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

Need more help deciding?

When New Year’s Eve comes around, a lot of us have a whole list of resolutions that we’re ready to tackle. “This year is going to be my year!” “I’m finally going to lose that weight.” “I’m actually going to save some money this time around.” We convince ourselves that we’ll stick with and accomplish those goals now that it’s January 1st again. But then… we fall flat.

“I don’t focus on what I’m up against. I focus on my goals and I ignore the rest.”

–Venus Williams

So what can we do to finally stick to and reach our goals? And not just at the beginning of the year, but all of the time? You can work with a life coach. A life coach’s job is to help their clients achieve goals and be successful. These experts can assist people with exploring different career options, finding a new enjoyable activity, or simply keeping themselves accountable for the goals they hope to achieve.

We are happy to tell you that there are life coaches at Thriveworks Bethesda who specialize in helping people to find success and fulfillment. They are devoted to assisting their clients in figuring out what they’re missing and what they could benefit from in life. If you think you could benefit from some goal setting help, or need some direction, consider working with a life coach at Thriveworks Bethesda.

Could I Benefit from Life Coaching?

The truth is that the majority of us could find value from working with a life coach. This doesn’t mean that we necessarily need life coaching, but our lives would certainly benefit. Consider our fictional character Jane. She has built a successful career for herself in marketing. And from the outside looking in, she seems to have it all together. But in reality, she feels unfulfilled in other areas of her life. She longs for a new challenges. Jane decides to work with a life coach, and together they create some goals that help Jane feel personally fulfilled again.

Many times, a life coach helps their client to set and reach goals. But that’s not all that they do. Life coaches can also help their clients to…

  • Find the fulfillment they’re looking for
  • Identify problem areas in their life
  • Explore career opportunities
  • Stay focused at work
  • Discover a new meaning in life

The life coaches at Thriveworks Bethesda can help with all of the items listed above and more. If you are looking for greater success, meaning, or fulfillment out of life, reach out to Thriveworks Bethesda today.

How Will a Life Coach Help Me Succeed?

If you’re interested in working with a life coach, you’re probably wondering what exactly this process might look like. The thing is that every life coaching course isn’t the same—in fact, every path in life coaching differs in nature because we all have our own unique starting point, needs, goals, etc. That said, your life coach will aim to do the following:

  1. Get to know you and what you want out of life coaching.
  2. Help you to come up with a plan for achieving your goals.
  3. Root for you as you make progress each week.
  4. Motivate you when you’re feeling down or uninspired.
  5. Celebrate your new accomplishments with you.

Does this sound like something you need in your life? Reach out to Thriveworks Bethesda today to schedule an appointment with a life coach or hear more.

I couldn't have asked for a better therapist. Nina Zuriff is such a good fit for me. She is very knowledgeable and compassionate. She has really helped me cope with this very hard time I am currently experiencing and makes herself reachable should an emergency arise. I am very happy I selected Nina. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
