Coaching Secular Clients

Excerpted from Coaching for Transformation

Ideally, coaches address spirituality in our discovery sessions and know where our clients stand in regard to soul and spirit. Some clients may be eager for spiritual coaching. Others may be strongly opposed, be it from a religious standpoint, from an atheistic or agnostic standpoint, or simply from disinterest.

If a client seems uncomfortable with spiritual terminology, we can still do deep work using secular terminology. We can ask, “When do you feel more connected with something that is beyond yourself?” or, “What values do you hold that go beyond your own well-being.”

We can work with the client on meditation, body awareness, earth-based coaching and many of the suggested practices in this chapter. Also keep in mind the spiritual benefits that come with these activities:

Art—concerts, exhibitions

Community—family events, parties, ceremonies

Physical activities—swimming, playing, sex

Nature—sunsets, storms, deaths, births

There are many ways to bring spirituality into the daily life of clients who are looking for more. Below is a list of traditional spiritual practices, along with secular counterparts. We can work with clients to select practices that resonate with them and set up structure and accountability as we would any action steps. And keep in mind that spiritual practice may be more deeply personal or sensitive to our clients than some other action steps, such as exercising daily or sending job applications.
