Prepare for your session

While there’s no specific preparation needed for your 1st session, it would be helpful if you gave some thought to the way you are currently approaching your college work, and to be prepared to share some of your thinking with the coach.

In between sessions, you may decide to practise some of the skills and strategies discussed in the session, making a conscious effort to tweak what you had been doing and experiment with some new strategies and techniques. Sessions can last between 30 - 60 minutes.
