Life Coaching Niches

Possibly THE most stressful part of setting up as a choosing a life coaching niche.

Whereas a niche isn’t an absolute prerequisite, to begin with – it does make branding and marketing a lot easier.

It also helps you to stand out in the crowd and with coaching super competitive that has never been more important.

And if that weren’t enough it also allows you to charge more as you are seen as an expert rather than a jack of all trades.

I ran a post almost 4 years ago after asking my readers for life coaching niches and I thought now may be time to do it again.

Take a look and see if anything inspires you.

All bios were written by the coaches themselves.

Life Coaching Niches

 

Meredith Hooke – The Meditation CoachMeredith Hooke Meditation Coach

I help people find peace and happiness in their personal and professional lives using the tools of meditation, mindfulness and understanding your brain. 

In my 17 years of experience as a meditator, I’ve found that all of our stress and unhappiness is self-created and comes from having an untrained mind; which means it doesn’t have to be that way. 

I teach you how to train your brain and mind to be more positive, calm, focused and resilient. 

Tim’s Note: Meredith just happens to have been my coach on many occasions and she’s awesome!

Vishnu From Vishnus Virtues – The Letting Go Coach

I coach people coming out of devastating divorces and long-term relationships break free of the past and move on.

I help people who are feeling unworthy or like they’re going to be alone forever, let go of the past once and for all.

I help them accept the past and accept themselves so they can move forward and find a happy and healthy relationship.

Your new love story can start when you let go of the old one you’re holding on to.

Marc MacialekMarc Macialek – The Traumatic Brain Injury Coach

I empower people on the traumatic brain injury journey (survivors and caregivers) to make the most of their life, relationships, and professional endeavors after their (or their loved one’s) injury.

The tragic and traumatic changes of life after a brain injury often leave people feeling stuck and unsure how to move forward.

Through my experience, I ask new and important questions to help them learn about their New Normal. As they learn, they can begin to try new ways to do things, set goals, and step confidently and successfully into their new life.

Liz scullyLiz Scully – The Mastermind Coach

I’m primarily a business strategy coach and the backbone of my business is working with clients in Mastermind groups. They’re so effective that I began to train people how to run their own. 

Masterminds are small teams that meet regularly, share information and set goals to be done by the next meeting. The concept is simple but the impact huge. Clients love them and they’re super fun to run.

Best of all they suit almost any kind of coaching or consulting work. 

I teach how to add them to your business in my flagship, 3-day Mastering Mastermind program. Once you learn the basic Mastermind Framework you’ll be well on your way to serving clients in a new effective format and adding a lucrative new income stream.

michael steele coachMichael Steele – The Financial Advisors Coach

Systematize, organize, and replicate your business to better serve your clients and create more time for yourself.

As a business coach focusing on Financial Advisors, I work with my Advisor clients to help them understand their business from the ground up and work on their Systems.

My twenty years in the financial services industry gave me the insight that the top producers are the best at the fundamentals of the business. It is my job to continue to challenge them and be their mirror and sounding board.

For the advisors on the way up, the fun and challenge are working with them on their strengths and production, as well as keeping them on the path of building for the long
term.

My experience in the financial services industry, five years as a college basketball coach, and a number of years as a professional caddie has taught me few things. If you never stray too far from the basic’s, paying attention to the details, or consistent practice, excellence and success will be yours for the taking.

Casey Ryan – The Transforming Addicts into Entrepreneurs CoachCasey Ryan

I work with recovering addicts who are ready to transform their career or step into entrepreneurship. People who are strong in their sobriety, but over time began questioning their purpose and capabilities of success. “Did I overcome so much, just to live a ‘normal’ life?”

With specialized coaching, recovery is taken to the next level by truly letting go of the past and creating an area of focus to find purpose.

Clients learn how to cultivate new relationships, build the entrepreneurial mindset and take strategic action to expand opportunities.

My own recovery experience provides insight into overcoming limiting beliefs. By breaking down barriers and encouraging curiosity I hope to uncover the recovering addicts’ greatest potential.

Jenn ButlerJenn Butler – The Estranged Mom Coach

I teach moms of estranged young adults how to own their lives, feel better, and move forward.

Estrangement is devastating, not widely discussed, and leaves moms feeling helpless. My coaching process is supportive and empowering.

I teach clients how to manage their many painful thoughts and feelings. They learn how to cope with clarity, strength, love, and peace. They know they can handle whatever the future holds.

Because every estrangement is unique, I coach moms individually. The strategies I share have enabled me, and my clients, to grow through our pain as estranged mothers. 

All moms can learn how to design a healthy, fulfilling life on their terms, one that is not defined by estrangement.

Laura VanderputtenLaura Vanderputten – The Transition to Parenthood Coach

I inspire and help (expecting) parents to prioritize their emotional well being while transitioning into parenthood.

We have beautiful expectations of what having a baby is going to be like. However, most parents experience the reality of parenthood very differently. They think there is something wrong with them and this causes emotional discomfort.

Every mother, father, child and situation is different. That’s why I create space for each individual parenthood experience.

My coaching services are focused on creating awareness of the challenges new parents face. By recognizing the emotional impact these changes have on them and their surroundings, my clients will be able to adjust their expectations.

Together with the practical tools I offer, they ultimately feel more prepared to deal with the parenthood transition.

I help successful (on paper) professionals who are overwhelmed and unfulfilled by their high-stress lifestyle to achieve balance without sacrificing their success.

As an executive coach and attorney who practiced law for over 18 years, I understand how career and life demands can turn what you were once passionate about into a daily grind. 

I help my clients cultivate a mentally resilient, calm mind and get clarity around what they want (and don’t want) out of their career so that they can redefine success for themselves from the inside-out.

