Worldwide, millions of people consult with life coaches for a variety of reasons. In some instances, even the client isn’t sure as to what it is they want to achieve. It may be that they’re unhappy with their progress at work, or simply feel dissatifed with their personal life. Perhaps their goals are proving difficult or impossible to achieve, or they’re yet to establish any real objectives to work towards.
