Menstuff® has information on Life Coach.
What is a Life Coach?
Life coaching is a practice with the stated aim of helping clients
determine and achieve personal goals. Life coaches use multiple
methods they say may help clients with the process of setting and
reaching goals. Coaching is not targeted at psychological illness,
and coaches are not therapists nor consultants.
Since there is no official regulatory standard for life coaching and
no governed education or training standard for the life coaching
industry, anyone can call themselves a coach and take on clients.
Multiple coaching schools and training programs are available,
causing confusion around the terms "certification" and "credentials"
as they apply to the coaching industry. Multiple certificates and
credential designations are available within the industry. The status
of most of these are in flux.
Three standards and self-appointed accreditation bodies are
internationally recognized: the International
(ICF), the International
Association of Coaching
(IAC) and the European
(ECI). No independent supervisory board evaluates these programs, and
they are all privately owned.
