Life Coaching is an innovative and dynamic approach to counseling in which we not only teach new skills, but practice those skills in-between meetings to hold ourselves accountable and cement those skills in the real world. We will directly implement and master new skill sets which will accelerate goal progression.
Life coaching is a bit of an off shoot of counseling. While counseling designates medical necessity treatments, meaning there is an overall deficit in functioning which is impairing the person, Life coaching is more of a polishing of skills.
For a very long time, only people who had major deficits would engage in counseling and therapeutic services. Things have changed, and now most people are coming in simply to learn more about themselves, attain new skills, learn how to manage specific situations in their lives. This is where Life Coaching comes into play.
This is a highly collaborative and dedicated process of change, and will provide you with highly effective results.
As with any of the services we offer, we always begin the process by clearly and collaboratively creating workable goals and outcomes. These are specifically tailored to the life coaching process and will be effectively implemented to provide you will long lasting results. Moving the counseling relationship to real world practice or coaching helps to hasten the goal attainment and quickly get you where you want to be.
Life coaching can be used with a number of issues or concerns and has provided rapid results to many of our Chicago based clients.
