My name is Clare and I am one of the Life Coaches here at Trafford CIL. Life coaching is all about helping someone to turn their DESIRE into a GOAL, identify OBSTACLES in their life and RESOURCES that will help them get to their goal, and making an ACTION PLAN to achieve it. A DESIRE is something you want and hope will happen to you, but a GOAL is more definite: it is something you plan and make effort to achieve for yourself.
