Life Coaching FAQS
What is life coaching?
Life coaching is a process that helps people make the most of their lives. If you’re feeling frustrated or stressed with how your life is currently going, or have aspirations to change your life for the better, then life coaching will help you to make some changes. 98% of the population go through life doing jobs they hate, in relationships that don’t fulfill them, living uninspiring lives. They get to the end of their life, look back and wonder “How on earth did I end up here?!” What happens is most people get sucked into the day to day living and don’t stop for a moment to think about what kind of life they want to be living.
Life coaching is about making sure this doesn’t happen! It’s about stopping now and getting really clear about the kind of life you want to live so when you get to the end of it, you can look back and say “Wow what an amazing life! I wouldn’t change a thing!”
The ultimate purpose of life coaching is to help you start living a more balanced, happy and successful life.
Life coaching can be used for specific issues including:
- Negative thinking patterns
- Stress & anxiety
- Low energy & fatigue
- Lack of motivation & confidence
- No life purpose
- Insufficient happiness & wellbeing
How is life coaching different to therapy or counseling?
Life coaching provides solutions for you to take control of your life and make some changes to enhance your overall wellbeing. Typically, coaching does not involve lengthy discussions of past behaviors, medical conditions, events or circumstances.
Coaching is about empowering your current self to move forward and make the most of life in the present moment. Seeing as most people don’t know what they truly value in life, Zoe helps people to understand themselves better so they can start to identify what things will really make them happy.
Coaching is also about understanding how to use your mind more effectively so that you can achieve your goals and Zoe will work through some techniques to ensure your mind is optimised for success, not failure!
Life coaching is not used to treat medical conditions.
What happens during a life coaching session?
Zoë B will ask you questions about your current life and you will work together to identify what you would like to change. A life coaching session may just involve a discussion, or at times Zoë may take you through some Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques to help you see things from a different perspective and to elicit fast changes. Zoe will ultimately work with you to create the life you want.
You may also be given tasks to complete between sessions to ensure you are taking the appropriate steps to change your life for the better.
Zoë B currently conducts coaching from a beautiful clinic in Double Bay, Sydney and also via skype for international clients or those who prefer to work from the comfort of their own homes.
What is Neuro Linguistic Programming?
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a discipline that utilizes the way we think, communicate and behave in order to improve our quality of life.

NLP techniques are widely used by successful people including Barack Obama, Oprah Winfry, Bill Clinton, Tony Robbins and Russell Brand.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions you need is dependent on a few things such as:
- How clear you are about what you want to change in your life
- How many (if any) blockages there are to overcome to move forward
- How much personal development work you have done in the past
- Your current attitudes and beliefs
- How willing & ready you are to commit to the coaching (including the completion of any tasks set outside of the sessions)

Energy Cleanse FAQS
What is energy?
Energy is not a mystical or strange phenomenon. In fact it’s very ordinary. From a scientific perspective everything in the world is made up of energy or matter. The chair you are sitting on right now is made up of energy and will vibrate at a different frequency depending on how solid it is. The more solid something is, the slower it’s energetic vibrational frequency.
We encounter energy on a daily basis – most of us even sense other people’s energy without even realising it. If you have found yourself saying or thinking to yourself ‘I’ve got a bad vibe about so and so.” then this is you tapping into that person’s energy. An energy cleanse works using this same energy. Zoë B simply works with your own energy to ensure that it is free from blockages to promote a sense of health and wellbeing.
What is an energy cleanse?
Zoë B uses a specific energy cleanse technique known as Reiki. This is an ancient Japanese hands-on healing technique that works with the meridian energy channels.
By re-balancing the flow of energy in the body, and removing energetic blocks that may have cause signs of ill-health, Reiki encourages the body’s natural ability to self-heal.
Reiki is used to enhance the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of an individual and can be used to treat specific symptoms such as:
- Emotional Issues
- General wellbeing
An energy cleanse works specifically on clearing any energetic blockages that may be causing imbalances such as fatigue, stress or insomnia.
What happens during an energy cleanse treatment?
Zoë B currently conducts energy cleanse treatments from a beautiful clinic in Double Bay, Sydney.
You will be invited to lie on a Reiki bed (similar to a massage bed) in your own private treatment room. There is no need for the removal of clothes, it is however preferable that you wear loose, comfortable clothing. Shoes are generally removed for your own comfort.
Zoë B will lightly place her hands on a number of specific Reiki positions along the body. It is normal to feel a deep sense of relaxation during this process, with many Reiki clients even falling asleep.
Where does the energy come from?
Reiki energy does not come from the practitioner herself (Zoë B), it is accessed as a result of an initiation process via an authorized Reiki Master. Zoë has worked with two incredible Reiki Masters and energy teachers over a number of years to be able to now access this energy.
Does Reiki use your own energy?
Yes, in a way it does. Reiki induces a natural state of relaxation that promotes your own self-healing. When you receive Reiki, your brainwave changes from beta (awake state), to a much deeper alpha (relaxed mental state) or theta brain wave (sleep, dream state). Research has shown that these deeper brainwaves assist the body and mind to heal much faster than any other brainwave state.
How long do the energy cleanse treatments take?
Zoë B recommends an initial consultation session which includes 30 minutes of life coaching and a 45 minute energetic cleanse and chakra re-balancing process. Depending on your personal objectives, Zoë B will work with you to determine if further life coaching or energy treatments would be of benefit.
Do I need to do anything after a treatment?
The only thing you are advised to do after a Reiki treatment is to drink lots of water. It is important your body is hydrated to allow the energy to continue to work once the session has finished.
You will feel perfectly well enough to return to work or go about your day as usual after a treatment. Many people experience a particularly good nights sleep after a Reiki treatment as the energy continues to work overnight.
