What is Life Coaching?
What is a life coach?
Life Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from therapy, mentoring, advice, or counseling. The coaching process addresses specific personal goals or projects, general conditions and transitions in the client's personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be.
how can it help you?
Life Coaching is a designed alliance between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to you, the client. I believe that you know the answers to every question or challenge you may have in your life, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or hidden inside.
what is my role as the coach?
My skills are about knowing the right questions to ask and having the right tools and techniques to empower you to find those answers within yourself. My role is to listen and reflect back the most pertinent information the client shares with me so that they can gain perspective on their deepest desires, what their most challenging obstacles are and to gain clarity in order to take actionable steps to move closer to living the life of their dreams.
what is your role as the client?
You, the client, are the only expert in your entire life who truly knows who you are and what you need. You are the only one who can recognize what is absolutely best for you. I am simply the expert in the coaching process. As your coach, I am here to help you discover what your own personal "best" might be and to encourage you, support you and provide you with external accountability through the coaching relationship.
What can you expect?
Every day we make choices to do or not do many things. These choices may range from profound to trivial and each one has an effect that makes our lives more fulfilling or less fulfilling, more balanced or less balanced, that make our process of living more effective or less effective. Life coaching helps you learn how to make choices that create an effective, balanced and fulfilling life for you.
I will help you connect your head and your heart in a way that transforms your vision for your life into your actual life!
