What is life coaching?
A ‘coach’ or ‘carriage’ gets you to where you want to be. In life coaching we use the word ‘coach’ for someone who helps us to get from where we are now, to where we want to be in life. Life coaching has become popular as it helps people to claim back their power in every area of their life, from health, to relationships, to education, to finances and career building.
What can a life coach do?
A coach empowers people to reach any goal, dream or objective and helps people to overcome inner obstacles (like fear, self worth and procrastination). Individuals can be coached on any topic e.g. life goals, work and career aspirations, relationships, financial freedom, wellness, personal growth and inner obstacles, dream building, etc. Life coaches help their clients to find their own best solutions.
What happens in a life coaching session?
A professional coach guides conversations or meetings, in such a way that the client establishes clear goals, (dreams, aspirations, objectives) and finds their own solutions, action plans, insights and clarity about how to reach that goal. The client is accountable for their own journey and commitment to their planned actions. As coaches, we don’t offer our solutions or our ideas about what the client should do.
How long is a life coaching session and where do sessions take place?
A session is usually 60 minutes. Sessions can be once-off or part of a package – weekly or monthly – short, medium or long term – according to your need. I am based in Durban, South Africa, but as all coaching is done on-line in the comfort of your own home or office I am available to coach anyone worldwide.
