While Counseling takes a reactive approach to life’s issues, Coaching is a proactive means for mentally healthy people to face life’s challenges. Rather than staying in the past, Coaching provides individuals with tools to move forward.
Christopher McCluskey describes coaching as a facilitated monologue, and I don’t think I can explain it better. I view you, the client, as the expert on you. I will use powerful questions to help you find what you are looking for or achieve what you are striving toward. Admittedly, this isn’t easy. It requires deep thought and commitment to communication.
Talk to me. I love to listen.
There is structure, however, to your monologue, and that is what I facilitate. While I may not be an expert on you as an individual, I am an expert on certain processes that will help you understand yourself better and get you where you want to be.
The process of coaching can be accomplished through several avenues. Although I’m based in Tennessee, technology allows me to be available to you wherever you are in the world. Depending upon your schedule, location, or just personal preference, we can arrange sessions through phone, video conference, or face to face. You tell me what you prefer, and I’ll set it up.
Coaching is ideal for individuals who want to become more self-aware, allowing them to overcome obstacles in an effort to move from point A to point B. If I sense that a client requires more advanced clinical care, I will refer you to the appropriate professional. I care about you, and will not continue a coaching relationship if I do not believe it is in your best interest.
Coaching excites me, it challenges me, and it motivates me. I want it to do the very same for you.
