People commonly seek life coaching for confidence building. And it is excellent for this purpose! A lack of confidence can really hold you back in your life or your work. Make you feel shy, or frustrated. Or mean you avoid dealing with particular situations. Whereas people who appear confident generally look more at ease with themselves and their lives, and the seem to exude a certain something that others would like to emulate.
Why Life Coaching for Confidence?
While a lack of confidence CAN be attributed to something from the past, or a “problem” which exists day to day, Life Coaching does not insist on tackling that problem in order to achieve the improvement in confidence that you want. Some people would rather not “open the can of worms” preferring to acknowledge where they are, and look forward; taking pro-active steps to get them to where they want to be. This is what Life Coaching is all about.
The first thing to remember is that just because someone looks more confident than you feel, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are. Everyone falls foul of a little self doubt from time to time, and it’s quite healthy to do so. But what Life Coaching can help you to do is work out the important areas of your life in which you would like to regularly feel more confidence, and work with you, helping you to tap into pools of confidence that you didn’t know that you had. And learn patterns of thinking which are much more useful; enabling you to put yourself forward with more confidence and assertiveness.
Life Coaching for confidence can be used in conjunction with other therapies too though. So if you are currently being treated for a problem, or something from the past, and would like to also be taking positive steps forward, this can be done.
How does a Life Coaching session work?
Typically speaking, Life Coaching is a “talk therapy” in which a discuss occurs between the coach and the coachee. The coach acts like an impartial best friend. Wanting the best thing for that person, but without being too sympathetic, or bought in. A coach helps their client to “see the wood” in all the trees, and challenges them to take little steps, to get them to where they want to be. Between sessions the client has actions to take, and momentum builds over time, until the small changes start making a big difference.
