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?

Perhaps you tell yourself that tomorrow will be the day you sign up for the theater class you have always wanted. Or, maybe you want to take a course in investment, because you don’t want to depend on somebody else to handle your money—and maybe you can “make your money work for you” instead of the other way around. But, the next day passes and pretty soon it’s the end of another month, and you never did take your class. Again, you broke your commitment you made to yourself.

Life Coaching can help you keep the commitments you make. Believe it or not, the power of your word to a third-party can work. Making a commitment to a coach each week influences you to make it happen. You may also find action steps through coaching that never occurred to you.

Life Coaches at Thriveworks in Richmond, VA have experience about the different circumstances that stop people from accomplishing growth, work to provoke them to take the steps to change and provide their observations. For the past 10 years, Life Coaches at Thriveworks have worked with thousands of people to help them realize their strong points and gifts, as well as to prioritize in order to reach success.

Life Coaching in Richmond, VA Focuses on Commitment to Yourself

If you were to do something to enhance your life, what would it be? Would you like to become more educated in a certain area? What are you most interested in learning about? When you take a minute to answer the questions, you may find that you are stumped or haven’t spent much time thinking about what you would do for yourself.

A Life Coach will work with you to find the answers to the questions. When you are able to uncover your feelings, a Life Coach will work with you to strategize a plan to help you reach your goal. Whether you think you are motivated or not, disciplined or not, creative or not, the power of your word with a Life Coach will help you commit to and strive for what you want.

Life Coaching and the ‘Miracle Questions’

What have you always wanted to do but somehow never got around to? Was it something you thought was “out of your league,” too time-consuming with everything else you have going on or something you kept secret for fear others might think you were silly? Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn to tap dance, sew a beautiful quilt or take a wine-tasting class.

When Life Coaches ask “Miracle Questions,” people don’t always have answers readily available. They may not be sure of what they actually want or have never pursued the hobbies that interested them, because it would take time away from countless other things, such as cooking, cleaning, working and taking care of the family. Life Coaches at Thriveworks will work with clients to become more active in making priorities and taking steps to pursue their goals.

Life Coaching to Complement Your Life

Life Coaches at Thriveworks work with people on a spectrum of issues, helping them to set priorities and to make enhancements in areas they are dissatisfied with. Life Coaches will work with people to find out why they feel stuck in a pattern, can’t set boundaries, feel they can’t move on from a deteriorating relationship and more.

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

  • “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts,” said Winston Churchill. Some people are so afraid they will make a mistake that they never even try to do the things they want to. As adults, there are times people lose their bravery and stop trying to do anything, because it may not work. In this mindset, they will never truly live up to their potential, and it can create dissatisfaction and unhappiness in life.
  • Many people travel through life unchallenged, which can lead to boredom. Sometimes the technological conveniences and the ease of modern living can often take the “fun” out of life, and people can get stuck in a rut. They can become dull without experiencing the things in life that make it exciting. Many adventures in life are available to them, but they never take advantage of them.
  • When opportunity knocks, some people just keep on watching television and never answer the door. Sometimes they think opportunity looks too much like work or is outside of their comfort zone—and they let it pass by. By continually allowing chances to breeze past you, it will leave you with feelings of frustration. Risking things and “going for it” may mean changes for the better in your life.

Life Coaches will work with you to find out what is important to you, how to take the steps to get closer to what you want and guide you to getting the fulfillment you want out of life.

My experience has been somewhat less desiring. My ongoing sessions with the counselor is not as expected. It’s not engaging and oftentimes we are sitting in silence. I even asked if there was an ending game plan so we know where we are working towards and I didn’t get an answer.

Ashley Crouch has been been a blessing to me over the past year. I cannot begin to thank her enough for how she has impacted my life. She is very effective, professional, and respectful. My quality of life has improved by leaps and bounds and I'm forever grateful. I live in a rural area with few counseling options, so online counseling was a Godsend, and so was Ashley!

I’ve been seeing Ashley for about a month now at Thriveworks and I couldn’t be happier. She really helped me get back to person I use to be. I’ve had a rough couple years and she has me well on my way to a better me.
