This chapter reviews studies on solution-focused life coaching. Solution-focused life coaching is an increasingly popular approach aimed at assisting individuals to make desired changes in their personal or work life or to enhance their overall level of happiness and well-being. Research is currently embryonic; however; the studies conducted so far are encouraging and suggest that this is a promising approach for mental health professionals to consider. It offers an evidence-based methodology for those practitioners already providing coaching services and also for those working within a traditional counseling model who may wish to expand their practices and offer life coaching as an additional service. Early research suggests that evidence-based life coaching may have the potential to be a useful change methodology.
