WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?
Coaching is a relationship – more precisely, a synergistic collaboration type of relationship with your coach. At the same time, it is a short to medium-term commitment towards yourself to get unstuck, work on your goals, overcome your fears, and activate all your available resources in order to achieve your dreams.
Life coaches focus on assisting their clients in conquering the obstacles of their current life. This is a process based on mutual trust, where the client is encouraged to move forward in the right direction with the help of positive goals.
Life coaching is distinct from giving advice, consulting, counseling, mentoring, or administering therapy. You would hire a coach to help you with specific professional projects, personal goals, and transitions.
WHY SHOULD YOU DO IT?
Below you can find the most common benefits for contracting life coaching services. Cannot resonate with any of them? No worries, contact me and we’ll start from there.
You are facing a completely energy-draining situation. You are either dealing with challenging situations regarding your personal or professional life, or you have too many options and want to find the right direction for you. Life coaching can definitely help you discover the optimal path for figuring and pursuing your plans.
You are in a situation where you need to make a decision that could have a great impact on your life. Yet, you are not really sure what to do, or you can’t get to figure all the options. A coach can help you gain a clear vision of what you can do next when you lack clarity regarding your future.
Whether you’re making a new career move, changing your relationship status, starting a business or planning to move abroad – you’re facing a significant life transition. Oftentimes friends and family do not fully understand our choices and their support is not really helpful or it does not exist. A coach can provide the support you need in such situations and help you navigate the uncertainty and fears that come with big changes.
Do you feel like your life doesn’t seem like yours anymore? Are you feeling estranged, as if you’re living someone else’s life path? Have you stopped following your own rules and values without even realizing it until all of a sudden? All of these may be indicators of a life crisis, and life coaching can definitely help you navigate it and put you in touch with your authentic self again.
With the help of a life coach, you are basically setting aside some personal time, allowing yourself to stop, reflect about what’s currently happening in your life. You will also discover what your options are, which one is the best for you, and how to proceed, while the coach makes sure you are and stays on the right track and keeps you accountable for your progress.
You’ve realized you wish and need to develop some new skills in order to be a better professional, to handle management tasks more effectively, or to discover other abilities and hobbies which may improve the overall quality of your life.
You want to level up your life and have made the decision to give up everything that is holding you back or can be detrimental to your health. The coach helps you set achievable goals and makes sure you constantly work on them and achieve significant progress.
THE PROCESS STEP BY STEP
Here is how our coaching relationship is going to unfold. Are you ready?
Step 1 – Initial contact
You contact me via your preferred channel: social media, email, call.
Step 2 – First interaction
We establish a first call or meeting to get acquainted and understand the context of your situation. (Recommended read: What happens in the first session).
Step 3 – The decision
You decide if you want to work together and we sign the contract.
Step 4 – First session
Also called the Breakthrough session. We’ll sit together and unwrap your current situation to understand where you are at, where you’d like to be, by when and how. We’ll set the goals and objectives of our collaboration and create a plan.
Step 5 – Ongoing Sessions
We meet for 1h/session at your desired frequency and we make the most out of our time together by getting you closer to the goal.
Step 6 – The work
It’s not enough to just attend the meetings. If you’d like to see real progress, you’ll have to put in real work. There will be exercises and assignments between the sessions. Are you ready to make time for them? Are you motivated enough?
Step 7 – Measure results and accountability
We’ll constantly measure the results and I will be there to keep you focused and accountable for the goals you’ve taken responsibility for. If obstacles come up, we’ll work through them together.
Step 8 – Redo the plan and repeat the process
Working on a solution/an idea doesn’t mean it will be successful every time. If the initial plan doesn’t bring the expected results, we’ll assess the situation and redo the plan until you will find the best solution for you.
