Who Can Benefit From A Healing Guide?

The simple answer is a person who is struggling emotionally or physically.

Sometimes life throws us a curveball, and depending on how we choose to handle that, it can begin to interfere with how we are feeling emotionally and physically. It’s a well-known scientific fact that stress causes illness so when a person doesn’t take the necessary steps to manage their stress it begins to take its toll resulting in a variety of symptoms, anything from lack of motivation and joy to a full-blown medical condition. When this happens it begins to interfere with our ability to live a high-quality life. The onset of symptoms can happen so slowly that we don’t even recognize that changes are occurring until they compound to a point where we say, “How did I get here? How did this happen?” When this happens it’s time to seek help.
  • You can benefit from a Healing Guide if any of the following apply.
  • You feel like you are going through the motions yet not living a fully engaged life.
  • You’ve lost your ability to fully and effectively engage with those around you.
  • You have some health issues that seem minor even though they are a constant bother.
  • You’re suffering from a physical health condition and you’re worried about your future.

  • Decreasing worry and frustration.

What is a Life Coach?

What is a Life Coach?

A life coach is a partner with one specific goal; to maximizing the client’s full potential. A life coach is fully committed to your success and, unlike friends, family and co-workers, the coach’s only agenda is YOUR agenda. The coaching relationship is a powerful relationship which opens the client’s heart, mind, and soul to possibilities never dreamed possible. A life coach sees the client’s full potential and helps to remove the blocks that are in the way of fulfilling that potential.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a powerful alliance; a process where the coach and the client work together in an ongoing, supportive relationship to bring out the client’s full potential. Coaching assists a client in discovering what’s best for them and moves them forward towards it while thriving in the face of change. Coaching brings about extraordinary and sustainable results for clients.

How Can a Life Coach Help?

A life coach will assist you in:
  • defining your goals and hold you accountable to them,
  • improving your health, wealth, and relationships,
  • reaching higher than you have ever thought about reaching,
  • making decisions that are in alignment with your values,
  • recognizing potential and possibilities in yourself that you fail to recognize,
  • rekindling what really matters to you,
  • creating and experiencing a life full of abundance.
How to Choose Your Life Coach?

Choosing the right coach is essential to your success. Not all coaches are trained equally. Coaches have different styles, techniques, and tools that they use to move their clients to a greater, fuller life. It’s vitally important that you choose a coach you are comfortable working with if you expect to get great results. Here are a few guidelines you can follow when choosing a coach:
  • Study the coach and make sure their philosophies align with yours.
  • Ask for client testimonials. Look to see if their former clients have achieved the results you are looking for.
  • Check to see that the coach is certified. It’s easy to hang out a coaching shingle but has the coach been properly trained? Don’t be afraid to ask for proof of credentials.
  • Choose a coach who specializes in the area of your problem. There are hundreds of coaching specialty areas.
  • Choose a coach who is in good standing with the International Coaching Federation.  ICF members are bound to a Code of Ethics. The ICF sets the standard in the coaching industry.
  • Ask for a “get acquainted call” where you can ask questions and get to know the coach. This should be free of charge.
According to the International Coach Federation
  • 99% or those surveyed say they were “somewhat to very satisfied” with overall experience.
  • 96% would repeat the process.
