I am a life coach, with a particular interest in … well … what?
I am trying to think what characterises my clients – someone whose partner left suddenly and is struggling with the shock and the children; someone who wants help with some difficult conversations at work; someone who can’t work out if he has too few or too many career options; someone who wants to find a way to balance four jobs; someone who loves her boyfriend but also finds him impossible; someone who wants to know how to talk to her son about moving out without hurting his feelings; someone who wants to aim high but fear of failure keeps getting in the way. People, in other words, with queries, quandaries and problems that are taking up too much of their brain space and that they want to get sorted.
Many people, myself included, find themselves caught up in this place where they know they aren’t functioning as they’d like, feel there might be something awry, but aren’t sure of the exact question, and therefore can’t even begin to look for an answer. These are my perfect clients. Our work, together, is to sift over the situation, hold it to the light from a number of angles and find some workable answers.
