What Is A Life Or Mindfulness Coach?

A life coach London is best described as a person that helps others to meet their personal (or professional) goals through empowerment and guidance. While it is easy to think of such a person as providing the cold, harsh answers often found in 'Agony Aunt' columns, this is simply just not the case when it comes to a life coach. Such coaches tend to have a background in psychotherapy and are keen to avoid sweeping judgements. They are there to help the person achieve a more open mind and cast away restrictions that may be inhibiting that person's life choices and goals. This is not done through providing 'solutions', but through empathy and understanding to construct tools that the person can use to help them feel happier and more fulfilled in every area of their life. What a life coach does can vary between coaches, clients and sessions. For example, you can find a mindfulness coach who focuses on helping you achieve a state of mindfulness. Or you may find a meditation coach to help you achieve a sense of serenity if life feels very hectic or chaotic. It's very subjective and approaches are tailored to suit what you need as an individual.
