About Life Coaching
First developed in the 1960s by Thomas Leonard, the concept of "life-planning" has flourished to what is now known as "Life Coaching". Today life coaching has effectively helped many individuals take control of their lives and with the help of Licensed and Certified coaches, create plans to pursue their goals.

Defining Life Coaching
International Coach Federation has defined life coaching "as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, which is particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex environment. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole."
Standing on this foundation, the coach's responsibility is to:
- Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
- Encourage client self-discovery
- Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
- Hold the client responsible and accountable
At VeryHuman, we aim to help our members maximize his or her full potential, and walk them through a journey of healing and empowerment. We understand the challenges and struggles that our members face, and therefore, our life coaching is free for all members.
