How is a life coach different from a therapist?
Therapists analyse their client’s past as a tool for understanding present behaviours, whereas life coaches simply identify and describe current problematic behaviours so the client can work to modify them. …
Therapy and life coaching do share certain traits and aims.
Why should you have a life coach?
It will make you feel great! Life coaching improves confidence and self-esteem,
increases life satisfaction and happiness levels, lowers stress levels and helps you have a more peaceful mind. This, in turn, increases energy, productivity, brings passion and focus to all of your future endeavours and relationships.
What problems do Life Coaches help solve?
- overcome the Monday morning blues.
- build confidence.
- find a career that you love.
- get clear on your goals.
- stay accountable to your goals.
- do more of the activities that engage you.
- form better relationships.
- have more meaning in your life.
Did you know that we can carry hidden family baggage—without even knowing?
But fortunately, we can coach ourselves and others to hand these burdens back. Bringing freedom and wholeness.
Hidden family baggage can show up as inner obstacles such as:
James inherited an ancestral fear of leading because his grandfather was persecuted for having a leadership role.
- Financial Blocks
Sue struggled to build healthy abundance because of hidden burden, her uncle was involved with corruption.
- Confidence Dampeners
Thadie was plagued by self-doubt because of a break in her maternal blood line, her mother was adopted and didn’t know her parents.
Simon inherited his mother’s anger towards his father who had an affair.
- Struggling to feel a full sense of belonging
Lerato felt like she never belonged, and found out that her Great Grandmother, who she looked like, was cut out of the family for marrying outside of her families culture and religion.
- Career Barriers
Joe hated his work as a teacher, but was one of 6 teachers in his family, then he discovered that a grandmother had been forced to be a housewife instead of living her dream of being a teacher. He handed back the burden and was free to build a new path.
- Divided Loyalties
Sarah’s parents got divorced and she felt torn between her loyalty to both her mother and father.
Anika grew up too quickly, her father was absent and she took on the role of being parent to her siblings and confidant to her mother. Her whole life she felt like a parent to others until she handed back this burden.
When coaching systemic family dynamics, we work with 4 Steps:
- Belonging ~ Helping our clients to claim their full sense of belonging.
- Placement ~ Helping our clients to step into their true place (e.g. being the child and not parenting their parents).
- Burdens ~ Coaching our clients to hand back any known and unknown systemic burdens.
- Gifts ~ Coaching our clients to claim the gifts of their bloodlines.
