Coaching

Coaching is the act of guiding a person to achieve a specific goal, either professional or personal. Although therapists and coaches have similar approaches, coaches are typically more direct and have more frequent contact with clients than therapists, and focus on the specific goal at hand, rather than seeking the root of an issue. If you have a specific goal you'd like a professional perspective on, coaching might be a good step. Contact one of TherapyDen’s coaching experts today!

Life Coaching is a great service for teens and young adults who are not in need of therapy but are interested in getting support in starting their lives as an adult. Life coaching is a solution focused, practical service that can include, but is not limited to, gaining clarity on career choices, learning skills such as personal organization, or addressing barriers to taking on adult responsibilities. Life coaching focuses on the here and now, and does not dive deeply in past stressors / traumas.

Not everyone comes to therapy just to be heard. Yes, that can do wonders for people and for some people it's what they need. For others they need someone to help coach them through their issues. I have extensive experience coaching people that may not need help with more severe issues, but just need a push.

Coaching focuses on helping clients stay motivated in pursuit of a specific future goal. Need to help my clients explore and navigate the tough waters of their sexuality, the relationships and their inner self. Encouragement and focus on one's strengths is paramount.

Life coaches are full of it. Why should you trust someone to coach you in life, when they couldn't even be bothered to be coached to a credential that mattered? And if you are gonna see a life coach, why not see a therapist that is also a life coach? People think they want a life coach, what they want is a therapist with a personality and I mean have you seen my profile? Have you seen the stuff I've said? No "How does that make you feel" here. Real solutions to Real problems in a fun format.

My ability and experiences to evoke and guide in order to bring forth purpose and passion to the forefront.

— Collene Taylor, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor in Rockford, IL
 

I believe that therapy shouldn't only focus on the past. As we heal and grow, we need to develop some new skills to move through the world in a different way, and I find that some supportive coaching on these skills is incredibly helpful for my clients. As I ask clients to try new coping techniques, communication skills, or boundaries, I check in to see how it's going and how I can help solidify these new behaviors. My kind but direct approach lends itself well to coaching.
