What is a Life Coach and Why Do I Need One?

The new craze is having a life coach. But is it for me?
Do I need a life coach?
“My life is fine,” your saying to yourself, “it has its ups and downs but overall it’s ok”. But what if life could be better? There is a dream inside you that is waiting to burst out and greet the world. Perhaps there are little changes that you want to accomplish but you’re not sure where to start or you need help to keep focused. That’s why you need a life coach.

What is a life coach?
A life coach is someone who will be there for you. Someone who will support you through your decisions and help talk you through your options. A life coach works with you one on one- keeping all discussions confidential. Whether it’s achieving a goal or making a change in your life a life coach can help.

How will a life coach help me?
When you hire a life coach like me, you have chosen to make a change to your life and not continue with business as usual. Most of my sessions are done over the phone but in person sessions are possible. I start each session by clarifying what you want to take away from the session which is taking your overall goal and breaking it down into smaller bite size pieces. From there I ask you thought provoking questions to help you figure out what your next steps are. Sometimes it’s a matter of thinking outside the box and sometimes it’s a matter of just changing your thought process. All of which is to help you get closer to your overall goal. By the end of each session you will have a list of things to do for the next time that we meet. Soon you will be closer to your goals- it’s an exciting process.
