Life Coaching From the Comfort of Your Home or Office
Hi, my name is Lyndsey, however, my friends call me Elle and I would love it if you would too. I am a board-certified life coach who calls Vancouver, Washington home. I have helped people in the entire US so wherever you call home, NY, to California, and anywhere in between I am available for you.
What is a life coach?
Life Coach jobs require candidates having degrees in counseling. In some cases, these posts are open for applicants from other fields, such as psychologists. Professionals working in this area must have a certification that is required by several states.
The International Coaching Federation offers this qualification. It is composed of a 125-hour ICF training program or a similar course for this field, work experience in this area, and a letter of recommendation from established coaches.
This program includes courses in developing materials, pricing, marketing, leadership techniques, coaching dynamics, professional practices, and choosing a specialty, including general business classes.
I am a proud graduate of ICF.
What is a life coach? What are their responsibilities? Well, a Life Coach is responsible for guiding people that are confused about what to do with their lives. They support goal-setting, personal growth, and behavior modification of their clients. These professionals help people achieve their goals by improving different actions necessary to control plans.
Life Coaches usually perform many of the following tasks:
Evaluating the outcome of the tasks.
Providing structured questions.
Planning future tasks.
Making clients aware of their progress.
Must be a good listener.
Must have good communication skills.
Have empathy and being an empath gives me the edge most Life Coaches do not have.
Being able to motivate others.
Having an understanding of human psychology.
Being a good listener.
Having interpersonal skills.
Having organizational skills.
Being able to work with people from different backgrounds.
Being able to engage in critical thinking.
These are all things I have extensively been educated on during my 4+ years of training at ICF.
