A Life Coach provides support, structure and encouragement to help individuals fulfil their potential, make the most of their lives and move forward in the areas in which they want to change, key areas include relationships, careers, fitness, work-life balance or self-confidence.

By observation, listening and questioning, a Life Coach explores their client’s current situation, values and beliefs. They work with them to find ways in which they might achieve their aims and help them to set appropriate goals. By remaining supportive and non-judgmental, a Life Coach encourages their clients to maintain motivation and commitment and find ways of overcoming barriers and setbacks.

They may challenge assumptions through constructive feedback and questioning, but they do not tell clients what to do; their main aim is to empower them to take control of their life by finding the answers for themselves. Once qualified and you have built up experience, other options and niche areas of focus for your practice will develop. For example:
