Life Coaching

Life coaching is a form of talking therapy where the ultimate goal is self-improvement.

 

An Introduction to Life Coaching

Life coaching evolved from sports coaching and business coaching, on the principles of self-improvement. It stems from an understanding that we often need guidance, motivation and support to help us overcome any obstacles that stand in the way of success.

 

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching aims to provide a framework that facilitates introspection and reflection. This encourages a person to objectively look at their life and determine a structured approach that empowers them to progress towards their goals.

These structuring techniques can provide focus, forward-thinking, action and clarity assessments. When combined, they can show you ‘how’ to achieve a happy, fulfilling and more meaningful life.

 

How is a Life Coach different from a therapist?

Coaching can be therapeutic, but there are some major differences between life coaching and therapy. A coach may look at your present in order to help you create the future that you desire, while a therapist may look at your past to help you manage your present. Coaching tends to be more action-oriented, whereas therapy can be more insight-oriented.

What are the benefits of life coaching?

How can Life Coaching benefit you?

Life coaching helps you move out of your comfort zone. It can help you have the confidence to express your feelings in relationships and fill in the gaps in your skillset. This can move you forward in your career and encourage you to do more of the things that make your heart sing.

Working with a life coach helps you problem-solve the difficult emotions or behavioural patterns that keep you stuck. They give you steps to put into practice that help you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

Life coaching gives you the chance to reflect on all aspects of your life – home, work, relationships, finances, family dynamics, friendships, diet, exercise, health and vitality – and reformulate each of these areas. You may have tried to make changes before but failed to achieve your goals or sustain your progress. Working with a coach helps you set achievable goals with realistic steps.

People who use life coaching find the benefits to be wide-ranging including:

  • Improve mental wellbeing and manage stress
  • Increase energy, vitality and improve happiness
  • Improve communication skills, intuition and increase creativity
  • Find empowerment & motivation and fuel personal development & set goals
  • Relationship building and self-exploration
  • Improve awareness, clarity, reach higher consciousness & find spiritual healing
  • Diet and nutrition advice

What does a typical Life Coaching session look like?

What does a typical Life Coaching session look like?

Appointments can last from 45-60 minutes and can be face-to-face, via phone or Skype. Coaching sessions can be very interactive and direct— where you complete questionnaires to identify goals or have homework to accomplish between sessions. Initially, the life coach will ask you questions that help to determine the areas of your life that need some attention.

You’ll get a chance to discuss and review the emotional blocks, difficulties, confidence issues, lack of skills or behavioural issues that hold you back from naturally progressing with your personal development.

By using a range of coaching styles based on psychological principles such as NLP, your life coach helps you formulate your goals and create an action plan of things to achieve before your next appointment.
