WHEN SHALL I GO FOR COACHING? TYPICALLY, WHEN YOU FACE A DILEMMA OR A DIFFICULT CHOICE, WHEN YOU CANNOT SOLVE PROBLEM ON YOUR OWN, WHEN YOU NEED AN INDEPENDENT VIEW AND WHEN YOU ARE READY TO TAKE ON THE RESPONSIBILITY OF YOUR OWN CHOICES AND DECISIONS.
Topics I work with usually fall into one of these categories:
Career and Self-fulfillment
You've come to a point when you start detaching your self-concept from results or achievements in your career. This is new to you, and you don't know what's next and how to approach a bigger thing – your self-concept;

The purpose you used to have is no longer working for you, you do not see the "why" in what you do and you think of trying something else somewhere else;

You recognize the burnout symptoms;

You are going through major changes in life and career is changing its meaning.

As a coach, I do not help with the CV-writing, framing the job hunt strategy or giving career advice. I help with all that in a career consultant capacity together with EP Advisory team.
Relationships
Your private life feels lonely, often in the context of social success;

You are unhappy with the ongoing relationship, unsure whether to stay or leave‎.

As a coach, I do not work with kids, teens or parenting topics.
Emigration
You've started to think about moving to a different country, or have already considered several countries, but it's exhausting to make a choice;

You've moved. And it's not quite what you've visualized here. You are trying to find your way in the new place.

As a coach, I do not advise on visas or provide opinions on countries where I lived.
THERE ARE NO IDENTICAL ISSUES, ALBEIT MANY OF THEM MIGHT SEEM FAMILIAR. I WORK WITH EACH PERSON INDIVIDUALLY AS OF HERE AND NOW, AND TREAT MY RETURNING CLIENTS THE SAME WAY – IN THEIR NEW "HERE AND NOW". AS YOU GROW AND CHANGE, THE OLD TOOLKIT MAY NOT BE HELPFUL ANYMORE.

1
Time
One session is one hour (60 minutes).
The first, introductory session, is half-an-hour (30 minutes). We get to know each other and discuss what you would like to work on. After the first session each of us has some time to decide, whether to continue the process.
2
Duration
The so-called standard coaching process usually requires 4 to 6 meetings. It depends, though. Sometimes we may complete it in 3, sometimes even in one session. It depends on many things: the topic, your previous experience with coaching or other self-exploratory work. What matters is your readiness to change. When a client comes for coaching, I assume, he/she wants to change something.
3
Format
We work online – via skype, zoom or messenger apps. In Warsaw we can align on a face to face meeting.
4
Languages
I coach in Russian, Polish or English.

Is this a therapy?
No. Therapy is a long-term process which usually lasts for years. Coaching is a short- to mid-term intervention, focused on more practical issues. In therapy, we work with a patient, while in coaching we work with a client, with an assumption of his/her capacity and potential.
Where can I read the reviews?
I do not place the reviews on purpose for two reasons. One is the client confidentiality. Two is that I cannot see logic in relying on opinions of people whom I do not know. Most of my clients come as referrals. Also, I keep the intro session for us to get to know each other and my working style.
What if I cannot frame the problem?
You can describe the situation or give examples, and we discuss what you decide to work on. It also happens that the inquiry person comes with is not the core reason, but the signal, something that was noticed. And that's fully ok.
What happens on a coaching session?
A coaching session is a dialogue. You come with a topic or inquiry, and we start communicating. My role is to ask questions so that you come up with the answers yourself. I do not advise you and I do not judge anything that you decide to share – my role is to support you and to facilitate your insights.
What is the added value I bring?
I know what to ask. So what? So that you get the answers. Linchpin Coaching is about finding the core – the core of the inquiry and the core of your capacity to build the inner axis and set off on a journey towards your goals. Yourself.
How do I start?
Send me an email telling about your case or topics you would like to work on during the coaching process. I will get back to you with next steps and available time slots.
