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

Need more help deciding?

The vast majority finally understand the importance of exercise and proper nutrition—for if (or when) we don’t fulfill these needs, we risk harming our physical health. And we experience negative effects outright: we gain weight, we become sick more often, our blood pressure goes up. In fact, to ensure we stay on top of our physical health and don’t suffer from these effects, some of us even work with professionals like nutritionists and personal trainers.

While this is great news for our health, the truth is that we don’t always give the same care and attention to the remaining pieces of the puzzle. We often put our mental health on the backburner, undermine the importance of finding meaning in life, and fail to set or accomplish the goals that will help us become our very best selves.

“Goals. There’s no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in them. And there’s no telling what will happen when you act upon them.” –Jim Rohn

Fortunately, the life coaches at Thriveworks South Charlotte can help you give these areas of your life the attention they need and deserve. They can guide you on this journey toward a happier, healthier, and more successful you—whether that means keeping you accountable for your goals, assisting you in deciding which career path you want to pursue, or ensuring you’re taking care of your emotional health. In any which case, the life coaches at Thriveworks South Charlotte can offer you direction.

What Does Life Coaching Mean?

Life coaching plays an instrumental role in mental health care, as it helps individuals make positive changes, set and reach healthy goals, and ultimately thrive in life. Like therapy or counseling, life coaching involves meeting with a mental health professional and working with them to achieve your best self. For a better understanding, here’s a short list of facts about the life coaches at Thriveworks South Charlotte:

  1. They are determined to help each client reach personal and professional goals.
  2. They tailor their sessions to fit each client’s unique goals and lifestyle.
  3. They are not counselors: life coaching is a different mental health service.
  4. They are highly skilled and experienced and truly care about your progress.

If you think you could benefit from collaborating with a mental health professional, a life coach at Thriveworks South Charlotte is ready and eager to meet you. They will use their impressive skillset, training, experience, and caring nature to help you succeed.

How Can Life Coaching Help Me?

Here at Thriveworks, we firmly believe that every person out there can find value in working with a mental health professional—be it a life coach or a counselor. That said, if you’re looking for some assistance regarding goal-setting, meaning and fulfillment, forward motion, or any other related areas of concern, a life coach is the right person for the job. And while their approach to care often depends on the provider, as well as your goals, a life coach can ultimately help you…

  • Determine any potential problems with your current lifestyle.
  • Come up with healthy goals that benefit you personally and/or professionally.
  • Find the inspiration and motivation needed to accomplish these goals.
  • Feel confident in yourself and your abilities.
  • Grow into the very best you possible.

Remember: your life coach’s primary job is to help you live an overall healthier, happier, and more fulfilling life—of which depends heavily on the goals that you communicate to them.

It is obvious from working with Dr. Patricia Krikorian that counseling is not a career for her as much as it is a calling. She is compassionate, professional, non-judgmental, and supportive. Her ability to get to the root of the problem and provide helpful and personal counseling solutions is a testament to her years of counseling experience. I highly recommend Dr. Krikorian!!

I just wanted to say that Dr. Patricia Krikorian is a gem! She was my college professor and taught my Counseling class. She required us to be students of excellence because she is a woman of excellence. She passionately cares about helping anyone who needs guidance on how to navigate through life difficulties. She has many years of experience in her craft and takes pride in helping many throughout her career. She is by no means a novice and is well-respected by me and others.
