Most of us run into problems or get stuck wrestling with an issue that we really want to ask someones perspective, get some good unbiased advice, or even have a safe place to unpack current life stressors. Psychotherapists are licensed counselors that can explore mental illness, look into early childhood attachment breaches, explore traumas from past abuse. Coaches, on the other hand, do not focus on mental illness or historical traumas and breaches. A Life Coach is more focused on helping you achieve your future goals, explore pathways focused on getting you to where you wish to be next.
Think about times in your life that you felt overwhelmed because in your view “everything” was falling apart and you didn’t have anyone to reach out to. A Life Coach will be that someone that is a phone call or text away from giving you undivided attention while you explore where this overwhelm springs from and what principle needs work to overcome feeling completely stuck. Life Coaching that is done properly will focus on the principles of success in whatever area your exploring. Principles are the unchangeable laws or rules that govern specific outcomes we desire. For example if I am not trusted by my spouse and friends it is possible that the principle of integrity is being broken. When we honor a principle we are blessed with growth and progress, when we break with principles we earn the consequences that follow and growth stop while we fall into unendurable pain. Life Coaching is all about finding the principles associated with the life you want and help you get there.
Your Life Coach Can celebrate your successes and boost you to next level. Your Coach can be a shoulder to cry on when terrible things happen. Your Life can ESPECIALLY be there for you if you you are grinding away and absolutely NOTHING is happening. So whether your celebrating a leveling up, wanting to level up or have trauma that needs to be explored your Life Coach is the one person that can be that outside source for influence, feedback, and exploration of the events.
