Coaching is a professional service offered by a certified life coach that partners with the client to help the person meet a given need.
Unlike consultations or therapy, coaching involves partnering with a client in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize his or her personal and professional potential.
Coaching is often used as an alternative or adjunct to counseling and spiritual direction. Individuals that benefit from coaching are those who typically already have some degree of success, but have hit a roadblock hindering them from moving forward. Hence, coaching helps the individual to bridge the gap between where they are presently and where they desire to be.
Coaching provides the tools, support, resources, and accountability required to make and maintain the desired transformation in life such as healthier eating/sleeping habits, exercising, as well as time/stress management to name a few.
