How Does Life Coaching Work?

How Does Life Coaching Work?

Life Coaching with an expert life coach is a structured process of figuring out who you are and what you want, what obstacles have been holding you back, learning what to do to overcome them, taking positive action, and them maintaining your gains over the long haul. Here’s more in-depth information about what the process looks like at Growing Self Counseling and Life Coaching…

Phase 1 of Life Coaching: Assessment

The first step in good Life Coaching is to figure out who you really are— your strengths, your personality, your values, and the vision you have for your life. When we’re clear about what you want and have specific goals in mind, we can move on to understanding what you need to create lasting change.

Phase 2 of Life Coaching: Uncovering Obstacles

This is the deep part of coaching, where we look at the obstacles that have been holding you back from making the changes you desire. These can be inner obstacles, like unhelpful core beliefs or ineffective strategies. Sometimes there are obstacles outside yourself that need to be dealt with before you can move forward.

Phase 3 of Life Coaching: Planning

When you understand who you are, where you want to go, and the obstacles in your way, you can make a plan of action. This plan usually involves learning new strategies to deal with obstacles– both inner and outer. When you learn how to do things differently, you get better results.

Phase 4 of Life Coaching: Action and Accountability

By the time we get to the action phase, you’ll know exactly what to do. In every coaching session you will get a new strategic “assignment” to carry out, and take the action that will move you forward. The purpose of your life coach is to act as your  accountability partner, keeping you motivated… until you learn how to keep yourself motivated.

Phase 5 of Life Coaching: Integration

You become your own coach. You apply everything that you’ve learned from our work to your new goals, and independently continue on your upward spiral of success.

The Time is Right.

Motivation opens and shuts like a door. It’s open right now. As a result of your thinking, “What I’m doing now isn’t working. Something has to change.” It already has— you are already taking action, and trying something different. You’re googling around for life-coaches, and you found us. If you seize this opportunity and get connected with us before it closes again, your forward momentum can continue.

Just knowing that you were going to ask me about my homework made me do it. I did things with you that I couldn’t do on my own.
