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!

As a coach, I help you identify best practices you want to integrate into your life and then help troubleshoot practical barriers to doing it. I integrate previous business experience with psychotherapy principles to help you make progress. Coaching can be goal related and include things like career counseling, help with networking strategies and execution, and other practical topics. Or coaching can be focused on mental health issues like better managing ADHD, OCD, or anxiety. Available online

Sometimes we need practical skills to help us get to the next level in our wellness. This may require some skill-building to develop new systems and habits with our business, nutrition, morning routine, time management, etc. This may be just what you need to heal and move forward. For instance, you may come with anxiety, but once we create a plan and establish boundaries, you feel centered and in control. This is the power of coaching.

Sometimes we need practical skills to help us get to the next level in our wellness. This may require some skill-building to develop new systems and habits with our career, nutrition, fitness, morning routine, time management, etc. For instance, you may come with anxiety, but once we create a plan and establish boundaries, you feel centered, in control, and well-rested. Coaching can play a huge role in being just what you need to heal and move forward-- especially in addition to CBT.

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.

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.

— SALLY RUMSEY, Licensed Professional Counselor in Hartland, VT
 

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.
