Abstract

Some people can get very close to others; others find it very hard to do so. If you belong to the latter group, it’s likely that getting too close will cause feelings of discomfort. However, it’s important to realize that questions about closeness are at the heart of the human condition. Awareness of this is crucial in your work as a coach. You need to be attuned to how the people you coach handle attachment issues and how dependent they are on others for emotional satisfaction.
