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

Rachel is nervous about her upcoming move. For the past five years, she lived in the same town and the same apartment, but she took a risk. Rachel is excited but nervous. She is leaving her home, moving to a new city, and taking a different job. Rachel is going to have new personal and professional challenges—making friends, establishing herself at her job, setting up a new home. Rachel decides to seek out a life coach to help her navigate all these new challenges. After her first session, she knows she has made the right decision. Rachel is feeling focused and ready to take on this new phase.

Noah is facing a big decision. He could stay with his current job, but his brother has asked him to start a business together. The perfect opportunity came along to open a restaurant—their childhood dream. What should Noah do? Take the risk or play it safe. Noah and his brother have a plan, and it might just work. Any new venture, however, has a lot of risk. Noah has done well at his current job, but his first child is six months old. Part of Noah craves the risk. Part of Noah craves the security. Before committing either way, Noah commits to meeting with a life coach. After a few sessions, Noah realizes that this is a risk worth taking. Confident in their plan, Noah commits to the venture with his brother. He continues to see the life coach, and the coach helps him navigate those early days of the business.

Thriveworks Counseling in Fayetteville, NC offers life coaching anyone who is wondering what they are capable of… wanting more from life… needing a little encouragement, inspiration, and challenge. Our coaches are ready to be an ally during life’s personal and professional challenges.

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.

Meet with a Life Coach at Thriveworks Fayetteville, NC

Life does not come with an instruction manual, but that does not mean you have to tackle every challenge alone. Help is available. The life coaches at Thriveworks Fayetteville are ready to be an ally, and they have appointments available.

When you contact our office, a scheduling specialist will answer your call—not an automated response, not a voicemail, but a real person will help you make an appointment. You may be meeting with your coach within 24 hours. New clients frequently do. We offer weekend and evening sessions because we know that not everyone can make an appointment during business hours. We also work hard to offset the cost of coaching by working with many insurance companies. We take many different insurance plans. We never put our clients on a waitlist, because we do not keep one. Instead, we want our clients to have the help they need when they need it.

Let’s work together. Let’s achieve that goal. Call Thriveworks Fayetteville today.
