Some people hear the words Life Coaching and think that this is not for them. But what actually is Life Coaching and what benefits will you gain?
In today’s busy world with everyone juggling their personal life, their work commitments and family commitments, everyone is striving to do the best they can. Sometimes we can get caught up in everything and lose track of our goals and where we are heading. No wonder with pressure coming at us from all angles these days!
Life Coaching is sessions with a therapist trained to assist you to bring out the best in yourself, regain clarity and bridge the gap of where you are now to where you want to be. It is basically talk therapy.
This can be so important, being able to talk to a therapist in confidential settings and take a look at things from a different perspective. Some clients are stuck in their lives and feel unable to talk to their nearest and dearest for many different reasons, just having a connection where they are in a safe place and able to talk freely is so important for our wellbeing! You don’t want to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders! Issues that we cannot work through or let go can manifest as stress or illness in our bodies and we already know that ultimately stress is a killer!!
Not only are you able to air any problems you may have but you are also able to assess where you are in life and make positive steps to get to where you want to be. You will be taken on a journey to find out what the important things to you are and some will be surprised to realise that the direction they thought they wanted to head in is not actually what they want at all! For others it may just be a case of choosing their future path, going through all options and getting past the crossroads they are at.
The benefits from Life Coaching can be life changing. You will get out of it what you put in. You have to be willing to work with the coach and be open to change to get the best results. You will be guided to carve out your path that is what you actually want and take an in depth analysis of where life is now and where you want to be. Sometimes we are just stuck and this nudge can be all we need to bring positive changes and get back on track.
Once you have made the decision to go ahead with Life Coaching you then have to choose a coach.
Here are a few tips to help:
- Look for someone in your area or nearby area if you want to visit in person. Some coaches do skype sessions which some clients find easier thus you can choose from further afield.
- Consider the cost it has to work financially for you.
- Have a consultation with the coach before you book to ensure you feel able to work with the coach after all you are going to be sharing some of your life with them and you have to feel comfortable.
- Ensure your coach is a qualified professional you want to get the best results and a trained therapist will want this for you also.
As a Life Coach there is nothing more rewarding than seeing your client reach their goals and unleash their full potential! Life Coaching is an investment in YOU and to just know you have someone on your side and help you gain the clarity you are looking for, empower you and help you towards your dreams is so valuable.

About the Author
About Vivienne, Owner/director of Karmic-Wellbeing.
My passion is health and wellbeing. I have trained with Scottish Massage Schools in Swedish massage and also through them I am an Oncology trained IRIS therapist (level 1). I am the owner of my own wellbeing business Karmic-Wellbeing in the Highlands, which is the culmination of my extensive training in the wellbeing sector. I am a three principles practitioner and I practise Life Coaching and Hypnotherapy sessions with my clients as well as my massage treatments on offer. My influences are Louise Hay, Dr Dwayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Sydney Banks and Michael Neill. Closer to home Ali Campbell and Scottish Massage Schools also influenced my own wellbeing and inspired me to take the leap of faith and start my own business. Law of attraction has also played a big part for me with visualisation and unlimited beliefs helping me get to where I am today! As an advocate for wellbeing I absolutely love my work and cannot stress enough how important it is to make time for yourself. Massage and Hypnotherapy definitely set me off on my holistic journey and brought out my spiritual side and I am excited to be on this path. I am very grateful for the opportunity to contribute an article to your wonderful wellbeing magazine on Life Coaching.
Love and best wishes Vivienne.
