What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a collaborative and confidential relationship between a coach and client. The relationship is designed to empower the clients to make responsible decisions and take charge of their lives. The power of the relationship comes from the client’s motivation and desire for personal growth and the coach’s commitment, skills, and knowledge of change. Each client comes to coaching with a unique set of circumstances, abilities, and challenges which may include, but not be limited to concern in the following areas:

  • Career Goals
  • Life Transitions
  • Performance Improvement
  • Personal Relationships
  • Managing Life’s Daily Demands

Professional life coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Life Coaching is not therapy, coaching is about changing your actions in order to create movement towards your goals. Where as therapy is thoughts and feelings that impact your action. The coach’s job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources and creativity of the client. Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to bring forth solutions and strategies from the client. Imagine a time set apart to focus on you and your goals. Consider the difference it would make if you spent time weekly exploring the unique plan that God has just for you.
