Life Coach, Counsellor, or Therapist; - How do I choose?

Nlp For Dummies

If you have been searching the internet for something, you will usually end up with a life coach site popping up in your results at some point. Life Coaching has evolved over the years and continues to change and grow - but what is life coaching, how do you choose a life coach, and what should you be aware of?

Life Coaching Past:
Life Coaching really emerged, noticeably, about 10 years ago. Most life coaching was advertised as Executive Coaching or Leadership Coaching and they were usually hired by corporations for staff or individual training. With the onset of in-house corporate training teams, the need for Executive Coaches diminished and many sought other areas to continue coaching in. Since then, there are now life coaches that coach in every area of life you can think of and then some. Many life coaches specialize in one or two main life areas but many still coach in multiple life areas. Originally, life coaches were people who had some kind of previous work experience before going into coaching. Most Executive Coaches came out of the corporate business world and as an Executive Coach or Leadership Coach, were able to make great incomes. Many of these past Executive Coaches also have become Client Attraction or Marketing Coaches in today's climate and their services are provided to corporations still but mostly to small or solo businesses or individuals.

Life Coaching Now:
Now life coaching is common, easy to find and is for businesses and individuals and can be called just about anything. Today, there are many life coach training schools but there are huge disparities between the qualities of education students receive from school to school. In fact, there are no required educational standards that a life coach school must follow/provide and there is no regulation of the life coach industry. Anyone can call themselves a Life Coach and open a practice - buyer beware becomes a very serious phrase to remember. There are now a couple of professional organizations, such as the International Coaching Federation, which as a professional membership organization, is working diligently to establish coaching standards, life coach school standards and looking at types of regulations that could benefit the industry and consumers.

There are now between 10,000 and 20,000 life coaches that are providing services to customers. There are an increasing number of people pursuing becoming a life coach. Many people want to help others but many think they can earn a tremendous amount of money while being able to work at home in their pjs, part-time. If only it was that easy. Today's world of having a web based business and all it entails has become very complicated and it isn't as cheap in start-up costs either. Most life coaches are earning much less than $20,000 a year because they don't have enough clients. Many coaches fail because you have to be a person who can structure their own time while working from home. When you work in a business, it provides structure that you work within. At home, there is no structure except what a person creates and it is all too easy to not be structured. Marketing has become a huge part of daily life for life coaches, much more than ever before and many have taken marketing to an incredible level of hard selling. Those 'coaches' providing marketing or small business start-up coaching have created a huge income based industry but it has also gained tremendous competition over the last few years.

One of the newer life coaching waves coming is 'Wellness Coaching' which is similar to health coaching. Of concern to me is that many, who are entering this 'niche', receive only 20 hrs of training. Many life coaches practicing health or wellness coaching have not checked their state's laws on what they can and cannot coach on in this 'niche'. A life coach cannot treat, diagnose, cure, prescribe or provide counseling. As a Holistic Practitioner, Certified Life Coach and Licensed Social Worker, I fear for people receiving life coaching services on health related subjects from life coaches with so little background in health and thus the potential for harm of the customer may occur. This is my concern and opinion which is shared by some and not by others. The pressure for more specific specialization, 'niching', will likely increase as well.

Will social media change the face of coaching? That's unknown at this time. There are many blogs and forums now that people can access for support for their specific needs, meet and get to know other people interested in the same things. The world has gotten smaller and it is much easier to find people to talk to on the web, yet we are more isolated in our 'real' lives than ever before.

I envision the complexities of marketing, which include free give aways, membership groups, increased administrative time (which means less time for coaching), hard selling and heavy marketing will continue to increase, as well. I envision there will be expanded Coaching Schools that provide coaching education that gives core basics for all types of coaching and then gives additional education in specific areas of specialty types of coaching. These will greatly lead to better qualified service providers. I found it amazing, how many coaches actually came out of the computer field from computer programming, IT support, web design and such. I do hope that something can be done to make sure the competency, skill, education, and experience of life coaches becomes more uniform and is not as much a 'shooting in a barrel' experience for customers to find truly skilled and dedicated coaches.

In conclusion, life coaching has gone from corporate America to mainstream. The benefits of life coaching are becoming better known and there are many gifted life coaches available - but you will have to do some weeding first. Life Coaching can improve the quality of your life and even your physical and mental health and thus, it is hoped, it may be covered by health insurance as pro-active services someday. In the mean time, life coaching is affordable and easy to find. If you are in search of life coaching for a very specific area of your life or goal, there is likely a life coach that covers it. But the bottom line is that it is up to the consumer to pick the 'right' life coach for them and if it doesn't work for you, then stop and switch to a life coach that will 'fit' you better. Life coaching has evolved considerably and will continue to do so and in 6 years, we'll write another article updating you on how things have, yet again, changed.

Become a Life Coach - How to Become a Successful Coach

Success Coach

To consciously choose our own life requires the ability to choose with our own authority, and with the power to manifest exactly what we have chosen.

o Our power comes from our well-being. It is the emotional state of our beingness that determines our value, our worth and our power.
o our authority comes from our core beliefs. The quality of the beliefs that we hold about life determines the confidence that we have to create our own reality in life. Our beliefs are the choices that we continually make as to how we see our world in reality. When we believe that we can create our own reality, then we can and we know that we do.
o our ability to realise, create and manifest a sublime life is equal to the magnitude of our emotional power (who we are being) combined with the alignment with our highest choice and vision for this life-time (why we are here) that holds our self in our highest esteem.

The formula for a sublime life is simply:

power + authority = ability.
Or
self worth + self confidence = self esteem

when we get this formula confused, we get lost and very frustrated.

o when we believe that money gives us power and value, we get very confused.
o when we believe that status gives us authority and confidence, we get very lost.
o when we believe that knowledge gives us ability and esteem, we get very frustrated.

We gain presence in life as we realise that reality only exists in the present moment and therefore we can only create and recreate our reality in each present moment and each moment that we are present.

o presenting the present moment of reality as a gift (a present) requires us to move out of the judgments of our past and away from the expectations of our future.
Life coaching is the support and guidance required to attain an effortlessly sublime life by:
o avoiding the problems of a chaotic and disastrous life-style
o learning the lessons to accept the challenge to live life on purpose
o recognising the opportunities that direct us on our chosen path in life

being spiritual or attaining conscious-awareness, by being aware of our consciousness and conscious of our awareness, means balancing all 3 aspects of our physical, mental and emotional energy that is the essence of our human beingness.

We are ready to attain the health, wealth & wisdom of being joyful, fulfilled & content with true happiness and expansive well-being, once we access our own power, authority & ability that we realise through our own personal path of spiritual development & growth.
