What is life coaching?
Life coaching is about finding your own answers, discovering who you are, what you want, what isn’t working for you, and what is. It’s about falling in love with yourself and your life, making your own miracles, having fun, playing often, and taking healthy risks. It’s about personal responsibility and accountability. It’s defining, adjusting, and re-defining. It’s about giving your dreams deadlines. It’s growth, action and achievement.
Life coaching does not involve handing you a “life manual” and telling you how you should be living. I approach coaching sessions by asking a lot of questions. Coaching is unique in that coaches respect and trust your answers, because we believe the client instinctually know what’s right for them, even if they don’t think they do. This “client centric” style must be why coaching is so effective.
What does coaching mean to me?
It means falling IN LOVE with myself.
It means living my truth.
Ok, that sounds cheesy. What does “living my truth” mean?
It means living without apology.
It means living without excuses.
Who really uses a Life Coach?
Athletes, teams, CEOs and Execs, actors, singers, performers, writers, entrepreneurs, on and on and on the list goes… There are many styles of coaches for a variety of needs. However one thing remains the same, all coaches support the “coachee” in their process of achieving specific desired results.
How do I know if I need a coach?
I like to refer to the happiness/personal fulfillment barometer.
If you check in with youself and find that your happiness/fulfillment is at a low level in one of the above areas, it may mean you’re off track and may need a life coach to help you find your way again.
Sometimes we need another person’s guidance to act as a sounding board to see if we could be doing something different. After all, you don’t get different results doing the same thing over and over, do you?
How many sessions do I need?
That depends on the person and their needs. Anywhere from 1-12 sessions; however a 3 session minimum would be my recommendation for best results. Studies have shown that it takes the human brain at least 30 days to break a habit.
