Frequently Asked Questions about Coaching
Life Coaching is foremost an agreement and a relationship. One person with skill-sets, expertise and explorative technologies meets with another in the commitment of drawing out empowerment and strategies for moving forward. The conversations have the hope of exploring unseen perspectives, overcoming obstacles and deciding on the best path forward.
Life coaching is not therapy. Life coaches are not psychologists or psychotherapists. Life coaches focus on the present and the client’s goals for the future. We help people move forward and set personal and professional goals that will give them the life, relationship and career they really want. Most coaching clients are healthy, successful people who want to be more grounded, focused or simply want to make a big change in their lives and want the support of a coach to do so.
Life coaching often includes principles from sports coaching, such as being your best, doing more than you think you can, working with a team, going for the goal. But unlike sports coaching, most professional coaching is not a competition. Your own Life Coach will help you win in your own life!
If there is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be, then there is room for a bit of life coaching. Why struggle on your own when you can get what you want out of life in a fraction of the time with the structure, support, and tools of a skilled life coach.
Life Coaching offers an unprecedented period of focus, growth and motivation. People we’ve coached say they “feel alive and awake” in their lives. The awareness generated through coaching has them seeing new pathways toward their goals and undaunted in the face of challenge.

Some Life Coaches narrow their services to encompass a specific field of life. While our Life Coaches often help our clients navigate huge life challenges, and even monumental upsets- we work with our clients toward an integrated life. We know the components of our lives are not as isolated as many believe they are – when we integrate our lives, we become less goal and plans oriented, and instead, move towards fulfillment. A person who engages life by leading with their purpose, begins to respond to all of life circumstance with a deep sense of courage. Our coaches aim to get you their – standing tall, responsive and fearless.
We’ve been taught that “hard work and doing it on your own” are the keys to finding life, success, money, or happiness. Most people believe they must sacrifice something to attain what they want. Some people sacrifice their health, their time to enjoy life, or their relationships. None of this is necessary. You can have it all, but maybe not all right this minute! And, with life coaching, you’ll find you don’t have to sacrifice anything to get what you want. You may need to change a few things, true, but clients typically find they have more time with their families and friends, more money, more opportunities, and are more successful at work or in their businesses when they work with a professionally trained coach—whether that is a business coach, a personal coach, an executive coach or a life coach. Athletes, performers, CEO’s and presidents know that they can’t do it alone. They know they need a trained professional or even a team of experts to help them determine the best direction and to provide objective support and feedback. Without this, it is almost impossible to achieve excellence.
No athlete would consider going to the Olympics without the support of a coach. The extra edge the coach provides makes all the difference. Why shouldn’t you have this same advantage in your own personal and professional life? Sign up for Coach Yourself to Success online or talk to an accredited Life Coach today — you’ll be amazed at the results you’ll get!
People have managed just fine in the past without a life coach. So in one sense nobody really needs a life coach, but many people want one! One of the reasons there is a growing demand for life coaching is the complexity of modern day life. Things aren’t as simple as they were in the past. And, whereas your parents might have been happy to have a job that paid the bills, most people today want a job that is personally fulfilling and financially rewarding. They want to find work that is in line with their core values and is an expression of who they are. Never before in history has mankind had such an incredible opportunity for self-expression through one’s work. If you aren’t doing what you love to do, even if you are successful, you would benefit from some coaching. I certainly did! Are you doing what you most enjoy? Are you tolerating or putting up with anything? Is life easy or are you struggling? Are you on the path to financial independence? Do you have what you really want? Most people can expect a lot more out of their lives.
I thought I’d start writing when I retired at sixty-five. Thanks to my first coach, I wrote my first book, Coach Yourself to Success at thirty. Coaching really speeds things up so hold on to your hat when you hire a personal coach, a business coach, an executive coach or a life coach.
Yes. Often times a person initially comes to Life Coaching in order to resolve or complete a specific intention. During that time, the process of coaching offers them growth and expansion that was initially unexpected.
