Life Coaching

Introduction

You may have the sense that Life needs to be different in some way and are seeking a trusted professional who can confidentially encourage you to examine and re-focus your world.  You’d like to make positive changes in how you experience and enjoy specific areas of your life.

Life Coaching differs from Counselling in that rather than dwell on the past the client is ready to take steps forwards into the present and future.  This may entail reflecting on past experiences in the  context of “so what now?”

To get you started one useful way of doing so is to consider the Fulfilment wheel.  You can complete the sections in the attached file in terms of How Important the sections are or How Fulfilled You Are in each.  If you do both on the same sheet it may help to use 2 different colours of pen!

Are there any surprising gaps in what you discover?  Is there greater clarity on your priorities now?

The answers to these questions may give you clues to the possible focus for a series of Life Coaching sessions.
