What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a collaborative and confidential relationship between a coach and client.  The relationship is designed to empower the clients to make responsible decisions and take charge of their lives. The power of the relationship comes from the client's motivation and desire for personal growth and the coach's commitment, skills, and knowledge of change.  Each client comes to coaching with a unique set of circumstances, abilities, and challenges which may include, but not be limited to concern in the following areas:

  • Career Goals
  • Life Transitions
  • Performance Improvement
  • Personal Relationships
  • Managing Life’s Daily Demands

Benefits from Life Coaching

Individuals who benefit from Life Coaching are those:

  • Who have a strong desire to be in charge of their lives
  • Who want to experience personal growth and improvement
  • Who are committed to the process
  • Who are willing to take action
  • Who are willing to be held accountable

The Role of the Coach

The relationship between the individual and the coach is both confidential and collaborative. The coach is not a problem solver, but a facilitator who helps the individual find a way to experience more fulfillment and balance in daily life. The life coach is always honest with the individual, listens to hear resonance and dissonance, and asks powerful questions designed to lead to a deeper understanding of self and to motivate the individual to action. The coach may lead the client in one or more of the following activities:

  • Seeing, owning, and living one’s true self
  • Clarifying/Indentifying values and goals
  • Designing a plan for achieving the goals
  • Developing strategies to move forward toward the realization of goals
  • Identifying obstacles/actions that sabotage plans and dreams
  • Discovering life balance and self-management

Coaching ADD/ADHD/LD Individuals

In addition to the above, the ADD/ADHD/LD life coach does the following:

    • Understanding the characteristics and effects of ADD/ADHD/LD and how to separate the diagnosis from the person
    • Designing a plan for organization of time, materials, and information
    • Managing impulsivity and distractibility
    • Dealing with the feeling of being overwhelmed
