A mix of personalized emails, weekly reminders, coaching tips, content library and both student coaches and senior coaches, to develop your own solutions and key skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, self-confidence, collaboration, time-management, self-motivation, self-organization, communication, conflict-resolution and many others. 

The key to success is to ask yourself the right questions and get the right insights. We're delivering them to you adapted and personalized.

Why self-coaching?

Simply because you can do it on your own. Self-coaching is about helping yourself to think, learn and make the changes you desire. The self-coaching process guides you to identify the stage you are in now to use appropriate questions to help you move towards your outcome and identify how you want to achieve it. It's empowering, it's personal and it adapts to you.

How does it work?

After you submit the form at the top of this page, you'll get your first email. Using emails and answers from you, the technology guides you through the steps that help you move from clarifying your issue, to revealing the complexities for you to consider as you move towards creating the right outcomes.

What students say

  • I'm doing more work to reach my goals. I think if you are more focused on your goals then you have to do a better job. I manage to exceed my limits to reach my goals, it is satisfying to progress. It helps me to work by focusing on the most important things and stop looking for exit ways. It is good to confront the reality sometimes based on our own capacities. It also helps me to connect more with what I like and work on deep purpose or things that make sense to me. This is helpful to better apprehend weaknesses and work on it.

    — Xavier, Masters Degree

  • I have something to go to at midnight when I am stressed about a project; a low-cost tool I can use to work through an issue and identify a way forward that lets me sleep at night.

    — Carrick, Masters Degree

  • It’s very interesting to get an external point of view on the questions I’m asking myself. Sending emails enables me to answer when I want and to write my answers correctly. I really think I’m speaking to someone. The gain is to help me learn more about myself and my challenges and to create directions for thinking. It makes me happy to receive emails regularly and it’s very self-satisfying to find my answers to the questions that are asked.

    — Elyse, Masters Degree student

  • It helped me in reframing by asking direct questions to uncover my unrealistic expectations, automatic thought and behaviour patterns and ineffective coping strategies to create a safe space to explore limitations, conflicts, and tensions, to seek ways to reignite curiosity and purpose and uncover more effective intrinsic motivators in my attitudes motivation and goals.

    — Dania, Executive MBA

  • The two conversations dealt with the same problem but I felt that I was managing different emotions: the day before I was rather up, with negative feelings and stressed because I was looking for a way to recover the pay they owed me while their announcing my departure, and the conversation allowed me to focus on what I should do first and why. In the morning, I managed the stress due to the phone call rather, and in the end I was able to find some relief before taking action.

    — Melissa, Masters Degree student, digital marketing freelance professional

  • The tool allowed me to remember that I had already managed a large amount of work in my previous years (never so big) and that this year was a new challenge for me. I like to have time to use the tool. Mainly to express my frustrations. Confidence in me, and a great challenge to manage everything successfully.

    — Meryeme, 3rd year student, high school tutor

  • The emails have focused on getting deep into the problem and I feel like I am part of the process. I also enjoy the self-paced nature of it. There is no rush to talk about all the problems within an hour and address them the way there would be in a real-time appointment.

    — Navneet, Masters Degree student

  • The way questions are delivered is cool. We get the insights of a coach to change and self-coach ourselves.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of frequently asked questions. Click on the questions below.

If you have questions or if you need support, send an email to

Does it tell me what to do or give advice?

No, it creates the right questions for you, can give you insights or reframe your issues but it doesn't give advice because not matter what advice you'd be provided, it would be biased by a human experience. The best way to succeed is for you to craft your own way, and we give you the technique to achieve this.

Does machine decide on its own?

No, human subject matter experts supervise the content that the machine provides you and control the quality of the content to keep it professional.

What PocketConfidant does not provide?

PocketConfidant does not provide therapy, counseling or advice, solutions or tips. PocketConfidant doesn’t provide coaching as “mentoring,” or “counseling,” or “advising,” which are based on a narrow subject-matter expertise, but provides you an experience to figure things out on your own and train yourself to become proactive, more focused, confident, creative, and efficient.

Can I talk to a real person?

Yes. Although you are interfacing with an autonomous technology, you can augment your experience with human coaching by booking a session.

What about confidentiality?

Coaching conversations respect an ethical and professional code of privacy and confidentiality. No personal information from your conversation will be shared or sold to a third-party. Hence, conversations are completely private and confidential in order for you to be able to talk freely. You can learn more on our Trust page.

How much time does it take?

When you use the emails, emais are adapting to your pace and reminders are sent two times a week. It can take you 15 min min to answer an email or more based on the content that you want to produce. A human coaching session takes 30 to 60 min. The services are not time consuming and highly value added.
