If you are having personal problems and are seeking solutions, it may be unclear where to turn. You may wonder: Should I reach out to a personal consultant or a life coach?
What a Personal Consultant Can Do for You
There are many benefits to speaking with a personal consultant, such as Kendall Van Blarcom. Consulting can be a great way for individuals to seek and find answers about their lives. To make their lives more fulfilling by having an individual to talk about their problems with.
With specialized knowledge—Kendall has experience as a therapist but now focuses on personal consulting—consultants can work toward solutions unique to your situation. For example, as a senior helping seniors, Kendall understands the unique challenges faced by seniors and their caregivers. He has become attuned to the emotional support needed.
In many cases, seniors and their caregivers aren’t in need of the analysis a therapist provides. But they do thrive when they have a confidant they can trust. This is the perfect role for a personal consultant.
Learning from a Life Coach
First of all, there is no licensing or certification to being a life coach. While many have gone through different schools of coaching, there is no set training. Anyone can call themselves a life coach. If you are interested in hiring a coach, you may want to research some of the facts and fictions around life coaching and speak to individuals you trust to find a reputable life coach to help you on your path to happiness.
Coaching is a process, it is the action of setting and achieving goals. If you opt to hire a life coach, that person should be able to assist you with this focus in mind. They will assess your strengths and help you use them to achieve your goals.
If you are coping with bigger problems, such as anxiety and depression, you may want to find an individual who has experience as a mental health professional.
What Service Is Right for Me?
It truly depends on your situation.
Many find personal consulting sessions with Kendall to be the right choice because you can have sessions right at home. All you need is a phone or an internet connection to have your session. If you are a senior with mobility issues, this takes care of transportation issues. If you are a caregiver, this means you don’t have to miss paid work time to seek help. Sessions are completely private. When you speak with a personal consultant, the relationship is built on trust, everything you share is held in confidence.
A life coach is someone who can help you move forward. Often described as a co-creative process, a coach will help you determine which of your life goals are important to you and then help you to create the life you have imagined.
