Life coaching is for…

…mentally healthy and resourceful people who want to explore, grow, improve, and use more of their potential. It unobtrusively creates powerful lasting changes. Life coaching happens in a series of sessions on the phone, in person, or online. The sessions are totally tailored to your needs. Hence the coach and you continuously design the flow of coaching and follow your agenda. You determine the agenda for each session. You can address a variety of issues in health, relationships, work, money, and success in the coaching sessions.

The roots of life coaching can be traced to the Inner Game books of the mid 1970s. In these books W. Timothy Gallwey suggested a paradigm shift in sports coaching. He had noticed that players corrected themselves when he coached with open questions instead of catching errors and offering suggestions. When a player relaxed and held a picture and feeling of the result s/he wanted, the player improved. The player corrected him/herself without even knowing that s/he had been in error. As the Inner Game books topped bestseller lists and Gallwey’s reputation grew, he found himself speaking more often to business leaders than to sports audiences. As the principles of the Inner Game were applied to professional development, the value of individual coaching became apparent.

NLP makes the benefits of life coaching far more potent.

An NLP coach will see your point of view more easily than a coach not trained in NLP because the NLP coach will observe your physiology, listen to your language, and spot the patterns of your successes and “failures” in working with your environment, behaviors, capabilities, beliefs, values, identity, and all that is beyond who you are.

If this inspired you to immerse yourself deeper in the world of NLP, life coaching, or personal development, here’re NLP and life coaching resources. They will guide and certainly enrich you.
