Hiring a life coach may seem like a drastic step to take if your life is going well, but the truth is, life coaching is for anyone who would like more out of life—more success, more money, more organization. Life coaching is also ideal for those who would like to improve upon what they have—making their families happier, their careers more fulfilling, their self-esteem higher. Here are the top ten reasons to hire a life coach. If you fall into even one of these categories, consider calling a life coach for a free consultation.

  1. You’re happy with your life overall, but you feel that something is missing – a sense of peace or contentment. Life coaching can help you find out what you really want and can also help if you’re struggling with a particular facet of life, such as time management, organizational skills, or budgeting.
  2. You’re concerned about your family life; for example, you’d like to forge closer connections to your children. Life coaching can help you find ways of relating to your children that are respectful of their stages of growth and allow you to be their friend as well as their parent.
  3. You’re single and rely on your friends for support, so you’d like to expand your social network. A life coach can give you tools to create a more fulfilling or exciting social life.
  4. You have financial goals you’d like to reach by a particular age or career stage, but you’re unsure how to meet those goals. Life coaching can also help if you’re not sure how to get what you want out of life given your existing financial status.
  5. Your career seems to be stalled, and you’re unsure of how to get it moving again – or you’re contemplating a change in careers. Life coaching can give you the tools you need to embark on a career that is more in line with your values and belief system.
  6. You have dreams you put on the backburner while you were getting your career on track or raising children, and you’d like to resurrect those dreams and put a plan in place to achieve them. A life coach can help you rediscover lost dreams and support you in achieving them.
  7. You’re facing a life transition, such as divorce, death of a loved one, or an empty nest and want to explore the direction you’d like your life to take next. Life coaching is also useful if you’re recovering from a major illness or addiction and could use guidance to figure out where to go from here.
  8. You’d like to improve the quality or quantity of your interactions with your spouse or partner and would like guidance on how best to achieve this. Life coaching can help you learn how to enhance your relationship, for your own sake and for your partner’s.
  9. You want to build your self-esteem and self-confidence so you can achieve more in life. A life coach can help you become more self-aware, as well as get in touch with your inner strengths so you can capitalize on them.
  10. You know exactly what you want next out of life – you just need a plan of action and moral support. A life coach offers guidance as you bring your goals to reality.
