what is life coaching?

In a basic sense Life Coaching is a partnership between the coach/therapist and the client where the coach helps you with various life aspects but gradually gives all the power back to you, the client. Although coaches are experts in the coaching process, you are the only expert in your own life.

The Life Coaching process may addresses specific personal projects, business successes, or general conditions and transitions in the client's personal life, relationships or profession. This is generally done by examining what is going on right now, and discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be. The last step in this process involves choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be.

Life Coaching is really just about breaking down and getting through barriers that prevent a desired change from happening. A Life Coach can give people the confidence and ability to move forward in areas of their life where they want change.

Clinical psychologists have specialist training and work with clients using theoretically grounded and scientifically validated techniques to help clients reach goals in their personal and business lives.


LIFE COACHING MAY HELP IF

Although people are sometimes reluctant to seek out a therapist or coach, successful people have been swearing by them for years. Our team of highly trained Townsville-based psychologists and psychiatrists are here to help figure out what you want to do with your life and importantly, they can help you to do it

HERE ARE A FEW SIGNS THAT COACHING PSYCHOLOGY MAY BE HELPFUL FOR YOU.

You feel lost. Life Coaches are really good at helping people find their way. Working with a Life Coach can help you to figure who you are and what you want out of life.

You want a change of profession. The guidance of a Life Coach can give you both the confidence and capacity to break out of that rut and make the leap you need to make.

Your friends are sick of hearing about your problems. Life Coaches are literally professionals at listening. Not only are they a fresh set of ears, but they will really listen to you and ask you the right questions to help you move forward in your life.

You procrastinate rather than ‘doing’. A lot of people spend too much time NOT doing the things they know they should be doing. Reaching your goals takes motivation, discipline, and hard work. A Life Coach can help you to stick to a schedule and change your negative patterns of behaviour. This will let you progress and achieve the life you want.

You don’t have time to waste. Life can be hectic and juggling commitments is time consuming. You don’t want to be wasting your precious time going around in circles when you could be out there achieving your goals and living the life you’ve always wanted. A Life can help you to find solutions faster by getting you to where you need to be as quickly as possible.

You’re unhappy. This is one of the most common complaints in life, and possibly the number one sign that a Life Coach could help you. A Life Coach can help you to take the steps needed to turn your life around and start being happy. People can be blind to the real reasons(s) for their own unhappiness. A Life Coach can help you to both acknowledge and address the true source of unhappiness.


SPECIFIC AREAS THAT COACHING CAN HELP

RELATIONSHIPS

Who doesn’t want a fulfilling relationship? If you’re not already in a romantic relationship, a Life Coach can help you to identify the kind of person you want to attract, and provide with you with strategies that will help you to achieve this goal. If you are in a relationship, a Life Coach can help you to find ways to be happy with your current partner.

FEAR

Often people want a change but are too scared to take the necessary steps to make it happen. If we’re honest, we’re all scared of something. Whether it be fear of failure, fear of success, fear of change, being afraid of the dark, or whatever it may be, you are certainly not alone. A Life coach can give you the tools you need to identify your fears and change the way you feel about them. Fear is always going to be there but what’s important is having the courage to stand up to it.

CONFIDENCE

Just like fear, a lack of confidence is something that everyone struggles with. Some people are just better at hiding it than others. Anyone that constantly doubts themselves or has little to no self-confidence could probably benefit from Life Coaching. A Life Coach can help you to get out of some difficult situations in your life and give you the confidence that will help you in all stages of life.It is a great tragedy for talent to go unrealized and unappreciated because of a lack of confidence.

FINANCE

It is very common for people to either want or need more money. It can be really tough to pursue your dream job when you are barely scraping by, and heavily dependent on what little money you are earning. A Life Coach can help you to make the money you want to be making while doing something you want to be doing. They can offer you the insight you need and direct to the resources that will allow you to make that shift into cruise control.
