Working with a Life Coach

Change is a constant in life. Some changes occur through conscious choice; others offer unexpected challenges. How you deal with change determines, to a large extent, the amount of happiness you experience. Sometimes it is helpful to have a guide on the side, providing help with the myriad of choices and decisions that need to be made. When the reasons for making specific decisions are traced back, a fundamental discovery emerges. Almost all decisions come from a place of fear or a place of love deep within the person. A coach can help you make more love-based decisions; conscious decisions that move you toward your personal vision of the life you want to live.

Life coaches can help with facing changes in life; such as

  • A big events: graduations, weddings, retirements
  • An illness of yourself or a loved one
  • The death of a loved one
  • Beginning a relationship
  • Ending a relationship
  • An empty nest
  • A change of location or a move
  • A change of career or job
  • Any type of loss
  • A “decade birthday” -  30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, etc.

Other reasons for meeting with a life coach include: support in decision making;

a desire to make a change in your body size (either lose or gain weight); or a sense of restlessness; a sense of malaise.

  1. This is a great definition of life coaching. I think we all need one at crucial times in our lives. It's always good to get an expert opinion outside of your own thoughts on the matter.

  2. I agree with Shelley. It is necessary to have affirmation within one's self, but also, at times, coming from a trusted professional. That boost can make a huge difference if I am struggling, for whatever reason. You are so well-versed and make yourself accessible. I am certain your clients will benefit hugely from "Paths 4 Change" ( and your expertise!
