What do you love most about your job?

I enjoy supporting people to move from a place of overwhelm to clearly seeing their next steps. It is incredible to play a small part in people's lives to help them remove the fog that is getting in the way and to express their unique interests and qualities. It is amazing to watch the people I work to accomplish things like writing books, starting businesses, and joining movements. I have benefited tremendously from coaching and I am grateful to pass on these resources to others.

What inspired you to start your own business?

In 2016, I was stressed, burnt out, not sleeping well at night and confused about how to navigate myself in the context in a new role as a Non-Profit manager. I was working on developing a job skills program for AmeriCorps members and barely knew what I was doing in my own job. Looking for resources I found coaching. After 6 months of coaching, I changed the way I approached conversations with my boss, set clear goals for my work with my team, made a plan for regularly working out, and saved the necessary money to take a trip to surprise my mom for her Birthday. Making the decision to hire a coach to navigate that time was one of the most valuable and important decisions I made. After experiencing these results I was interested to learn more about how to apply the resources I was learning to my team and train others. I signed up for a 4-day-long training program to begin that journey. When I returned from the program I saw that providing these tools to others was something that I wanted to do on a wider scale. I created a transition plan, moved to part-time, signed up for a coach training program, and started Eric Sargent Coaching. I am honored and humbled to be of service to others through coaching and it would be a privilege to support you along your journey.

Why should our clients choose you?

My approach to coaching honors the wholeness and integrity of each person and supports their development so that they can move beyond internal limitations and navigate external obstacles. I am a trained coach through the Academy of Coaching Excellence, an accredited coaching school by the International Coaching Federation. As a coach I don’t give advice, rather, I provide a supportive space that guides you to consistently act from your own wisdom. The material and resources I use is based on the study of neuroscience and organizational and human development principles.

Life Coaching FAQs

Your professional life coach will be able to advise you on the full range of coaching available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted life coach today.

You can have as many or as few life coaching sessions as you like. Many life coaches operate over the phone or via the internet so the sessions can easily fit around your schedule. Some people hire a life coach once every few months, some people have a session once a week.

Life coaching sessions will typically last up to an hour. Often after an initial assessment, sessions can be conducted over the phone, face to face, over email, via Skype/Zoom and occasionally through instant messaging.

During the session, your life coach will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to achieve in life, what areas you're unhappy with and where you'd like to see yourself in the future. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas you have to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don't feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential.

Life coaching is focused on your present and your future. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward. Life coaches are not health professionals and they do not diagnose you. By contrast, therapy focuses on your past and looks to delve into past actions and patterns. It is analytical but not action-oriented.

Most mainstream health insurance providers do not cover the costs of life coaching because it is not considered a mental health profession in the same way therapists and counsellors are.

Life coaches do not need to have any formal or academic qualifications but you may want to look for life coaches who possess an industry-specific qualification, such as the Life Coaching Diploma or Personal Performance Diploma (PPD).

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which shows you reviews from past customers who have used their life coaching services.

A life coach is a trained professional who aims to help and guide individuals to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. They support clients on a journey to rediscover their own strength and abilities. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential, managing health conditions and achieving life ambitions.

By harnessing techniques based on core psychological principles and intuition, life coaches empower clients and provide a toolkit of teachings to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

Life coaches can specialise in one of these particular areas of coaching: career coaching, executive business, group coaching, health and wellbeing, performance management, personal development, relationships, retirement, spiritual and youth coaching.

Rapport is one of the most important parts of life coaching. If you feel uncomfortable with your professional, you are unlikely to gain much from the session. It is advisable to get in contact before you book a session to meet your life coach so you can gauge how comfortable you are in their presence. It is worth talking to a few potential life coaches and ask questions.

Yes! As long as you have a strong internet connection, then your life coach can deliver sessions via an online video chat platform. Alternatively, it can be done over the phone.
