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 Richmond, VA 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 Richmond therapists work with clients to create goals and potential timelines for treatment.

Need more help deciding?

If you took a few minutes to think about the course of your life, how would you feel? Would you be satisfied with the progress you’ve made in the last few years? Or, would you notice a missed opportunity or two? Many of us would probably remember a few monumental decisions, such as taking that job or breaking up with that boyfriend/girlfriend. The reality is that we are one decision away of a totally different life.

“A good coach asks great questions to help you remove the obstacles in your mind and to get you back on track in life.” –Farshad Asl
