What Problems Does a Life Coach Help Solve?
When you have a leak in the kitchen, who do you hire? A plumber.
When you have a toothache, who do you call to make an appointment? A dentist.
When something’s wrong, in the neighbourhood, who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters.
Joking aside, the point I’m making is that the problems that coaches solve are not always obvious. For example, if you wake up for the 73rd Monday in a row feeling grumpy and disheartened about your job, who do you call? Your mom, a friend, or maybe nobody at all.
What do you do if you struggle with self-esteem and confidence and yet, you don’t want to see a therapist because at the root of it, you know that there’s nothing “wrong” with you?
What if you want a 2nd career that you love, you are contemplating going back to school, but you have no idea what you should be studying? Who do you ask for help?
It may not be your default answer but you can call a life coach for all of the above. Yes, a life coach can help overcome the ol’ Monday morning blues, build confidence, determine your career path, and much more.
To understand what problems a life coach can help you with, think of it this way. While therapy focuses on helping people with psychological disorders live more normal lives, life coaching helps normal people live extraordinary lives.
Nowadays, researchers in the field of Positive Psychology are discovering how people “thrive”, improve their “wellbeing”, become “happier”, become more “resilient”, and have more “meaning”. These are all outcomes of working with a life coach.
They’ll help you:
- overcome the Monday morning blues
- build confidence
- find a career that you love
- get clear on your goals
- stay accountable to your goals
- do more of the activities that engage you
- form better relationships
- have more meaning in your life
- develop your purpose
- work on the things that you are passionate about
- feel happier
If any of these problems sound familiar, you’re in the right place. Hire a life coach today.
