As a life coach, you would aim to support your clients to help them take control of their situation in areas such as relationships, careers, fitness, work-life balance and self-confidence. Life Coaching is not regulated in the UK, so anyone can work as a life coach if they feel they have the right skills and qualities. However, clients tend to favour coaches who have qualifications.
