What is Life Coaching?

Not exactly sure what life coaching is?

Life Coaching takes people from where they are now to where they want to be, the results can be stunning. A life coach gives people the confidence and ability to move forward in a positive manner in the areas of their life where they crave change. It is a totally holistic approach that looks at the present and sets goals for a successful future. It’s not counselling or consulting – it’s a different intervention altogether.

You don’t need any academic qualifications to be a life coach…It’s more important that:

  • You are more interested in people than in things
  • You truly want to help others
  • You are determined, committed and willing to learn
  • You see the best in people – even when others don’t
  • You get frustrated when people don’t see their own potential
  • You are probably the sort of person people come to for help and advice
