  • Career Prospects


    Life coaching is a growth area as a rising number of people look for ways to improve their lives on both a professional and personal level. Working as a life coach, you will help to encourage and support people to make informed decisions about their careers and personal lives. You will bring the best out of your clients and enable them to make their own decisions to achieve individual growth and fulfilment.

    With demand for life coaching services high, there are a wide variety of job opportunities in this field. You may decide to work for a company that provides these services, or you might choose to set up your own business.

    What you can expect

    You may specialise in one particular area of life coaching, such as business, health, spirituality or wellbeing, or you might offer a more general service. You can also choose between offering individual coaching or group sessions, and decide whether to work with people face-to-face, over the phone or online.

    You will use listening skills and questioning techniques to help clients identify areas that they can develop and improve in, encouraging them to find their own solutions and to set appropriate goals for positive change. You will also provide ongoing encouragement and motivation, helping clients to overcome obstacles and setbacks, and you will keep a record of your coaching practice.

    Many coaches start working part-time, often alongside other jobs, building their hours as they attract more clients.
