Life, or personal, coaching is holistic, in that it looks at all of you and doesn’t separate your ambitions from you, from your situation. It enables you to achieve your ambitions, helping you to identify your strengths and weaknesses and establishing what is important for you. It is completely results focused, whether those results are a personal or business goal. It takes you through a transition process, establishing a course of action to enable you to reach those goals.
Life coaching starts from the present, unlike counseling, it doesn’t delve into your past. A life coach doesn’t start from the premise that something needs fixing, it is about enabling you. You are the one who really does all the work, the life coach simply guides through questions and challenges.
What can life coaching help with?
Just some of the issues that can be helped with Life Coaching:
- Weight loss
- Stress management
- Career planning and development
- Time management and motivation
- Anywhere where the person is going through transition: new parents, newly single people, newly retired
- It could also be for people who feel they are stuck in a rut and aren’t really sure how to get out
Sometimes there are multiple challenges someone faces, life coaching can help with single or multiple goals. You don’t even have to have a specific goal, it could just be you want change.
Life coaching is very versatile, it can be done face to face, on the phone or on Skype. Sessions usually last 60 minutes and it is better for you if you can make these regular so that you don’t lose momentum. Face to face is normally carried out in a suitable location.
Everything you say is confidential, I will never discuss you or your coaching with anyone.
