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

Need more help deciding?

You have a nagging fear of running out of money. You are always hearing the reports about unemployment rising and thousands of people losing their jobs. Reports say that people should save money for retirement, and you hope you will have enough money to make it through the end of the month with all the bills that are stacking up. Living like this is making you fearful, and you don’t enjoy anything because you don’t know what tomorrow will bring.

Sports coaches help their teams with strategies, use the players’ talents to make the right moves in the game, and see their way to the finish line. Life Coaches are similar in that they work with people to find out what their personal gifts are, how to use them in plotting out what they want, and guide them in pursuing their goals. They work with people to dig through the fears they have, focus on career changes and find ways to succeed and excel in the jobs they already have.

Life Coaches at Thriveworks in Nashville, TN are educated in the many issues that preclude people from growing and work with them on motivation and guidance. For a decade, Life Coaches at Thriveworks have worked with thousands of people to help them take advantage of their capabilities and talents, as well as to set targets and reach them.

Life Coaching in Nashville, TN Focuses on Setting Targets

If you won the lottery worth millions of dollars tomorrow, what is the first thing you’d do with the money? Would you open up a business you have always envisioned? Would you travel to a far-off tropical island and enjoy an extended vacation? You’ve probably entertained these questions once or twice in your life. These types of questions are called “Miracle Questions,” and Life Coaches ask them to investigate your answers and find out what you want in life. You may not have thought about winning the lottery and becoming a millionaire in a while, because you’re overwhelmed with life—working, paying bills, dealing with family issues, and running to the various places to take care of endless responsibilities. The knowledgeable Life Coaches at Thriveworks will work with you to identify the things that hinder you—or make you “stay in place”– and not move ahead to what you really want in life.

Examples of Life Coaching Scenarios

The Life Coaches at Thriveworks will work with you to identify what your fears are and what keeps you from moving ahead, as well as issues like being uncomfortable with people at work and in your personal life, getting through hardships, making a plan for financial goals and more.

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

1) You and your spouse can’t seem to agree on finances. While you want to set money aside for retirement so you don’t have to work well into your 70s, your wife can’t seem to stop spending the money as soon as it comes in. She shops like there’s no tomorrow and buys shoes and handbags in every color of the rainbow. You try to reason with her that it is important to put the money away for a rainy day, but she thinks that’s boring and you should live for today. The two of you are completely at odds about finances.

Life Coaches will work with you to filter through the problems that keep you from getting to your goals, as well as set a strategy to work on issues and guide you.

2) Maybe you are single, have been divorced, or lost a spouse. You are now thinking about a relationship, but you have fears of not being able to meet somebody. What if you are unlovable? What if there is nobody out there that shares your interests? Would you have to endure living a life alone, because you can’t find a compatible relationship?

Life Coaches will work with you to examine your fears and anxieties and find out what you want out of a relationship, as well as be a sounding board and a guide in the process.

3) You graduated from college with stellar grades, and you can’t seem to find a job in your field. Sure, there are jobs out there, but they pay minimum wage and aren’t remotely related to what you had studied. If you worked at any one of those jobs, you’d get further and further away from obtaining a career in your field. To make matters worse, you had to move back home with your parents. The monumental debt of college is weighing over your head, and now you can’t even seem to get your foot in the door of a company. How will you pay your college loan?

A Life Coach will work with you to examine your strengths for a career, evaluate your finances, and plot a strategy to fulfill the dreams you envision, as well as be a guide.
