Life Coaching is essentially a non-directive form of development. Successful coaching is based on an understanding and belief that people are the sum of their genes, their experience and the circumstances of their lives.
A personal coach helps you to look at your problems objectively and helps you to then set goals and ultimately to achieve them. You look at where you are now and where you want to be in the future. Together with your coach you will develop your action plan and set goals which will enable you to get where you wish to go. Your coach will then go on to help you to stick to your action plan whilst encouraging you to reach your goals.
Coaching requires a shared trust, equality and empathy between the client and the coach. To be successful it requires the client's desire to work on the future whilst acknowledging the effects of the past. The client also needs to be willing to work through issues and make changes that will help towards a more self-confident and productive life.
