Our session


I strongly believe that each one of us creates his/her own personal story. There are no ready formulas on how to be happy and how to succeed professionally. My role is to have an open conversation with you, to listen carefully, to analyze and to help you to move ahead in a way that best fits your life story.  I will do my best to help you to find and use your hidden potential and shine your best in a motivating and inspiring was so that you truly enjoy what you do.

During our first session we will clarify the need for a follow-up. Please, keep in mind that the “one-shot” session might be sufficient, as you will have after that a clearer picture of the change process that you need to undertake.

We can conduct the coaching session in English, Russian, or Bulgarian.

Book a coaching session or contact me

The “one-shot” coaching is available to anyone in any country, as we can arrange the session online by phone, Zoom, Skype, or other online platforms (e.g. Viber, Facebook chat, WhatsApp).

If this approach sounds right for you, please book a coaching session on the Calendar, or contact me. As I live in Montreal (Canada), please take in to consideration the time difference when booking a session – the hour options given in the Calendar are “Eastern Standard Time” (EST Zone).

A coaching session of 1h 30 min is $120 and you pay after the session if you are satisfied. We can also arrange in advance a short trial talk to explore our “fit”.

What is a career coach?

A career coach is someone who aims to help and empower you to make, meet and exceed your professional goals and be happy in what you do. Professional coaching is about empowerment, inspiration and motivation. It does not offer advice, opinion or judgment.

How long is the coaching session?

The professional coaching session which I offer is typically between 1 hour and 1 hour 30 min.

Where does the coaching take place?

Sessions are usually conducted over the phone, over Skype, Facebook chat, Viber, WhatsApp, or another online option. They can also be arranged as a face to face meeting in a quiet place with no distractions, so that we can focus on the conversation. Personal meetings can be arranged if you live in Montreal or in a city where I plan to visit. Please, keep in mind that you have to be the one to call me and initiate contact.

What happens during a life coaching session?

During the session I will ask you specific questions to learn more, and better understand your unique personal story, future plans, and motivational factors. It is important that we create a sincere atmosphere of sharing during our meeting. You will never be forced to share something you do not want to, or to make any decisions you do not feel comfortable with.

Is there any confidentiality clause?

Professional coaching is a kind of a partnership between us which is set up in a not to be disclosed privacy mode. All sessions will be confidential, allowing you to explore freely your thoughts in a “risk-free” environment and feeling the privacy of the conversation.

Is there any “style of coaching” which I am using?

Coaching for me is not a profession where the coach uses certain “techniques” or “tools” during the session, such as “holistic”, “solution-focused”, “democratic”, “mindfulness” or others. My coaching session is tailor-made and is very unique – targeted to your personality. I use my intuition as well as experience and knowledge as I have been a coach for many years.

How is life coaching different from counseling?

The fundamental difference is that coaching focuses mainly on the future to encourage your professional development and self-improvement, while counseling usually investigates with emotions and issues in the past affecting the present. Coaching does not treat any health-related problems. Neither a counselor nor coach gives advice. They listen to what you say and direct the conversation with further relevant questions.

What is the timing for the coaching session?

As we will talk over the phone or via the Internet, the session(s) can easily fit around our busy schedules, while at the same time mind my busy schedule. The Calendar above shows the available dates and hours for the next 3 months (marked in bold). Please, approach me if your schedule can not fit any of these.

How many life coaching sessions will I need?

My coaching sessions are unique and different from others, because they are designed as “one-shot” and not as a multiple meetings/talks. After the session you should be happy and confident to continue further without my involvement. Nevertheless, it is entirely up to you to decide if you need another session(s) or not.

What is the price for a coaching session?

One coaching session of up to 1 hour 30 minutes cost $120. The offered “pay-what-you-want” model gives you the flexibility to decide how much you can pay based on your life and professional circumstances. You have an option for an initial 10 min free consultation before you decide to subscribe for a session and pay. Please, contact Lidia if you need an initial briefing.

Can I pay a package of several coaching sessions at once?

No, in case you require more sessions, you have to schedule and pay for each one of them separately.

Is there any cancellation policy?

Yes, you can cancel at any time up to 24 hours before the start of your session and you will receive a full refund. If you are not satisfied with the session, your money will be refunded in full.

If you need further information, or if you have any questions, please contact me first before booking an appointment.
