If you’ve never been involved in private coaching before, you might have some (understandable) questions about what to expect, especially going into your first meeting with a dating coach.
Here is more information to help put your mind at ease, plus some tips for how to get the most out of your dating coaching consultation session with Ann.
Get to Know Ann your Dating Coach
Right after you schedule your first coaching consultation, you’ll get an appointment confirmation with a Zoom link to connect with Ann online, or in person if you’re meeting Ann at her office in Wellington.
During the first meeting with Ann, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about her and ask questions about her training, experience, and qualifications to help you.
Ann wants to make sure you feel comfortable with her before moving forward, and your consultation session is the opportunity for you to make sure it feels like a good fit.
Ann wants to get to know you, too!
If you’re feeling comfortable with Ann, during your first meeting you’ll have the chance to tell them more about what’s been going on for you. Ann will likely ask a few questions to get clarity about what your goals are for your personal growth work around dating, and relationships. Ann will certainly want to know what you’d like to get out of the work, you can rest assured that they will not be asking you probing, personal questions about your history or other life experiences. If you decide, after the first meeting, that it feels like a good fit, then you can dig deeper in your first "official" session with Ann.
You’ll Discuss Your Goals
If you don’t already have specific goals for dating coaching, that is okay. Sometimes it takes a few meetings to get clarity about what you want (and an accurate understanding of what has not been working) in order to develop realistic goals. Your dating coach will be listening to understand what you hope to get out of dating coaching, and what your needs are, so that they can make sure they can be genuinely helpful to you.
You’ll Move Forward
If you feel comfortable with Ann, and what working with her would entail, then you can schedule your first official dating coaching session directly with them at a day, time and location that’s most convenient for you.
