Life Coaching is not the same as consulting, therapy, or counselling. While the above-mentioned typically deals with mental illness and struggles, life coaching approaches certain personal projects, business decisions as well as overall conditions and transitions in the life of the client. Identifying obstacles and choosing the best course of action will help you live the life you’ve dreamed of.
The focus of coaching is on action, whereas counselling focuses on coping. Coaching aims to help you identify what you think, while counselling aims to help you identify what you feel. Coaching is the process of setting and achieving goals whereas counselling is the process of identifying and solving life’s problems.
The purpose of a life coach is to inspire and guide you with your aspirations and goals and to help you figure out the necessary changes you need to make to achieve them.
A great life coach will motivate and support you, providing you with the strength to achieve greater things than you’ve ever imagined possible. In partnership with you, you will be able to uncover and eliminate negative thinking patterns and destructive behaviours that prevent you from reaching your goals.
