In an ideal world we all love our family, right? In fact, if a lot of us had our way family life would be like those lovely, idealistic, old fashioned American family soaps like the Waltons. (Good night John boy, good night Mary Ellen) – so homely, loving, safe, secure, supportive…

Unfortunately, real life can be a tad different. There can be lots of stress and strife in family life and the truth is that there can be serious differences between children and parents, parents and parents and children and children. Let’s not even mention ‘in laws’ – and with modern living there can be all sorts of ‘fun’ with step parents, step children and blended families of all types.

Many people just accept that that is the way it is and get on with life – but if you are feeling stressed about it, you’ve come to the right place. LifeBoss Coaching can help.

In coaching we look at you and how you are handling the situation. Unfortunately we can’t make other people change – but the good news is, we don’t have to. If you are willing to look at you and what you can do, very often the other party’s reaction will change too – and even if it doesn’t we can work on it so that you are not upset and so that you can enjoy your life to the utmost regardless of what anyone else is saying or doing.

LifeBoss Coaching will help you to understand the dynamics of the situation, figure out what’s going on and figure out what is the best thing for you to do. As with all coaching, family coaching concentrates on what you can do in your particular circumstances – and what you are willing to do. Coaches know that ‘one size’ does not fit all and so, as your Coach, I can help you tailor your plan to your exact needs.

And I am also here to listen, as sometimes people just need to hear themselves speak to know what is right for them. Whatever support you need within the realms of coaching, LifeBoss can provide. One caveat though – coaching is not ‘marriage guidance counselling’ and so you need to be aware of that.

However what coaching is, is effective, practical and worthwhile. Why not give it a try – I am always happy to help.
