Life Coach in St Albans & London
Why do you need a life coach?
The term ‘Life Coach’ became a thing sometime in the 1980s. It was a development from sports coaching, because it was realised that sports people derived so many benefits from coaching. It was seen as potentially huge value to people in general, to help them achieve more than they thought they could in life.
Life coaching is for you, when you are striving to achieve more with personal goals such as fitness, business, home life, relationships and all aspects of your life. Where you feel stuck with something, like your position at work, college or in business or with a project, a professional life coach will help you move forward.
‘Training alone can increase productivity by 22.4%, but when combined with weekly life coaching, productivity is boosted by 88%.’ – Anthony Robbins
Professional life coaches are qualified to promote self-discipline, motivation and to provide you with consistent encouragement. They will help you plan realistic and measurable routes to your goals and assist you in maintaining consistent action. You will help you to visualise your ideal outcome and work alongside you to help achieve that outcome.
How does it work?
Your life coach will initially spend time with you defining goals, whether they be personal, sporting or business goals, to ensure you are clear about where you want to go. They will ask ‘incisive questions’, designed to get you to think deeply about your values, belief systems and desires. They may challenge you on your responses to get you to explore certain beliefs about your desired direction and they will support your vision.
‘If it doesn’t challenge you it won’t change you.’ – Fred Devito
They will then design a step-by-step plan with you, and help you decide the validity of each step, highlighting potential or expected obstacles along the way. By doing this, you are able to prepare for any recognised issues in advance. There are also likely to be unexpected issues, for which your life coach will provide support and guidance.
Where your goals or desires change, your life coach will assist you in modifying your plan, to ensure you stay on the road. Your life coach will also help you to recognise milestones and to celebrate progress along the way.
How long will you need a life coach?
This is a difficult question to answer, because everyone is different. Typically, most clients remain for around a year, depending on their goals and plans, but some only need a few months’ life coaching and others may require more than a year.
