What is a Life Coach?
A life coach is someone who is professionally trained to help you achieve your full potential and desired goals. Life coaching helps you to identify your current situation and what you want in your life. With guidance and encouragement, a life coach works with you to bring about change for the outcomes you want.
Life coaches help you grow by identifying limiting beliefs and other obstacles that hold you back and by devising a plan of action to move you forward in the right direction. With the help of a life coach you will pursue your personal and professional goals in a full, balanced and meaningful way.

Life Coaching Brings Clarity
In order to succeed in your professional or personal life you need to know what exactly you are looking for and what your goals are. We all want to be happy, successful, and enjoy our life, but happiness, success, and satisfaction mean different things to different people. In order to actually enjoy your life, you need to have a clear understanding of what these notions mean to you. Life coaching will bring clarity to all situations in your life and help you find direction.
We are all conditioned by the society in which we live. Society in large as well as our immediate circle of family, friends, colleagues, and community have a big impact on our perception of things.
Oftentimes we feel under the pressure to fit in within groups of people and it might make our vision blurry, and move us away from our authentic self. We are no longer sure what we are looking for, what’s good or bad for us; we lose motivation, and don’t enjoy our lives. We don’t understand why things aren’t going the way we wish. Even when we get what we were looking for we don’t enjoy it, and soon we are running after the next thing. Life coaching is all about working things out, enabling you to gain clarity and make confident decisions that bring positive changes to your life.

and so they don’t find themselves at all.”
Is Life Coaching Therapy?
No, it is not. The difference between therapy and life coaching is that therapy is focused on healing emotional trauma coming from the past – and on mental health in general – while life coaching focuses on defining and reaching specific goals (the present moment and the future).
