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

Need more help deciding?

Katie recently graduated from college and landed her first job at a well-known company. She is excited for the opportunity and looks forward to moving to a new city. Once she gets there and starts, she realizes how relaxed the management style is. Because she has a hard time keeping herself accountable, she starts to work random hours and often feels rushed to get her work done on time. It results in losing touch with several of her friends and it starts to take a mental toll. She knows that if she just woke up a little earlier and gave herself a structured schedule, then she would have more time to do what she wants when she isn’t at work. Because of this, she decides to meet with a life coach to discuss what changes she can make.

Sebastian and his partner have decided to move into their first apartment together. He couldn’t be happier about this decision and looks forward to how much more their bond will grow. On top of this big move, Sebastian is starting a new job as a manager. He’s preparing himself for the added stress that comes with the job and is nervous about how he will be able to handle it. He knows that he wants to make sure that he doesn’t take out his added frustration on his partner whom he now lives with. He decides that he may benefit from meeting with a life coach to get advice on how to handle his new job and navigate through his new living situation.

More and more people like Katie and Sebastian are working with life coaches to navigate new obstacles and challenges that we are presented in life. Life coaches are also great for helping you achieve the goals you have in mind. Thriveworks Edison Therapy offers life coaching to anyone seeking the guidance they need to get the most out of life. Ready to start your journey? Call our office to schedule your appointment.

What Is Life Coaching All About?  

Consider this: If your life could be transformed from what it is now, what would you make different? Would you get a new job? Travel? Start a family? Life coaches can help you figure out what these goals are and give you the empowerment you need to actually go for it.

When identifying your goals, it is important to acknowledge what challenges and roadblocks you have that are prohibiting you from reaching them. Our life coaches have the experience and skillset to help you figure out what these issues are and provide you with a strategy to move forward.

Your life coach will want to gauge your level of satisfaction in different areas of your life. These different categories can include:

  • Money
  • Career
  • Social life
  • Family
  • Living Environment
  • Romantic Relationships
  • Personal Growth
  • Leisure and Entertainment
  • Health

Based on these categories, do you know what you would rank your overall satisfaction on a scale of 1-10? Do you feel like there are one or more categories that stand out of areas of unhappiness or dissatisfaction? Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a 10 in every area. However, by identifying where your unhappiness lies, your life coach will be able to better help you overcome the challenges in your way.

Work with a Life Coach at Thriveworks Edison, NJ

Our life coaches at Thriveworks Edison Therapy help people just like Katie and Sebastian. We offer accomplished, experienced, and professional life coaches who have the qualifications necessary for this area of mental health. Beware, however, as some people who claim to be life coaches may not have the education and certifications required to be a licensed coach. Luckily, your search can be over! All of our coaches are reputable.

Here are some of the many benefits of working with a life coach:

  • They can assist you in setting and achieving your goals
  • They can help you keep yourself accountable for working towards your goals
  • Life coaches can also provide you encouragement along the way
  • A life coach can guide you by helping you identify the areas in life you seek to change
  • With the help of a life coach, you can find the success in happiness in the areas of life that you have been missing

Talisha Harrison helped me by giving me the tools to help me navigate some difficult relationships. I also appreciate how kind, sensitive, and empathetic she was as I have been grieving a recent loss of a parent. I have also been recovering from a serious medical condition. Should I feel the need to seek counseling in the future, I would not hesitate to return to counseling with Talisha.

I find Nancy to be a deeply compassionate, caring, mental health professional who takes a strength based approach in her practice. Her heightened mindfulness creates an environment where meaning can be cultivated. Her divergent perspectives and holistic approach transcend the work she does.
