Welcome to a new segment of our show called Ask Marce (AM), where Marce will be answering a question from our Empowering Women For Success Facebook group. Every Wednesday we ask our FB community to comment any questions they have about emotions, relationships, healing or business.

Our commitment is that we’ll either answer your question, send you a resource, point you in the right direction or Marce will answer the question on this show.

Today’s question is from Nina who asked:

How to successfully support coaching clients without getting emotionally attached as they explain what they need your support for?

In this episode I talk about:

(02:30) Recognize what your role as a coach is and what it isn’t

(04:24) Set the intention before your call

(06:12) Practice energetic and emotional cleansing after your call

(06:59) Recognize that not everybody is your client

(09:36) Recap on how to maintain emotional boundaries with coaching clients

(03:09) Our role as a coach from my perspective, is to hold your client in a vision of their highest self. I like to see my client as their future self. When I talk to a client I am not feeling into their pain, I’m acknowledging their pain but I’m not going into their pain because I’m already seeing them as “healed”

(07:32) Not everyone is going to be your client. Just because they’re willing to pay you doesn’t mean that they’re your client, there has to be progress and what I mean by that, is if you're going into a call and you feel like this person is just doing an emotional dump on you every single time. You need to create some space and reflect on whether this is your ideal client.

(08:57) As coaches please recognize your power that you do not just accept any person that wants to work with you, the person must be willing to do the work.
