Is Coaching for Me?
That depends! Are you ready to authentically show up, confront old beliefs, take action, and bravely bring your big dreams to life? If yes, coaching is for you!
If that sounds too scary, you’re not alone. To keep you safe, your brain protects you from new things. It tells you stories like: “Starting a business seems like a good idea, but it’s better to stay in this steady job to pay the bills.” While that may be true right now, to move forward, you can start taking steps outside of your comfort zone now.
Why Should I Hire a Coach?
Unlike your well-intended friends, a coach is completely committed to your agenda. A coach doesn’t offer solutions like a consultant. Using active listening and powerful questioning, a coach trusts your intuition and provides presence in service of your goals and outcomes.
How Can a Coach Help Me?
Let’s say you want coaching because you’ve been thinking of applying to law school. Before you invest lots of your hard-earned money and time into this dream, you want to make sure it’s right for you.
During our session, I ask you questions and it becomes clearer to you that law school is what you want. You also say you’re worried that it will take precious time away from your teenager. I reflect this concern back to you and ask if you’d like to explore it in service of your goal.

Co-Creating: More Fun & Effective Than Flying Solo
If you’re still thinking: “I can make this happen on my own”, that’s a valid point and you’re probably right. But ask yourself: could you go further and faster with some help? And do you think you’d enjoy the ride more?
Know that you’re not the first person to be coached and you won’t be the last. Coaching is a powerful co-creative process that puts you 100 percent in the driver’s seat. You set the agenda, stated outcomes, and accountability points for our future sessions. I listen actively. I ask questions in service of your stated goals. I’m neutral and committed to your agenda without bias, which is something that family and friends often cannot offer.
“Rachel Drummond has a really wonderful way of supporting me on my journey. She listens well and holds space for what surfaces. As I began my business, working with her enabled me to be very intentional about putting my best foot forward. I enjoyed our sessions and would encourage others that are considering working with Rachel to take the leap!”
“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rachel! She is a beautifully talented soul with a gift for seeking out the true meaning and individual gifts one has to give to the world. Rachel has empowered me to truly seek out what it is I really want in life on a deeper level and to go for it! She is a truly inspiring and caring bright light that I am so grateful to have worked with and continue to see her work make profound changes on others and on the planet as a whole!”
“I work from home and although I love what I do, I was having trouble sticking to a daily schedule and didn’t feel I was getting enough work done. In one session Rachel helped me clarify what my blocks were and why I wasn’t motivated. Rachel’s skill at asking all the right questions and her ability to reframe what I was telling her allowed me to see my situation in a new light. By the end of the session, I had a concrete plan and felt rejuvenated, excited, and ready to tackle what I needed to do to stay on schedule. I can’t recommend her enough!”
How is coaching different than therapy?
How is coaching different consulting?
Consulting is hiring an expert to give you solutions to solve your problems.
Coaching is hiring an expert trained in asking powerful questions to reveal your blind spots and supports the solutions that you come up with to solve your problems in service of your stated goals.
