What is the purpose of the complimentary consultation?

The purpose of the complimentary consultation is:

1. To determine whether we are the right chemistry fit

and

2. For me to fully understand what your needs and wants are and assess the situation.

Given that the fit is right and I believe I could help, I will then explain how I work and tell you which program is suitable for you.

 

What takes place in the initial sessions?

 

The purpose of the initia sessions is to get to know each other and build trust and rapport. 

 

The initial evaluation process consists of: 

 

1. the assessment of your executive function strengths and challenges 

2. the determination of your values 

3. the goal-setting process 

4. your coaching readiness

 

The evaluation forms a diagnostic tool, which is the foundation of future coaching.

 

Coaching starts after.


What do the executive function skill scores mean?

Low scores are executive function challenges, and high scores are executive function strengths.

 

In the consultations, we work on them starting from the lowest score first.

 

As each executive skill is linked with the rest, all EFs get a boost once one improves. 

What shall I expect after the initial evaluation sessions?

The purpose of the initial evaluation sessions is to get to know each other and build trust and rapport.

Please note that:

1. The goal-setting and action plan document is a working document that will be refined and tweaked regularly as we forge our collaborative work together. You will be able to add more targets with time. The purpose of the evaluation sessions is not to determine all the targets you will be working towards over the next 6 or 9 months ready and written down. This can be fine-tuned as we go along.

2. If you wish to have a more comprehensive evaluation report with detailed suggestions and recommendations, please get in touch.


Is online coaching appropriate for individuals with dyspraxia?

Yes! In online coaching, we may use Zoom annotate, interactive whiteboards, fun educational games, typing, drawing, and the metaverse, if appropriate. Please let us know your or your child's unique preferences if you choose not to use this option. People with dyspraxia often use touch typing and are encouraged to use technology alongside their gross and fine motor occupational therapy programs as much as possible. It is based on your unique learning preferences whether or not you wish to use technology. It is not counter-indicated for people with dyspraxia to use technology. On the contrary, it is highly recommended that people with dyspraxia leverage this learning tool as much as possible. If, for any reason, you or your child with dyspraxia does not feel confident to use technology, please let us know.

Will it be stressful to have coaching on top of life's commitments?

Coaching is necessary if you want to empower areas of your life. If you or your child are busy, coaching can create a space where you have time to regain clarity, feel empowered and strategise. You or your child set the pace you feel comfortable with. Sessions can be weekly or biweekly so that you can fit them into your existing schedule, and all goals are self-selected. You can add more goals when you are ready. 

What can I expect as a result of coaching?

Coaching is not a quick fix but rather small steps that build small wins, momentum, and behavioural change over time. Everyone has different needs, pace and goals they work towards. The results vary based on your effort before, throughout and after the sessions. Success can be immediate or take longer. The rapport between the coach and the client is what matters the most.

How are the strategy sessions different to the implementation sessions?

The strategy or skill sessions provide new results-based solutions based on neuroscientific and empirical data. You will leave the sessions having new realisations and breakthroughs. You will feel more empowered and inspired to act on your goals.

The implementation or accountability calls help with the actual initiating and implementation of the action plan that we decide. 


How many sessions are required?

To get the best out of coaching, a minimum of 3, 6 or 9 months are recommended with more frequent sessions (weekly or biweekly) until the new habits have been established. Then coaching can fade once there is more independence in the new skillset.
