Whether your life is in crisis, or you want to improve a good thing,

professional life coaching help is right here.

Many unscrupulous individuals go around slapping the title of ‘life coach’ to their names. They will attempt to dazzle you with wondrous ‘secret knowledge’ and ‘sure-fire approaches’ that will give you the ‘best life that you can get.’

These ‘gurus’ are not hard to find. A lot of people like to fancy themselves as wise, old sages who know the secrets to a happy life. However, finding a professional coach who can truly help you set your goals, reach them, and genuinely improve your life is a totally different matter altogether

I am Dr. Anthony Centore, Founder and Life Coach for Thrive Brooklyn Counseling and Life Coaching, I would like to tell you right now, personally or through the phone, that even if you may feel you’re hopelessly lost, even if you’re in the deepest pits of despair, even if you feel that you deserve no forgiveness or mercy, you can have a better, more fulfilling life. Even if you don’t have any crisis in your hands and you just feel that you’re going nowhere, we are here to help you learn how to realistically and optimistically set your goals, strive hard for them, and then to live the life that you want.

"Man always dies before he is fully born." This is a quote from one of the eminent heads of psychotherapy, and it simply means one thing:

No man can reach his maximum potential, for there is always room for improvement.

The Dirty Little Secret about Life Coaching

You may have heard people say that psychotherapy brings you out of pain and into healing, while life coaching brings you from neutrality to success. This point of view puts everything about your life into just one continuum: from a rating of -5 (for pain and suffering) to 0 (healing and neutrality) to a 10 (life success and greatness.)

But take this into consideration: what if you’re doing great in your job, while your family suffers? You may be the top CEO of the place you’re working for, but your family is a total wreck and you’re about to experience your fifth divorce in five years. Could you still put yourself into a rating of 10 points in your ‘life rating’?

This point of view simply doesn’t work. We can have a perfect score of 10 in one aspect of our lives, like at work, but have a score of -10 in another, like family.

A big challenge in life is to strike a balance between all aspects of our life – to improve our career without harming our marriage or social relationships.

And yet another false point of view is that clients of successful life coaching are not suffering or in pain. Suffering is a part of life, whether we like it or not. We cannot escape it, no matter what we do, and we have to learn to live our lives to the fullest while bearing our suffering with pride and dignity.

A more complete diagram of life experience. The inner ring for each section is "1", the outermost ring is "10." Where are you in each of these areas?

You may be seeking life coaching for a variety of reasons. Pain and suffering may not rank high for you, but they are inescapable facts of life. You may find yourself unaware that you’re struggling with one or more of these common life problems:


Depression literally sucks the life out of you, those around you, and those who care about you. And depression isn’t just an isolated problem: one in five people, or 20% of our population, experience depression every single year.

Some symptoms of depression can include: sadness, loss of interest in enjoyable activities, weight loss or weight gain, change of appetite, insomnia or excessive sleep, slowed physical movements, agitation, decreased energy or fatigue, feelings of worthlessness, excessive guilt, indecisiveness, an inability to concentrate, and more.

The demands of the busy lifestyles demanded by living in Brooklyn, as well as the sweltering summers and long winters, all serve to aggravate the cheerless effects of depression.

Stress and Burnout

With the demands that today’s society puts on us, the increasing problem of stress and burnout is steadily eating away at people’s ability to enjoy life. This “Busy Epidemic” is a grim warning that rest and recovery is a vital part of our lives, and cannot be ignored for long.

When we push ourselves too hard for too long the result is always some degree of burnout, and the signs of a person who experiences such burnout include:

  • Cynicism
  • Desire to ‘escape’
  • False belief that one is a failure
  • Feeling
  • Hypercritical of others
  • Inappropriate displays of anger, depression and frustration
  • Constant physical illness
  • Substance (i.e. drug and alcohol) abuse

Sometimes, we don’t even notice that we’re already building up enough stress to lead to burnout. These are some signs that are caused by increasingly destructive amounts of stress:

  • Unable to relax
  • Feeling tense or ‘on edge’
  • Constantly expecting trouble
  • Uneasiness or anxiety
  • Increased heartbeat
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Dry mouth
  • Jumpiness or feeling faint
  • Excessive perspiration and clammy feeling

Self-image, Self-esteem, or Self-worth

Self-esteem refers to the way you view yourself and how much you value yourself. High self-esteem allows you to tackle life’s problems and personal criticisms with greater resiliency and fortitude. Just keep in mind that a high self-esteem doesn’t necessarily mean being brash, arrogant and displaying an overblown ego. That’s a totally different problem.

However, it’s low self-esteem that presents the most problems:

  • Hating oneself
  • Feelings of incompetence
  • Feelings of unworthiness
  • Refusing to trust others
  • Distancing the self from others
  • Believing that one doesn’t deserve love and support
  • Believing that one isn’t special and unique

Other people may pitch in and try to convince you that you’re useless, incompetent and better off dead than alive, and are often the cause of why poor self esteem is developed. Constant and prolonged negative feedback causes deep and painful emotional wounds, and definitely has a negative effect on self esteem.

Relationship Problems (and Loneliness)

Despite all the advances in communication technology, with cell-phones and the Internet at our fingertips, people are more alone than ever before.

Even in a large city such as Brooklyn, people still feel completely alone: half of all marriages end up in divorce, while the marriages and relationships that do last are marred by abuse, anger, infidelity, jealousy, pain, uncertainty and other destructive problems that cause serious relationship problems between people.

Long work hours, the busy bustle and hustle of life, and the need to constantly be on the move leaves little to help with this problem, denying us the time and attention needed to help us to treasure and understand those who matter to us.

Do these problems ring a bell? Can you connect with one or more of these problems?

Even when we live in the most affluent times in the history of mankind, even with all the power of technology is at our fingertips, the fact remains that the fundamental problem of pain and hurt is still there to plague us as a people. And many people keep these problems to themselves, suffering in silence; for fear that they will be ridiculed, belittled and pushed away because of their problems. Addiction, sexual issues, anger issues and eating disorders are just some of these problems that people don’t want other people to know.

And the longer a person tries to keep these problems inside them, the more pain and suffering they will bring to him or her.
