Feeling a bit stuck in life? Sometimes we feel like we are in the wrong career or even lack confidence in our own abilities. Life coaching is all about unravelling what is preventing you from being who and where you want to be in life. 

Life coaching is a service that can be accessed in person, though remote sessions are booming in popularity. Not only is online coaching convenient, but it also means you can choose the right professional for your specific needs, regardless of their location. 

If you’ve been considering life coaching to reach the next step in life, here is what you can expect when you access the service remotely. 

What can a Life Coach help with?

  • Career goals

  • Starting a business

  • Personal development

  • Performance management

  • Health & wellbeing

  • Relationships

  • Youth Coaching

What does online Life Coaching involve?

Life coaching aims to take you from where you are now to where you want to be - whether that’s within your career or life in general. It draws on creativity and resourcefulness to work through any stumbling blocks that are preventing you from reaching your potential. 

Your life coach is going to ask you about your goals, as well as any thoughts or worries you have in relation to these goals. The questions will be posed in a non-judgemental way, as they aim to overcome any barriers and help you develop a strategic mindset.

Online life coaching sessions focus on exactly the same content they would in person. However, the sessions will be held over video call instead. You simply need a notebook and a reliable internet connection to attend each session. 

Choosing an online Life Coach

Most life coaches have an active presence online in the form of blogs, videos, a website and social media. The content they share can help you align with the right person for your specific goals. For example, do you want a life coach with business experience or someone who can help you develop better relationships? 

Most life coaches will offer an initial session or consultation at a reduced price or even for free. Use this as an opportunity to ask plenty of questions about their coaching style, and how many sessions they would recommend. If they have any online reviews or testimonials then be sure to check these out too. 

How does Life Coaching differ from counselling?

Both life coaching and counselling look to adapt your way of thinking to help you tackle issues that are weighing you down. However, a life coach will focus more on your present and future self, rather than focusing too much on the past as a counsellor would. 

A counsellor can help with a wide range of issues such as dealing with past trauma, anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self esteem issues. A life coach focuses on life, career and relationships as a whole with a real forward momentum to the sessions, as they want to encourage you with your goals rather than specific mental health issues that a counsellor would focus on instead. 

With a life coach the proof is in the pudding, as they need to have had a lot of success with their clients to build a good reputation. Though they may also have additional qualifications or business experience that can provide you with helpful expertise too.
