Mindfulness and mental wellbeing are prominet in today's media landscape; sometimes in a positive sense (meditation changed my life!) and sometimes in a negative sense: is mindfulness and a holistic life all positive?
Certainly, a similar thing happens with food and beverages: a glass of wine is apparently good for us but according to the latest studies, no amount of alcohol is beneficial. Butter used to be bad but now it’s better than margarine, who knows!
For anyone trying to guide you on how to live your life, there will always be two sides to the story. It is always best that you look away from outside influences and make sure you put away the time to think for yourself.
Well, the decision making process isn't straightforward, either.
So this is what leads people to seek out a counselling life coach. Apart from indecision, people sometimes are anxious and stressed over the fear of failure, or even work procrastination can be a reason for people to want help from a professional, who deals with the support of these kinds of issues on a day to day basis.
Now, that is not to say that life coaches are holistic therapists, or even if they possess a masters degree in psychology, life coaching is not the same as therapy.
A counselling life coach will not try to alter the behaviour of the individual– as in cognitive therapy, but they will encourage you to look deeply into the way that you handle decisions for yourself.
In brief, a certified life coach will help and support you to identify barriers that stand between you and your ideal self and empower you to create a better version of yourself.
Are you a procrastinator? Do you suffer from low self-esteem? Do you want to feel good about yourself, and making the step by step progress in self development that is so important in our lives?
Grab a coffee (it’s good for you/it’s bad for you) and settle in. This article is going to make it a bit easier for you to find a life coach near you in Adelaide, Australia.
What Can a Life Coach Do For Me?
A life coach is not a therapist: they will not delve into your past or try to help you recover from a mental health issue. They are more focused on your actions.
However, they will focus on you becoming your best you, and help you identify ways in which you can better yourself, be that for your job, social life or any other details.
Without looking into the past, a life coach helps you look forward and see the person you’ve always known you could be.
A life coach will:
- Empower you to forgive yourself for your uncertainties by revealing anxiety as a pointless hindrence.
- Motivate you to unclutter your life.
- Focus on your personal development or career.
Now we go in search of life coaches that can help create this positive transformation.
