What is a Life Coach?
A life coach empowers you to set goals and establish accountability for personal and work success. A life coach guides you as you articulate your aspirations, clarify the choices before you, and create action plans to achieve your goals. You set the agenda, and the life coach serves as an objective sounding board to help keep you focused and on track. A life coach helps you break through old barriers and develop new practices so you can reach your desired goals.
How Does Life Coaching Differ from Therapy?
Life coaching is not therapy, although life coaching and therapy can complement each other. Through coaching, you develop strategic actions to help you move forward. Coaching does not attempt to explain behaviors, delve into your past, or identify pathology.
Who Comes to Life Coaching?
My clients may come to coaching because they want to change something in their lives or business and they want help along the way. My clients are committed to living their lives to the fullest.
What Happens in Life Coaching?
Before you can go anywhere, you have to know where you are starting. I will help you clarify what you want and need out of coaching. Following this, regular sessions will start (one to four sessions/month) where you will be asked questions and led through exercises related to your goals. By the end of each session, a homework assignment will be developed to give you a clear sense of what to focus on in preparation for the next session. I will be available for email check-ins in between sessions. If you truly commit to the process, you will find that the real benefits of coaching show up between the sessions.
