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

Need more help deciding?

When we were younger, many of us played sports in grade school, from soccer to basketball, to cheer, football, gymnastics. Regardless of our preferences, we all had a coach that showed us how to perform well and how to also find enjoyment in the given sport. Without this figure, we most likely wouldn’t have found the same success or joy in the sport.

The point is that coaches aren’t just for grade school sports. There are coaches who can guide and support is in every area of life: they’re called life coaches. Life coaches step up to the plate to help their clients succeed and find happiness throughout their life journey. Therefore, if you feel like you could use a little help with personal or professional development, consider working with a life coach. They can help you grow, achieve, and find the fulfillment you’re looking for.

Life coaching is your opportunity to take your life from good to great.

Can you identify an area of your life that is missing that element of joy or success? Are there several areas in which you could improve? If so, our Thriveworks Counseling in Worcester life coaches are here to help. These professionals can assist you with your personal life and your professional life. They will use their knowledge, skills, and experience to help you achieve more. They can also serve as your accountability partner, as you set and work toward new goals. Call (508) 409-6134.

How Can Life Coaching Benefit Me?

Thriveworks in Worcester life coaches and counselors are dedicated to helping, guiding, supporting every individual that they meet with. As we mentioned above, our life coaches narrow in on assisting their clients with growth and success. For instance, they might help one individual explore different career opportunities and decide which one makes the most sense for his or her life; they might help someone else settle in as they transition to a new city. The possibilities are endless. That said, the benefits of working with one of our Thriveworks Worcester life coaches include:

  • Work with a licensed, caring professional
  • Guidance and support during stressful times
  • Help in identifying areas of life that need improvement
  • Accountability in working toward one’s goals
  • Endless encouragement, inspiration, motivation
  • Assistance in finding greater happiness, fulfillment, and success

Are you interested in exploring these benefits and finding out what life coaching might do for you? Contact Thriveworks Counseling Worcester today to talk to our scheduling team and sign up for your first session. Your life coach will be happy to work with you in-person or virtually.

The True Value of Life Coaching—Examples

Life coaching can help any and every individual. Consider Kyle: Kyle feels like life is passing him by. He’s been following the same routine, working the same job, hanging out with the same people. He likes his job and he loves his friends, but he just doesn’t feel super happy or fulfilled. Kyle realizes that it’s time to step up and make some beneficial changes in his life. But, he just isn’t sure how to go about it. So, he does what he can and schedules an appointment with a life coach.

To echo what we said earlier, life coaches focus on helping people get more out of life. This means that they can help you find more joy, more success, and more fulfillment in this or that area. When you first meet with your life coach, they’ll want to hear from you what your goals or as well as what problem areas you have identified. Then, they will strategize a plan for helping you meet your goals and address the problems that are prevalent in your current lifestyle. Whatever it is you need help with, our Thriveworks Worcester life coaches are here to provide their professional help and support.

I have been very happy with the counseling I have received. Jason is a down to earth person. I like him on a personal and professional level. He is a good listener and understands my challenges. He has offered techniques to help me identify my anxieties before they have a chance to affect my behavior. He has introduced me to Cognitive Behavioral therapy as one of the tools I may find useful to effect change. I have made improvements in my behavior as a result of Jason's counseling.

I have the privilege of working with Jamie (Coonan) Bruce for the past 4 months+ and have gained a sense of peace and equilibrium by doing so. Jamie has guided me to create a thriving daily practice of serenity and peace even in my own fragmented chaotic times along with the insane chaotic times in the world presently. I feel my relationship with her has led me to an understanding of my past trauma that is beneficial in my growth and connection with family and others. As we resolve past issues, it is gently ushering in a new skill set. I am better able to manage the fluctuating moods and emotions enhancing my coping skills. Jamie's experience with PTSD for so many years is a blessing for me as I live with hypervigilance day in and day out. I have been able to better manage my anxiety and I am learning how to manage my pent up anger making fluid, acceptable and letting it go. I feel blessed that I found Jamie to work with and am grateful for her teaching, listening and presence.

I have been seeing Jeffrey White for four months now, to deal with longstanding issues related to a traumatic childhood. He has taught me so much about how trauma affects the body and mind and how to change that. That education, along with his compassion and encouragement have helped me get to a place of calm and confidence that would have seemed impossible to me before starting therapy. I'm so grateful for his help - it's been transformational for me.

I have been a client of Jeffrey White from Thriveworks for a few months now. We meet weekly and after each session I feel educated and heard. His ability to hold space for me is recognized and appreciated ten fold. Our sessions involve a combination of therapy and coaching, and I couldn't ask for someone better to just listen to me and provide objective feedback. If you are looking for an educated, thoughtful, and inspirational therapist, Jeff White is your person.
