How to help a client set direction?
by Rosemary Clark
I have just started my course and have recently completed my first Session 1 practice coaching. My "client" was unable to identify a precise direction for herself. She had lots of ideas as to how she wanted to spend her time and what she enjoyed doing but no definite idea of the right direction. I worked with what she did know but was a little unsure how to proceed because she didn't seem ready to name something specific and was more in an exploratory stage.
Does anyone have suggestions for how best to handle such a client? I would appreciate advice as I'm sure there are many future clients that I will meet with this issue.
