Life Coaches for Better Mental Health This is not your parents’ life coach.
We are more than the sum of our parts. Our careers, life’s goals, mental health, physical well-being, are parts- not to be separated from the whole. Today’s life coaches are well prepared for all of the life’s challenges.
We help you connect your head and your heart in a way that transforms your passion for your dreams into action for your life.1
“We are highly trained as generalists and can coach superbly on any aspect of life. However, we may choose to specialize in one or more of the following areas:
- Confidence, Self-Worth & Self Esteem
- Loving Relationships That Work
- Career Change – Creating Workplaces That Work
- The Mastery of Balance – Juggling a Life
- Self Care – Getting Your Own Needs Met
- Living Your Purpose
- Hot Buttons – Managing Anger, Upsets, Frustration and Stress
- Managing Grief, Loss, Sadness and Change
- Connection Parenting
- Self & Identity – Surviving the Oppressive Over-Culture”
David J Ley Ph.D. 2 “As a psychologist, I’m struck by the shift that such coaching signals for the industry of healthcare. By and large, I think this is a positive trend, emerging in response to need. However, there are important issues to consider, as coaching intersects more explicitly with mental illness.
Here is a real life example3, 4, “Please Live started with a caring teenager who saw a need in the world and decided to address it. As a child, Alexa Moody struggled with depression, which eventually leads to thoughts of suicide as a teenager. She received help and recovered, deciding then to go to college for Human Services. During the 2009-2010 school year, while she was a 19-year-old college student, there was a cluster of suicides within her community. Just minutes outside of Pennsylvania’s capital, Alexa heard of five teen suicides within the course of five months. She was heartbroken. Although she did not personally know any of the teens, her heart was torn for the friends and families left behind (known as suicide loss survivors). It was from this hurt and her personal experiences of depression and recovery that Alexa heard God’s voice telling her to do something about it.
This, I believe, is primarily what makes myself and the volunteers in Please Live qualified to talk about our experiences. We’ve been there. We know what it feels like to suffer in silence, to feel like we’re drowning, and to believe that we are being perfectly logical when, in fact, we aren’t.”
