Life Coaching is Personal Coaching

Coaching is a conversation like no other.

We believe that most people will benefit tremendously from hiring the services of a good life coach. But - you may ask, exactly what is a life coach and what does he or she do?

A life coach's job is to help their clients overcome fear and self-doubt. They help clients set meaningful goals so they can create a life on their terms. As a coach, you have a singular most important goal – to assist the client close the gap between where they are and where they want to be. The key difference here is that a life coach can help the client get from where they are to where they want to be much more rapidly. Through Life Coaching, a person can realise their true potential by following a process of uncovering and then eliminating destructive behavioural and thinking patterns in their life - and doing this in a fully supportive, caring and inspirational environment.

Life Coaching begins with an awareness that every human is born with the ability to be, do or have, whatever they want in life. By the time we become adults, many of us have lost this ability. But eventually, we experience the feeling that our lives are drifting off course and that there must be something better than this. Coaching can take place face to face of over the telephone. It can be used with private individuals or within a business environment. Life Coaches can specialise in particular areas or offer a general service. In essence, Life Coaching is a highly practical and portable skill which can be tailored to suit you and your clients.

Life coaching is a special relationship between a professionally trained coach and a client. Coaches help people from all walks of life and each relationship is unique. In every case, the outcome is that each client is more focused on their objectives and achieves these faster than if they worked alone. As a coach, you assist your clients to gain a fulfilling, successful and stress-free life.

A coach is non-critical and non-judgmental and guides the client to recognition of their own vast personal potential in a way that is far greater than the support of family or friends, whose views may be clouded by their own issues and problems. Coaches are totally committed to each client but maintain an impartiality which allows them to clearly see the way forward and to encourage and monitor progress by stages.

Therapy and counselling generally deal with a single or specific problem by looking to the past. Life coaching takes a more holistic approach. It deals with a whole life situation starting from the present. The coach helps each client to identify what they want in life and suggests strategies and tactics that will take the client from ‘where they are now’ to ‘where they want to be’. This process assists the client’s personal growth. They are no longer alone but have an ally who will work with them to establish better goals, sustain momentum, overcome setbacks and to steer towards success.

Coaching clients are healthy, capable, competent people who are in charge of their own lives. They are open to discovery. Anyone who desires positive growth can benefit from Life Coaching. A job change, a move, choosing a college, even the happily anticipated time of retirement can be a change that creates the question, “what next”? Identifying the next step sounds easy, but our “human being-ness” sometimes creates roadblocks that obscure our alternatives. A qualified Life Coach can be the light that shines on the possibilities. We live in a complex world, and we all have times in our lives when we may feel stuck or confused. Oftentimes the reasons may seem outside our understanding. This doesn’t mean we are broken or need “fixing”. A qualified Life Coach can shine a light on the path which allows the Coach to continue moving forward through and beyond these periods of confusion.

The answer is quite easy; anyone! Anyone can hire a coach if they need to.
