What is a life coach? Simply put, a life coach is someone who can help you get perspective on your life and your mind.
A life coach is not a ministering sister who will commiserate with you, although we do see our coaching as a form of ministering. Nor is a life coach a substitute for a therapist who will treat mental disorders and diseases.
Life coaching is about taking healthy people and helping them make their good lives awesome!
We know you already have a good life, but life isn’t over yet! As part of our doctrine we believe in eternal progression. There is always something to learn, something to improve, and something to discover – IF YOU WANT TO.
We believe that our free agency applies to our thoughts, feelings, and actions and that we have the ability to create joyful lives in any situation. But, joy will not be forced upon us.
“The JOY we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives.” – President Russell M Nelson. We give a resounding AMEN!
No matter the circumstance you have the agency to determine how you will think and feel and act in response.
Life coaching helps you take what you know and put it into practice. The tools that we use compliment the doctrine of free agency. As a son or daughter of divine birthright, we know you are of infinite worth with a purpose and mission to fulfill. Knowing how to think on purpose, instead of being acted upon, is a skill worth developing.
Coaching is “mind training”.
Much as a coach works with an athlete to understand and analyze performance in both practice and a game, a life coach works with clients to understand and analyze what they are doing in their cognitive, emotional, and behavioral lives.
The coach has an objective vantage point – a different perspective from which they can spot what is working as well as areas for change and improvement. A coach can see what you cannot. This is as essential for a well-lived life as it is for a well-played sport.
Just because you read a book on playing basketball doesn’t mean you can play basketball. A coach picks up where the books leave off and helps you apply what you have learned to your unique set of circumstances.
And just like reading a book about basketball doesn’t make you a basketball player, the same is true for life coaching.
Life coaching is an unregulated industry. This means anyone can call themselves a life coach, and formal training is not a requirement.
However, we believe that education really does matter! The coaches we feature have all been professionally certified through the world’s premier training school: The Life Coach School founded by Brooke Castillo which boasts as alumni Jody Moore.
You can trust that each of our coaches have undergone the rigorous training you would expect from a professional. Our coaches continue to pursue education and training in their field as a requirement to maintain this prestigious certification as well as current membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
