About Coaching

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is an individualized process in which a Life Coach helps clients identify
specific goals and assists them in developing and implementing plans of action which will encourage them to move forward so they can achieve the desired outcomes.  This will be achieved using different methods of communication and detailed analysis of the client’s current situation, strengths, skills the client already has and/or needs, and limitations such as beliefs, fears and/or self sabotage behaviors.  The Life Coach will actively listen, observe, support, empower, inspire, motivate, challenge, and hold the client accountable throughout the whole process.  The Life Coach will build a partnership with the client based on positive rapport, respect, and commitment.

Are Life Coaching and Therapy the same?

Life coaching is not therapy.  A life coach is a professional who is an expert in one or many different areas and does not require a license to be able to work with a client.  A therapist is a professional who specializes in an specific area and who, in most cases, is required to have a license issued by the state or an organization in order to practice.  A life coach meets the client where he is at in the present and focuses on a desired outcome for the future.  Therapy goes into a much deeper level and could involve dealing with past issues that are holding an individual back and tries to resolve them using, in many cases, medical models or methods.

Do you need a Life Coach?

Why does coaching work? 
Coaches have the ability to view things from afar — in what some call "helicopter vision" — and to shed new light on difficult situations. Often they can act as a sounding board through tough decisions, help sharpen skills, and motivate.  — CFO Magazine

"Desire is the key to motivation, but it's the determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek." Mario Andretti
