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

Need more help deciding?

Writing short stories is what you love to do, but you work at a boring desk job. You would love to spend your days writing stories and getting them published, but you don’t know the first thing to do or how to go about it. Besides, you have a job that pays your bills, even if it isn’t the most interesting and doesn’t challenge you. It would be best to stay where you are, safe and secure—even if you are already counting the years to your retirement, right?

A Life Coach works with you to find out what you want in your career and life, to put a plan in place and take the steps to get what you really want. Like a coach for a sports team, a Life Coach is a sounding board and guide. A Life Coach works with you to make major life moves, such as a career change, as well as to find equity in personal versus work life and to get through the “what ifs” and doubts that weigh you down.

Life Coaches at Thriveworks in Houston, TX are skilled in the many situations that hamper people from growing personally and work with them to move forward. For more than a decade, Life Coaches at Thriveworks have worked with thousands of people to help them use their strengths and talents and steer the course to achieving their goals.

Life Coaching in Houston, TX Focuses on Growth

What if you had a dream, where you were able to pursue your number one passion in life (like writing short stories instead of the boring desk job)? What would it be? What would you do differently in your life? Would you move? In Life Coaching, people are asked the “Miracle Questions” to explore the answers and assist in determining your goals in life. Many people don’t have answers to some of the questions, because they are obscured by the many other things in life, such as finances, raising a family and trying to cope with everyday problems. A professional Life Coach at Thriveworks will work with you to address the issues that stop you from moving forward, make a list of priorities and help you to be laser-focused on what you want in life.

Life Coaching to Address Issues

The Life Coaches at Thriveworks will work with you to set priorities and guide you to get to your goals, whether it is making a career change, feeling comfortable in settings like networking for business, finding better, stronger relationships or discovering your talents and value.

Life Coaches will work with you in the following situations, as well as numerous others.

1) Maybe you really like your job, but lately you lack motivation and the enthusiasm you once had. You want to be more productive, but you don’t really know what is keeping you from getting there.

Life Coaches work with individuals who face a lack of motivation in the workplace to identify the problem and improve self-confidence, communication skills, life/work balance, team effectiveness, time management and more.

2) You always had a dream of driving across the country, making stops to explore along the way. Or, you always said that one day you would visit Ireland to find out more about where your ancestors lived and the country you heard so much about while growing up. But, you push these things out of your mind, because you feel self-centered and shouldn’t be thinking about such extensive trips. You have a family, a full-time job, a lengthy “to do” list and so many other things that come first. You feel guilty for even thinking that you would like to travel, because the money would be better spent on others in the family. The travel would take you away from the many obligations you have. So, you tuck these visions away.

Life Coaches will work with you to find out what is important to you personally, sort through the guilty feelings and clarify what you want in life.

3) You have a great life. Your children are excelling in school, your job pays well, and you have plenty of activities that keep you all busy during the week and on the weekends. What more could you ask for?

It may sound odd, but the best time for a Life Coach is when you are happy and in a “good place” in life. This is the time you are more willing to grow and open up to the other things that are out there for you. When you are happy, you are more apt to do the work and have the motivation to grow.

Thriveworks Life Coaches are Professionals

Something as important as Life Coaching would seem to be governed and require a certain amount of education and knowledge. But, that is not the case. In fact, anybody can be a Life Coach—they can open the doors to a business and start seeing clients.

While you are researching Life Coaches, which can be a big job, you want to find somebody who meets standards for the proper education and background. After all, this is the person you will share your most personal information with, as well as make decisions that affect your life.

The experienced Thriveworks Life Coaches have professional licenses, credentials and backgrounds. Make an appointment at Thriveworks Life Coaching in Houston, TX at (281) 667-9790 today and start on the path to reaching your goals.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
