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.
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.
Ryan works a great job, just bought a house, has recently gotten engaged, and is saving a lot of money for the future. There isn’t much going on in his life that is causing him any stress or problems. However, he is starting to realize that the career field he is in does not make him happy. He knew that this was just a stepping stone for him but now doesn’t know what’s next. He is starting to feel really burnt out at work and is hitting his threshold for the company. Realistically, he would like to know what his next step is within the next year. He just doesn’t know where to start.
Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. –Joshua J. Marine

How Can a Life Coach Help Me?
As previously mentioned, life coaches are highly experienced, licensed professionals who have the training and tools necessary to help people through different challenges in life and achieve the goals they have always dreamt of. The difference between a life coach and a therapist is that a therapist helps people overcome their past and manage their future while a life coach helps you look at your present and how to achieve the future you want. At Thriveworks Counseling in New Haven, our life coaches offer compassionate, understanding, and strong guidance. They understand that sometimes their clients need a little reassurance while others need a push in the right direction.
Life coaches can help you with things like:
- Build up your confidence
- Make a clear list of goals
- Help you stay accountable for your goals
- Find a career that you love
- Do more activities that engage your interest
- Find more meaning in your life
- For better, more positive relationships
- Feel happier and more fulfilled
- Develop a sense of purpose
- Overcome your slump
- Learn how to prioritize different areas of your life
Alongside all of these great reasons to start working with a life coach, they’ll also help you determine what areas of your life need more attention than others. To do so, they will ask you to rate the different areas of your life on a scale of one to ten. Some of the categories include career, love, finances, and self-fulfillment. It is okay if some of your areas are lower and it is also more than okay if sometimes an area of your life that used to be a 10 is now a 4. We understand that things happen, people change, you find new passions. Our goal is to help you figure out what areas you feel are lacking and get a proper plan of action in place. Consider these miracle questions:
- If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? How long would you go there?
- What type of relationships do you want to build with your friends or family?
- What is your dream job? What about it makes you passionate?
- If you had endless resources, what would you want to accomplish? Would you start your own business, pursue educational opportunities, build your dream home?
Did you start to feel excited when answering these? Good! There is no reason why you can’t have the life you live. Let us help you get started.
