Life Coaching


Grow Wellness Group has some of the best Life Coaches in Naperville, IL. They provide coaching in individual life & career choices, as well as executive & team coaching, goal-oriented workshops and wellness solutions for businesses. Life coaching is often looked at as a next step from conventional therapy. Once our emotional resistance is remedied from past obstacles in life, our clients consistently seek out further guidance in how they can achieve their life goals. This involves a deep discovery of self-awareness, implementing new behaviors and investigating possible options & outcomes. Ultimately, accomplishing our life goals based on what will bring us the greatest fulfillment.

What is Life Coaching?

A life coach is a professional who helps clients achieve their personal and professional goals – finding a soul mate, landing a dream job, growing a business, enhancing relationships, achieving health and fitness goals, becoming an effective leader, achieving increased collaboration as an organization or discovering a purpose in life.

Sometimes people are not clear about what exactly they want. Life coaching provides them with guidance on how to make decisions at various crossroads in life.

Life coaching offers no magic bullets or quick fixes. It evolved from the principles of positive psychology and it empowers clients to generate lasting transformation. Just as it takes time to build physical muscles, a life coach helps to build a client’s mental, emotional and spiritual “muscles” so they can approach life more effectively. Clients will gradually develop the strength to face challenges in life with ease, patience and intent.

How do we help our clients?

Life coaching is all about following your own unique path. Grow Wellness Group coaches will help you discover what excites you, what is meaningful to you and what has been holding you back.

Your life coach will provide guidance, support, tools, feedback and accountability. Research shows that people are much more likely to complete a task when they are held accountable for the results, so together you will design a personalized action plan to help you move forward and stay on track.

At Grow Wellness Group, coaching is an intimate, synergistic partnership. By combining intuitive perceptions with cutting-edge coaching techniques, we will help you shift your awareness and connect with a deeper sense of purpose. This will inspire you to take action leading to sustainable change.

What happens during a life coaching session?

We start by understanding your current situation and clarifying your vision. We ask questions designed to challenge your assumptions, encourage your own insights and explore your options. Once your goals and anticipated milestones have been defined, you will make a commitment to taking specific action steps before we meet next. We will then review the progress and make necessary adjustments until you reach your desired results.

New clients usually start with a 3-month commitment. Individual Life Coaching sessions last 30-60 minutes and are most often purchased as a package.

Employer Coaching has a completely different workshop approach to integrate members of your staff, increase collaboration and impact in working towards your organizational goals. Reach out below to discover more about Employer Coaching.

How is Life Coaching different from other therapies?

Coaching and traditional talk therapies work with different paradigms. Of course, each practitioner works differently but therapy tends to treat past emotional issues while coaching considers that clients are healthy, and focuses on where they are now, where they want to be, and how to get there. In general, coaching is more future-oriented and seeks solutions with reasonable action. Through the process of self-discovery, the client becomes the co-creator of the pathway towards transformation.

Our son is a hardworking, young athlete with big, longterm goals.  Despite his dedication to his athletic endeavors, he started to find that his physical preparation and skill work was not enough to achieve the success he was looking for.  It wasn’t enough because he was missing an important part of the big picture…his mental training.  Frustrations over training plateaus, the inability to let go of uncontrollable situations, or maintaining positivity during tough competition are just a few examples of things that were getting in the way of him achieving the most successful experiences possible.  Enter Empower Sports Psychology & Performance Improvement.

They helped my son from the very first session.  He has learned and practiced many skills in his sessions that have translated directly to the practice and playing field, as well as to his life in general, including schoolwork.  Mental challenges that would have broken him six months ago, no longer phase him and, in some ways, make him even stronger now.  He is building tools to manage everything from his goals, to his mindset before big games, to controlling his reactions to circumstances beyond his control, to being kind to himself while still holding himself accountable.  He is most certainly mentally stronger both on and off the field as a result of his coaching with Kevin.  His new found confidence, resulting from his strengthening mental skills, has enabled him to make the most of his physical and skills training, and has allowed him to also find the most enjoyment possible on the field.  Not only that, he has become a leader, by example, amongst his teammates and peers.  As a parent, it’s amazing to witness his progress and translatable successes from his mental skills training.  I only wish we had found Kevin sooner.  It has been a wonderful way for our son to invest his time and energy and he looks forward to each and every session.  We are grateful that Kevin is supporting and growing our son in ways that will help him achieve his goals on the field and in life, and look forward to continuing our relationship for a long time to come.
