Book Description

This work is for psychotherapy section, and for healthcare professionals. This manual is specifically designed for therapists, counsellors and other helping professionals who are looking to add life coaching techniques to their portfolio of skills. Dave Ellis, author of "Falling Awake", has produced a step-by-step practical guide to turning your natural people helping skills into a profitable life coaching business. Life coaching is not therapy, but many of the qualities that therapists possess, and the techniques they use, naturally lend themselves to a life coaching approach. Because Ellis advocates a more directive approach than most authors of life coaching books, this book will naturally appeal to therapists and counsellors used to conducting therapeutic interventions. Life coaching is a fast growing profession and many think it will replace therapy as the primary intervention to get people to live more positive, happy and goal-oriented lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Helpful Book on Life Coaching December 24, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am studying to be a Life Coach. I found this book to be extremely clear and well-organized. It kept my attention throughout. In fact, once I started reading it I didn't want to put it down. I learned a lot from this book and am already practicing the techniques that it covers in my own coaching practice. I recommend this book to all helping professionals, even those who are experienced with Life Coaching. I also want to mention that I have written 12 books myself and am therefore a VERY discriminating reader. It says a lot that I have given this book such high accolades!

This is an excellent book, very well written. As a practicing Life and Business Coach, I found this book to be practical, informative, detailed, and yet un-complicated. It presents clear understanding of some of the challenges of building a Life Coaching Practice, and allows the reader to grow in a progressive way towards better understanding and deeper coaching.
