What happens during a life coaching session?
Each life coaching session may be different depending on the goals and needs of the person. At first, we’ll discuss what you want to accomplish through working together and lay out a plan on how to achieve your goals. Occasionally, I’ll also give you assignments to help you direct your progress. We’ll work together to discover what obstacles are in your way and figure out how to overcome them. With each session, we’ll revisit your goals and see what steps are needed to achieve them.
Life Coaching vs. Therapy
Life coaching is different than therapy in that its focus is not in overcoming your psychological issues. The purpose of life coaching is to help you identify your goals and achieve them. With life coaching, very little emphasis is placed on the past. Instead, our focus is on creating the life that you want now and in the future.
Will our conversations remain confidential?
While the law does not grant the privilege of confidentiality to life coaches, what we discuss will not be shared with others. Life coaching is a confidential process and must remain so in order for it to be successful.
