What is Coaching?

The concepts of personal development and self improvement have their roots in psycho-therapy and first came to public notice in the 1930’s with the initial momentum in the USA. From then until the mid 1980’s there were few breakthrough developments. Most procedures retained a degree of ‘therapist and patient’ relationship where the source of a trauma or issue was sought to provide
an indication of the ‘cure’.

This left many individuals with a general feeling that ‘there must be something more to life’. Life coaching evolved to accommodate this need, once more, the momentum started in the USA. The new relationship became a partnership between coach and client with each equally and totally committed to the client’s desired and stated outcomes.

Unlike therapy or counselling, life coaching starts from where you are now and helps you get to where you want to be.

When a life coach helps you to define an action it is not the action itself that is important.

It is the results that derive from that action that create the success.
