What is Life Coaching?

A rapidly growing profession that includes aspects of psychology, consultation, philosophy, mentoring, spirituality, business leadership, career development, finances, transformation, motivation and personal change.

A Life Coach is similar to a personal fitness trainer, only the goal is for you to live your whole life to the fullest and to the best of your abilities.

Life Coaching focuses on your whole life, because you function at your best when every area of your life is maximized.

How will we do that?

We will form an interactive partnership designed to co-create a vision for your future that better balances the many aspects of your life; that promotes achievement from possibilities; that inspires and motivates you to take the next step; that enhances your performance; that helps you really live the life you want to live.

Such a partnership will help you to stay focused and on track so that you develop more rapidly and produce more satisfying results in your life than you would normally accomplish on your own.

What Results Can I Expect with Coaching?

We cannot guarantee that you will achieve any specific results. You will achieve as much or as little as you put into it. It will require you to invest your own time and energy into achieving your goals. But these are reasonable expectations for your Coaching partnership:
  • You will have a Life Coach who cares deeply about you, your success, your happiness, your fulfillment and balance in life.
  • You will be better able to tackle the barriers and obstacles that get in the way of achieving what you desire.
  • You will develop specific plans for removing those barriers and increasing the supports that motivate you to do your best and to stay focused on your goals.
  • You will discover new alternatives and approaches to consider in achieving your desired outcomes.
  • You will increase your awareness of choices and make better decisions.
  • You will be provided structure, support and feedback to promote greater progress on clarifying your goals and concerns, to form action plans, to make decisions and to achieve your goals.
  • You will be able to find more successful solutions to your challenges and concerns.
  • You will be able to define and achieve your personal and professional goals faster and with more ease than would be possible otherwise.

How long will we work together?

That is really up to you and what you want to accomplish. I do strongly encourage you to make a commitment to stick with coaching for at least 3 months to experience the possible benefits and to firmly establish some positive progress on your goals. Of course, you are completely free to cancel the coaching partnership at any time that it ceases to meet your needs and receive a full refund for any unused services.

    How are Personal Coaching and Therapy alike and Different?

    In both, the client enters into a professional, confidential relationship to make some life changes. Communication is an essential part of this change process. Over time, with regular on-going sessions: change is expected to occur.

    Therapy focuses on healing and correcting past problematic behavior, while Life Coaching is more positive and motivational and focuses on helping the client maximize and get the most quality out of living their Life.

    It is largely a difference of perspective and goals, for example:

      Coaching Model
    • Create and achieve specific goals, values and desires
    • Maximize personal fulfillment and achievement in life
    • Explore possibilities and create a vision for the future and live it
    • Maximize satisfaction and enjoyment in life
    • Based on learning and putting goals into action
    • Focused on discovering one's strengths, talents, abilities and applying own knowledge
    • A co-creative partnership to promote positive change, inspiration, self-discovery, balance and design a better life
      Therapy Model
    • Relieve or eliminate symptoms of pain and suffering
    • Stabilize and restore pre-illness level of functioning
    • Correct the wrongs and hurts of the past to restore the present
    • Minimize and avoid further pain, suffering and problems
    • Based on the medical model of treating an illness
    • Focused on symptoms and a diagnosis of one's problematic behaviors and problems
    • Therapist as the expert and client as the patient trying to resolve issues and restore health
