About Coach Carol Knox
Hi, its Carol Knox and I want to tell you why I am passionate about coaching work. Because I have been through many major changes in my own life, divorce, single motherhood, full-time work and study, loss of loved ones, aging and illness, I made a decision to move to the Cape three years ago. My focus is to bring my life experience in finding my own WHY and purpose to help you to find yours including what I have learnt in my PHD research.
I will guide you to unfold/find your meaning, as well as a personal calling, based on the thinking of Viktor Frankl, through tasks that you can fulfill or things that you can do, relationships that you can strengthen and enrich through loving connections and attitudes that you can develop and cultivate when you can't change things.
I have developed a programme to help you through based on the thought of Viktor Frankl, (part of my PHD research) and personal experience. I offer customised coaching as well as a structured 12-week programme, we will decide which is best together. This potentially life-changing process will take you step by step towards a more fulfilled life.
A lack of meaning might be called a malaise of our times. When we encounter challenges in life, often we discover somehow, that we cant find a centre, a way to cope. What is it all about? Studies measuring meaning and purpose in life, found that meaning in life mediated uncontrollable stress and substance abuse, depression, anxiety and self-derogation among others. This meaning or deepest human value, this WHY, points us to reach beyond ourselves, to enrich our lives, to unfold a deep fulfilment in our work and personal lives.
I have worked my whole life in education and training as well as in business soft skills training. I have practiced mindfulness for more than 15 years. I love working with people and my personal life meaning and purpose is to guide you to discover yours.
