When does life coaching make sense?
When you not only want something to change, but you are willing to change it yourself.
And when it is an issue you can influence. Whether this is the case is something we can clarify during our preliminary session.
There are innumerable subjects for which life coaching makes sense. Fundamentally, however, there are three basic situations: a crisis, a challenge and a more comfortable situation.
Ultimately, the goal is always the same – a higher quality of life.
A basic situation of crisis might be
that you feel you are in a dead end,
that you don’t know how to help yourself,
that you end up overwhelmed, stressed, exhausted time and again,
that your thoughts are constantly running in circles,
that you feel small and discouraged, or doubt yourself.
A basic situation of challenge might be
needing to make a decision with far-reaching consequences,
needing clarity in order to take the next steps, or regain your balance,
facing a major change in life and wanting to be prepared,
needing to understand your own behavior or that of others in order to (re-)establish good contact.
A more comfortable situation to start from might be
that you are basically well, but have the feeling that there could be something more, that there is a considerable gap between your life and your true dreams.
It might be at work, when you notice that you are not passionate about your daily occupation,
in your private life, where your partnership, for example, might not be what you really want,
or in your innermost personal life, when you are trying to find a different inner attitude.
