Should you only engage a life coach for big life changes or complete career changes?
I believe that we need to have a team of skilled advocates behind us. Engaging a life/career coach is a great way to start focusing on what your life vision looks like and creating a plan for it. In other words, we are working on the future while being present to what we need now. However, if you have challenges letting go of the past like pain, hurt, unforgiveness, these are better tackled by a skilled counsellor. They can help you remove the burdens of the past. If you are experiencing mental health challenges like depression, trauma, phobias, then engaging a psychologist/psychiatrist can help you remove these barriers in your life.
Can you also seek advice from a life coach on how to get a promotion, improve job satisfaction in the job you already have, gain confidence in public speaking for instance?
While during the coaching sessions, advice is not given, you still have access to the numerous experience, resources and connections that I have to share with you. They may come in the form of articles, books, an introduction to other professionals, and of course, the experiences and stories I have collected over the years. I strongly believe that we are all creative, resourceful and whole. Thus, many times, the solution is in us and it takes a skilful partner coach to help you access your wisdom. So using coaching sessions, the resources and your wisdom, you can get the life you want.
Is a life coach only for rich people having midlife crises?
I have had a life coach in my life from the day I discovered coaching. I am still being coached presently. This is because life is ever-changing and there is always something to be coached on. With coaching, I find myself having a lot of clarity, improved mindfulness of who I am as I step into any uncertainty in my life. I see this in all my clients as they move through the coaching sessions with me. Once you have that clarity in the purpose and meaning of your life and you are willing to do the work, inevitably freedom and joy comes in abundance.

What should clients be asking themselves before engaging a life or career coach?
Ask yourself, DO YOU FEEL you have ‘everything’ but you’re not happy? You drag your feet to work every day even though you’re paid well, and are great at your job? You need help but don’t know what kind of help you need? Lost? Maybe you’re taking care of everyone else in your life, but yourself. Do you project a strong, can-do-everything persona to everyone else, but inside you feel low on confidence and self-esteem? Or maybe you’re losing control of your life, going through it on autopilot?
Should you only engage a life coach for big life changes or complete career changes?
A coach can help you in the following way to approach a big life change or a complete career change:
- Help you understand where you stand currently
- Help you identify what you are looking to achieve
- Understand your values and belief systems to match your journey of change
- Help create an action plan to accomplish it
- Provide support, guidance and direction on the way
Can you also seek advice on how to get a promotion, improve job satisfaction in the job you already have, gain confidence in public speaking for instance?
Absolutely. A coach can guide you, support you and help you with the direction to work towards, especially with things like public speaking and gaining confidence with tools and techniques that can be used for the same.
Is a life coach only for affluent people?
Not at all. Life coaching may be defined as a collaboration between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to the client. The best part about this process is that the client finds his/her own solutions and answers through the quality of questions and guidance provided. It does not matter what economic strata you come from. If you invest in yourself by way of working with a coach, it will only give you invaluable benefits in your life. A coaching session involves questions asked by the coach and through these questions she will guide you, nudge you a little, make you see your issue from another angle or direction. That’s all. Ultimately it is you, who will find the answers and solve all your problems.

We got in touch with Rainy to address some life coach FAQs:
What are some common questions you’re often asked?
The questions vary by a client’s needs, but the ones I frequently hear include:
- I feel my life is falling apart and I’m losing control of everything. What should I do?
- I am 40 and I’m afraid to lose a stable income and start all over again. And yet, I feel that I am meant for more. How
- can you guide me?
- It’s a tough situation at work. I’m stuck and I feel like giving up. Can you help me?
- I don’t believe that I am good enough and I feel like an impostor. What should I do?
Why should you engage a life coach to help you through big life or career changes?
Having a coach as your accountability partner helps you beat procrastination, allows you to stay on track so that you can achieve the goals you want quickly and easily. But it isn’t about whether you should or should not engage a life coach. In fact, the better question is, what do you want? When you answer ‘Yes’ to the following questions, you will know what is the right thing to do when it comes to overcoming life or career changes:
- Do I want a guide who can show me my blind spots so I can stop sabotaging my personal and professional life?
- Do I want to gain clarity and know exactly what I need to do to move forward?
- Do I want to master my mind and emotions so that I can solve bigger problems, take on bigger responsibilities and increase my earning capacity?
- Do I want someone to support me in my journey so I can feel safe and secure through these changes?
- Do I want to have a reliable accountability partner to keep me on track and achieve my goals?
How does life coaching help gain self-confidence to face these career challenges?
When clients first come to me, they feel that they don’t know what they can do to move forward. But after our coaching conversation, they leave with clarity and certainty, knowing exactly what they can do. The truth is, clients are the experts of their own lives; my job is merely to guide them to draw out the answers within themselves. As a result of knowing themselves better, they are able to get promoted at work, feel more fulfilled and happier, and gain more confidence to accomplish their goals.
What can I do if I’d rather not have in-person sessions?
I offer online sessions, and I’d also encourage you to take advantage of the networking opportunities and helpful contacts within my Heart Talk community. The goal of this community is to stimulate positive, sustainable growth; Heart Talk does this by supporting, uplifting and nurturing members to grow together in our professional and personal lives.
