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 Silver Spring, MD 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 Silver Spring therapists work with clients to create goals and potential timelines for treatment.

Need more help deciding?

Challenges affect us all. You may be a small business owner, a passionate gardener, a business executive, an artist or a teacher but the thing you have in common with the rest is that daily trials can limit your enjoyment of life and how you see yourself in the world. These difficulties might include career, relationships, ambitions or a myriad of other stresses. It may be that you are looking to make a substantial change in your life, like a change of career, or it may be that you just want to make an already great romantic relationship even better. It may be that you are struggling to find a healthy balance between work and life. The range of particular problems people face is as numerous as the people themselves, but the common ones link us all.

“Know yourself to improve yourself.”

– Auguste Comte

To seek out a life coach, you don’t necessarily have to be facing a challenge.  It’s okay to want to do a little soul searching.  There is power in knowing who you are, and it’s never too late to take a deeper look into what makes you, you.  When you sit down with a life coach, you have the ability to explore all of the aspects of your life – whether those are good or bad.  The life coaches at Thriveworks Silver Spring in Montgomery County want to help you live a happy, healthy life.

Consider Life Coaching Help

No matter the challenges you face and no matter the particulars of your life, a professional life coach can help you find a greater balance between work and life, which may in turn reduce your stress. A professional life coach can offer guidance on how to improve your relationships or overcome the anxieties of social interactions. They do this by encouraging you to discover what is most important to you, and why. This may seem like a very simple thing, but it is the cause of so many trials and tribulations. A life coach may be able to help you:

  • Discover what your priorities are
  • Learn the best way to manage those priorities
  • Establish strategies and techniques to find balance
  • Remove the obstacles that are in your way
  • Offer dedicated time and support.

In this way a life coach can help to overcome the burdens of modern life and to make the most of every day. It is not simply a case of overcoming obstacles; it is a case of bridging the gap between who you are and who you want to be by deciding what is most important to you.  Life coaching is something anyone can benefit from.  There is no reason to feel embarrassed or hesitant toward receiving a helping hand in discovering more about yourself.

Everybody has a general idea of what they want their life to be like, and it can be extremely frustrating to not know how to get there.  Life coaching can be helpful in turning your dreams into your reality.  Life coaches help many clients face their futures with confidence, overcome life’s distractions, and reach their goals.

A'Lisa made the whole required process of alcohol treatment not seem so bad. I should not have had to do it. But her approach to teaching the group made me actually look forward to coming. Her lessons could be applied as whole life lessons, not just in reference to recovery. I was actually so satisfied with her that I began individual sessions with her after program completion. Thanks so much for this experience.
