Why Life and Career Coaching is Much Needed Now More Than Ever

In recent trends, social media has seen many life and career coaching ads with the industry flourishing now more than ever. Although the profession has been around for a while, how prevalent it is these days makes you wonder: why exactly would you need a life coach? 

Here are some typical reasons why life and career coaching is much needed now more than ever before. 


1. Loss of job due to the pandemic

Throughout 2020, over 114 million people lost their jobs due to the Coronavirus pandemic. With a global lockdown and little or no need for official duties, there was no reason to keep paying workers who had to stay home indefinitely. 

Unfortunately, you may be one of them. 

But on the flip side, this is an opportunity to reevaluate your career path. There could be some other job or career that may offer – more meaningful work than the previous one had done. This could be a turning point for that change you’ve always desired. And a life and career coach can help you access your ultimate desires for your ideal career.


2. You’ve had time to reflect

Being at home with your family for months on end may have given you enough time to think about how you’d wish to spend most of your time – moving forward. 

That job you’ve been doing for years before the lockdown, how much time did it allow you to spend quality time with your family doing what you love? How much did it offer you financially, psychologically, and otherwise? 

Life and career coaching offers you the opportunity to reflect, reinvent, and design a new path to a more holistic approach to work and life. 


3. You still haven’t found your Purpose

Even as an adult, you may not have found that thing that gives you an ultimate sense of purpose and fulfilment— the Japanese refer to this as your Ikigai, your reason for being. So what about your being and purpose makes you jump out of bed every morning? You may have a great well-paying job that offers everything you want, but you feel there’s something still missing. 

Perhaps you have ideas but don’t know how or where to begin. This is a time to seek life and career coaching to help you find clarity, direction, and all the tools you need to live a life of purpose. 


4. You want to take your career to the next level

Now more than ever before, people are looking to do more, to be more. You’ve achieved all the goals you set out in the beginning. Now could be a time to set new ones. 

By working with a life and career coach over 4-6 sessions, you can set new goals and design an effective path to take your career to the next level. 

5. You desire self-development 

Life and career coaching can help build your self-awareness, emotional intelligence, resilience, and ability to contribute to your world. You may long to make an impact and give back to your society, but you don’t know how to begin. A life and career coach becomes somebody you want to partner with to establish your values, take a giant leap in your personal development and reinvent yourself.

Bottom Line

Notably, we’re experiencing an all-time high in demand for life and career coaching due to the situation the world has been thrown into. The pandemic and the growing search for ultimate happiness are just a few reasons why.

Life and career coaching typically harnesses knowledge, psychology, and stats of people’s lives and careers throughout history. Coaches use this knowledge to help steer you to avoid common mistakes, make the right decisions, and live the kind of life known to foster ultimate happiness and fulfilment.

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.
