What is coachable? Common topics and occasions for Life Coaching.

Maybe you are wondering if Coaching is something for you and when would be a good time to have a Coaching session?

This article will clarify for whom and in which situations Coaching can be helpful. 

Coaching is for everybody. For young and old. For people of all backgrounds. No matter in which phase of your life you currently are. 

Coaching covers each area of life. That can be your health, your family, your friends, your relationship, your hobbies, your job, your purpose, or any other life-related topic. 

Your Coaching topic can also be about several areas, your whole lifestyle, more freedom or a higher quality of life in general. No matter if it’s an urgent issue or a long-term topic. 

Even if you don’t know exactly what your topic is, but you’re just dissatisfied, coaching can help you make your topic tangible and find out what it’s about and what you can do to achieve more satisfaction.

Another reason for a Coaching can be that you wish to address a personal or confidential topic and you are looking for a neutral, external conversation partner who listens to you and supports you in finding a solution.

In my work I encounter a wide variety of personal or professional development topics. But there is one thing that all Coaching sessions have in common: they always have to do with change. It’s either about a wish for change that you’d like to drive forward or it’s about coping with a given or new situation. 

To give you an idea about possible Coaching topics, here comes a selection of topics around Life Coaching:
