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 is perfect for women and men who want to stop going in circles and start moving forward on their goals. They want to fulfill their promises to themselves to live a more fulfilling life. Coaching is for individuals who have identified a goal (write a book, improve job performance, get a promotion, gain self-confidence, be less stressed, become more organized, develop healthier habits, become happier in life, etc.

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.

Therapy with a coaching flavor can be absolutely transformative. Let's explore how you can go from "suck it up and deal" to "I love my life!"

Many adolescents, young adults, and adults I have worked with have been interested in goal-setting, and improving performance in either work, school, college, sports, music, art, writing, or another endeavor. Coaching helps to meet these needs in a very direct way.

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.

— Karilyn (Kay) Bela, Counselor in Lancaster, PA
