Maybe you’re driving to the same 9-5 job that you’ve had for the last ten years, doing the dishes, or sitting down to binge your favorite Netflix show again.

What is Life Coaching in The Woodlands, TX?
Life coaching is a newer faction of counseling that many people have found beneficial in the last few decades. While there are many similarities between life coaching and counseling, they are not the same.
First, the similarities: Both aim at progressing you to a healthier and happier life. Both require licenses and/or certifications (of which The Woodlands life coaches and counselors have). And in both, our counselors will work with you to teach you tools that will help you lead a healthier physical, mental, and emotional lifestyle.
The differences between life coaching and counseling are simply where you start. Counseling focuses on healing. Life coaching focuses on reaching untapped potential. For example, an athlete would see a physical therapist if she tore a muscle. The muscle needs time to heal before it can strengthen. This is like counseling. However, if she was already healthy and just wanted to improve her athleticism, she would see a personal trainer. This is like life coaching.
To be sure, there are many gray areas, and a good counselor or life coach will be able to draw strategies from both fields. At The Woodlands life coaching, we’ll work on developing skills both new and old!
One of the beautiful things about life coaching is that it is an incredibly broad session topic. The Woodlands life coaches leave lots of room for you to bring in whatever goals, dreams, concerns, or doubts you have. There is nothing too big or too small for a Woodlands life coach. If our discussions stray into the realm of counseling, that’s okay! Our life coaches are trained in both.
Commonly addressed topics include:
- Graduating from college
- Earning and receiving a promotion
- Adjusting to change
- Making a major life transition
- Embarking on a new career path
- Opening a family business
- Feeling happy and comfortable at work
There is no one way to live our life, but too often we get sucked into the preprogrammed lifestyle. Life coaching gives you the power to create your own life, whatever that looks like. So, wherever you are in your journey, Thriveworks The Woodlands is excited to meet you and be apart of it.
What Will a Life Coaching Session Look Like?
When chasing their dreams, you are more likely to experience self-doubt than confidence. But this self-doubt could end up getting in the way of who you want to be. That is why part of a life coaching session with The Woodlands will involve dismantling your doubts little by little and building up your confidence in your strengths. Then, we’ll learn how to use your strengths, so they best serve you!
Of course, acknowledging your weakness is an important part of goal setting and achieving, and we’ll work on that too. However, no weakness is so great that it should stop you from accomplishing what you set out to do. Maybe a weakness will mean we have to tweak the path, or extend the deadline, but the goal remains the same.
At the heart of every life coaching session will be self-reflection. It’s easier to know your path when you know yourself, and all those small steps are what will carry you to your mountain peak.
A few more specific examples of what to expect from The Woodlands life coaching sessions include:
- Unconditional support and guidance
- A thorough idea of your goals
- Techniques and strategies that will help you reach those goals
- Greater accountability
- An accurate self-image (confidence)
- Steps you can actually start to follow
Life is so much more than just surviving. When you start to hear the whisper of a dream, believe in it, believe in yourself. Thriveworks in The Woodlands is excited to start climbing your mountain today. Call us today at 281-667-9790.
