A life coach is someone who helps you reach a goal or make a change in your life.
They support you and hold you accountable to achieving your vision for yourself. Whatever it is that you want in your life, they help you get there.
They can help you to pinpoint the blocks or obstacles that are making you feel “stuck” and help you to move through them. They may also guide you through a life transition, such as finding a new career.
You might call them a “change facilitator” or a “courage catalyst”.
A life coach is not a therapist. They will focus mostly on looking toward your future, rather than dealing primarily with your past.
While they may offer you suggestions, new ideas or action steps, they are not advice-givers.
Instead, they listen to you and ask you the right questions to help you find your path, your truth, and your answers. Then they help you to align your life with who you are and what you want.

“As a New Muslimah I struggled with taking on a new Identity. I often felt unsure about where my life was going and embarrassed to ask for help. I had problems dealing with non-Muslim family and friends and I often felt overwhelmed with all that I had to learn. These challenges made me look deeper into my own self and find ways to push me to grow as a person. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you. That is the core of New Muslimah life Coaching. Together we can overcome any obstacles in sha’ Allah.”
