Life Coaching

Are You Tired Of Feeling Stuck In Life?

Do you feel like you can’t make any progress in life, no matter how hard you try? Does it seem like the future you always wanted is slipping away from you? Are you struggling to navigate a major life transition and wondering where your life will go from here?

Maybe you feel stuck at your current job and want a career change. Perhaps you’re in a relationship that you’re no longer happy with and you’re having second thoughts about staying in it. As much as you want to make changes in your life, you might doubt your own abilities. Your lack of confidence and limiting beliefs could hold you back from achieving your hopes and dreams.

Deep down, you probably wish you had someone supportive in your life who could help you develop a plan for accomplishing your goals. If this is the case, we encourage you to connect with a certified life coach here at Pinkerton Psychotherapy. Our coaching sessions provide a safe, judgment-free space for you to explore yourself and your hopes for the future.


Everyone Goes Through Times Of Uncertainty And Self-Doubt

At some point in life, all of us have to reckon with the existential questions of: Who am I? What do I really want in life? And what do I have to do to get what I want? For most of us, these questions arise the most during major life transitions. Losing a loved one, starting a new career, or going through a breakup or divorce are all changes that can shake up our very identity. They create self-doubt and fear of the unknown.

Unfortunately, our modern culture only makes this fear and self-doubt worse. There is so much pressure for us to have it all together at a young age. Social media has created a false reality of picture-perfect relationships and lavish lifestyles. Because other people only post the highlights of their lives, many of us feel like we’re the odds one out. We think we’re the only ones who can’t keep it together. As a result, our self-esteem often plummets and we struggle with feelings of inadequacy.

Life coaching is a chance to step away from these cultural pressures and focus on yourself. You don’t have to be in competition with anyone. At Pinkerton Psychotherapy, we want to help you increase your confidence and create a roadmap for future growth and success.

Life Coaching Can Help You Make Your Hopes And Dreams A Reality

While therapy is very helpful, it is often very focused on the deeper work of resolving trauma and getting to the root of your emotional pain. Life coaching is more practical, skills-based, and goal-oriented. It’s an opportunity to set goals and make a plan to reach them. In this way, coaching is the logical next step in the therapeutic process. Once the problems have been identified, it’s time to create real-life solutions that help you work toward your hopes and dreams.

What To Expect In Sessions

In our practice, we seek to meet all our clients wherever they are in life. We provide coaching for both individuals and couples and personalize our treatment plans based on each client’s needs. Above all, we strive to build a trusting relationship with you and an environment where you can say whatever you want without fear of judgment. We believe that a safe, trusting relationship is the best ingredient for improving your life. When you feel supported, it’s much easier to find the motivation to change your situation.

As you and your life coach work together, you’ll explore your core beliefs and values and how they inform who you are today. What are the values that you hold dear in life? What qualities do you look for in other people? What makes a relationship healthy and stable in your opinion? Answering these questions can help you understand what goals are worth pursuing in your life.


Tailoring Your Coaching Plan

One of the main approaches we draw from in life coaching is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The goal of CBT is to change the way you think about your own thinking. CBT can help you become aware of negative self-talk and limiting beliefs in your life. This awareness can help you change the way you think, which makes it easier to change your emotions and behavior.

Additionally, our practice often uses role play to help clients arrive at practical solutions in their lives. If you have a big interview coming up or you’re trying to work through a relationship problem, role play can help you map out your actions and behave deliberately instead of reactively in tense situations.

In the end, the best thing about life coaching is that you get to the lead the way and choose what to work on. Your life coach is there to help you increase your confidence and make your goals a reality. No matter how stuck you feel, we believe that coaching can help you navigate this time of transition and find the path forward in life.

You May Have Some Questions About Life Coaching…

Does coaching actually work?

Coaching works because it is future-focused and seeks to identify what’s really important to you in life. It can help you build on your strengths and work on your weaknesses so that you are more prepared for challenges related to your job, your relationships, and your health. As long as you are willing to put in the work it takes to achieve your goals, coaching can benefit every area of your life.

What if I can’t afford coaching?

It’s good to be frugal financially. But at the same time, most of us are more than willing to spend money on Netflix subscriptions, gym memberships, and other commitments. Coaching is an investment, but it’s one that can have a lasting impact on the rest of your life. It’s an investment in your future—a chance to work toward a more prosperous and fulfilling tomorrow.

How do I know which type of coaching is right for me?

When you’re looking for a life coach, it’s good to consider each coach’s professional background and experience. But above all, the most important thing is the relationship you have with your life coach. We encourage you to find a coach who makes you feel comfortable and you feel like you can trust.
