Wondering how life coaching can help you? A life coach helps you live your best life by identifying your individual personal goals and developing tailored action plans. Coaching is different from individual therapy because it is usually focused on one particular problem or goal. It is both present and future oriented versus overly focused on the past. A life coach understands there are multiple paths towards your goals, dreams and vision. You know the answers, you just need some support to find your way towards creating the life you want.
If you are seeking coaching, you are likely not experiencing depression or anxiety, so you may wonder why you would seek coaching from a therapist. Therapists are particularly well-suited for this role because we are trained to listen empathically and non-judgmentally, help you reframe your thinking, and to seek solutions and imagine possibilities. We also come from a place of strongly adhering to ethical guidelines for your confidentiality.
Life coaching may be right for you, if you are struggling to find more purpose, value or balance in your life.
