A coach works with his client’s own questioning about his life. He empowers him to use his actual strengths to find a way to change, consistent with the client’s core values and wants. A coach is not an expert: the client is the expert of his own life.
Therefore, one realizes that the span of possible themes is almost infinite. However, I prefer to point out the themes I am comfortable to cover with a client through life coaching, according to my personal experience. It seems just plain honesty to me.

Finally, it is often impossible to work one aspect without to look at some others, either to better understand how they relate to the aspect you are actually working on, either to make sure to preserve them as they are or to modify them to stay coherent with your new personal objectives.
Examples inside each general subject in green are specific coaching topics you may want to explore, and you possibly have others coming to your mind as you read. It is your life after all!
Affirm your personal identity. You are at a moment of your life where you do not recognize yourself anymore, or you feel that you are not really as people around you say you are. Take the time you need to discover yourself as you are now. Learn how to be more assertive. Discover what are your personal values and learn how to use them as a beacon through changes you deem necessary to be happy. Protect your “self” by establishing solid personal barriers. Clearly identify your talents. Learn to appreciate who you really are.
Discover your personal spirituality and your own purpose. As many around you, you are questing for meaning in your life and you would like to find it. Discover the nature of personal spirituality and life according to it. Design your personal mission.
