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; someone who wants help with difficult conversations at work; someone who isn’t sure 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, travelling in circles, certain there must be something they can do about it, but not sure what it is. These are my perfect clients. Our work together will involve sifting over the situation, examining it from however many angles it takes until we find that way forward.
