Coaching Defined

What is life coaching?

The International Coaching Federation’s (ICF) definition of a coach is a professional who supports, empowers and challenges individuals to help them realize their personal and professional goals. The coaching relationship is a partnership relying on a high level of trust and connection between coach and client. The coach helps the client to clarify their own agenda and supports them in creating and following through on a strategy to achieve their goals.

Coaching is distinct from consulting in that I will help you come up with your own answers rather than advising. It is different from therapy in that we will address any obstacles that keep you from achieving your goals, but we will not engage in therapy or any psychological area that requires training and licensing.
