What is a life coach, and what do they do?

Since I have began life coaching I have several people ask me what it is that a life coach does. Some people confuse life coaches with therapists yet many life coaches are trained in the counseling profession. Life Coaches are not  therapists, but can be certified in specific areas of life coaching. Life coaching is a professional service that provides clients with insight, guidance, and resources from an outside perspective to help them in their life goals. People can hire a life coach for several reasons such as: career transition, starting a new business, feeling dissatisfied, re-evaluating life choices, getting into better shape, becoming more organized, stress management, or finding a family/work balance. The possibilities are endless for what a coach can provide you with in regards to the tools, resources, and techniques and all of them vary from one coach to another. Life Coaches usually have extensive life experience in the area they specialize in as well. 
There are business coaches, wellness coaches, career coaches, life coaches, etc...and some offer a variety of coaching.Coaching is a method of directing, instructing and training a person or group of people, with the aim to achieve some goal or develop specific areas of their life.
If you have a desire to change some things in your life and are not quite sure where to start then I urge you to consult with a life coach today.
