What Is a Self-Love Coach?
A self-love coach works with clients to help them develop healthy and positive relationships with themselves. More specifically, self-love coaching helps individuals cultivate deeper feelings of self-worth, acceptance, and appreciation. These outcomes are achieved through building confidence, setting healthy boundaries, dealing with difficult emotions, practicing mindfulness, and more.
The world can be overwhelming, and we often forget to prioritize our needs and desires. That’s where a self-love coach comes in: they guide you toward self-discovery, self-acceptance, and, ultimately, self-love.
In this type of coaching, your coach helps you build a personalized toolkit of techniques and strategies to achieve your specific self-love goals. It’s all about empowering you to live your best life and to love the person you are today—while also working to become an even better version of yourself for years to come.
The Rise of the Concept of “Self-Love”
In today’s society, it’s not uncommon to scroll through social media and see images of seemingly “perfect” lives. We’re bombarded with highlight reels of people’s accomplishments, travels, and physical appearances. It’s no surprise that this can lead to feelings of inadequacy, a lack of confidence, and the pressure to measure up. That’s where self-love comes in.
Self-love has become somewhat of a buzzword, as evidenced by a clear surge in Google search interest over the past 10 years. But what does it really mean? Self-love goes beyond how you treat yourself—it also encompasses your thoughts and feelings about yourself. So, while self-care practices like taking a bubble bath when you’re stressed or going for a walk when you’re overwhelmed are beneficial, they don’t embrace the entirety of what’s meant by self-love.
Self-love requires compassion. It means recognizing your own worth and taking the steps to care for yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally, regardless of outside influences. Often, this is much easier said than done, which is why many a)plan clients turn to our self-love coaches to support and guide them on their journeys to self-awareness, compassion, resilience, and, ultimately, love and acceptance.
What Does a Self-Love Coach Do?
Self-love requires a holistic approach to self-discovery. That’s why, at a)plan, our coaches are trained on our whole-person coaching method which considers all aspects of one’s being—habits, thoughts, desires, goals, relationships, and more—when working toward lasting change.
Our self-love coaches help clients silence their inner critics and replace negative self-talk with positive affirmations. They may also teach mindfulness techniques, help clients set boundaries, and create space to prioritize self-care.
Most importantly, a self-love coach helps clients accept themselves as they are while at the same time developing a plan to become who they want to be. This starts by identifying what they really want in life, what’s holding them back, and how self-love is the catalyst for achieving their big dreams and goals. At a)plan, our coaches help clients accomplish all this and more via weekly coaching sessions, unlimited chat support, and growth and gratitude exercises completed in our coaching app.

To fully understand the power of self-love, it’s helpful to understand the concept of neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to change and grow through the creation and rearrangement of new neural pathways.
