celebrate growth love love coach May 27, 2022

Before you even start reading this, you may be thinking, What is a love coach? Well, it’s sort of in the name. The definition of a love coach is someone who offers coaching to improve their clients’ relationships and success in dating and relationships. 

In a previous blog post, we learned what a life coach is and isn't. In this blog, we will learn about what a love coach is and isn’t, the variety of people who can use a love coach, and some of the benefits of having a love coach in your life. 

What love coaching is:

  • Teaching
  • Motivating
  • Guiding 
  • Collaborating 
  • Inspiring 
  • Guiding 
  • Listening 

 

What Love coaching is not:

  • Psychology
  • Medical 
  • Therapy 
  • Advising 
  • Curing 
  • Healing 

 

When it comes to who may need or want a love coach, there are various audiences of people who may need a love coach at some point in their life. 

Some of these people are:

  • Single people looking for the right person
  • Lovers who need to spice up their sex lives 
  • Someone who wants to move their relationship from dating to intimacy
  • Someone who wants to learn how to resolve and Seattle arguments with their partner 
  • Anyone who has trouble dealing with a long-distance relationship
  • Individuals recovering from a breakup

 

With such a variety of people in this world, anyone can benefit from using a love coach at some point in their lives. This could be a couple of sessions to figure out something specific or multiple sessions for a couple of years to make sure we figure it all out. 

 

There are various benefits to using a love coach, and as you read this may be one or multiple of these will stand out to you and be something you can relate to. 

 

Some of the main ones include:

      1. A better love life, sex life, and overall relationships.  

Working with your love coach and figuring out what to do or maybe even improve your overall love and relationships can significantly impact you in the long run. But, perhaps you need advice on something and don't feel comfortable talking about it with friends or family. So here is your time to get it off your chest. 

      2. What your love-specific love life would look like.

This could be a boring love life and needed something a little extra. When working with your love coach, you can find specific ways to help you and your partner expand and spice up your love life to make it look like what you and your partner are seeking. 

      3. Traditional and non-traditional. 

Not everyone has the same type of sex life, which is okay. When working with a life coach, you can be experimental in your sex life and have various options with no judgment. 

      4. Exploration of self and with your lover/partner. 

Looking at your thoughts and behaviors and your lover/partner can help improve your love life and your partners to understand each other better. 

      5. Happier self-image. 

Sometimes we see ourselves differently than others, which can affect our love life and relationships. For example, our partners might think we are the prettiest or most handsome person they have ever seen. Still, if we don't see ourselves the same, it may cause some intimacy problems in the relationship. When working with a love coach, you can start to see what it's like to have a self-image that makes you happy. 

      6. Education on how to have good sex. 

When working with a love coach, you both can develop ways to help and create feelings of relaxation with your partner.

      7. Helps with anxiety and depression. 

This last benefit is self-explanatory, and unfortunately, many of us have anxiety and depression. Your love coach can help you with both and find ways to cope with these feelings. 

 

Working on these with a love coach can improve your personal life and love life in various ways. If you can relate to any of this, you should talk to me! If you click on sessions next to the blog section you are reading right now, you can set up a time to speak with me! I would suggest starting with a "Getting to know you" session to see if we work well together and if this is something you are ready for!

                                                     What is Mindset?

Could what you believe about yourself impact your success or failure? According to Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, Author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, beliefs play a pivotal role in what you want and whether you achieve it.

Dweck has found that it is your mindset that plays a significant role in determining achievement and success. So, what exactly is a mindset?

Mindset Definition:

The established set of attitudes held by someone.

There are two different types of mindset:

People with a fixed mindset believe that these qualities are inborn, fixed, and unchangeable.

Those with a growth mindset, on the other hand, believe that these abilities can be developed and strengthened by way of commitment and hard work.

                                           

                                               What Is Your Mindset?

Do you have a fixed or growth mindset? To find out, start by reading the following statements and decide which ones you agree with most:

 

  • People have a certain amount of intelligence, and there isn't any way to change it.
  • No matter who you are, there isn't much you can do to improve your basic abilities and personality.
  • People are capable of changing who they are.
  • You can learn new things and improve your intelligence.
  • People either have particular talents, or they don't. You can't just acquire talent for things like music, writing, art, or athletics.
  • Studying, working hard, and practicing new skills are all ways to develop new talents and abilities.

If you tend to agree with statements 1, 2, and 5, then you probably have a more fixed mindset. If you agree with statements 3, and 4, 6, however, then you probably tend to have a growth mindset.

                                      

                                        Can You Change Your Mindset?

While people with a fixed mindset might not agree, Dweck suggests that people are capable of changing their mindsets. Parents can also take steps to ensure that their children develop growth mindsets, often through praising efforts rather than focusing solely on results.

 

For example, instead of telling a child that he is "so smart," a parent might commend the child for their hard work on a project and describe what they like the most about the child's efforts ("I really like how you chose the colors for that picture!").

 

By focusing on the process rather than the outcome, adults can help kids understand that their efforts, hard work, and dedication can lead to change, learning, and growth both now and in the future.

Remember that your fixed mindset persona was born to protect you and keep you safe, according to Dweck. But it has developed some very limiting ways of doing that. So, educate it in the new growth mindset ways that it can support you: in taking on challenges and sticking to them, bouncing back from failure, and helping and supporting others to grow.

                           

 

I’m a strong believer in therapy, mentoring and coaching both giving and receiving. I remember when I started therapy and/or coaching it was an exciting and scary time. It was the right direction for the next level of self- growth but my fear was speaking to me, big time.

                                                      

                                                        Fixed Mindset       

What happens if I can’t do this? Will I be able to change? What if it doesn’t work?

See where my mind was taking me, not to a good place. FEAR!

                                                       Growth Mindset

I realized that I needed the right mindset for the process to be successful.

I found a cozy comfortable area with journal in hand, relaxed then took a few deep breathes to center myself and asked the question:

What does my FEAR look and feel like when I think about therapy and/or coaching?

Any excuse to stop the process

Lack of money and time

Problem too hard to face

Anxiety residing in my body, shallow breathing, body pains etc.

What would people think?

I would look weak

Embarrassment

Self-doubt

Therapy is for other people!

It’s too hard!

 

 

When I felt overwhelmed in the therapy/coaching process it was an indicator that I was off. I went directly to my list and would see the reason and immediately laugh at myself in a loving way, pause, take deep breaths and then do a reset!

I go to my toolbox of skills and use the ones that resonate with me. Affirmations are my go-to and are hanging on my walls. I give myself a daily pep talk to keep me focused and these are just some of the simple, yet effective tools!

Remember why I was doing therapy or coaching and reflect on how well it was going, even when it was difficult, and be proud of myself for doing the work. Growth Mindset!

Everyone and I mean everyone, needs some sort of help from another, we don’t do life successfully on our own, humans are not built to function in that way.

                            Everyone one of us had a journey to take.

  • It starts by accepting that we have both mindsets.
  • Then we need to learn to recognize what triggers our fixed mindset.

Failures? Criticism? Deadlines? Disagreements?

  • And we come to understand what happens to us when our fixed-mindset “persona” is triggered.
  • Importantly, we can gradually learn to remain in a growth mindset place despite the triggers

 

Coaching is no different!
