“I used to believe that I was broken beyond repair- defective, damaged goods, and that the only way I could get relief from all that ailed me was to die. Have you ever felt like that? I want you to know that there is another way. Today, I love being alive, I love who I am, and I love living my life. If you knew all that I have lived through, you would understand what a profound statement that is. I’m sure you have survived horrors of your own. Before you do something you can’t take back, give me a chance to help you. Let me show you how you can love living too.”
Is a life coach the same thing as a therapist? Life coaching and therapy have similarities in the way that both approaches use information gathered from psychological and behavioral perspectives, but the services are very different. The fundamental difference between the two is that life coaches are not licensed, healthcare professionals. The style of life coaching differs in that your coach will certainly validate the things that have happened in your past, but Mia’s role is to teach you skills that will cause you to shift your focus to moving forward from your past. That way, you can overcome limitations in your mindset that have been holding you back.
What can I expect from working with a life coach? Life coaches help you set goals, identify obstacles to reaching those goals, and teach you coping skills to overcome those obstacles. Knowledge often comes from their own personal lived experiences, as well as insight garnered from the work they’ve done with others. The power differential found in most therapist-client relationships does not exist in life coaching. The client and coach are on the same level, so to speak, and you are in control of your life and decisions, although a life coach has a unique perspective compared to someone who has not had experiences similar to yours. Your coach will not take on a role of authority over you but connects you to your inherent power so that you can finally make changes in your life.