Then, we work together to create strong personal and professional boundaries for a simpler, less complicated life and success that’s sustainable, fulfilling, and fun.

Joan SwineheartJoan Swineheart – The Young Adults Who are Unemployed Coach

I help young adults who are unemployed or underemployed redefine their focus, utilize resources and gain the confidence to launch their careers in a meaningful direction. 

Nearly 44% of college graduates are underemployed and working in jobs that don’t require a degree.  I’ve met young people with certifications/degrees who aren’t working at all and have no idea how to begin the employment process. 

You may have given up and are living at home with parents while you watch friends navigate adulthood successfully.

Through increased self-reliance and reflection, I help you narrow down the careers and businesses that align with your values.  You learn what works and what doesn’t as you breakdown this process and move forward.

Decades of research has validated this form of hypnotherapy as a successful treatment that can greatly improve the quality of life for IBS sufferers. Success rates of 60-80% for a reduction in symptoms are common. Even better, the relief is long-lasting.

I work with newborns, babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, up till 4 years old. Having a baby who takes predictable, steady naps every day and sleeps 11-12 hours every night transforms the entire family.

Nicole GilbertsonNicole Gilbertson – The Neurodivergent Life Coach

I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety since childhood. I knew there was something different about me, but I didn’t know what it was and didn’t get the support I needed. It wasn’t until adulthood that I found out my brain just works differently than other people’s brains.

Now that I’ve embraced who I am and I’m living authentically without apology, it has become my mission to help neurodivergent people (like me) understand who they are so they can live authentic, happy, and healthy lives.

Dandelion Bright is how I’m working to make that happen. Through my work as a Neurodivergent Life Coach, I help eliminate neurotypical expectations for the lives of the neurodivergent so they can live authentically just as they are.

Whether you’re looking for education, advocacy, or support, Dandelion Bright can help you live bright from where you are.

    • Tim Brownson

      I have gone back and forth on this Catherine as I’m not really sure that stress management is a niche. Do you narrow down any further?

  1. Hi Tim,

    I’m a Pediatric Sleep Consultant, otherwise known as a Baby Sleep Coach. I help moms and dads meet their baby’s sleep needs- getting them onto a schedule, learning to sleep through the night and ensuring healthy daytime sleep as well. I work with infants from 4 weeks to 4 years.

  2. I’m just starting out and am working specifically with neurodivergent clients, which (for my purposes) includes those with neurological disorders (autism, ADHD, dyslexia, Tourette’s, etc.), mental illness (anxiety, depression, OCD, schizophrenia, etc.), and/or traumatic brain injury. My goal is to work with neurodivergent people to help them embrace who they are and how their brains work so they can live happy, healthy lives without trying to adapt and fit in with a neurotypical society.

    • Tim Brownson

      I like it Nicole. If you want to be included the instructions are at the bottom of the post. All I’d ask is that you leave TBI out as we already have a TBI coach.

  3. Hi Tim
    I provide IBS Hypnotherapy services to people suffering with IBS. This gut directed hypnotherapy helps sufferers reduce both the intensity and the frequency of the symptoms and improve the quality of their lives.
    cheers
    Tony

    • Tim Brownson

      Happy to add you with that Tony. I have updated the post with the instructions at the very bottom.

  4. Hi Tim!

    I work with women who have survived a domestic violence relationship, whether it be from a partner or a parent, and whether it be emotional, verbal or physical abuse. I wouldn’t love the chance to shed more light around what I do.

  5. Dear Tim, I love this post idea and it is so inspiring to read about all the different niches. I am from Austria and my website is in German. So it does not really make sense to apply here, right?
    All the best
    Su

  6. Hi Tim,

    I’m a mental health coach, specializing in recovery from OCD. The coaching involves breaking their fears down and empowering them to face their fears to gain control over them.

    In the process of revamping my website.

    • Tim Brownson

      Great niche Sunil and I’d love to feature you when your site is up and running. Just let me know.

  7. Hello Tim! I’m not sure if you are still accepting submissions, but here goes:

    I help women discover and define their personal core values; then help apply them to their life decisions.

    • Tim Brownson

      So sorry Monisha, this got thrown in my spam folder and I only just saw it.

      I am still taking new submissions – I’m just not sure that core values is necessarily a niche. As you may know, I wrote a book on the topic and to me, it’s really a tool that helps us be more effective as coaches rather than being a niche per se.

  8. Hi Tim!

    I love your sites and am soaking up all the information I can. I’m seriously considering moving toward a career as a life coach. I write a blog currently about setting and achieving goals across 5 distinct areas of life. How does one go about trying to narrow down into a niche for life coaching?

    • Tim Brownson

      Goal setting is probably a niche, so you could do that. Tricky to know without any more info. By and large, your niche should be the people you most enjoy working with.

  9. I am a Grief Coach. I help people experience their full potential for joy. Every time we experience a loss, we lose a piece of our heart. Feelings of grief are normal and natural. Unfortunately, most of us were not taught how to process sad, painful, or uncomfortable emotions in a healthy way. Consequently, we end up burying or suppressing our feelings.

    Over time these unprocessed emotions are wreaking havoc on our relationships, health, and robbing us of peace and joy. I teach a proven method to heal buried emotional grief.

    I share my story of growing up in an alcoholic home and the emotional challenges that ensued as a result. What do we do with intangible losses? Loss or normalcy, loss or safety, and loss of childhood are profound. I can help you heal and return to living from your heart.

    • Tim Brownson

      If you want me to include you, happy to do so Ronda. The guidelines are at the bottom of the post.

  10. Arwa

    I am a grief coach and i specialize in complicated grief – when we experience multiple tangible losses in a short period. These tangible losses also uncover a host of intangible loses. I help my clients make sense of all the emotions and help them put them in perspective so they can start to integrate these losses in their life and build a new normal.
