The benefits of Life Coaching are wide ranging and unique to each client’s goals and objectives.
A positive coaching experience with a caring, supportive Coach can be life changing and result in a whole new way of thinking and being.
Clients have also reported a number of other specific benefits that have had a major impact on their lives moving forward:
- Overcoming the fear of taking risks and being free to make life choices based on your hopes and not on your fears is very powerful. Imagine the freedom you will have to embrace life’s possibilities with confidence and not dread!
- Giving up the self-limiting beliefs that impede your ability to grow and flourish is important in maintaining high self-esteem. When you talk back to the thoughts that say “I’m not good enough . . .”, you create a mindset that builds on your strengths and competence and not on your perceived deficiencies.
- Finding a new life purpose especially after retirement, is very powerful in allowing you to remain active and engaged in life for many years. It is essential to have a passion and purpose, a reason to get up each day with renewed energy and focus.
- Creating more balance in your life is an important benefit mentioned by many clients, and is essential in maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself and the other important people in your life. Balance means finding time for both projects and leisure, finding time to nurture friendships and family relationships, finding time to exercise as well as rest. A life in balance has all these components and finds time to pay attention to all of them.
- Improved relationships with family and friends is mentioned as another very positive benefit of Life Coaching. Learning to mange conflicts in a more helpful way as well as developing better communication skills is often the result of changes brought about during Coaching.
Life Coaching Explained: What’s Involved
Life Coaching is a process that will assist you to move from a place of feeling frustrated or stuck in some way in your life, to a place where you will be able to make the changes in behavior or thinking or lifestyle that will allow you to reach new personal or professional goals. These changes can result in a more satisfying and productive life, the life you have always dreamed of achieving.
Life Coaching is not psychotherapy, and Life Coaches do not provide mental health services or diagnose or treat mental illness. If a Coaching client is in need of mental health services, the Coach is obligated to refer them to a qualified mental health professional.
