What is Life Coaching?

In general, a coach is someone who advocates for self-improvement, as opposed to giving you all the answers or giving you advice.

A fundamental part of life coaching is reassessing your core beliefs and thought patterns. It's about understanding yourself and the obstacles between you and your dreams or goals.

In most cases, life coaching is working with your present self, looking forward to your future self, and who that person is. First, we address the obstacles, blockages, and challenges between your current and future self. Once we've determined that, the next step is to determine how to generate your version of success. We plan out a pathway to become the version of yourself you want to become, then actively assist you in achieving your desired results.

What is the difference between
Life Coaching and Therapy

A therapist or counselor's primary focus is dealing with past events affecting your present. Sometimes they may work on current or future progress, whereas a life coach will do the opposite. Life coaches will focus on current to future events, sometimes addressing the past, to understand underlying conditions that are affecting the present you.


It would be more effective to seek a therapist to help you heal from past trauma and follow up with a life coach to help you progress in your life. However, you may need to engage with a life coach initially if you're still experiencing trauma to help change your mindset and realize you need a therapist.


The History of Life Coaching

No definitive point in history can attribute to the birth of life coaching. However, recorded history shows evidence of leadership, mentorship, and self-improvement. Life coaching, as it's known today, was popularized in the 1980s. The coaching role started in the sporting field and moved into the business world.

The apparent similarities between the performers of a sporting team and that of a business team led to the growth of coaching in a business setting. Initially, it was exclusively for senior executives and directors. Still, it proved valuable through all employment levels, usually team building, leadership development, and management. It is easy to transition from a group element into an individual facet and a life aspect by applying the same concepts of relationships, careers, finances, health, and other forms of self-development.
Present-day life coaching combines old ideas with new techniques and innovations to address relevant challenges of the 21st century.
