Why Hire A Coach?
Unlike going to talk with your family and friends about a problem, where they offer you advice and give their opinions, a life coach provides you a place to "download" your thoughts and feelings in a safe, non-judgemental, loving space to draw on your own inner wisdom.
A life coach partners with you to remind you of your greatness and worthiness, when you forget.
A life coach partners with you to find solutions to the problems causing you stress.
A life coach gives you the tools to get unstuck, and challenges you to take action in spite of your fears.
Life coaches are objective listeners who provide a fresh perspective.
How Is Coaching Different From Therapy?
People understandably wonder how coaching is different from therapy. Therapy is the closest model we have to the profession called coaching, but the two are very different.
Coaching is NOT about processing your emotional history or diagnosing and treating mental health issues.
Coaching IS action oriented, with a focus on a client's current life and plans for the future.
In therapy, clients may talk about the changes they'd like to make in their lives, but the "how to" and the resources are often missing. Life Coaches help clients design a new life. They guide clients to anticipate the obstacles that arise on the way to this new life, A coach helps navigate the client around the obstacles and shows them how to turn obstacles into strategies to drive amazing results.
