It’s a question our life coach columnist gets often. Read on as she explains what a life coach is, what they do, and the range of ways they can help.
Are you considering hiring a life coach? Do you even know what a life coach does? Are you curious and wondered what it would be like for YOU?
Perhaps the therapist you hired isn’t really clicking with you or you find family and friends aren’t offering the best support or advise.
Here’s what you can expect:
A life coach provides objective guidance and isn’t trying to “fix” anything.
A life coach supports you unconditionally and has you in their best interest.
A life coach is someone that offers you the time and space to really speak about your life and discover deeper awareness and answers to what might be keeping you in fear, doubt, uncertainty or lack of direction, confidence and support in all areas of your life.
A life coach effectively guides the conversation to produce results asking questions that maybe you’ve not considered and leads with questions so you can find clarity and understanding.
Added Bonuses for having a life coach is not only the positive impact that a life coach has on your life it also includes:
on-going source of support
doesn’t have an opinion or emotional investment in your decisions who can give you truly objective guidance
building your confidence and productivity
offering accountability and follow through
moves you forward – from stuck to unstoppable
During the coaching sessions, a life coach will listen and ask questions to identify and discuss the pain points that you may not see because when you’re in “it” sometimes it’s challenging to see for yourself objectively. The coach will further ask the questions to dig deep, find the root, and clear patterns that perhaps you don’t see.
As you can see, working with a life coach is super powerful. Connecting weekly and messaging in between is how I like to support my clients and a program designed specifically to fit your needs depending on what you want to achieve.
I know that how you do one thing is how you do all things so topics may include but not limited to: work, career, health, wellness, financial, relationships, fitness, or life in general to name a few.
You Make It Happen – and being supported on your journey unconditionally allows you to move beyond the obstacles and get busy living the life of your dreams.
