Therapeutic coaching - a hybrid of therapy and coaching - is solutions-focused, helping you find answers that are right in front of you, while providing the benefits of traditional therapy. A therapeutic coach can help with a wide range of issues, such as stress, anxiety, burnout, physical health issues, and low self-esteem, just to name a few.
Therapeutic coaching integrates key principles of NLP, hypnotherapy, developmental psychology, life coaching, EFT, and mindfulness, to help you live a healthier, happier, and more relaxed life. In each session, the therapeutic coach takes into conservation your individual needs as a client and aims to "meet you where you are". Therefore, each session may look completely different. Just as each person and the situations experienced will be unique, however, there are common ways of working that are helpful. The combination of techniques allows us to explore problems holistically, on the level of both body and mind.
Therapeutic coaching provides a safe, non-judgmental space in which you will gain greater awareness about the issues you are experiencing and identify the root causes. It offers you clarity about where you are now, where you would like to be and what is getting in the way. While providing you with effective tools to work gently through these obstacles (which are often unconscious), so you can move towards the change you want to experience.
It might be helpful to imagine a tree, where the leaves of the tree are a manifestation of the physical symptoms, thoughts, feelings and behaviors we are experiencing. The branches are the situations and events giving rise to these. The trunk of the tree contains our beliefs (like the rings running through it) and the roots of the tree are the original experiences that caused us to form these beliefs. Working with a therapeutic coach can help by working with all of these different aspects and in a way that looks to understand the entire system of the tree (i.e., you).
Clients of therapeutic coaching often either feel their emotions very deeply or they have become fairly cut off from their emotions. Either way, we will help you learn the benefit of emotions, become more aware of your emotions, and develop tools and strategies to better handle your emotions moving forward. The aim in both cases is to restore a sense of balance in your life.
Sessions with a therapeutic coach will enable you to connect with yourself more fully and will empower you with solutions to help you feel better. This solution-focused approach supports your emotional wellbeing, helps to relieve stress and anxiety, increases your confidence and self-esteem, and allows you to experience positive change.
