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 Athens, GA 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 Athens therapists work with clients to create goals and potential timelines for treatment.

Need more help deciding?

Between the ever increasing demands placed on us by work, family and the pressures of making ends meet, it often seems as if our modern lives are filled with challenges. The particular nature of those trials changes from person to person, but whether you are a writer, an au pair, an architect or a small business owner, there are common difficulties we all share in common. The most common of these have to do with careers and relationships, and with managing anxiety, levels of stress, and not letting self-doubt inhibit us. There are a great many people who struggle their whole lives with these familiar and burdensome issues, but it is very hard to overcome them without any help.

The role of a professional life coach is not only to help you overcome these hurdles, but also to help you become the person you really wish to be.

How Life Coaching Can Help You

Whether you want to work on an existing romantic relationship or to become better at public speaking; or whether you want to develop your career and don’t know how—a life coach offers dedicated support to help you achieve your desires. One of the key aspects of life coaching is that the trained professional will facilitate your assessment of what is most vital to you and why. This is no simple matter since the desires which underlie our wishes and ambitions determine so much of who we are. A life coach can help you:

  • Ascertain what is most important to you and why
  • Understand the most beneficial ways to manage those priorities
  • Cultivate patterns of behavior to make sure you achieve your goals
  • Do away with the obstacles that are slowing your development.

Thus, a life coach helps you to remove the distance that exists between who you are and who you wish to be.

Accessible Life Coaching

If you are unsatisfied, unhappy, or just looking for joy and greater fulfillment, a life coach can give you the tools to be your best self. So call us to book an appointment or for more information when you’re ready.
