Third-quarter this year, I was privileged to be invited to join the life coaching training of LoveYourself for our People Living with HIV (PLHIV) clients. I never thought that I would like to enroll in this training. At first, I was hesitant to join because I don’t think I can assist our clients.

Even though I underwent the training, I still feel that I need to improve many things, which is unsurprising because I’m practically new with the craft. But as I went through the training, I can still sense that I still need to learn more about myself to guide my clients better.

For example, one of the topics that we discussed in training is about the frames of reference. This topic is so important because it helps me understand why certain people act the way they do. It would also help me as their life coach guide them to the path they want in their lives, especially after they knew their status.

One of the most important topics that we discussed is the art of proper questioning. Sometimes, we tend to forget that the questions that we should ask should be framed properly. If we don’t, it might cause dire consequences, especially if our clients are sensitive to the topics. Instead of gaining their trust, we instead drives them away, and it would deteriorate our connections with them, and we don’t want it to happen.

It’s also connected to the previous topic that I discussed in this blog. If we ask the right questions, it will help us uncover their stories, making our journeys even better. It would help our clients reach their desired results as well.

As a life coach, I still need to learn a lot, but I’m very excited about the journey that lies ahead, to be honest.

  1. I really wanted to become a life coach to anyone and I would love to help others, especially in the areas of self-love and mental health awareness. Being a millennial with many good and experiences in battling life’s challenges was actually my biggest point on wanting to become a life coach like you in the near future. For now, I am focusing on writing blogs as my platform to help and provide needs that everyone can rely on.

  2. The best person that I can probably talk more than any other person is a life coach or any person with a life-coach-like-personality. I love to talk about how people behave and why they do such certain thing. Probably because I can learn something new. Something inspiring. Something that would help me gain additional knowledge on how to understand a person. Something that any regular person can’t comprehend about the “whys” of the world.

  3. Welcome to the life coaching realm, Mau. I know you can be a good life coach and you will touch more lives. It’s not an easy calling but it is rewarding and soul-fulfilling. You have my well-wishes and support.

  4. Ohhhh this is so nice of you. Ako idk if I should consider being one kay medyo likoy kaayo ko when it comes to asking questions and sympathizing too 😂

  5. This is a good step to your personal path and career, Maurice. Undeniably, being a life coach is seeing a different perspective of another person and empathizing with them. Totally, it starts with connection and trust while asking the right question. Good thing that you chose to join the training/seminar!

  6. Wow! This is a nice way to utilize what you’ve learned so far. 🙂 This won’t be easy, since you’ll be dealing with different people. Here’s hoping you’ll do really, really well, MJ! 🙂
