Why life coaching?
You once wanted to get something out of life — personally and professionally.
But, now you’re stuck.
Everyday a hamster wheel — running as fast as you can, but never getting anywhere.
Too often, it feels like surviving the next day is your only goal. I get it. But, is survival enough for a rewarding life?
Of course it’s not. Survival mode shouldn’t be your long-term plan.
There are times when we may struggle, but the solution isn’t to get comfortable with that feeling. You need to escape it and move on. Easier said than done, right? Sure, but if you are reading this article, you are most likely aware that it’s time for a change — a change that cannot be delayed any longer. So, take the first step towards change and get informed.
Life Coaching – What is it and how does it work?
You may have heard about life coaching, but never really understood how it works, or how it can help you in your specific situation.
Well, life coaching is basically helping a person move forward. How? It can be by helping you with your career, some area within your personal life affecting you negatively, or a bit of both.
The approach I take with people, as a life coach, varies with each individual because every person’s circumstances are different.
Essentially, I act as a coach, cheerleader, sounding-board and sometimes your partner. The purpose of a life coach, among other things, is to listen to you and to help you identify the things that are holding you back.
So, if you are looking to make a change in your life or your career, but have no idea where to start, the life (and career) coaching process is definitely worth exploring.
Regardless of whether you are dealing with a job loss, a major change in your personal life, or you simply feel the need for a change to something new, coaching can help you put life in perspective, and help you identify your life goals — all while creating a plan that leads you to greater fulfillment and sucess.
Life Coach, Career Coach, Executive Coach — What’s in a Name?

The Benefits of Life Coaching
‘Are there really benefits to life coaching? Can a life coach really help my problems? I don’t think anyone can.’ Do these thoughts ring a bell?

Have a look at the benefits of life coaching and learn whether this is for you or not.
Life coaching addresses your specific circumstances
Coaching helps you with the issues that matter to you the most. The initial focus is to examine what you want to achieve, what your ideal future looks like and the skills and resources at your disposal. You’ll be able to understand the small details as well as the bigger picture.
It’ll help you discover what really matters to you
You learn how to make a change – starting with a focus on you and by narrowing down the things that are meaningful in your life. At this stage, you focus on your passion, dreams, and hopes. Activating your passions, and discovering the path to achieving your dreams is one of the best feelings you’ll ever experience.
It’ll help you discover more options
Working with your life coach, you’ll have the opportunity to discover some options you’ve never considered exploring. You’ll also learn how to evaluate each situation and to decide which option fits right with your values, lifestyle, and beliefs. This way you’ll feel more balanced in your decisions and enjoy life from a different perspective.
You’ll get the support and motivation you need
A life coach is always there for you to support you, motivate you, help you grow and celebrate your success. You’ll always be listened to and you can share your wildest and improbable goals without getting laughed at. The goal of a life coach is to see you thrive and provide all the necessary tools in order to make sure you get to your destination.
It’ll help you move past insecurities
Insecurities and low self-esteem can often be the biggest threat in moving forward. A life coach will identify those insecurities and help you overcome them — providing the support you need in order to grow both personally and professionally.
It’ll help you strategize
Sometimes it can be hard to focus on your goals. Not knowing the solution for your current situation can make that focus even more difficult. However, a life coach can immediately identify the right way for you to move forward.
A life coach may use challenging questions in order to help you discover and decide on which approach is the right one for you. After you identify the required actions to achieve your goals, the coach helps you totally commit to reaching them. All the while, the coach is there for you and helping you deal with any obstacles in your path.
It’ll help you understand where you are and help you get where you want to be
If you always do the same things, you can’t expect different outcomes. To achieve new goals, you must discover what you need to do differently and how to to it. That’s exactly what a life coach can help you with — identify new actions and achieve new goals.
It’s a valuable long-term investment in you
If you’ve spent your entire life giving to others, now is the time to invest in yourself. Life coaching pays dividends realized in your fulfillment, happiness, and personal growth.
Why hire a life coach?
In summary, a life coach can help you identify your life goals and develop an action plan to achieve them. The outcome? A positive life with great achievements. And you know what? What’s better than that?
