The relationship between a coach and client is co-creative, meaning that both the coach and the client have an active role. The coach supports the client in setting achievable and meaningful goals (such as life transition goals, educational goals, career goals, emotional and physical health goals, relationship goals, etc) while serving as an objective accountability partner.
The role of the coach is to help the client utilize and maximize their resources so that they can grow and transform in ways they personally desire. To aid the client on this journey a life coach may offer various activities, resources, skills, and tools that can be used in sessions, as well as studied and reviewed between sessions. These tools are considered supportive material and help the client take actions towards their desired outcome.
The time in session is spent exploring and identifying activities, ideas, goals, and plans that help the client get clear on and reach their optimal health and well-being goals. Please remember that progress isn’t always even and that occasional setback and struggles are part of the growing process.
Life coaching is designed to focus on day-to-day issues and challenges that are non-clinical like major depression or clinical anxiety, etc. Life coaches do not diagnose nor treat any clinical disorders, they serve as highly trained, objective motivators and accountability partners. A coach's main role is to help you achieve your life and health goals through the use of various activities, resources, skills, and tools to aid you in discovering your purpose and setting realistic goals. A life coach will listen closely to you, respond to what they hear, and ask questions. They will also lovingly challenge you to stretch yourself in achieving your goals. A life coach may make recommendations on steps to take, but will never tell you what to do and you can always negotiate or decline a coach request. If you are looking to improve your day-to-day effectiveness at work, home, health, or relationships then a life coach may be a great fit for you.
