What does a life coach do? Colin Slater


Life coaches work with their clients to help them achieve goals, overcome obstacles and make changes or shifts in their lives. The coach works with the client, as a partner, knowing that the client has the answers to create the changes they seek. ...

Coaches do not counsel or offer therapy, as this is best done by certified professionals such as counsellors and psychologists.


A life coach helps people  

·       To move forward and set personal and professional goals that will give them the life they really want.

·       who might be a bit stuck or simply want to make changes in their lives and want the support of their own personal coach to do it.

·       1. Find Your True Purpose in Life

Life coaches know that finding one's purpose isn't something that requires lengthy meditating on a mountain top, however useful that maybe, rather they know that an individual's true purpose comes from a special combination of their hidden talents and passions.

·       A life coach will help you uncover those talents and passions that will then reveal to you your true purpose in life - the pursuit of which will fill your life with the happiness and contentment you've been seeking for so long.

·       2. Get Crystal Clear on What You Want in Life

Sometimes, we see or hear about other people's success stories and get envious. Other times, we see our friends on Facebook posting pictures of their exotic vacation, and we get depressed. And yet at other times, we yearn to simply be ourselves. What a mess.

Your life coach will help you to cut through all that chaos, and zero in on what you really, truly want in life. They'll help you identify those unnecessary wants and desires in your life, so that you can zero in on what's important - the goals and dreams that will make you happy, and no one else.

·       3. Build Your Confidence

Whatever it is you do in this life, you'll do it better and with more enjoyment when you're confident. The opposite is also true - even the simplest tasks can be outright terrifying when you don't have the confidence you need. Life coaches understand this better than anyone else.

But more importantly, your life coach will help you solve any self-esteem problems you may have. They will guide you as the days go by, helping you acknowledge and celebrate those little victories along the way, building your courage and confidence to conquer even bigger challenges in life.


4. Get Motivated

Sometimes, when we least expect it, life punches us in the face. We lose our jobs, we lose a loved one, we fall into old bad habits, we sink into depression, and so on. And if left alone, it could take years - if ever - to get back to our old awesome selves again.

That's where your life coach can help. They're your number one fan, and will jump in to motivate you out of your funk.

Let's get mushy: Your life coach loves you. And they'll work their tails off to help you get back your winning form.


5. Get the Tools You Need to Reach Your Goals

Life coaches aren't just about words and motivation. Your life coach, if they’re any good, goes down into the trenches with you. As you continue grinding towards your goals, your life coach will be right next to you, sleeves rolled up and hands dirty.

Life coaches understand this one sacred truth in life: That it's action, not words, that makes things happen. Your life coach will arm you with the tools and skills you need to accomplish more of your goals in much less time.


6. Grow Spiritually

As happiness and success starts flowing into your life, you may find yourself at a crossroads. It's like while you’re happy with how awesome your life has become so far, there's still something missing. This "something missing" is the reason why even the seemingly most successful people in the world still turn to life coaches for guidance.

The magic happens when you find a life coach who's also on the same spiritual page as you are. Not only will you begin to understand "how" the world works, but also "why" it works the way it does.

My advice? To get the complete package right from the beginning, find a life coach who's spiritually on the same wavelength as you.




7. Live the Life You've Always Wanted for Yourself

You might already have goals for your life, and you might have already made a plan to reach those goals. Unfortunately, as often happens, the real world gets in the way. If your goals and plans seem more and more unachievable as the years go by, then now's the perfect time to get a life coach.

Life coaches know better than to heap unrealistic expectations on you. Rather, they help you work with what you already have, and teach you the skills and abilities to finally get that breakthrough you desperately need.

8. Get the Guidance and Support You Need

Have you ever read or heard news of superstar athletes, famous politicians, and influential politicians make careless decisions that ruin their careers? That's the danger of success - it can take you places where your character can keep up with you.

Your life coach will keep you from going too fast. They will keep you accountable both to your game plan and to your deepest values. That way, as your success grows, your character will grow in stride with it.


9. Find True Happiness

Happiness may not be the most important thing in life, but it definitely helps every important thing in life! Your life coach will teach you how to cultivate happiness throughout your personal journey to success, even in the smallest tasks.


10. Get Coached Remotely

Best of all, you don't need to go out to meet a life coach in their office for expensive hourly sessions. You can more easily find your life coach online, or over the phone, saving time, money, and energy.

Listening without judgement in confidence

VLOG Adelaide Life Coaching

Colin Slater Life Coach and Mentor

You may be wondering how I came to be in Life Coaching?

I remember listening to Tony Robbins and was fascinated by his presentations, using NLP strategies,

how powerful and life changing they were and I wondered, how does he do that?

I learnt more about life coaching and took a course in NLP ( Neuro linguistic programming) Life Coaching with

the Coaching Institue in Melbourne in 2009 and my life has never been

the same since, in a good way, because I have learnt a wealth of information about mind, heart and gut connections.

I was blown away by some of the learnings, about being curious, taking on feedback,

not taking it personal and how to present ideas.


I had issues with self-belief, not being enough and fears of not fitting in.

My life is a work in progress as I learn how incredible the human mind is and 

How capable it is to adapt and grow, yes it is flexible and it's plasticity is amazing.

This means new neural pathways can be created to overcome all sorts of limiting beliefs.


I learnt how the mind works, or not in some cases and how to work with it

to change limiting thinking  and habits to allow people to live better lives,

more in alignment with supportive values and beliefs.


I was able to get my life in order and now I work with other people to transform their lives. 

That was ten years ago and since then I have learnt a lot about human behaviour, patterns and stories we tell ourselves.


I'm more compassionate and empathetic to others who are really doing the best they can with what they know.

Quite often the things my clients fear or are anxious about do not occur and they are constructs in their minds which can be removed, replaced or changed by changing how we think about them or what we believe them to mean.

It doesn't change the events or the experience, however it does change the meaning we give to them and that's important.


My mission now is to make a diffence in people's lives, helping them to come up with strategies to improve their own lives.

Yes you can change your thinking and change your life.
