Can a life coach really help? On which areas can it make you feel better? What is the purpose of having a life coach?
Definition of a life coach
A life coach helps to cope with a situation encountered on a personal or professional level. We can call on a life coach at the arrival of a particular event such as a divorce or a dismissal, but also to get out of an existential crisis, boredom or lack of meaning.
The life coach wants to solve the problem as soon as possible. He is more interested in the present to build the future, not only the past. It is usually done on a short period.
Advance on his personal and professional life
Most life coaches have their specialty but they can offer their guidance both in the professional and personal life.
Here are some topics that you can work with a life coach:
Diagnose the source of problem at work and find solutions
Prevent or recover from a burn out (exhaustion), or a bore out (boredom), or a lack of meaning
Find a different professional path
Rebuild after a separation, avoid repeating the same emotional patterns in the future
Improve your relationship with spouses, colleagues and/or family
Learn to better manage your time
Worry less, be less affected by the annoyances of everyday life
Strengthen your self esteem and self-confidence
If you think about a topic that is not in this list, feel free to contact a life coach to know if he can accompany you on this theme.
Usefulness of a life coach
Getting the guidance from a life coach can help you get out of a situation in which you have been going around for too long. At one point, we have to admit that we are having trouble moving forward unaccompanied. To be accompanied by a life coach is the assurance of moving forward, with more ease. It is to give yourself every chance to remove the thorn from the foot and not to recoil before the problem that “eats” us every day. Indeed, the deadlines set with the life coach motivate and “forces” you to move forward!
It is also very important to feel supported, to be able to evacuate your annoyances, as well as mental burden. Indeed, the life coach writes (together with you) your personalised action plan to be happier!
