The purpose of the coaching is to help an individual move forward and make changes in whatever ways they need assistance. Although coaching and other forms of therapy have much in common, they are sometimes differentiated by assertion that coaches work with healthy individuals to help them achieve their full potential and therapists (or counselors) work with clients suffering from mental illness or mental health problems. A client and a coach will generally set very specific goals that will focus on enhancing performance, improving relationships (personal or professional), or accomplishing a specific objective.
Local Experts in Coaching
I am currently transitioning to a coaching model of therapy in which I help clients identify specific life goals and focus on what they want in their lives as opposed to remaining stuck in problems. I have training in Solution-Focused Therapy and have studied Positive Psychology and coaching techniques to incorporate into my work with clients.
Life coaching shifts the stories we tell about ourselves and each other away from pathology, aka the something here is bad/wrong story line. I am a counselor with 17 years experience but have found that we are all most powerful when we tell our stories from 'what matters and what works' instead. I invite you to experience this radically yet subtly different frame of reference with me.
Coaching is not therapy or consulting, so the focus is not on “treating” or advising. We are companions on a journey that I am familiar with, and my role is to listen deeply, asking questions that help you look deep inside yourself to find your own answers and strengths.
Some of my clients need support in exploring their values, career directions, or simply making progress in a part of their life they feel stuck on. This work is not always therapy for a mental health disorder nor might it constitute a \'therapy relationship\' at all. If you want coaching help, we should discuss how coaching is different from therapy and figure out which type of help you need!
As a Professional Life Coach and Consultant, for over 20 years I have dedicated my life to the betterment of individuals, families, relationships and various companies. After graduating from SUNY Stonybrook with a Bachelors Degree in psychology I proceeded to Hofstra University to earn my Masters Degree in Psychology and systems theory. I have been featured on radio talk shows and have had the pl
With the current state of the world, sometimes results need to be immediate. We don't always have time to explore the roots of our challenges. Coaching can be a great way to tackle a problem at face value and get it taken care of and behind you.
I utilize Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for children ages 2-6 with behavior problems such as tantrums, defiance and aggression toward others. The 15-week course of therapy focuses on relationship enhancement as well as discipline strategies to improve behavior, and emphasizes concrete skill-building, live parent coaching and home practice.
Coaching is another way of describing problem solving. It is generally delivered by someone who has experienced the very thing they are assisting with. The coach has mastered both information and technique and can use the experience thus gained to help others do their best in the field of endeavor. Let me be a source of experience for you to draw on as you work to make your family uniquely yours!
Strengths-based, cognitive-behavior coaching for growth and development
Coaching techniques include clarifying your values and goals and the action steps that will bring these goals to life.
I am a Certified Life Coach with two years of training from the International LIfe Coaching Foundation. I am trained in Personal Growth, Business Development, Communication, and Goal Achievement. I have been providing individual, group and business coaching for 10 years.
Much of my therapeutic approach is derived from the life coaching perspective. We return to our common connections by loving, honoring and valuing ourselves and others. Wonder, curiosity and inquiry are the source of all learning. I believe awareness is the precursor to choice. Finally, contribution based on purpose generates true fulfillment and that connection is the wellspring of creativity
Coaching sessions are an opportunity to cultivate awareness beyond a known set of behaviors, so we can choose how to exist, and how to react. Coaching is designed to follow the individual goals of each client, to create frameworks for skill development, and to own and embrace the self-growth of persisting through challenges.
As a professional symphonic musician and international presenter on the intersections of music and interpersonal neurobiology, I have developed a unique style of coaching particularly useful in personal leadership development and team building. I have served as a consultant in this capacity in numerous industries, including healthcare, academia, the arts, and manufacturing.
Coaching allows one to bring about positive changes in their life more quickly and efficiently than they might on their own. Coaching makes use of collaborative goal formation, problem solving and accountability.
I provide parent coaching, rather than therapy.
Life changes - both positive and negative - can cause people undue stress, which often manifests itself in inertia or unwanted behavior. I work with clients to help them explore and own their strengths and areas for growth.
I have received training at the Coaches Training Institute in San Rafael, CA in the co-active coaching model.
