You may have some questions, here are the answers.
Why Life Coaching?
A core part of being human is the need to be seen and validated. Life gets crazy…between family, work, relationships and our own expectations…it can be overwhelming. When we get so busy caring for everyone else…our needs go unmet, our dreams get buried and our desires go unspoken. Coaching is a dialog, an awakening, a collaboration and an exchange. Together we will navigate who you are, discuss your concerns, sort through your wants, determine your needs and rekindle your hopes…and create an actionable life map. Let’s find YOU…. the world needs exactly who you are and what you have to share.
How is life coaching different from therapy?
The fundamentals of life coaching are what distinguish it from therapy. A life coach does not diagnose, while therapists determine illnesses, so they may be clinically treated. Therapists analyze their client’s past as a tool for understanding present behaviors, whereas life coaches simply identify and describe current problematic behaviors, so the client can work to modify them. In other words, therapists focus on “why” and coaches work on “how”. Therapists help clients explore and understand their subconscious and unconscious mind. Their goal in this exploration is deep understanding. Life coaches focus on results and actions. Their goals can be measured with key performance indicators and specific behavioral outcomes and goals. Despite occasional areas of overlap, however, the work and processes of therapists and life coaches are distinct.
How long will I need a life coach?
Every client and situation is unique. Some clients are able to set to work immediately and make changes, while others take time to find clarity. That being said most coaches typically recommend at least one year of coaching. The first quarter or so of the sessions are used to identify limiting beliefs. The next three to six months are used to develop patterns to overcome those limiting beliefs. Thereafter the coach will help you with tools to make those patterns second nature, part of your regular habits that you practice on a daily basis.
Why Career Coaching?
We as humans are unique in thousands of different ways, as is our individual path to success, fulfillment and happiness in our chosen professions. For some its grit…working their way up in an organization through hard work and tenacity. Others combine laser focus, schooling, and persistent effort. For most…it’s a combination of these things unless you’re part of a family business, which carries its own unique challenges and opportunities. Whatever your situation, the fact is that most of us hit a wall at some point and can feel stuck. We can’t get ahead, are afraid to try. Work is work, but spending 8 plus hours every day at work isn’t supposed to be miserable. If it is…perhaps its time to take a look at your situation. Together, we’ll root out any self-limiting beliefs and self-imposed barriers and identify any situationally related issues that are preventing you from feeling valued, fulfilled and content with your work.
