Fantastic question! I love you already because you are taking this so seriously!!
Here are some of my tips on how to get the most out of Blush:
1. State your needs/expectations early and often.
This is one of the *best* pieces of advice I've ever received when working with my own therapist or life coach.
While yes, we are professionals and I believe we are *all* fantastic at our jobs, we can't always anticipate what it is that you are looking for or that you need. So be crystal clear with your expectations and what you'd like to gain from our work together.
If you want to work on time management, make sure your coach knows this. If you are in the mood for some "tough love" and aren't looking for encouragement today, say it. If you're feeling sensitive and really don't want to be pushed further this week, that's okay, just let your coach know.
And if your goals change, we *must* be in the loop in order get into the right gear.
We are here to work with you and for you - and while this is a collaborative relationship - nobody is a mind reader. We welcome and value feedback and direction when it comes to our relationship with you! The best coaching/client relationships start with honesty and trust.
We trust you know what direction is best for you, so trust us with that information!
2. Be consistent
Change doesn't happen overnight, and it becomes harder to maintain when you're scheduling sessions all over the place. Do your best to come up with a reasonable schedule for your coaching and stick to it.
I promise you, some of my best sessions with clients have been when they have "nothing to talk about."
That's when the magic happens. So keep scheduling even if you're unsure of what to expect - I can safely say you'll be pleasantly surprised.
We recommend bi-monthly or weekly coaching for the best results!
3. Commit to three months
I know, I know. If I wanted y'all to stick around for three months, then why don't I make that a requirement when joining Blush?!
Well, I don't like putting restrictions on people and I also don't think it's fair to ask someone to commit to THREE! MONTHS! without even meeting their coach first! That's simply too much to ask, in my opinion.
However, once you're in - I fully recommend the three month rule.
Because 90 days is enough time to create trust, find a rhythm, fully dive into issues, and begin to see some positive change.
This stuff isn't easy. Self-work is the hardest kind of work you can do. So you must be patient with yourself during this process. If in three months you aren't seeing the changes you want to be, talk to us.
I'm always here for questions and can make sure you are getting exactly what you want out of your experience with Blush!
