Life Coaching

What is life coaching?

Life coaching is a service that combines skills and techniques used in many different disciplines to achieve personalized results. There are elements of therapy, consulting, social support, and athletic coaching integrated into life coaching practice.

The best part about life coaching is the ability to customize the experience to your specific needs at any given point in time. For example, a man considering ending his marriage and worried about maximizing his potential at work has a very different set of needs than a woman considering throwing her hat in the ring for an overseas promotion and hoping to change the dynamic in her relationship with her siblings.

What both of these scenarios have in common is the ability to benefit from life coaching.

How is life coaching different from therapy?

Therapy is a mental health tool used by professionals trained in psychology and psychiatry. It focuses on exploring past traumas or issues in an effort to resolve lingering problems. A great deal of focus is directed toward events of the past and relating those events to current circumstances.

Life coaching takes a more immediate and direct approach. The process strives to identify your current set of needs and goals, and structure a plan to achieve success as you define it.

Is life coaching a long-term process?

The amount of time you spend working with Dr. Wong on life coaching depends on your unique needs, strengths, and challenges. Unlike therapy, there is no inherent belief that the process must take a long period of time.

Many men and women pursue life coaching when they are faced with an unusual challenge that they’re unsure how to navigate. They use the support and guidance Dr. Wong offers to approach their problem in a new way, and find a path to success that feels rewarding and worthwhile. That doesn’t have to be a long and overly involved process.

If you’re searching for assistance with a challenge or need support or stress management, and encouragement to take the next step in your life, consider sitting down with Dr. Wong to learn more about her approach to life coaching and how it can help you identify, define, and achieve your goals. You can book a visit by phone or through the easy online scheduling option.
