You may have questions about life coaching, what it is and what it isn't. Here are some answers. Contact me if you have more questions or concerns.


What would a typical session look like?

We begin with prayer and a scripture reading. After reviewing what's going on in our lives (yes, my life too), the previous session or a take-home activity, we set goals for the session and then "dig in" for the next 40-45 minutes. There will be questions, frank talk, and discovery. Before calling it a day, we'll look to the next session, talk about needed preparation, and end with prayer. 

Is Christian life coaching counseling or therapy?


Counselors and therapists diagnose and help people deal with their problems and past issues with an emphasis on healing. While life coaches do not dismiss the fact that clients may have problems and past issues that need addressed by other professionals, the emphasis in life coaching is forward, not backward. It is solution-oriented based on the agenda set by you, the client. Counseling and therapy is not for everyone, life coaching is.

Is Christian life coaching spiritual direction? 


Spiritual direction focuses on a person's personal, intimate relationship with God as they listen to God and find meaning in their spiritual journey, especially through prayer and the spiritual disciplines. Christian life coaching focuses on how that relationship is manifested in all areas of a person's life. Spiritual direction has a coaching dimension and Christian life coaching has a spiritual direction dimension.
