It is my belief that the person has all the answers he or she needs, only hidden or forgotten somewhere inside themselves. It is a matter of searching and throwing some light onto their inner resources, regain access to them and use them in building a new way towards their goals. Ultimately, it is about their life and therefore, they should be allowed to design the solutions that are best for them with the coach facilitating and supporting them on the way.
