Starting Life coaching

What is Life coaching?

Life coaching is a personalized support system that helps individuals clarify goals, develop action plans, and navigate challenges. Coaches employ effective communication and active listening to assist clients in overcoming obstacles, unlocking their potential, and achieving personal growth for a more fulfilling life.

How does Life coaching work?

In life coaching, our coaches utilize diverse therapeutic techniques that are tailored to individuals, including cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, mindfulness, and positive psychology approaches. They also utilize active listening and empathetic communication to provide a supportive space for you to explore and achieve personal goals and overcome challenges, fostering personal growth and clarity.

Is Life coaching conducted in person or online?

Life coaching with our therapists in Annapolis, MD is conducted both in person and virtually via online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Life coaching last?

The number of life coaching sessions someone attends can differ based on the coach and the client's choices. How many sessions are needed and how often they occur often hinges on the client's objectives and the complexity of their concerns. Some clients might opt for a few sessions to tackle particular goals or issues, while others may decide on ongoing coaching sessions to work on personal growth and life enhancement over a more extended period of time. Thriveworks Annapolis therapists work with clients to create goals and potential timelines for treatment.

Need more help deciding?

Think back to when you were young –– what did you want to be when you grew up? Where did you think you’d be living? For most of us, the reality of our lives is different from what we dreamed of as children. That being said, how do you feel about your life? Do you think it could have turned out differently?

Life coaches can help you realize your dreams and live your best life. They’re experts in motivation, setting goals, and finding balance in your life. Every life coach is an enthusiastic professional who wants to help their clients achieve personal transformation. Life coaching focuses on professional and personal development and assisting people in identifying the issues in their lives to move past them.

Coaching can help you make important decisions like changing careers, deciding whether it’s time to buy your first home, or taking a relationship to the next level. Life coaches will be behind you every step of the way to make sure you make progress towards your goals.

Should I Work With a Life Coach?

There are many reasons why someone might want to work with a life coach. Life coaching focuses on helping clients reach their full potential. Coaching can help you set and achieve personal and professional goals — anything from earning a raise at work to deciding on taking a romantic relationship to the next level.

Here are some example situations where a life coach could help:

  • Susan has been passed over for a promotion at work multiple times. A life coach can help her examine her professional life and work toward the promotion she wants.
  • Jack is a recent college graduate who wants to move to a bigger city. He’s not sure if he’s making a reckless decision or if moving would be the best for his future career.
  • Kevin’s partner wants to get married, but Kevin isn’t sure if he’s ready. Working with a life coach can help Kevin examine his life and his relationship from a different perspective.
  • Bethany has always wanted to start a business, but she’s lacking self-confidence and thinks her ideas aren’t going to work. Life coaching can help Bethany find confidence and work towards her dreams.

Working with a life coach gives you a dedicated space to help you assess your wants, needs, goals, and the obstacles you face in life. For many, a hectic life keeps them from stopping and thinking about what they want to achieve. Life coaching provides the space to examine your life and make critical decisions.

Life Coaching: What To Expect

Today’s world can be tough to navigate. There are so many things that can distract you from your goals and keep you from living your best life. That’s where life coaching can help — it’s all about filtering through life’s distractions and transforming your life.

Life coaches can help you make important changes and reach your best self. Life coaching sessions will be different depending on your goals. Generally, working with a life coach can help you:

  • Discover your true priorities
  • Clarify your vision of life
  • Create manageable goals
  • Develop personally and professionally
  • Improve self-image and self-esteem
  • Learn organizational strategies
  • Improve your mental health

Life coaching is incredibly individualized –– sessions for someone who wants to improve their public speaking skills will be very different from someone who wants to change career fields. During your first session, your coach will ask you about your life, your goals, and areas where you want to improve. Each session is private, allowing you to discuss your life in a safe place.

Do you think a life coach could help you accomplish something in your life? Consider calling our office at Thriveworks Counseling in Annapolis, MD, today.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
