“As I move my clients towards positive change, they experience truly amazing results and realize improved health, finances and personal growth.” — Kyle Henderson, Life and Business Coach
I get asked all the time, “What exactly is life coaching? Is it New Age? Is it therapy?” My answer is, “No, it’s not either of those things.” If you ask anyone who’s ever met me, they will tell you I am not “woo woo,” at all. I’m an incredibly practical person, who coaches others using specific hands-on tools to help them change their mindset and live a happier life.
Answering the therapy question takes a little more in-depth explaining. First and foremost, therapy is about the past and coaching is about creating the present, moment to moment, and choosing goals for the future. Coaching is not therapy, nobody is talking about what happened in the fourth grade, and nobody cries during coaching sessions. So let’s look at what coaching actually is. The International Coach Federation (ICF), which says it’s the largest coaching credentialing and support organization in the world, defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaches help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives. Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach’s job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources and creativity that the client already has.” Coaching views clients as whole and complete and mentally healthy and does not look to resolve past trauma.
Here's what Life Coaching is about and what you can get from it, because you get to choose what you work on:
• You can find your purpose in life, create a vision for it and establish meaningful goals to get there.
• You can learn how to communicate better, collaborate better, and elevate your productivity.
• You can get unstuck from a plateau in your performance either in terms of working, fitness or relationships.
• You can gain a higher level of clarity in all areas of your life.
• You can achieve a work/life balance to be calmer and happier.
• You can create breakthrough results in terms of growing your business or starting a new business.
And along the way, as your life coach I will provide tools, support, accountability and structure so that you no longer have to struggle to do it on your own.
