What Questions Do Life Coaches Ask? What to Expect from Your First Session

Your first life coach session is an opportunity to get to know your coach and determine if they are the right fit for you. It can also be a time to gain insight into what working with a life coach will look like. During your first session, your coach will likely ask you a few questions to get to know you and to help you identify your goals and objectives. 

Life coaches typically ask questions that are open-ended and thought-provoking. Some questions you might be asked during your first session include:

  • What motivated you to seek out a life coach? 
  • What do you hope to gain from working with a life coach? 
  • What areas of your life do you want to focus on? 
  • What challenges have you encountered in your life? 
  • What strengths do you have that you can use to help you reach your goals? 
  • What do you think are the biggest obstacles in achieving your goals?
  • What have you done in the past that was successful in helping you reach a goal?
  • What do you think you need the most help with?
  • What resources do you have available to help you reach your goals?

Your coach will also take the time to discuss their approach and philosophy so that you can get a better understanding of how they work. They may also provide you with exercises or tools to help you identify and clarify your goals. 

The most important part of your first life coach session is that you feel comfortable and confident that this is the right person to help you reach your goals. Your coach should be someone you trust, who listens to your concerns and ideas, and who has a plan for helping you succeed. 

Remember, the role of a life coach is to help you become your own best advocate. With the right coach and the right plan, you can achieve any goal you set for yourself.
