What is a Life Coach?


Life coaching some times called Personal Coach is a future-focused practice with the aim of helping clients determine and achieve personal goals. Life coaches select from among several methods to help clients set and reach goals. Coaches are not therapists nor consultants; psychological intervention and business analysis are outside the scope of their tasking.

These new professionals deal with relatively healthy people who want to improve their lives. They deal with stress management as well as time management, goal setting and other key areas of change to help their clients lead more balanced lives that better reflect clients’ personal values and priorities. Additionally, life coaching does not delve into diagnosing mental illness or dysfunction.


The single most important thing you can do to achieve success is to have a coach who will motivate you, inspire you, and most importantly, hold you accountable to taking continuous action on your most important goals.
