This morning Miriam is taking time to write down a new method of working. “I like to put things down on paper for my clients. For example, I have previously written a practical workbook ‘Happiness from a positive perspective’, which included many tips and assignments to help clients work on their happiness. According to feedback from clients, I find that they really appreciate a workbook like this.”
In the afternoon, Miriam sees a client for their final coaching session; in one-to-one coaching, an average course contains six sessions. “Clients are always amazed they can make such concrete changes in a short period of time. At the end of the process, many people are afraid of falling back into old habits or thinking patterns. I then discuss how they can develop a check-list for themselves which contains the first signs that things are beginning to take a turn for the worse. This also includes steps they can take to positively influence their wellbeing. Many clients choose to schedule another session periodically. I always remind people that they go to the dentist twice a year for a check-up, so why not apply the same principle?
