What Is Life Coaching?
Who is Coaching For?
Does Coaching Work?
A life coach listens, assists and guides individuals who want to invest in their personal development, overcome particular challenges, reach specific goals or increase their self-esteem and confidence.
Life coaching is for an individual who needs a little bit of a push and motivation to help them forge and manifest their dreams and goals.
Coaching can be a powerful solution, but it is also a personal decision. Coaching is like any other relationship; you should be able to put your guard down and feel safe to be yourself, your true self. When you find the ‘right’ Life Coach, you should sense a connection and feel understood before the end of your first coaching session. You should feel motivated and excited because you believe your Life Coach can help you influence your actions and motivate you to unleash your full potential, attain your goals and overcome your weaknesses.
What would be the role of a Life Coach?
A Life Coach would help you build your self-esteem, confidence, self-worth, help you set and meet your goals, give you tools to trigger positive and new behavioural changes and create solutions to help you overcome obstacles that are holding you back.
What should I expect from hiring a Life Coach?
You should feel like you are being seen, heard and understood. A Life Coach should support and work with you to feel empowered and motivated. They should help you organise, prioritise and create a game plan to help you to achieve your objectives and overcome obstacles that are holding you back from life. They should be your cheerleader and pillar when you need them the most.

What is a difference between a Life Coach and a Therapist?
A Life coach focuses on setting and achieving your goals, whilst a therapist helps you treat or cope with a particular mental and psychical illness.
From the time I was 11 years old until I was 17, I suffered silently from severe insecurity and low self-esteem, as a result of my parent’s hostile divorce and going through years of poverty.
During those periods, the family dynamics and environment was extremely unhealthy and unstable, which had a massive impact on my mental and emotional well-being. I was always criticised and put down for my efforts in trying to please my parents, which caused me to feel insecure and critical of myself.
I couldn’t do simple daily activities, as I lacked the courage, motivation and belief in myself. I would inflict self-abuse, run away from trusting anyone, being in abusive relationships and immersing myself in negativity all day, every day. I didn’t know how to feel safe or feel loved. My life transformed when I found a Life Coach, who helped me see the good in me and my full potential. For me, it took several months to overcome my low self-confidence, belief and hatred.
I was taught and given new tools to change my thoughts, behaviours and patterns that were holding me back. I started to speak up and stand more confident in my beliefs. I began to feel something magical and empowering within my body, mind and soul. It felt like I was learning how to crawl, walk and run again.
From the age of 19, I started my own business, and for several years I volunteered in sheltered homes and poverty programs to help women and girls feel confident and love themself. I would share my story and inspire them not to give up and empower them to transform their lives and the way they tell their story. I could sense the hope and belief they began to have with their eyes and energy, which gave birth to my life’s purpose and passion. I truly and deeply love making a positive difference in people’s lives, and when I see them reach their full potential, I want nothing more because I have achieved my heart’s desire.
Today, I am proud to state that I was lucky that I had invested in my personal development by trusting my life coach. Without the help of my life coach, I would have never reached my full potential nonetheless helped the many individuals and companies I did over the years.
