What is a life coach?
A life coach is a professional who is focused on helping their client’s find positive solutions to the challenges they are facing within their present day life.
Life coaches are generally goal oriented with a focus on client improvement through empowerment and practical skill building.
What type of client would benefit most from a life coach?
Clients who are self-motivated, well-adjusted, and able to manage fairly well through life’s general tasks would benefit most from a life coach.
When should I see a life coach?
If you recognize that there are specific areas of your life where you would benefit from some guided help and support, then you may want to consider teaming up with a life coach.
Life requires a wide variety of skill sets, along with honest self-reflection. No one has all of these at the ready all of the time. Life coaches can help provide tools and resources to increase your skill sets for living a healthier and happier life.
What is the difference between a life coach and a counselor?
A counselor is a licensed mental health professional who is able to make a diagnosis on a client’s mental health. The counselor considers the characteristics of the diagnosis and often works with the client to heal and remove the negative effects of the diagnosis’s characteristics. This process can include life long challenges and current upsets for the client. Counselor’s are also able to accept insurance.
A life coach is NOT a licensed mental health counselor, and CAN NOT make a diagnosis on a client’s mental health. Life coaches work with the client to bring forward specific goals. Life coaches seek to help their client find positive solutions to their current life challenges. Life coaches most often work within the present tense of a client’s life. Life coaches CAN NOT accept insurance.
As your Life Coach at Endless Possibilities Life Coaching Services, will I work with licensed mental health professionals?
I am very committed to the betterment of my clients. If I feel that my client’s needs require more professional services, such as a mental health counselor, I will make the recommendation to that client and stop our coaching sessions until a time when their mental health issues have been properly addressed.
In certain circumstances, I may work with a client who is also under the care of a licensed mental health counselor. I am also willing to coordinate my services with any licensed mental health professional for the benefit of my client.
Do I offer a free consultation?
At the present time, I am offering a free 15 – minute consultation to any new potential client. This consultation is offered as an in-office or phone consultation. Generally, this free consultation does need a scheduled appointment.
