Life coaching FAQs
What is a life coach?
A Life Coach is a qualified professional that will provide a safe and empowering environment for people to explore any challenges they are facing. They can help you figure out what you want in life and how to achieve it. They’ll be your cheerleader, your mentor – empowering you to stay motivated and focused to help you live your best life. They will not tell you what to do, instead, the coach will help and guide you to take steps towards meeting and exceeding your personal and professional goals.
Your personal life coach will support you on a journey to rediscover your strengths and to become the best version of you. They will be a guide to uncovering possibilities and help you to identify areas of limitation or obstacles that could be hindering you. Developing self-awareness of this can be the first step to help change this and enable you to fulfil more of your potential.
What happens in a life coaching session?
During the session, your coach will ask you questions, exploring what you want to achieve in life, what areas you're unhappy with and where you'd like to see yourself in the future (what does great look like).
Your life coach will offer support and provide feedback to help you to stay motivated and focused on your goals and will occasionally set you tasks and objectives to work on outside of sessions. What you choose to discuss in your sessions will be personal to you, but some useful areas to explore might be:
- How to identify roadblocks to achieving your true potential
- Setting practical and achievable goals
- Encouragement to develop new skills
- Identifying and maximising your strengths
- Have a better understanding of how our actions affect our lives
- Creating a greater sense of purpose
- Steps to having healthier physical and mental wellbeing
- Creating a calmer and more balanced disposition
- Developing better workplace, social and family relationships
- Reducing workplace tensions
- Positive career and workplace choices
- Improving your reactions to stressful situations
- Achieving a healthier work/life balance
Everyone that goes through life coaching will leave with a toolkit, packed full of useful resources to help them confidently face any future life challenges.
How long are the sessions?
Coaching sessions typically last between 30-60 minutes and are usually delivered weekly over the phone or via video call. You can have up to 10 sessions of life coaching, depending on your personal needs.
