Life coaching is a service that helps you identify and achieve goals to enhance your life. Unlike therapy, which focuses on healing mental health issues, life coaching enables you to overcome obstacles and make changes that allow you to achieve your full potential.
For example, maybe you feel stuck in your career but don’t know how to make a change. A life coach can help you identify your goals and obstacles, and then support you to develop strategies to make the necessary changes.
A life coach isn’t going to tell you what to do or solve your problems. They talk to you in detail about your hopes, dreams, and goals. They can help you clarify your goals and figure out what’s stopping you from achieving them.
Your life coach can help you strategize your approach to your goals, breaking down your main goal into smaller deliverables, which can help you feel accomplished and motivated. They can also help you stay motivated throughout your journey. If you’re not making the progress you expected, they can help you figure out what to do differently and how to solve your problem. They also provide pep talks and celebrations through the inevitable ups and downs of change.
Your life coach is also your accountability partner. When you set goals, they check in with you for progress updates and to make sure you’re maintaining your momentum.
During your first meeting with a life coach, you have a long conversation. It’s a discovery session for your coach to get to know you and your aspirations. They ask a lot of questions to figure out the best way to help you achieve your goals.
Then, you identify the problem or goal you want to achieve. Your coach gives you assignments and practical work to help you progress. Each coaching session is unique. Not only do you and your coach develop your relationship, but as you work toward your ultimate goal, your approach or strategies may change.
Ideally, life coaching should help you feel encouraged and like you have direction and purpose.
