Yesterday, a potential individual coaching client told me that he thought life coaching was for people that are mentally ill. WOW! That blew my mind.
It’s funny how athletes think nothing of having a coach for their team, musicians will hire a tutor, and businesses have consultants. But when it comes to learning ways to live a better life there is a tendency to think there is something wrong with us if we have a life coach.
To answer the question, is life coaching for the mentally ill, the answer is NO. Life coaching is for people that want an easier, happier way to live and are either tired of trying to figure it out by themselves or want impartial, personal advice.
