What Is Life Coaching

ICF ( The International Coach Federation) defines coaching as:

“Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”

One of the key benefits of working with a life coach is the ability to gain a fresh, informed perspective on problems that you’ve long faced. In addition to offering new insight into such challenges, a life coach can help you to zero in on negative patterns that could be standing in the way of your success.

Coaching builds the mental skills needed to support lasting change:

  • mindfulness
  • self-awareness
  • motivation
  • resilience
  • optimism
  • critical thinking
  • stress management
Coaching has means of bridging the gap between your current circumstances and the life you most want to lead.
Along with providing the support and motivation essential for maintaining momentum, coaches can observe when a client is stuck or needs to re-calibrate his goals. As a result, clients often achieve those goals more quickly and efficiently than they would if working on their own.
For a great number of clients, accountability is one of the prime advantages of working with a life coach. Since sessions typically take place on a regular basis over a prolonged period of time, life coaches can ensure that their clients are implementing what is necessary to experience significant change.


What a Life Coach Can Do

Many people seek out a life coach when they struggle in some area of their lives. Often they can’t figure out what exactly bothers them, or what to do about it if they do know.

Pay attention to how you feel. Emotions can be the best clue that something isn’t right here. They indicate that you need to make a change. A life coach can be a powerful catalyst for that change, partnering with you as you work toward creating a better life for yourself.

Be proactive, consider life coach if you:

Feeling stressed and frequently irritated.

It’s normal to feel stress from time to time, but continual stress can be dangerous to your health. A life coach can provide you with awareness, insights, tools, and techniques to identify, manage, and potentially, eliminate the causes of your worries.

Feeling stuck and not where you want to be.

By creating awareness, a Life coach will help you to shift your perspective and find action steps that will move you toward your goal.

Feeling lost and unsure of what you want.

Maybe you sense that something is missing from your life, but you can’t figure out what. Perhaps. you can’t figure out your talents or having troubles putting them to use.  A life coach can help you discover yourself and create a life that’s rewarding and meaningful.

Struggling with self-esteem.

Sometimes the hardest thing is to believe in yourself. Disappointments happen, and our inner exessive critic can be relentless. A life coach will help you to become more aware of the tone of your thoughts and put a positive spin on it. Step by step, a life coach will empower and encourage you to accept your strength and increase your self-satisfaction and self-confidence.

Feeling just plain unhappy.

Happiness is about loving who you are and where you’re at in life. No outside source can give you true happiness.  But a life coach can teach you powerful strategies to develop more positive thoughts and behaviors. Such a shift can have a profound impact on your happiness and quality of life.

How It Works

1. Schedule an Introductory Meeting

The introductory meeting is a 15 min consultation, free of charge. The purpose is to get a clear understanding of your situation and desired outcome and to determine the number of sessions you’ll need. 

Make sure you won’t be disturbed and in a comfortable place to talk (over your phone or a computer), good audio connection is must, the video isn’t necessary. 

2. Choose a Coaching Plan and Sign an Agreement

After the Introductory session, you’ll decide what coaching plan works best for you. We will determine the schedule and sign a Coaching Agreement.

3. Set Yourself Up For Success

To get the most out of your coaching session, take some time to prepare.

Set yourself up for success by following these steps to make the most of your time:

  • 1. Know and nurture. Make yourself a cup of tea, get set up in your most comfortable and cozy spot. You have booked this time to work on the most important thing in your life, YOU. Allow it to be “you time”, make yourself feel supported and comfortable in your own space.
  • 2. Get set. Before the session take a minute to assess your needs….like, do you need to go to the bathroom, does the dog need to go out, do you need to stick a note on the front door for the postman to leave the package on the doorstep, check your internet connection… The more you can do to create a space for you to work uninterrupted, the more in the flow and in the moment you can be during your session. This is deep work that cannot fully happen when you have distractions around you.
  • 3. Prepare on paper. Is there something specific going on that you really want to talk about? Consider putting down some notes about things that are important to you.
  • 4. Allow notes to happen. Get yourself a coaching notebook or a binder with loose paper, so you could make notes as the session unfolds. Coaching sessions go by quickly, and a lot of information comes up. This will become your resource for the time in-between sessions.
  • 5. Keep an open mind and trust the process. There is no set way to get “there”. Allow me to take you to places that you have not considered before. Open yourself up to the possibility that your perspective can be shifted.

By making the decision to work with me, you have made a decision to become more of who you really want to beA coach can catapult you to success, but you need to be prepared to do the work. Following these steps is a great way to prepare, allows you to get clear, and serves as a reminder of why you are doing it in the first place.
