Beckton DLRI would describe my experience of life coaching as very positive. The coaching has helped me by showing me how to manage my time and set myself small goals to achieve the main goal.

I first came to my life-coach meeting not knowing what to expect and feeling very unconfident in myself, and quite unhappy about how my life was panning out. I came out of the first meeting feeling a lot more positive about what direction I wanted my life to go.

My coach was very understanding and made me feel better about myself when I beat myself up for sometimes feeling that I was getting nowhere.  Since that first meeting I have completed and passed a twelve week volunteer course. I have also done some work placements in Newhams Council Offices as an office worker and thoroughly enjoyed it, which has given me the confidence to get out and start looking for work.  I am also signing up for a computer course in the new year to brush up on my skills further.

The biggest thing I wanted from coaching was to feel better about myself and have more confidence.  I have achieved both.
