Coaching + Consultation
So what exactly is coaching?
Although both coaching and psychotherapy use knowledge of human behavior, motivation, behavioral change, and interactive communication techniques, there are major differences in the goals, focus, and level of professional responsibility. Although coaching uses certain techniques that are also used in therapeutic settings (such as teaching cognitive skills, reflecting, affirming, and mindfulness training), coaching is not the same as therapy. In some situations, it may be recommend that you enter psychotherapy (with another psychotherapist or counselor) as a condition of continuing coaching.
The focus of coaching is development and implementation of strategies to reach client-identified goals of enhanced performance and personal satisfaction. Coaching may address specific personal projects, life balance, job performance and satisfaction, or general conditions in the client’s life, health, relationships, business, or profession. Coaching utilizes personal strategic planning, values clarification, brainstorming, motivational techniques, and other helping techniques.
With coaching, the client sets the agenda and the success of the enterprise depends on the client’s willingness to take risks and try new approaches. The relationship is designed to be more direct and challenging. You can count on me to be honest and straightforward, asking powerful questions and using challenging techniques to move you forward. You are expected to evaluate progress and when coaching is not working as you wish, you should immediately inform me so together we can both take steps to correct the problem.
Sometimes a Little Coaching is All It Takes
Are you ready to make significant changes in your life?
Consultation or coaching for people who don’t want or need traditional therapy. This type of work is for those who feel generally happy and well-adjusted but are seeking help with a very specific challenge or situation.
We will work together to define the situation, set specific goals and develop an actionable plan to reach those goals within a set timeframe. Coaching + Consultation is more active than traditional therapy and requires a firm commitment on your part to doing the work. Additionally, it differs from the deeper emotional work we do in therapy, therefore, we don’t treat issues such as anxiety and depression in this capacity.
The dimension, form, and development of your life is in your hands, and the only project in your life that truly matters is to realize your truest potential and your deepest callings. THAT is your mission, your purpose, and your ultimate path to freedom.
Coaching + Consultation services are perfect for people who may not want to make the commitment to counseling, but would like some insight on a specific issue/topic. Consultation may be offered only once, or in some instances, we provide on-going consultation to individuals.
