What is Life Coaching, anyway?
Have you ever felt that your life is “stuck” in an important way, and that you need a better plan like a roadmap, in order to get you to where you want to be? What would you like to change? Think of a life coach as a “personal trainer” for your mind, who can help you climb that mountain. The life coaches at Families in Focus, although they are counselors, have additional professional education that they use to identify the obstacles in your current path and give you guidance to help you reach your objectives.
After an initial meeting between the life coach and client, the coach helps customize a plan to meet the needs of the client, and the two agree on a goal, an approximate number of sessions for attaining the goal, and a schedule for future sessions, which usually run for about 30 minutes and take place by phone, in order to provide greater flexibility and convenience. “Homework” is likely to be assigned between sessions, to build the skills that will increase the likelihood of success.
