Benefits of Coaching for You and Your Family

Coaching has gradually become a booming field. But you may ask, how does coaching benefit you as an individual?

The benefits of coaching are far-reaching as they touch on several key areas of life, including relationships, career decisions, family and health.

But the best thing is that your coach isn’t just a professional certified in some course (like therapists) but will likely be someone who has walked that path, experienced highs and lows, learnt from setbacks, bounced back, and succeeded. For example, a family coach will typically have their own happy family! Therefore, practically equipped to offer you the secrets to that path.

At Frolic For Life, that’s precisely what you get. We’re a team helping kids and their parents get the best out of life — as a family and as individuals. You see, we’re all parents, so we know how to navigate life and parenthood with the best tools to support us along the way.

Whether you’re a kid, an adult, a personal development freak, or a parent with kids, the benefits of coaching are something you don’t want to pass up on. Your coach can help you identify your strengths, develop them, and navigate your professional and personal goals. They can also help you learn ways to raise great kids and live harmoniously as a family while maintaining a good work-life balance.


So here are some Benefits of Coaching worth mentioning:

1.    Gain better clarity around your strengths and purpose

One of the greatest benefits of coaching is the clarity it offers regarding your strength and purpose. In short, most people look up to coaches when they perceive their life to be devoid of much meaning, or they’ve lost sight of their goals.

The goal of your coach here is to help you see yourself differently — to transform you. They work to bring clarity to your own thoughts and beliefs regarding life issues. This clarity about who you are (regarding your strengths) can direct you towards your true life calling.


2.    Coaching empowers you to work through solutions to problems

No matter how smart you may be, there comes a time when you seem hooked between a rock and a hard place. It may be a problem in your marriage, kids, career, or something with your emotions.

Perhaps, what you need is keen external eyes to view your situation from outside; maybe not just any friend or acquaintance, but someone with deep insight. That’s where a coach comes in. Coaching is a safe place where you can discuss sensitive issues without fear of judgment.

A coach will not just proffer a solution or suggestion as a friend does but will walk you every step of the way. In short, a coach will typically not decide for you. It’s about analysing your situation and empowering you with the tools to make your own decisions.


3.    Helps you focus and engage with YOU

Again, coaching is beyond the kind of interactions you have with a best friend. Coaching engages you with its unique one-on-one interaction and long-term encouragement. It becomes a space where you are able to focus on yourself and give yourself that introspective, we sometimes forget we need as we get caught up with the day-to-day busy lives we all have.

Your coach will engage you continuously regarding whatever life or family issues you may be facing. A chance to really work on YOU. And the longer you stay engaged, the harder it is for you to derail from your transformation journey. For example, if your teen child keeps receiving encouragement from their coach, they wouldn’t easily fall victim to teenage delinquencies.


4.    Coaching helps with goal setting and planning to take action

Have you always struggled to set goals? Or maybe you do set goals quite alright, but you just can’t follow through to the end. It’s most likely because you don’t have someone checking in on you, compelling you to stay accountable.

When you work with a coach, your life becomes their priority. With their assistance, you can create strategic and realistic steps to actualise your goal, and they engage you till the finish line.


5.    Creating healthy choices and habits

The benefits of coaching are also seen in the creation of healthy choices and habits that ultimately promote your well-being.

Everyone faces unique challenges when it comes to staying healthy. Health is crucial to your happiness, and this all comes down to the kind of habits and choices you make daily.

A health coach can help you create personalised strategies or make changes based on your unique lifestyle to achieve optimum health. They offer continuous support as you part ways with unhealthy habits while staying true to healthier ones to improve your quality of life.


6.    Helping you with accountability and self-awareness

Staying accountable is one of the most significant benefits of coaching. You may not follow through with your goals when you have no one checking in on your progress. A coach can also help you become aware of your blind spots and weaknesses. When aware of these areas, you can join hands with your coach and work towards improving them.

Through coaching, individuals can ultimately gain a deeper understanding of themselves, work on personal development, and become more accountable for their own lives and decisions. This self-awareness piece is very important to realise your own true potential and areas where you need more guidance.


The benefits of coaching are diverse and work together to improve a person’s quality of life. And the best way is to start early. So, if you’ve got kids and teens… Why not get them a coach to leverage the same opportunity that a lot of people around the globe are benefiting from? And you as parents or individuals – it’s always good to catch a new perspective, adopt some change and build a more meaningful life for yourself. Contact Us, for a FREE discovery consultation today.

We engaged Coach Andrea for my 12 year old at a point where my child was going through a period of emotional roller-coaster and often angry. Andrea is very kind, approachable, warm and patient that my child feels comfortable opening up to her. Having another adult, rather than us parents, to talk gave her a safe outlet. She taught my child useful life tools to help better manage her anger. We saw improvements and happy with the impact Coach Andrea had on my child. I would highly recommend Coach Andrea to any parent!

Rebecca has been a great help to me during my long and challenging fertility journey. From my very first session with her, I felt instantly at ease. Rebecca took great care to really understand my story, my journey so far, my disappointments and my hopes. I found her questions incredibly insightful and perceptive. Together, we uncovered a number of unresolved issues and she handled all our conversations with the utmost sensitivity and empathy. Rebecca is genuinely passionate about helping anyone with fertility issues and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is looking for someone authentic and caring to speak to.

I was really struggling with stress and not knowing how to manage it effectively. It felt like everything was spiralling out of control and I was constantly reacting emotionally to situations. However, after just a few coaching sessions with Rebecca, I feel like I've turned a corner. She has helped me to see things (and myself) from a different perspective and given me lots of guidance on living a more purposeful and stress-free life. I'm now much more mindful of my thoughts and actions, and after implementing all the tools learnt in our sessions, I’m finally learning how to manage my stress and am feeling calmer and more in control than ever before. If you're struggling with stress, I would highly recommend Rebecca- she's truly transformed my life!

My children, aged 11, did Life Coaching with Coach Andrea. Andrea has a soft touch - she was very approachable, gentle, kind and patient with them, offering valuable lessons on how to lead a healthy life, in both mind and body. The materials were presented in a fun way, in the format of games and videos, so it was understandable and digestible. Having another adult, rather than us parents, talk with the kids helped them be more receptive to all the topics too. The kids really enjoyed her pre-recorded meditations for night time to help them relax before bed. The pre-teen/teen years can be an emotional roller coaster ride for both kids and parents, but I feel that Andrea’s coaching (she even helped me with some great pointers) has really helped us prepare with valuable tools to better navigate what’s ahead! It’s definitely a worthwhile investment and would highly recommend to anyone and their kids!

The moment I heard about Kids Life Coaching from Coach Andrea, I knew I had to sign my kid up for it. Coach Andrea helped to show my pre-teen the tools she needs to cope with all sorts of things life throws at her now, and prepare her for what it will throw at her in the future. I think it was a bit challenging to get things out of her in the beginning, but after building a relationship with her, it became easier. I recommend Kids Life Coaching with Coach Andrea strongly because it’s so important for kids to learn these coping tools, or as she puts it: Superpowers!

Frolic for Life’s Kids Life Coaching with Coach Andrea was such a great experience for my pre-teen son. Coach Andrea helped him with a transition to a new school and then a transition to a new country one year later! It was so helpful for him to have so many tools in his back pocket to deal with all of the emotions and big feelings. Having an extra adult in his life who he could confide in and trust with his feelings was really important to us. Especially living far from extended family. He really appreciated the role she played for him and felt pretty cool having his own “life coach”. I highly recommend Coach Andrea. She is so excellent with this age group. She really knows how to talk to pre-teens and earn their respect and trust without judgement.
