Common questions about life coaching:

What is life coaching?

  • Life coaching is a profession that is different from consulting, counseling, or psychotherapy.
  • It is far more personal and broader in scope than consulting with a focus on all aspects of a person’s life. Unlike counseling or psychotherapy, a coach does not deal with issues from the past or emotional problems.
  • A life coach is trained to provide clients with tools and guidance to create rewarding personal and professional lives.
  • Life coaches create partnerships with people to help them develop a life vision and make that vision a reality.
  • Life coaching consists of an individualized program that helps people identify and achieve their goals and life vision.
  • Examples of areas where a person may benefit from coaching include: clarifying life’s purpose, values, and goals, having more energy, motivation, and balance in life, making better decisions, developing a new career path, improving work performance, improving relationships, overcoming procrastination and increasing productivity, and improving health and well-being.

How does coaching work and what do we provide as coaches?

  • Life coaching consists of in-person or telephone conversations that are designed to make a difference in the quality of your life (sessions can be in-person if you live in the Chicago area).
  • As a client, you determine the number of coaching sessions you want per month.
  • In the initial 1-3 sessions, we conduct an assessment of your needs and goals.
  • In our work together, we will identify your life goals and create a clear, actionable plan to meet those goals.
  • We will coach you to consistently take the actions necessary to make your goals a reality.
  • We will ask you many questions and guide you to use your own instincts and inner wisdom to make positive, tangible changes in your life.
  • We will coach you to look as situations and circumstances in your life in new ways.
  • We will support you to make important changes to your thinking, behavior, and emotions.
  • We offer coaching in English and Spanish.
  • Our work together is confidential.

Who hires a coach?

  • People who hire life coach are well functioning. They are people from many walks of life who have one thing in common- they believe that more is possible in their lives.
  • Common goals of people who hire a life coach are to identify and achieve life goals, achieve greater balance between personal and work life, improve effectiveness at work or in relationships, reduce stress, change careers, make a life transition, increase productivity, and reduce procrastination.
