A life coach assists people who want to make significant changes in their lives. Certified professional coaches have the privilege and responsibility of empowering, mentoring, encouraging, and motivating clients to identify their goals and objectives, develop plans, and continue on their path toward self-improvement, balance and achievement. Using a life coach can be compared to having your own personal trainer. Personal and professional coaching is an ongoing relationship that helps clients make empowered and informed decisions.
Life coaches are not typically licensed therapists; thus, psychological intervention is outside the scope of their work. Life coaches draw inspiration from disciplines such as sociology, psychology, positive adult development, career counseling, Neuro-Linquistic Programming (NLP), mentoring, and other types of counseling. Life coaches and their clients meet via phone or in person. Life coaches provide support to overcome the stress derived from change; they celebrate clients’ successes; and they hold them accountable. With a certified professional coach, clients receive unwavering support to attain measurable results.
