People often come to coaching when in a process of change, or transition; when they recognise a need for clear vision and action, but are unsure where to begin.
A life coach can help you identify what you want in life, and how to get from where you are now to where you want to be. The coach always regards her client as whole, resourceful and capable of change.
Coaching is about creating the future you want, rather than healing past hurts. It starts from where you are now, and looks forward rather than back. Life coaching is not the same as counselling.
A coach brings all the gifts of her own life experience, as well as her training, to the coaching conversation. These might include: intuition, creativity, sensitivity, courage.
What happens during a session?
Life coaching is a talking process. A coach will listen to you and help you to articulate and express your needs and goals. A life coach will support you, motivate you, challenge you and hold you accountable to achieving your vision for yourself. A coach may offer you suggestions, new ideas or action steps, but will not give you advice nor direct the action you take. Instead, she will listen to you and ask you the right questions to help you find your own path, your own truth and your own answers.
People bring a wide range of issues , such as health, work, self-expression, creativity, relationships, family, etc to coaching. To get the most from your coaching, a series of 4 or 5 sessions is recommended.
