What is a Life Coach?
A Life Coach is not a psychiatrist. He is someone who will help improve your personal and/or professional life by offering support and encouragement while suggesting new ways to achieve your goals. A Life Coach is more of a partnership than anything else. It is a support system with one goal in mind: improving your quality of life.
What does a Life Coach do?
Professional coaches, through a partnership with the client, are there to help produce positive results, whether in their professional or personal lives. They help people perform better and ultimately improve the quality of their lives.
Why do people have a coach?
In most cases, a Life Coach is required when the person is in a transition phase and needs support for any of the following reasons:
Reassessing life goals and developing action plans
Lack of balance between work and life
Difficulty dealing with stressful situations
Difficulty making life decisions
Prioritizing projects and timelines
Urgent situations involving high risks or challenges
Identifying core strengths and maximizing their potential
Simplifying life to reduce stress and increase productivity
Help with time management
Lack of control over life
Making the move to the next level
Trained to listen, observe and customize an approach to the client’s needs, the coach will work to find solutions and strategies that will help the individual out of the rut they are in.
Do you need a Life Coach?
Only you will know if you really need a Life Coach or not. The following list of questions may help you decide:
Do you often feel overwhelmed from the daily tasks at hand?
Do you feel like you’re living life unconsciously?
Do you suffer from low self-esteem?
Do you feel like everyone seems to have a master plan but you?
Is there a lack of support in your life?
Do you feel like the whole world is out to get you?
Are you going through a difficult time in life and need a helping hand?
Do you have deadlines you just can’t deal with and don’t know how to cope?
Are you doing ok but would like to do better?
Answering yes to any of the above questions doesn’t necessarily mean you need therapy, but might suggest that you could benefit from some life coaching.
