A Christian life coach works with Christ followers to break through life barriers that are keeping them from the abundant life that God has so clearly promised throughout Scripture.
This abundant life is not represented by material things, although the Lord has a long history of providing such blessings. Rather, the abundant life is discovered in ‘taking every thought captive’ to Christ. In doing so, bondages are broken, anxiety relieved, relationships can be healed, and true peace can be found.
Note: Christian life coaching is not a substitute for counseling/therapy in cases where an individual is in an abusive situation, or in an addictive situation. A Christian therapist would be most appropriate in situations where individuals are not functioning or not functioning well. A therapist will get them back on solid ground, and sometimes beyond.
A coach on the other hand, steps in to help functioning people who are seeking to resolve circumstantial issues that they are struggling with, or simply to help individuals rewire the negative neural pathways that are not serving them, by teaching them to manage their mind in light of God’s Word.
