What is a Professional Humanistic Coach?
Humanistic Coaching is a specialization in the field of life coaching that integrates well established principles from humanistic, positive and cognitive science, psychology and counseling. A Professional Humanistic Coach is a trusted mentor who can help you identify and uncover what keeps you from reaching your fullest potential. Together we explore your own thought patterns and perceptions that get in the way of realizing your goals. Within this one-on-one relationship, which provides a supportive and non-judgmental space, most people readily envision and create circumstances that help you gain what you want for yourself. Life Coaches help you strategize and acquire the tools you need to achieve your goals. As a Humanistic Coach, I add on an additional layer of years of study and practice of positive psychology. You will quickly realize steps that help you identify and reframe your thoughts and attitudes. It can also help you break negative habits, acquire new methods of identification, and take action to achieve your maximum potential!
What types of people have Life Coaches?
People from all walks of life work with professional Coaches to help attain their goals. Life Coaches work with people in all areas of their life including relationships, career, finance, health and more. Working with a personal Coach is not limited to any type of person, but is best for those who want to take initiative in their own life. People who get a Life Coach are committed to a more fulfilled life and are willing to do the work needed to get there.
How will Humanistic Coaching help?
The results will vary depending on what brings you to a Coach. While many people come to me because they have special challenges dealing with a mentally ill loved one, cognitive coaching can help in all areas of your life that are effected by this relationship. When your life strains your personal relationships, humanistic coaching will help you improve those relationships, resolve ongoing negative behaviors, improve your overall health, and grow spiritually. When there are professional issues cognitive coaching can help you make your current job more gratifying, gain better focus on managing your work, and market your self more effectively. With humanistic coaching you can live a more balanced and enhanced life, and make your dreams come true!
What happens in a Coaching Session?
Each session is tailored to the client and will vary based on individual needs. In the beginning, we will discuss what you are committed to accomplishing through our work together and we will begin to create a plan to achieve your goals. Periodically, I will give you assignments to help direct your progress. We will work together to acknowledge obstacles, explore alternate perspectives and celebrate successes. With the conclusion of each session, we will revisit your goals and evaluate the next steps that are needed to achieve these results. Here is a cute video that illustrates the coaching process.
Do I really need a personal Coach? Can’t I just do it by myself?
Life coaching can take you above and beyond your own personal limitations. More often than not, people try to achieve their greatest potential, but don’t even realize what stands in their way. A personal Coach can offer an unbiased and objective perspective, and can help you realize your patterns and habits. Most people experience that they are more efficient when working with a Professional Life Coach and that this provides the opportunity for them to better realize their potential. Life coaching can make your dreams attainable and will give you support and encouragement along the way.
How is Coaching different from Therapy?
While the coaching I provide can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to address psychological issues. While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help you identify your goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills. There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating what you want now and in the future. Even though I am an experienced psychotherapist, I would only move a client from coaching to therapy under very special circumstances. In almost all situations when a client needs therapy I would refer them out.
What is your cancellation policy?
I require a 24 hour notice to cancel all sessions. Please be sure to contact me if you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment in order to avoid being charged for the session.
How long do people generally work with a Life Coach?
To experience the effectiveness of any life coaching program, I suggest clients make an initial three-month commitment. At the end of the three months, we will evaluate progress and discuss options for continued coaching.
Is personal life coaching confidential?
What we discuss will be held in confidence and not shared with others. Generally, coaching discussions are not privileged for legal purposes. The privilege of confidentiality that exists for the clergy, therapists and attorneys is not granted to coaching professionals. However, because I am a licensed psychotherapist practicing coaching I can claim the legal privilege and it would be up to a lawyer to challenge that claim. So although all life coaching is a confidential process, I would strive to provide you with all the legal and ethical privacy of a licensed professional.Using a n SEO plugin wordpress? Why?
