"Working with Alex and NextUp Coach has been a true breath of fresh air."

"It has helped me to rediscover and redefine my passions, goals and purpose in life. Each session was an opportunity to pause, reflect and grow and discover these hidden truths about myself.

"After our sessions, I am in an exponentially different place"

"I couldn’t have asked for a better coach than Alex. When we started our sessions I told her I was at rock bottom mentally. For real, those exact words. After our sessions, I am in an exponentially different place, thanks to the healthy habits we explored together. Knowing Alex is (and was) on my team makes me excited for the future again! Taking her course was one of the best things I did for myself this year!"

What is a Life Coach?

Life coaches help you achieve success in many areas of your life. Whether it’s personal or professional goals, a life coach can be a great asset in helping you reach your full potential. A life coach is someone who provides guidance, support and accountability to help you set and achieve your goals.

Life coaching is future focused. A life coach is someone who helps the client get clear on would make their life more fulfilling, and works with the client on how to close the gap between where they are now and where they want to be. A life coach helps their clients develop empowered thought processes and behaviours that are conducive to achieving optimal results and lessening one’s fearful, anxious or negative-biased mindset. Sessions include topics such as goal setting and achievement, focus on improvement and growth, commitment to excellence and accountability, and positive self-talk.

What is the difference between Life Coaching and Therapy?

The main difference between a life coach and a therapist is in the approach each take to helping their clients. In simple terms, a therapist starts where you are and works backwards, helping you understand and identify the events, circumstances and relationships that affect how you’re feeling today. A life coach starts where you are and works forward, helping you identify the things you truly want in your life and how to get there. Certified life coaches use an action-oriented approach that focuses on setting goals and taking steps to achieve them.
