconnect with yourself.
Coaching is neither like therapy nor counselling. The approach of Coaching is very different from that of Counselling, Therapy or Mentoring. The most striking difference is that Coaching is the only methodology which invokes self-discovery and empowers the client to take action towards their goals. It is focused on taking action.
