Why Work with a Life Coach?
A life coach is a trained professional who helps their clients excel in all areas of life. Life coaches often help people reach their goals. Much like an athletic coach, life coaches help people reach their fullest potential. Clients who work with life coaches may be CEOs who want to keep growing, recent college grads who are struggling to adjust to the working world, teachers who want to reach their students, retirees who are crafting a new life, and the list could go on and on. Most people could benefit from working with a life coach, and at Thriveworks Fayetteville, our life coaches tailor their coaching to each client’s particular life circumstances and needs.
Life coaches are different than counselors or therapists. Many strict criteria determine who can be a counselor or therapist, including educational and licensure requirements. Life coaches, however, are not held to these standards. Anyone who wants to be a life coach can technically call themselves one and start a practice. At Thriveworks Fayetteville, however, we do things differently. Our life coaches are also licensed mental health professionals.
One of the benefits of life coaching is that coaches have more flexibility than a traditional therapeutic relationship. Coaches can tailor sessions to a client’s particular needs and even process events that happen the same day as the appointment. Other benefits of life coaching may include…
- An unbiased guidance and support system.
- A growing awareness of your goals.
- Strategies and techniques for achieving a goal.
- More accountability that may keep you motivated and moving forward.
- Encouragement and inspiration.
- A safe place to talk about yourself—what you are really thinking and feeling.
- Improved self-esteem and confidence.
- Personal development.
- Professional development.
- A clarified path toward happiness and success.
What Can a Life Coaching Appointment Look Like?
Life coaching appointment will vary according to each client’s needs and goals, but the general purpose is always the same: to advance the client’s focus and advancement toward on their personal and professional goals. Some of those goals may include:
- Earning and receiving a promotion.
- Adjusting to change.
- Embarking on a new career path.
- Opening a family business.
- Graduating from college.
- Feeling happy and comfortable at work.
- Working on healthier relationships.
- Making a major life transition.
Life coaching can occur in person, on the phone, or through the Internet. Many coaches are able to combine all three—meeting with clients, emailing with them, texting them, and calling them as needed. Coaches help their clients stay focused upon their goals while saying, “no” to distractions.
