Life Coaching - Help People By Being A Freelance Life Coach!

Dec 24, 2007
Being a life coach simply means you need to be able to help the individual in concern to get the best out of his life. Some people would want suggestions on how they could improve performances at the work place, while some may want guidance on how they could be the best parents. Some people would want advice on marriage and relationships and others may be more career focused.

Life coaching is a relatively new idea, and is often misinterpreted as psycho counseling and therapy. Although these professions may well be closely related, there is a difference. Life coaching does not claim to have answers to all questions about life itself, and it doesn't concern itself about the past of a person too much. What are the key issues are a person's present state of mind, and what it could become tomorrow.

The process of life coaching is as passionate for the professional as it is for the client, and a good life coach is in the field because he is passionate about helping people reach their goals in life. The money is important, but not as important as the passion. Never hire a coach who seems to only want your money!

More often than not, the life coaching sessions are conducted over the Internet, and even more commonly over the telephone. This is well suited to people who lead busy lives and are just thankful to have a calm phone call from an effective coach every now and again. Moreover, many top businessmen hire life coaches, and they could want to converse with their coach from virtually any global location.

Here again, the phone methods are applicable. And then, there is minimum wastage of time and money when you have your sessions over the telephone. It also makes it relatively simple to reschedule your meetings.

Generally, a planned session lasts for something like half an hour to a maximum of a whole hour. You could expect a few short calls every now and again, and any number of emails. The point is, your coach is always there for you should you require an immediate conversation.

However, things go according to plan unless you require urgent meetings, and planned sessions occur about once a week (long conversations). The convenient aspect of these sessions is what seems to be the cause of the phenomenal popularity that such professionals have gained over the recent years.

As a coach, you may be happier being a freelance worker, and such people find this an attractive career option. The money is good, and you often have a lot of time to spend for your own self. Moreover, you need to be a person who enjoys helping people, and you need to be a patient and careful listener.
