Life Coaching

lc4mWhat is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is assisted self-help.

Through structured, purposeful conversations, clients are helped:

  • to understand their current situation better.
  • to determine what changes they want to make to that situation and to develop strategies to effect those changes and move towards new and better situations.

And if “assisted self-help” sounds like a contradiction, consider: Most of us have thoughts, dreams and unfulfilled ambitions that we aspire to; and frustrations, disappointments, stresses and much more, that we certainly don’t want. But we are not quite sure how to realise the former, and eliminate the latter.

Most people have an inkling (or more!) of what’s wrong with their life, but aren’t able to make changes. There’s a great quote:

“If you always do what you always did, then you’ll always get what you always got. To get a different result SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE.”

Life Coaching is a partnership that enables you to look at your life and decide in an informed way what changes you’d like to make; and then assists you in making those changes happen.

Life Coaching is NOT counselling or therapy. Like them it is aimed at increasing human happiness, but Life Coaching focuses primarily on the present and the future, not the past! Yes, it might be necessary to look back at behavioural patterns to identify unhelpful thinking and recognise limiting habits; or to look inside and examine your beliefs and attitudes. But that is all designed to help illuminate the ‘here and now’, and answer the primary questions: Where do I want to go; and what do I want to do.

Is your life like a favourite suit, dress or outfit that you once wore, when you were younger?

It’s the same cut, the same material, but somehow it doesn’t fit as neatly. It doesn’t thrill the way it used to. You don’t feel quite as confident and assured about it’s style as you once did. People aren’t saying “that looks great” anymore. It no longer holds the promise of good times to come.

Then you are among the majority, but you don’t have to settle for less.
