What is a coach?

The Giving Coach

By Julia Firestone

A coach is not a therapist

A coach is not a mentor

A coach cannot wave a magic wand

And make you feel much better.


A coach does not give answers,

But asks questions all the time.

A coach cannot force doing,

Only you can take the time.


A coach is just a midwife,

A midwife for the soul.

I hear you and I see you

And I’m here to help you grow.


If you still have some questions

Of the purpose or your need,

Fear not my friend of spending cash,

The first session is free.
