“Life Coach“ is by far the cheesiest sounding occupation.
But I AM one and proud of it, because coaching works (and I love it).
And we haven’t come up with anything else that doesn’t sound even cheesier. (Lifestyle Engineer? Really?)
But why hire one? If you don’t have a coach already you may be wondering what the heck they are good for.
Or perhaps you are considering hiring a life coach but are unsure if they can really help you with your unique situation.
Here are the 6 top reasons clients work with me.
1. Something Wonderful Happened!
Congratulations! You are getting married, got a new job, had a baby, launched your business, etc. All good? Not usually.
It can be terrifying and disorientating to undergo such radical change.
Essentially you are letting go of the “old” you and taking on a brand new identity– but you’re not there yet!
It can be very painful and frightening letting go of what we know. Especially if we feel we “should” be so incredibly happy and are confused about the process.
A great life coach can help you navigate this huge change and support you moving forward in a healthy much more enjoyable way.
2. Something Terrible Happened!
I am so sorry if this is you.
Death, job loss, moving, divorce, all the bad stuff can be like stuffing your life into a shredder.
A great life coach can create a compassionate and safe place for you to grieve and when it’s time, show you powerful tools to help you move forward into a happier more peaceful place.
3. Nothing Is Happening-I’m Stuck!
Perhaps you keep trying to improve your business, your job, your money situation, or your relationships and nothing seems to be working.
A great life coach can help you discover why you are stuck and why things are not working out the way you want them to.
They will help you remove obstacles, bust through painful thoughts and devise a plan to help you get what you truly, deeply want.
4. I Don’t Know How To Make It Happen!
There is something in your life you desperately want.
A new job, to start a business of your own, to meet the love of your life, but you are frozen by the enormity and implications of making such a monumental change.
You may feel like you are clinging to a cliff edge and leaping or staying seems impossible.
A great life coach can help you work through the fear and overwhelm that usually pops up when you are creating something authentic, exciting and new.
5. What The Heck Is Happening? I feel awful!
A great life coach can help you identify and dissolve painful thoughts you may not even realize are running in the background.
These thoughts can create the joyless state of helplessness.
A great coach will help you transition gracefully from victimhood to being a happy and very powerful force in your own life and the lives of those you love.
6. I Have No Idea What To Do Now!
If you just walked out on your soul sucking job or ended a bad relationship, congratulations!
You may not have figured out what’s next but a great life coach can help you do just that!
You will be able to create an authentic joyous life, really! My clients do it every day.
Take some deep breaths and know you are one step closer to having a happy, fulfilling life.
Letting go of what you don’t want is the first step. Getting a life coach is a great next step.
A good coach will help guide you in your transformation and show you how to bring joy back into your life as you create a life you truly love.

If you are a coach (or if you have a coach already and want to explain why you would do such a thing) I invite you to share this post with others.
