What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching assumes that with the right support, information, and guidance, you will be able to gain the confidence and abilities to guide yourself in a goal-oriented direction. It is a partnership that is totally focused on your success and development. It is a powerful alliance that produces personal and professional results. Coaching is a dedicated relationship helping you move toward your vision, goals and desires, and creates a challenging relationship by providing honest feedback so you can accomplish more than you thought possible. It provides you with tools, structure and support to reach your goals, personal and professional, in the quickest way possible, while it helps you identify habits that may be holding you back and encourages you to take action. A variety of assessment and change tools and techniques are tailored to your specific needs.

How is Life Coaching different from therapy/counseling?

Therapy helps people overcome symptomatic disorders (anxiety, depression, etc.), and to recover from traumatic or difficult life situations, or to deal with serious relationship problems. Therapy focuses on moving people to a functional level where they can have and maintain a more normative life functioning. Life coaching is helping people who may be unfocused or need that little extra knowledge, support and motivation to get where they hope to be.

Where is coaching done?

Coaching services are typically provided by phone or video conferencing. Coaching sessions include review of progress, assignments, and occasional articles or media clips.

How long does coaching take?

The amount of coaching needed depending on the scope of the desired changes. Many people achieve the desired results within a 3 – 6 month period of coaching, but both shorter or longer time frames are not unusual.

How many hours per week does coaching require?

The weekly time commitment depends on the client’s objectives. If a potential client has fewer than 1 – 2 hours per week available, coaching is not a high enough priority to ensure success and should be postponed until it becomes more of a priority. Depending on the client’s objectives, 1 – 6 hours per week is typical. On one hand, researching requirements and strategies for a career change may easily take a dozen or more hours weekly for a few weeks; on the other hand, joining Toastmastors to working to overcome a fear and dread of public speaking may only require 4 – 6 hours per month, including the biweekly meetings.
