Life Coaching with a professional coach is the practice of supporting an individual, referred to as the client, mentee or coachee, through the process of achieving a specific personal or professional result.
The structure and methodologies of coaching are numerous but are predominantly facilitating in style; that is that the coach mainly asks questions and challenges the coachee to find answers from within himself/herself based on their values, preferences and unique perspective.
Coaching is different from therapeutic and counseling disciplines since clients are considered healthy (i.e., not sick) and move forward from their present situation. There are a variety of approaches within the coaching methodology. Coaching is performed with individuals and groups, in person, over the phone and online/Skype. (Wikipedia)

Although anyone can call themselves a Life Coach, I personally believe that it is only ethical to have schooling and become certified. ICA holds four graduations per year and I am on schedule to graduate in June 2012. I am already life coaching.
