Life Coaching is provision of advice or guidance in decision-making, in particularly in emotionally, spiritually, and physically significant situations. Life Coaches help their clients by listening, evaluating, creating strategies, implementing those strategies, and evaluating those strategies with them. Life Coaches also help clients explore and understand their worlds and so discover better ways of thinking and living.
A common factor in most counseling situations is that the client is demoralized, distressed or otherwise in a negative state of mind about something.
Life Coaching can be for one person or a group (typically couples and families) and may be delivered through a number of methods, from face-to-face dialogue, group work, telephone, chat room email and written materials.
Life Coaching is largely a voluntary activity whereby clients must wish to change and collaborate willingly with the coach. Early coaching activity in some cases involves bringing referred clients to this point of readiness.
Results of coaching can include:
• Insight and understanding of oneself, with greater self-awareness.
• Changing of one's beliefs and mental models.
• Increased acceptance and appreciation of oneself.
• Increased emotional intelligence.
• Increased ability to control oneself and one's urges.
• Development of skills and abilities that require self-management.
• Improved motivation towards actions that are good for one's self.
• Understanding of others and why they act as they do.
• Increased appreciation and care for others.
• Improvement in relationships with others.
• Changing of relationship with family, friends and others.
• Making amends for past negative actions.
Our life coaches are not licensed behavioral health therapists or doctors. Therefore, we have a moral and legal obligation to report unlawful, violent, and unsafe life threatening situations to the proper authorities. At times, some situations may be better handled by more qualified behavioral health specialists. In those situations, we are more than obliged to report or refer clients to qualified providers while spiritually supporting the client's treatment; even acting as accountability partners.
In summary, life coaching typically leads to resolution of a living problem, learning of some kind of life skill and/or improvements in social inclusion.
