A life coach is someone who looks at your present and helps you move into the future. Life coaches are special professionals. We walk with you and focus on you. A life coaching session is basically a conversation between two people who are focused on one person, you, the client. Life coaching is client-centered. We are not solution finder. We are not mentors, therapists, or consultants.
Life coaches help people get out of their own way. We require that you be motivated, at least a little bit, to help yourself. We don’t offer solutions. They come from you. As a life coach, I believe you have everything you need to succeed in life no matter what your challenges. I want to help you build a better life.
If you do get stuck in the past. We will briefly look at it, process it, mobilize and move on. If you need more work on the past, I will refer you to a therapist who can help you deal with your past traumas so that they don’t impact your present and future. It can be done.
That doesn’t mean we never talk about emotions. A life coaching session can get very emotional. It’s okay. I am here to normalize your emotions and let you know that it’s okay to feel them. You are okay as you are. You can do things to make your life better and improve as an individual. We all can. You just need someone on your side to help you make those changes.
That’s where a life coach comes in. We are there to help and offer to hold space for you so you can figure out your next steps.
I hope that helps you determine if life coaching is something you’re interested in. If so, I’d love to hear from you.
