what to expect
When you ask yourself: What is a Life Coach and why should you work with one? It could be at a point in time when you are genuinely close to unlocking your very unique purpose and potential.
A typical scenario would involve positive support and encouragement to help you identify and resolve personal and/or professional issues.
Note Life Coaching is distinct from therapeutic counseling.
A Life Coach is needed when someone is undergoing a crises or a key turning point in their life. A Life Coach can help a client identify obstacles such as one’s limited beliefs or low life expectations. A Life Coach works with the client to identify current and impending challenges; and to design a personal plan of action so that the client can achieve the unique outcomes he or she seeks in life.
The relationship between the Life Coach and their client is a co-creative partnership that seeks to:
Take full account of the client’s personality and self assessment
Identify, clarify, and create a vision tailored to each individual client
Encourage self-discovery leading to self enhancement
Freely shape and re-shape sound personal goals to make them achievable
Nurture sustainable life principles which benefit the client, the Life Coach and the client’s community.
These processes all work together to encourage the client to maximize his or her potential.
