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 Somerville, MA 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 Somerville therapists work with clients to create goals and potential timelines for treatment.

Life Coaches in Somerville, MA—Goal-Setting Help

The benefits of goal setting are clear, but setting and executing a goal is often easier said than done. Short-cuts do not work for long-term success. What does work? Support. Encouragement. Help. Mentoring. Many people find these from a life coach.

Thriveworks in Somerville offers life coaching because setting goals and achieving more in life is worth the effort, but we know it takes effort. We are ready to support our clients to find the right goals that can set them up to have the life they want.

Life Coaching for Every Area of Life

Thinking about goal setting or life coaching may spark thoughts about being forced to eat more vegetable or cut out sugar. That is one way to conceptualize goals, but there is another say to see it. Goals and life coaching are ways to keep what you value as the center of your life. Because people can value anything, they can center their life on anything—whatever brings joy, love, or excitement to your life. Here are a few examples of the topics people can cover with their life coach and set goals to make positive changes:

  • Finances: what kind of relationship do you want with money? How do you want to earn it? How do you want to spend it? What role should it play in your life?
  • Career: How do you want to put your strengths and skills to work in the world? What career path or job would be fulfilling?
  • Fun: When do feel energized? What makes you smile? When do you relaxed and rested?
  • Family: What are your current relationships like? With your spouse? Partner? Kids? Siblings? Parents? In-laws? What would you like them to be like?

There are no limits on the kind of goals people can set and the topics they can explore through life coaching.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
