What is holistic life coaching?
Life coaching helps people meet goals in their lives by guiding them in the right direction. Holistic life coaching works with your physical well-being, your thoughts, your emotions, your spirit, and your intuition to help you create the life you want.
People have been turning to friends and family for help and guidance for years. Life coaching is a professional extension of that help. You may have turned to a friend who you consider to be "wise" when it comes to making key decisions or overcoming problems. But friends may not always have the answers or may not be sufficiently objective about a situation to give decent advice. Life coaches are trained to help you see your life from a different perspective and give you the confidence to move forward.
The aim of life coaching is to help people break their negative belief patterns, act more decisively, and set clear goals towards achieving what they want from life. Most coaches are trained as generalists, but many also specialize in areas such as relationships, stress, personal growth, business, careers, motivation, finances, creativity, and family—among many others.
The bottom line is that by working with a coach, you can set better goals and reach them faster than if you tried to reach them on your own. Ultimately, you can really only measure the success of life coaching if you achieve the success or happiness that you’re seeking. Your success relies on your commitment to the process and acting on it.
