Welcome to a Journey with Joyce

Our Journey this week will explore Life Coaching

Have you asked about or wondered how you could benefit from working with a Life Coach? This week our journey will be to look at the Life coaching phenomenon. 

Life coaching is a co-creative relationship. It is a process in which one works with a coach to set goals, gain focus and clarity or to make sense of their life or situation. It is also a process that allows the client to assess and reconstruct their lives without judgment, label or shame.

Life Coaching is a process through which the average individual can transform their lives or way of thinking and way of being so they can experience their life differently. This could mean dealing with life challenges and conflicts, changing habits and patterns, improving one’s performance, or just exploring more opportunities for success.

Life coaching is a radical and fairly new approach to assisting people. It is a move away from one being helped to one being assisted. The field of life coaching has exploded in the last decade due in part to this feature. 

Who Can Use Life Coaching?

Life coaching is of benefit to those who want to refresh their lives by encountering new perspectives and changing the way they view themselves and the world. 

For too long people with social and interpersonal problems were seen as dysfunctional, inadequate or incapable of helping themselves. Life coaching is a shift away from that perspective to one that claims the individual is the expert in their lives and therefore with the right assistance can lead the most successful life possible to them. 

Who Are Life Coaches

Life Coaches are people trained and who practice solid coaching competencies and code of ethics and standards that guide them in assisting their clients to map out a path to a better and more successful life reality. 

A Change in Global Consciousness 

In the last decade we have witnessed a globe stirring, spiritual awakening and a sense of ownership and accountability on the individual for his thoughts and life choices. As such, we have seen a level of global consciousness and changes as people begin to question their actions and their lives and seek to do better and to have more fulfilling and meaningful lives. 

This emerging global consciousness may very well be a way to help humanity attain a deeper level of spiritual and interpersonal intelligence that will foster optimal wellness in all areas of our lives and peace in our world. 

Life Coaching represents a gradual moving away from the mental limits and boundaries we have lived with for centuries, providing us a new path to reawakening the individual to the strength within themselves to live a more powerful and positive life in which being well and having extraordinary lives is now a possible goal. 


Is there a point in your life where you wonder if there is more for you or something else you should be doing, whether you are living and working to your full potential? There are many times when we put off the nagging thoughts that are asking us to do more and be more. Are you closing your mind to potentially more opportunities for growth and development? Ask a coach!! 

Coaching Actions 

On a piece of paper, make a list of all the things you are doing great in your life and make. Then make a list of all the things you think you can do better. Ask yourself, is there something holding you back from doing better or more? Write down two things you can do to improve the things you think you can do better in. Hold on! Don’t forget to celebrate yourself for those things that you are doing great!!
