What is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is a supportive relationship between coach and client. More specifically, coaches helps clients to move in the client’s chosen direction. Coaching helps people having trouble achieving goals by themselves. This is not about therapy, because coaching is not therapy. Rather, coaching could be seen as a helping hand.

For best results, coaches meet regularly with clients. First, they explore what the client wants to achieve. Next, they help the client to set goals and work out action plans. In short, they help their clients to change and move forward. Often this involves identifying obstacles and whatever is getting in the way. Once clients see the progress they are making, they look forward sessions. Especially, they enjoy discovering and creating the future they want.

With support, clients are better able to overcome setbacks. As you can see, coaching looks ahead to the future, rather than back to the past. Coaching goals could be: changing unwanted behaviours, developing skills and finding new directions. Or to better understand yourself and discover your talents. Or to better understand others and improve you relationships. Most important is to overcome whatever is blocking you.

  • Life changes
  • Self-exploration
  • Communication
  • Managing conflict
