I am finding someone I’m coaching energy′s exhausting. I know I should be able to remain centred but I have one client I just don’t enjoy coaching. Should I pass them onto someone else?

I am struggling to find a direction for my coaching. I guess you could say I can’t find my coaching niche.

16 November 2018    Anthony Eldridge-Rogers

This is an important one. Are you too interested in too many things? That’s often my issue! Or are you unclear on what your specific purpose and mission is in your life? That’s often the root cause of the lack of a clear niche. Read More

I′m not sure if my coaching is actually working. My client seems to like coming to me but I am not sure what we are really doing.
