When You Should Hire A Life Coach

When Something Wonderful And Exciting Has Happened

Changes in life, even when they are for the better, can be exciting, challenging, terrifying and disorientating – all at the same time. A decision in one aspect of your life inevitably causes ripple effects in others. A new job, for example, could affect your health, relationships, where you live as well as how you spend your free time.

Transitions often make us re-examine our sense of who we are or the capabilities we’ve taken for granted. It can be painful to let go of what you know, especially if you feel you ‘should’ be incredibly happy and you aren’t. Working with the right life coach can help you to examine the constructs and inner worlds you’ve created in the past.

It is a life coach’s job is to ask questions which shift a client’s thinking because if you cannot help a client see things in a different light, then change is not going to happen. It sounds simple, but it’s very difficult and the desire (especially among newer life coaches) to dive in and offer advice can be intense.

Many people think life coaches advise their clients what to do. Any life coach who slips into that mode is no longer a coach but a mentor or teacher.
