Well Being | Do you need a life coach?

By  |  0 Comments

The idea of someone guiding you in the right direction and helping you attain your life goals sounds great on paper. But how does it work in practice and is it for you?

Most people do not know what a life coach let alone what they do. Of course, we have heard of them before but most of us have never seen them in practice.

Life coaching is aimed at helping people meet goals in their personal or business lives by guiding them in the right direction – similar to a sports coach – although the methods used by individual life coaches vary greatly. It is a form of counselling and so usually requires a series of individual sessions. Ideally, a life coach is to help break their negative belief patterns, act more decisively, and set clear goals.

So, who should you go to a life coach? If you find yourself stuck in a rut, they can help you make the big decisions. They will help you dig underneath the thoughts and feelings of ‘what if’s,’ help you discover what’s important to you about this decision, and explore these voices. For example, you may be deciding to change job, move country or end a relationship.

If you are feeling unhappy and want or need a change, a life coach can help. They will try to pinpoint exactly why you are unhappy and help you to make the necessary changes.  On the flip side, you may want to tap into the expertise of a coach when you are happy. When you are in a state of happiness, you are more open to growth. You may be more willing to do whatever it takes to succeed when you are motivated and happy to do the work.

If you feel scared as to what to do next in your life, a coach can help you take action and guide you through your fears.
