What is Life Coaching?

Home » Life Coaching » What is Life Coaching?

Just as sports coaching enables athletes to hone themselves into the fastest, strongest, most tactical competitors in their disciplines, life coaching helps people from all professional and personal backgrounds improve their strengths and build upon their weaknesses to make the most of their lives.

A life coach is not a therapist nor should he or she attempt to dish out advice because, firstly – giving advice is just a way of imposing a personal view of the world onto another person (who may or may not share the same view) and, secondly – it is not a life coach’s job to become personally involved in a client’s life. Life coaching is about objectivity, structure and empowerment, not instruction or indoctrination.

Life coaching is based on three basic principals:

A) Subjectivity: we all have different perspectives of the world – no one perspective is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, but some perspectives are restrictive and can stop a person becoming who they want to be.

B) Empowerment: it is within everyone’s capability to adjust the limits of their own perspective. With the help of life coaching, anyone can learn to open their mind if they wish.

C) Guidance: there is a difference between an instructor and a guide. An instructor shows a person exactly what to do, whereas a guide provides the tools and support a person needs to do something for themselves. A life coach is a guide, not an instructor.
