I am an “Adult Child” Coach (certified by Judy Klipin) and work with so called ‘adult children’. What are ‘adult children’?
As Judy Klipin explains, many adults who had challenging childhoods find that their childhood fears impact on their lives as adults. If you behaved in a very responsible and reliable manner when you were a child and if, now that you are an adult, you often feel childlike and vulnerable in stressful situations, you are in all likelihood an adult child. Having a childhood that is unpredictable or inconsistent in any way often results in a range of characteristics and limiting beliefs which include a need to be perfect, an inability to trust others, and a horror of asking for help. It doesn’t really matter what was going on in your family, or why you felt like you needed to be a grown-up when you were a child. What matters is that you did.
Adult Child focused coaching will take you on a journey of self-discovery and provide you with powerful tools to will guide you through a process of healing. It will bring you relief from the confusion and anxiety that may have been your constant companions, and it will guide you to a place of understanding and acceptance of yourself.
The focus of this type of coaching will be to help you to change – not who you are, but how you are.
