So today I had a new client that was curious about coaching, but signed up. I explained what the process was and how it worked and she talked about her kids and what not and then her marriage and said she has been told it’s abusive and she doesn’t want to chat about her marriage because of that.

I responded with– I definitely think that is a subject above my pay grade and I would say of you are feeling abuse in any form you should reach out to a therapist or someone safe and close to you. And she asked if I can still coach her…I said yes, but definitely things like abuse are above my pay grade and she should definitely explore different options for.

Was that right? Should I even be coaching her about anything? What do you do when a client brings that to you?
