In ancient Greece and Rome, virtue ethics was widely practiced in educational, communal, and therapeutic contexts with an aim towards shaping and improving the character of people within those contexts. This dissertation examines philosophical literature on eudaimonistic virtue ethics to serve as a theoretical foundation for a character-based coaching methodology. To that end, the contemporary practice of philosophical counseling is also assessed for practical therapeutic approaches that complement virtue ethical theory. This dissertation concludes with the description of a virtue ethical coaching methodology, informed by virtue ethics theory, philosophical counseling practice, and contemporary coaching methodologies.
