Remy is starting to second guess some big changes that are coming her way. She is stepping out of her comfort zone and getting ready to move across the country. After working in the same city at the same job, she was ready for a change… at least she thought so. Doubts are keeping her awake at night. Did she make the right decision? Will she find a good apartment? How will she make allies at her new job? Is she up for this adventure? Remy decides to take action and reach out for help. She makes an appointment with a life coach. Remy lets her coach know about these nagging thoughts, and together, she and her coach make a plan. They map out action steps that Remy can take to make new friends, establish herself in her job, and secure good housing. Throughout the transition, Remy continues to meet with her life coach via teleconference. A year into the change, Remy is established and confident in her new life, and she is still leaning on her life coach to help her keep moving forward.

The life coaches at Thriveworks High Point work with many different clients who are facing many different life situations. If you are wondering what could be next…what your potential is…what else life has to offer, consider working with a life coach. Life coaches are allies for overcoming professional and personal challenges.
What Exactly Is a Life Coach?
Life coaches are mental health professionals who help their clients reach their full potential in life. In many ways, they are not so different from athletic coaches. They helped people reach professional and personal goals. Typical life coach clients are CEOs who are continuing to grow, recent grads who are adjusting to their first jobs, teachers who want to help their students but also need to keep their balance, retirees who are finding new patterns for their life, and more. Many people can benefit from life coaching, and the coaches at Thriveworks High Point offer personalized coaching that accounts for their clients’ unique needs and circumstances.
Life coaches are not therapists or counselors. Strict licensing and educational requirements regular who can call themselves a therapist or counselor. Life coaches, in contrast, have no official licensure requirement. Anyone can technically start a practice as a life coach, regardless of their educational or professional experience. One life coach can greatly vary from another in terms of quality of care given. At Thriveworks, in contrast, our life coaches are also licensed mental health counselors or therapists. They have extensive training and experience to provide exceptional care, and as life coaches, they often have more flexibility than a traditional therapeutic role. Coaches can individualize each session to a client’s unique needs in the moment. The benefits of life coaching may include…
- A growing awareness of your goals.
- An unbiased guidance and support system.
- Techniques and strategies for achieving a goal.
- More accountability that can keep you motivated and moving forward.
- A safe place to talk about yourself—what you are actually thinking and feeling.
- Encouragement and inspiration.
- Improved self-esteem and confidence.
- Professional development.
- Personal development.
- A clarified path toward success and happiness.
What Might Happen at a Life Coaching Appointment?
Appointments are very personal and drive by a client’s unique goals and needs. Nonetheless, the purpose of each life coaching session is the same: to help clients focus upon their professional and personal goals. Examples of those goals often include:
- Feeling happy and comfortable at work.
- Earning and receiving a promotion.
- Embarking on a new career path.
- Opening a family business.
- Working on healthier relationships.
- Adjusting to change.
- Graduating from college.
- Making a major life transition.
