What is life coaching?
Life coaching is a special relationship between a professional coach and a client.
Life Coaching begins with an awareness that every human is born with the ability to be, do or have, whatever they want in life. By the time we become adults, many of us have lost this ability. But eventually, we experience the feeling that our lives are drifting off course and that there must be something better than this.
A Life Coach holds space for their clients and gives people confidence and the ability to move forward in a positive manner in the areas of their life where they crave change.
Life Coaching is about breaking down the barriers, which prevent this change from happening and creating the ideal environment for positive action to take place. It is a totally holistic approach which looks at the present and sets goals for a totally successful future.
What is the difference between life coaching and counselling?
Counselling is a past-focused discipline, in which the counsellor identifies the reasons for the person’s feelings and behaviours and offers ways to handle a particular issue. Unfortunately, this often gives the client a label, e.g. “I’m depressed”, which they use to justify their actions and thereby limit their ability to change.
Some clients come to us after experiencing counselling when they get tired of having reasons and excuses and want to move forward.
In life coaching, we do not dwell on the reasons, because we want to avoid this negative outcome. Instead, we focus on the future, because no matter what has happened in the past, any person can make it better and learn to achieve, grow and be happy.
What is the difference between life coaching and teaching or educating?
Education is typically about giving information or introducing knowledge and skills about specific topics. Some parts of our program consist of teaching – passing on the knowledge of human behaviour, success, and happiness. Many clients are very good at memorizing that knowledge and some of them already have that knowledge, yet they find it hard to use this knowledge to make a change.
Have you ever said, “I know what I need to do, but don’t know how?” How many times have you read an awesome book and said, “I will make a change NOW”, and after three days, you have lost that motivation? You are not alone. Many people experience the same thing.
Everyone can benefit from learning about the way our brain works and the theories and research available to help us achieve happiness. The knowledge is applicable to everyone, but not everyone can implement it.
Life coaching is more than teaching. It gives you the knowledge of what you need to do, the tools that help you do it and the support and guidance you need along the way until you gain control over your mind, body, and soul. Your life coach will stay with you as long as you want and help you implement those new skills.
Life coaching deals with the things that are important to you, not to anybody else. This makes life coaching incredibly effective, because you can see positive results right away and this encourages you to continue, so you get better and better results. At the same time, your confidence grows, until you feel you can handle just about anything, and then you are happy.
