What is Intuitive Life Coaching?
Intuitive life coaching is a coaching approach that seeks to develop deep connections between body, mind, and spirit using emotional and spiritual healing methods.
An intuitive life coach combines intuition with various other life coaching methods to help clients break down and address barriers, and to move forward in all areas of life, including:
- Relationships (Family & Love)
- Self-Love and Self-Care
- Finding Purpose and Meaning
- Career Building
An intuitive life coach is similar to a spiritual life coach. They both help clients learn how to attract positive energy, and find the connection between themselves and the Universe.
Intuitive life coaches, though, emphasize the importance of the client’s own intuition. By helping clients connect with their intuition, they guide them to recognize their own issues and strengths, and to find wholeness. Spiritual intuitive coaching combines spirituality and intuition.

Let’s talk about what you can expect during an intuitive life coaching session. Intuitive life coaches focus on breaking down mental and spiritual barriers, as well as strengthening the connection of the mind, body, and spirit. Here are some of the common methods used to achieve these ends.
This method of life coaching helps clients use creativity to tap into their own inner experiences. Creative exercises like journaling or vision boards reveal a client’s emotions and blockages.
Sometimes a client just needs a little compassion to break down blockages and identify issues. An intuitive life coach can provide listening exercises and opportunities for peaceful communication during a coaching session.
Contemplation & Meditation
Guided contemplation is a great tool to use in an intuitive life coaching session. It helps to unite the mind, body and spirit. Guided meditation for example, is a method of contemplation.
The purpose of this method is to provide healing and change at a subconscious level. This healing is done through the process of hypnosis. A certified hypnosis, intuitive life coach will use hypnotherapy to help clients to reach learning, fulfillment and performance goals.

This intuitive life coaching method comes from India and focuses on a spiritual energy center within the body. An intuitive life coach can use chakra healing to help clients find balance and harmony. Chakra healing requires training and certification.
The Benefits of Intuitive Life Coaching
Hiring a life coach is beneficial for so many reasons. Through the modification of thoughts and emotions, intuitive life coaching makes it possible for a client to create their desired life. Intuitive life coaching shows clients how to identify and address self-impairing thoughts and habits. In turn, they benefit from knowing how to avoid future trauma or damage.
Additional benefits include healing old wounds, hurts, and blockages. The biggest benefit to intuitive life coaching is healing at the highest level between mind, body, and spirit, which helps clients to move forward in a positive direction.
How to Become an Intuitive Life Coach
Embracing an approach that resonates with you, like intuitive life coaching, can be an excellent way of finding your client demographic. Intuitive life coaching is an area of specialization that you might want to consider, especially if you enjoy helping people find their passion and purpose using methods of intuition and spirituality.
If you want to become an intuitive life coach, you should consider earning a certification in several healing methods including:
- Chakra Healing
If you currently have a certification in any of the above-mentioned healing methods, you’re well on your way to becoming an intuitive life coach. If you don’t currently have a certification in reiki or chakra healing for example, it doesn’t mean you can’t be an intuitive life coach. However, earning your certification in the above healing methods will help you to attract clients seeking out those services.
The more you can offer your clients as an intuitive life coach, the better you can help them in their journey toward healing.
