Life coaching can be highly beneficial for a number of reasons. This includes helping to increase motivation in the coachee and goal attainment.
Life coaching takes place one to one across a minimum of six weeks and is useful for people with specific goals they wish to achieve.
Examples of life coaching goals:
- stress/anger management
- time management
- how to increase positive emotion
Life coaching sessions last for up to sixty minutes and draw on a wide range of coaching approaches specific to the clients needs namely the GROW model, appreciative coaching and motivational interviewing.
These approaches are selected based on the initial assessment. They are bespoke to the client as Find Your Spark believes that ‘no one size fits all.’
Life coaching differs from mentoring in that a life coach would never tell their coachee what to do. Instead, the life coach would ask the coachee specific questions to help the coachee work out the solution for themselves. This is because we believe the coachee is their own best expert. We will offer suggestions with the coachee’s permission and the coachee can then choose to apply those suggestions (or not as the case may be).
Life coaching is all about choice. The coachee has to choose to have the coaching initially else it will not be effective and the coachee will end up disengaging. Usually a Find Your Spark coach will come into the school/youth club/charity organisation to deliver a speech or a taster session and the young person can then express an interest in having coaching.
Life coaching is positive, solutions and future focused. Whilst we acknowledge the past and the fact that negative things may have happened, we do not dwell on this and use these as a way to explore solutions to move forward.
Life coaching sessions can take place in the clients’ school/college/University, youth club, charity organisation, work premises, in their home or in the Find Your Spark premises.
