Life Coaching Servicesby Duncan William Playing with Minds Life Coaching is not new. Life Coaching as a profession started in the 1980s. Then, it catered more to executives or managers. Now, this profession has developed to cover a lot of areas from helping people choose the right career options to managing difficult personal or professional relationships.

This does not mean that no one can work out things on their own.

These limitations or weaknesses, whether mental, emotional or psychological, create barriers and hold up personal development. This is when a Life Coach comes in.
