People often hire life coaches to help them achieve personal or professional goals. A life coach is a trained professional who helps people identify their goals, overcome obstacles, and make lasting changes in their lives. Dr. Freeman’s special sauce is that she’s a life coach AND a medical Doctor so she helps you figure out what is medical and what is mindset. Then you formulate plans together to realize your goals. She specializes in helping women over 40 rediscover feeling youthful and confident. Her approach is shame free and she’s open about incorporating many of Brene’ Brown’s concepts.
Coaching is a process that helps people tap into their full potential and achieve their goals. A life coach is not a therapist or counselor; instead, they help you figure out what you want in life and develop a plan to achieve it.

What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching is a form of coaching that focuses on helping individuals achieve specific personal, professional, or business goals. The life coach provides guidance, support, and accountability to their clients, helping them discover their values, strengths, and what they need to do to succeed. Life coaching can be used to address a wide range of issues, including career changes, weight loss, relationship and family issues, stress management, self-confidence and self-esteem, and overall well-being. It can also help individuals deal with specific challenges, such as job loss, divorce, or the loss of a loved one.
Life Coaching concepts are as old as the Roman and Greek philosophers. Stoics like Epicurus described how the brain works and many of these ideas have been proven by science. Some early ideas have been disproved and they are no longer used in modern Life Coaching.
How does Life Coaching Work?
The coaching process typically begins with an initial consultation, where the coach and the client discuss the client's goals, challenges, and expectations. The coach will then work with the client to develop a personalized plan that outlines specific steps to achieve those goals. The coach will support the client throughout the process, providing guidance and feedback as needed. They may use a variety of techniques, such as visualization, goal-setting, and accountability, to help the client achieve their goals. The length of time and frequency of coaching sessions will depend on the individual needs of the client. Some individuals may only need a few sessions to achieve their goals, while others may require ongoing coaching over a longer period.
