Now… What Does A Life Coach Actually Do?

“So, what does a life coach actually do?”

It’s a question I get all the time.

“I work with people to become more whole, to bring the conflicting parts of themselves into alignment, so that they can fulfill their potential.” (Well, that’s one way of putting it.)

“Okay, but what does that mean?”

“How does it actually work?”

“Is that like a therapist?”

So much of what I do is “new stuff,” not yet in the mainstream and still to be backed up by science, that it is always a huge gift when someone from that world steps up and brings their perspective. Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a neuroanatomist is one of those. Her remarkable story describes life as we experience it, from the two very different parts of our brain – left and right hemispheres.

We have been trained to function almost exclusively from our left brain – to be logical, analytical, and “separate,” living in the past and in the future. Much of my work is to help people retrain themselves to include the right brain experience – to be inclusive, joyful, peaceful, loving and present. More and more, we are recognizing that success and fulfillment in today’s world requires a heck of a lot more right brain than left. Go to http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/jill_bolte_taylor_s_powerful_stroke_of_insight.html for Dr. Bolte Taylor’s Stroke of Insight and find out what’s possible.
