If you’re asking, “Do I need a life coach?” you’re not alone. Making the decision to work with a certified life coach is a big one.

Mental health is also increasingly entering into general awareness with greater care and respect and is becoming less stigmatized and more accepted as a fundamental aspect of our overall well-being. You may already have been considering working with a life coach for a while now.
Tony Robbins one of the world leaders in the coaching industry mentions these 8 ways in which a life coach can help you achieve your dreams: 1. You feel lost, 2. You’re letting fear hold you back, 3. You think you’re not good enough, 4. You have self-destructive habits, 5. You want to be more decisive, 6. You can’t seem to focus, 7. You need better time management, 8. You’re facing a major transition. Here are 3 more scenarios that you may want to consider that professional coaching can help you with :
1. You’re stuck
Feeling unable to move or break free from any number of things, like a career or life you hate. You feel lost, uncertain of how to get unstuck and move to a place of happiness and fulfillment. This type of situation is frequently characterized by feelings of stress, anxiety and depression.
You recently got out of a relationship or gotten divorced. Starting over is both beautiful and frightening. Working with a life coach can help you re-discover the real you and help you avoid making the same mistakes in your next relationships.
3. Feeling Frustrated
You feel frustrated with life and believe you’re meant to do more and accomplish more. You want to change your life but don’t know where to start. A performance coach provides you with the guidance you need to make the necessary changes so you can rise to your full potential.
What does a Life Coach do?
So, what does a life coach do? The main aim of a life coach is to uncover the obstacles that are holding you back from accomplishing your goals or being fulfilled in life and selecting the best course of action to help you live the life you desire.
Life coaching refers to the equal partnership between you and the coach. You become a team. As the client, you verbalise your feelings and get your worries out in the open, and your transformational coach helps you integrate it and make sense of it all, free from judgement while providing guidance when you need it.
Together you will uncover and eliminate negative thinking patterns and destructive behaviours that are preventing you from reaching your goals.
Is life coaching worth the time and cost involved?
Whether life coaching is worth it for you depends on your personal needs and specific circumstances.
First, see if you are able to determine what exactly you need help with; for example it can be things like, motivation, your career, love life, finding work-life balance or discovering your real purpose.
Second, it’s essential to determine whether you need a life coach or a psychologist. Life coaching is a discovery-based process of your human potential. Psychology has its roots in the medical model, dealing with psycho-pathological disorders, often focusing on symptom suppression.
Third, Life coaching is one of the fastest growing industries in world, have you considered why? The simple answer is that a life coach can transform your life.
The deeper answer is that our modern culture creates and unwittingly perpetuates deep psychological problems for individuals. Personal development and self-awareness isn’t part of our education system, culture and society, and it should be. You never learned how your mind works, what your emotions are, how to listen to them and how they can help you transform and evolve. No one taught you how to process your feelings and emotions in a healthy way.
Our experiences shape our perception of the world and our identity. Your parents, teachers, guardians and role models taught you many things, but did they ever teach you how to discover who you truly are? And don’t get me wrong, this isn’t about pointing fingers and blaming, it’s about recognizing a problem in our understanding of who we are. We lack personal development training in our lives; this is made clear by the mere explosive growth in the coaching industry. Too often we quietly struggle with our inner challenges and don’t ask for help. Did you know that many people actually feel shame about asking for help, even when they really need it?
Our internal struggles become external ones. We develop harmful and destructive patterns of behaviour. No one wants to admit they are depressed, lonely, hurt or even worse vulnerable or helpless. No one wants to say their finances are a shambles or their relationship just isn’t working; and this list goes on. People are scared to first admit that they’re scared and then to actually seek out assistance. Most people worry about what others will think of them; like they’ve failed if they ask for help. This, however, is actually not true. It takes a massive amount of courage to actually admit to just how vulnerable we are. And being vulnerable is in reality a fact, not a matter of choice. Consider that for a moment.
