Life Coaching FAQs
What is a Professional Life Coach?
A Professional Life Coach is a trusted mentor who can help you identify and overcome what keeps you from reaching your full potential. It is a one-on-one relationship that provides a supportive and non-judgmental space to help you create the life you want. You can find a Life Coach to help you strategize and acquire the tools you need to achieve your goals. It consists of steps to help you identify and reframe your thoughts and attitudes. It can also help you break negative habits, acquire new methods of identification, and take action toward a happier, more satisfying life.
What types of people have Life Coaches?
People from all walks of life work with professional coaches to help attain their goals. Life Coaches work with people in all areas of their lives including relationships, career, finance, health and more. People who get a Life Coach are committed to a more fulfilled life and are willing to do the work needed to get there.
How will Life Coaching help?
The results will vary depending on what brings you to a Life Coach. If you get a Life Coach to help you out professionally, life coaching can help you make your current job more gratifying, gain better focus, and market yourself more effectively. If your reasons are personal, you can find a life coach to help you improve your relationships, resolve ongoing negative behaviors, improve your overall health, and grow spiritually.
What happens in a Life Coaching Session?
Each session is tailored to the client and will vary based on individual needs. In the beginning, we will discuss what you are committed to accomplishing through our work together and we will develop a plan for moving forward. This may include assignments to help direct your progress. We will work together to acknowledge obstacles, explore alternate perspectives and celebrate successes. With the conclusion of each session, we will revisit your goals and evaluate the next steps that are needed to achieve these results.
Do I really need a personal Coach, can't I just do it by myself?
Life coaching can take you above and beyond your own personal limitations. More often than not, people try to achieve their greatest potential, but don’t even realize what stands in their way. A personal coach can offer an unbiased and objective perspective, and can help you identify negative patterns and habits and replace them with more productive ones. Most people experience that they are more efficient when working with a Professional Life Coach and that this provides the opportunity for them to better realize their potential. Life coaching can make your dreams attainable and will give you support and encouragement along the way.
How is Coaching different from Therapy?
While life coaching can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to address psychological issues. While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help clients identify goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills. There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating a better and more satisfying future.
How long do people generally work with a Life Coach?
To experience the effectiveness of a life coaching program, we suggest clients make an initial three-month commitment. At the end of the three months, we will evaluate progress and discuss options for continued coaching.
What is your cancellation policy?
We require a 24 hour notice to cancel all sessions. Please be sure to contact your coach if you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment in order to avoid being charged for the session.
