Life coaching is a professional partnership between the coach and the client that supports the growth of the client, through the use of requests and powerful questions from the coach and commitment and responsibility of the client. Through the process of coaching, clients focus on the skills and actions needed to successfully achieve their desired goals.
Life coaching is used by a growing number psychologists and practitioners to aid clients with transitions in their personal life, and in the process of self-actualization. With roots in executive coaching, which itself drew on techniques developed in management consulting and leadership training, life coaching also draws from a wide variety of disciplines, including sociology, psychology, career counselling, mentoring, and numerous other types of counselling. The coach applies mentoring, values assessment, behaviour modification, behaviour modelling, goal setting, and other techniques in assisting clients.
Some of the reasons to use a life coach:
- I donít know how to find the right job or relationship
- I am successful, but not fulfilled, and I need to find out why
- I am having trouble with work/life balance
- I am not happy with the way I look or feel about myself
- I want my business to be more successful
- I want to be in a successful relationship
- I am wondering what other careers I might enjoy
- I am "stuck" creatively or professionally
- I feel like I am not making the most of my life
- I want to move my professional or personal life to the next level
How does it work?
At each coaching session, we will look at where you are now, where you want to be and explore the most resourceful ways of getting you there. Through the process of listening, questioning, challenging and exploring, we will build a strategy, which is right for you. As your coach I will see you through the whole process. In the scheduled sessions, we will explore how well the action taken has gone and we will set manageable and achievable goals.
I am committed to your goals and will do whatever is necessary to ensure that you keep going and are successful. You will leave coaching with skills to manage change more effectively.
