The short answer?
A life coach is a professional who helps you identify
and meet your goals.
Are you ready for the long answer?
Many people believe a life coach is a therapist or even worse, someone who identifies as a mental health worker yet doesn’t have a license. But a life coach is specifically goal oriented, not mental health focused.
What this means is that your life coach has a broader spectrum of life problems she/he can help you with verses a therapist solely helps you with mental health concerns.
Now here a some things to know when hiring your first life coach.
1) A professional life coach helps you identify your goals.
2) Next she/he helps you work through the root causes of your current limitations. What holds you back from being who you want to be in life?
3) Lastly your coach holds you accountable by empowering you with the habits, mindset, and skills to be able to accomplish your goals.
