How many times have you tried a new career path, a new diet, or a new hobby, and yet nothing feels like it’s working out? Even though you’ve tried countless different options, you still end up feeling stuck. Almost everyone has experienced this frustrating feeling, regardless of their background, their current situation, or their goals. No matter what the particulars are of your life, the bottom line is that most individuals can benefit from having a life coach. In this post, we explain what a life coach is, why you want one, and what you can consider before choosing the best one for you.
A life coach is someone who can help you see where your life is right now while also helping you create a vision of where you want it to go and a plan to get there. Throughout the process, a life coach will not only help guide you, but they will provide you with the support you need throughout this journey. Unlike many other professions, life coaching is not regulated. That’s why it’s so important to do some research to find your ideal coach.
At the Co-Active Training Institute, we give our life coaches access to professional training with access to a certification program that has met stringent experience and education requirements. Our coaches demonstrate not only that they have a thorough understanding of the coaching competencies, but also that they adhere to strict ethical guidelines to protect the individuals they coach. If you are still grappling with the idea of a life coach, let us help you understand better what they can and cannot do.
Life coaches are not therapists. Their primary focus is on helping you with your future plans and finding ways you can fulfill your goals.
A life coach can add a lot of value to your life. However, in certain situations, a life coach may not be what you need.
Even though life coaches and therapists use similar techniques, a life coach is better suited to help you achieve your vision for the future and ask deep and meaningful questions to help you figure out what you truly want out of your life.
Before you head into your first life coach session, it is a good idea to be prepared. Often, coaches will provide you with a list of questions to fill out before your session so that they can have a basic understanding of who you are. This concept should work both ways. Having a list of questions you want to ask your life coach can make your session more rewarding and provide you with the information you need to make you feel more confident in your session. There are countless questions that you can ask your life coach. Here are some to consider:
What it boils down to is a life coach can help you get clear on what you want, help you identify what’s getting in your way, and get you to create a roadmap to align with where you want to go.

We are here to get you outside your comfort zone so you can tap into your own powerful wisdom that will launch you into living your best life.
