What is Life Coaching

Updated: Sep 5, 2019

Life Coaching is a practice based on the relationship between a client and a professionally qualified Life Coach. The aim is to help client's determine and achieve personal goals. Life Coaching draws inspiration from disciplines including sociology, psychology, positive development, mentoring and other types of counselling.


A Life Coach may apply mentoring, values assessment, behaviour modification, goal setting and other cognitive techniques to support the process. Whilst it is often compared to therapy and counselling, 'coaching' aims towards looking at the bigger picture as well as the growth and personal development of an individual. Life Coaching (when under the care of an experienced Coach) will provide you with the vital tools that enable you to work towards harmony and balance in your life, as well as planning for the future.

When a Life Coach and client work together, they create a plan with customised objectives and activities for achieving the client’s goal. Clients collaborate their progress and celebrate achievements with their Life Coach, who motivates them in regularly scheduled sessions until they reach their goal(s).

Personal goals could vary from losing weight, to feeling happier, improving confidence and self-esteem, achieving business goals, starting a family, relationship support or making a monumental career change.


Here's the Top 10 reasons why you should work with a qualified Life Coach.
