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!

Coaching has been a part of my treatment intervention since 2014 after completing a 2 year formal program. As a result o this program, I learned how to incorporate strategies that increase a sense of satisfaction and well-being into the therapeutic process. Coaching is an essential part of each session and is designed to help draw out your purpose and meaning.

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.

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 or job 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.

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.

— Anne Brady, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Columbus, OH

Part of the issue with therapy, and our society as a whole is the way we see our world and selves. We expect to not feel a certain way, push a feeling away and then expect a drink, a funny movie or food to help us feel better. We also assume therapy should be the only place where we talk about this (even though we know talking over and over again doesn’t help). Coaching is an invitation to expanding preconceived boundaries about yourself and the world because you want to get results.

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.

— Rachel Goldberg, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in San Diego, CA

As a result of my advanced training as a life and business coach, I can my clients gain clarity in their purpose and vision, guide them through the decision making process, support them in removing blocks to progress in goals throughout all areas of their life, and assist them in overcoming imposter syndrome and other limiting beliefs. This will help them to set healthy boundaries, avoid or recover from burnout, improve their relationships, and achieve true work-life harmony.

Life Coaching can be extremely helpful to individuals that may be dealing with specific stressors in their personal life or workplace. The goal of coaching would be to identify the primary sources of stress and use appropriate therapy modalities to reduce the stressors.
