Coaching with Compassion
If there is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be, then there is room for life coaching. Why struggle on your own when you can get what you want out of life in a fraction of the time with the structure, support, and tools of a skilled life coach?
Who hires a life coach and why?
The ICF (International Coach Federation) puts it nicely: “People hire a life coach because
∙ They want more.
∙ They want to grow.
∙ They want it easier.
It’s as simple as that. Life coaches help a client get all three. Quickly.”
A coach is a life specialist, an expert on helping you develop all areas of your life: personal life and work life. Unlike many consultants who propose a solution and leave you to implement it, the life coach stays with you to help you integrate the changes, new skills, and goals to make sure they really happen. This is one reason why coaching is so effective–it is one thing to have the information and quite another to actually make the change!
While there are some similarities between coaching and psychotherapy, they are very different activities and it is important to understand the differences between them. Lois at Quantum Balance Erie is a certified professional life coach and is not in any way associated with providing psychotherapy.
While coaching and psychotherapy both utilize knowledge of human behavior, motivation, and behavioral change, the focus of coaching is the development and implementation of strategies to reach client-identified goals of enhanced performance and personal satisfaction.
Life coaches focus on the present and the client’s goals for the future. We help people move forward and set personal and professional goals that will give them the life they really want. Most life coaching clients might feel a bit stuck or simply want to make a big change in their lives and want the support of their own personal coach to do so.
Most people find actionable improvement beginning with one session, however find the greatest benefit in three to six sessions (sometimes more, however, that is always up to the client). Each session lasts for 90 minutes.
The fee for a single 90-minute session is $80. A three sessions package is a total of $210.
