Life Coaching in Amherst, MA—Life Coaches

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” -C.S Lewis

We all have those moments when life hits you in the face. Maybe you’re going for a walk, just finished a book, or are driving to the same 9-5 job you’ve had for 20 years. All of a sudden, the realization comes- There’s more to life than this.

Then maybe those dreams you have start waking up and whispering to you- quit the job, start the business, move across the country, go the gym…

Thriveworks Amherst Life Coaching wants you to listen to those dreams! And we can help you make them a reality. It’s easy to stand in the valley looking up and imagining what life will be like on top of that personal mountain top. Let’s actually start the climb and do it together. Make an appointment today by calling 413-634-4805.

What Is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is relatively new in the counseling world, and a lot of misconceptions still exist around it. It’s similar to counseling, but not quite the same. Both will move you past a mental, emotional, or physical hurdle and bring you to a healthier, happier place. Where you start is the major difference.

A counseling session will heal. A Life Coaching session will conquer maximize.

Imagine an athlete who tears a muscle. She’ll rest, heal, and see a physical therapist. Likewise, counseling heals the mind and soul.

What about the athlete who wants to reach new heights?

She might get a coach who can support her through encouragement and designing workouts. Life coaching is like this- it’s designed to take an already pretty good thing and make it great. You’ll learn new skills and develop ones you didn’t know you had- maximizing your potential. With professional guidance and unconditional support, the possibilities of life coaching are unlimited.

Thriveworks Amherst welcomes any topic in a Life Coaching session. A few of the common ones include:

  • Graduating from college
  • Earning and receiving a promotion
  • Adjusting to change
  • Making a major life transition
  • Embarking on a new career path
  • Opening a family business
  • Feeling happy and comfortable at work

What people need to accomplish their goals is just as diverse as the goals themselves. Some just need a few motivational pep talks. Others need a deep dive into motives, decisions, and who they are. Both qualify as a reason to see a Thriveworks Amherst Life Coach!

What Will a Life Coaching Session Look Like?

The goal of Life Coaching is to help you realize your full potential. It’s unfortunate, but there’s more self-doubt today than ever before. A life coaching session will take apart those doubts and remind you of your strengths, while giving you the tools to use them! There’s a lot of self-reflection and attainable goals in life coaching. Because at the end of the day, you know yourself better than we ever could, and small steps forward is great progress.

The center of any Thriveworks Amherst life coaching session is you. Your goals are what we’re working for. We are your guides, but you’re the one climbing that mountain. So of course, no two sessions will look the same.

The takeaways will look different too, but a few things you can expect are:

  • Unbiased support and guidance from your life coach
  • A better understanding of your goals
  • Techniques and strategies that will help you reach those goals
  • Greater accountability, which will keep you moving forward
  • Encouragement and opportunity to talk about yourself
  • Better self-esteem and confidence
  • Advanced/advancing personal development
  • A clearer path to success and happiness

We aren’t meant to just survive this life. We’re meant to thrive. If you’re not content with where you are in life, or your dreams keep waking you up at night, a Thriveworks Amherst Life Coaching session could be the perfect way for you to grow and achieve new heights. So, call a professional life coach at Thriveworks Amherst today at 413-634-4805.

Kristen Kocot: empathy and integrity in counseling

I've had the privilege of knowing and working with Kristen Kocot, a counselor in Amherst, since January 2019. We met in person after she heard my appearance on SiriusXM's Karen Hunter Show. Since then, we have co-created and presented continuing education material at conferences in Massachusetts. As a traumatic brain injury survivor, I value Kristen's approach to therapy perhaps more than the average person. Her dedication to the whole recovery - immediate release from hospital/clinic, adjustment and acclimation to what life now is, facing the roller coaster that can fuel life post-trauma, pairing the clinical with the personal - sets her apart from many of the therapists I have known. I wholeheartedly recommend Kristen Kocot and sessions with her.
