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

Need more help deciding?

It happens to all of us. Maybe you’re stuck in traffic on your way to your 9-5 job, or taking the dogs for a walk, or doing dishes. Wherever you are, you’re overcome by this desire to do more. And the realization that you could do more, if only you start taking the steps towards that dream that won’t stop whispering to you.

Thriveworks Franklin Life Coaches know that those dreams can become a reality! Whether it’s going to the gym or starting a family business, those dreams can become goals, which becomes a plan, which becomes reality.

We can stand in the valley all day and look up at the beautiful mountain. Together with a Thriveworks Franklin Life Coach, let’s take the first steps together and begin the climb by making an appointment at 617-360-7210.

What Is Life Coaching?

Since Life Coaching is new to the counseling profession, a lot of untrue beliefs circle it. While yes, it is similar to counseling, it is not quite the same.

Both counseling and life coaching will help you lead happier, healthier lives. They both give you tools to overcome mental, emotional, or physical roadblocks. But they differ in where you start.

A counseling session will bring healing. A Life Coaching session will bring reached potential. For example, when an athlete tears her muscle, she’ll rest, heal, and see a physical therapist. Similarly, counseling mends together the mind and soul, and help people back on their feet. But what if the athlete wants to perform her absolute best? Maybe she wants to win a race.

Then, a coach would be the best bet for her. Someone who will support her by teaching her and encouraging her as she pushes herself out of her comfort zone and builds stronger muscles. Life Coaching takes an already good thing and make it amazing. We’ll develop skills and build on ones you already had. There is untapped potential living inside all of us, Life Coaching with Thriveworks Franklin is about reaching that potential!

Almost any topic can be addressed in a Thriveworks Franklin Life Coaching session. And if it dips into more of the counseling side of our profession- that’s ok! (We’re still moving forward, right?)

A few common topics include:

  • Graduating from college
  • Earning and receiving a promotion
  • Adjusting to change
  • Making a major life transition
  • Embarking on a new career path
  • Opening a family business
  • Feeling happy and comfortable at work

The right ingredients to create the perfect goal-reaching plan is dependent on who you are, your goals, your situation, and so much more! For this reason, a Franklin Life Coach makes the focus on you, not on a set program. So, no matter how long you think you have to go, or if you think you just need a motivational pep talk or two, Thriveworks Franklin is here for you. We will meet you where you’re at and walk beside you as you reach new heights.

What Will a Life Coaching Session Look Like?

In today’s age, you probably have more self-doubt than you do confidence. Self-doubt is a dream killer! At Thriveworks Franklin Life Coaching, we will deconstruct those doubts and take a renewed look at your strengths. Of course, we’re not just going to sit and stare at them, we’re going to learn how to use them!

Life Coaching is also all about self-reflection and attainable goals. Why? Because you know yourself better than we ever could, and small steps add up to big leaps.

What you take away from a Thriveworks Franklin Life Coaching session will be different from person to person and session to session. Some things you can expect include:
