What is a Life Coach?
A life coach is someone who has accumulated life experiences and learnings and is in a position to help others. Assisting others to make changes in their own life, as the client wants to move in another direction, they need support, someone who has already walked that path. A life coach can come from any discipline or be any age, depends on their own maturity and ability to be non judgemental in the changing process and not be emotionally attached. They are change facilitators and see the ‘best’ version of you, they believe in your transformation and in your goals. They directly inspire you to be the best you can be as they hold themselves accountable in their own lives and live congruently, in alignment with their core values.
A great life coach will make you feel comfortable and ready to tackle any obstacle in front of you, they are alongside you every step of the way (if need be). You hired this coach for a reason and this coach accepted this coaching relationship to give you the best.
A life coach has gone through professional training to facilitate coaching sessions, they have learned the tools to maximise each session and be your ally. They have invested in their profession to offer you an excellent service. After all you change yourself and you change the world...
