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 Providence, RI 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 Providence therapists work with clients to create goals and potential timelines for treatment.

Need more help deciding?

The reality of our modern lives is that we all face challenges. The details of those difficulties will change depending on the situation you find yourself in but whether you are a teacher, a businessman, a researcher, or a nurse, the one thing that we have in common is that there are challenges we face on a daily basis.

The most common trials are with careers or relationships, or with anxiety and stress levels, and many of us are plagued by self-doubt. Many people spend their whole lives trying to overcome these difficulties, but it is accomplished much more successfully with help. A professional life coach at Thriveworks Counseling in Providence, RI may well be able to provide help with this.

How a Life Coach May Be Able to Help

It may be the case that you want to work on a romantic relationship, or to find a better balance between work and home life, or it may be that you want to change careers and don’t know what to do next. These are some of the most important aspects of your life and a professional life coach can offer guidance in these areas. One of the most productive aspects of life coaching is that such a professional will help you assess what is most important to you, and exactly why this is. At the end of the day, this may all seem rather facile, but you would be surprised to learn just how difficult the average person finds it to unlock these complications in their own lives. Some of the areas in which a life coach may be able to help include:

  • Discover what your priorities are and why
  • Learn the best way to manage those priorities
  • Establish strategies and techniques to help you achieve your ultimate goals
  • Remove the obstacles that are in your path.

In this way, a life coach can help you to bridge the distance between who you are and who you would like to be by providing committed time and dedicated support. If you are unhappy, or merely unsatisfied with some aspect of your life, it is within your power to change it. You simply need to have the desire and commitment.

Work with the Life Coaching Professionals at Thriveworks

If you feel you have been checking many of the boxes in this article as we have gone along, you may well benefit from contacting a professional life coach. Never feel it is a failure to seek help in this way; if anything, it is the complete opposite and probably the best gift you could ever bestow on the future you.

Vivian provides a welcoming conversational space for exchange. She is able to listen with genuine care and when the time is right give feedback that is both empathetic and constructive. If I have to share a problem with her that might be difficult to share with even a close friend, I feel she is able to help coach me along with a patient reassurance that my thoughts and feelings will be considered without judgment. There may not always be a direct or immediate answer to what I’m working through but she is able to encourage healthy thought-habits and emotional strategies which help me to progress. I really appreciate her respectful frame of mind and down-to-earth personality, they make talking with her worthwhile.
