So, the therapy sessions have finished and now you are in the big wild world again.
While it might be tempting to fall back into old routines after therapy, it is the perfect opportunity to create healthier ones.
It also is a good opportunity to go for a new life suit to you.
This is where a life coach comes in.
Not only will a life coach help you make progress after therapy but will help you to create the life you would like.
What is a life coach and what do they do?
A life coach is a type of wellness professional who helps people make progress in their lives to attain greater fulfilment. (VeryWell Mind)
Yet life coaches are more than that. A life coach can help with…
- Gaining a better work/life balance
- Improve communication skills.
- Greater financial stability
- Stroger relationships with friends/family
- Greater enjoyment at work.
A life coach will help you manage your expectations as well give you practical between sessions tasks to help you grow.
How to find the right Life Coach
If you know specifically what you want then you can go to a specialised coach (Business, work, relationships, etc).
If you are unsure there are coaches out there that offer more of a broad-based approach that can help pinpoint what type of help you need.
Like a good pair of shoes, you need to be comfortable with your life coach, therefore, most coaches will offer a free introductory call.
The purpose of this call is to see if there is a connection between you and the coach.
A good coach will pick up on how you learn and will adjust any programme accordingly. They will make the course relevant to you, so no one size fits all course.
There are many coaches that offer to 10x your life ‘for a small investment’, yet there is a catch.
What you don’t realise though is that if paying by credit card, you’re actually paying off more than the course itself (almost the same price).
A good coach will not just be affordable (including payment plans), they will make sure they do an affordability check with you. They will challenge you to see where you can make the savings to afford the course.
You need to be committed. Without commitment to change you will never make progress.
Ideally you would need to be able to commit at least 1 hour a week for a call and then about 1-2 hours a week for any inter session work that needs to be done.
If you do not take the step to continue the development of yourself after therapy, you may miss out on the opportunities that life can send your way.
By investing time into your development, you will continue to grow and to keep pace with life, so you do not get left behind.
