Curious about life coaching?  Is it appropriate for me or for members of my family?

Life coaching often contains the following features:

  • Techniques and simple strategies for helping you to close the gap between where you are now and what you want to achieve
  • Techniques for learning how to deal with negative thoughts and mental blocks
  • A type of support that focuses on achieving positive results and is forward looking
  • A type of support which is holistic, i.e. encourages you to achieve overall well being and to set in balance the different aspects of your life
  • A professional relationship between a coach and an individual whose purpose is to provide assistance in clarifying and achieving meaningful goals and making practical decisions.
  • A type of support suitable for ordinary people as a means of helping you to identify and pursue a vision of who and where you want to be
  • A pragmatic type of support encouraging positive actions, the ability to learn from experience and the capacity to build on success

Whereas people in the past may have turned to a therapist, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists or counselors to assist with overcoming anxiety or stresses, many are now turning to life coaches for the following reasons:

  • Life coaches work in a pragmatic way helping clients to move forward, focusing primarily on how to create a brighter future
  • Life coaches are willing to provide a short series of focused sessions as deemed appropriate
  • Life coaches focus on getting results and on clarifying and achieving the outcomes their clients want
  • Life coaching provides a balanced approach to follow – it is holistic, being concerned with a person’s whole wellbeing and way of life
