Life coaching can be a very effective form of therapy and support and has helped many people change their lives for the better. Life coaching shouldn’t be confused with counselling. A life coaches role is to empower their client and, in doing so, help them make, meet and exceed goals in their personal and / or professional lives.
Life coaching can help with many aspects of a person’s life and many coaches specialise in very specific areas.
Life coaching is an unregulated profession in the UK and anyone can call themselves a life coach. It is therefore extremely important to do your research and ensure your potential therapist has appropriate experience, qualifications and insurance cover.
