Coaching Introductory Questionnaire

Thank you for taking the time to fill out this questionnaire for our session.

The answers you give here help me get a picture of you and what you’re looking to achieve through coaching, so I can really get to know you and so we can make the best out of our time together. We want to get stuck in straight away!

If you can be open and honest with your answers, it will really help us get started on the right foot. Take your time to answer them. Your answers are completely confidential. This is a safe space where you can say anything you need.

My focus as a coach is helping people design and bring to life a vision for their work that aligns to who they are and what they want from life. We can work on your career, your business, your business or career to be, your product or service offerings - but it is important to note that it is a holistic process. Life and work are not separate. In some cases our session might be very focused on the career or business side, in others we may be focusing more on life. It all depends on what you need. You will notice this questionnaire is the same.

I look forward to reading your answers and if you have any questions at all, please send me an email at

I suggest to write your answers in a separate document and pasting them into the form below, so you can take your time to think about them and don’t lose your work.

Your Work - Career or Business
Think as big as you want. The sky’s the limit. Imagine you can do anything.
Time? Money? Support? Health? Commitments? Anything else?
Please include the practical (eg. what, how long) and the emotional (eg. how you’re feeling about it). Please tell me whatever you think is relevant or that comes to mind. This helps me get a picture of your current state.
Even if you've just got thoughts swirling around your head, please put them down.
This can really be anything. What immediately pops into your head?
You only need to include what you’re comfortable with, but this helps me understand the wider context in which coaching would occur. Eg. Do you have a partner/spouse? Kids? Single parent? Caring for an elderly parent? Anything about your living situation, responsibilities etc that might be relevant? Mortgage? Other debt? Moving overseas in a year? Going through a divorce/separation? Health/wellbeing challenges? Big overseas trip planned?
Take a moment to think about this one. Be really honest with yourself.
Try to really imagine it, really feel it.
