WHAT IS A COACH?
Your coach is a professional mentor who works with you to help you reach your goals. You coach becomes an important second set of eyes and ears, that motivating voice whom you often wish you had to help you reach your goals.
Your coach will help you bring focus to your ideas, your decisions, your plans. In short, your coach is someone who will work with you to help you help yourself.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO IT ALONE!
WHAT COACHING IS NOT
Coaching is not psychotherapy. You will not focus on the underpinnings of your issues. You will not examine past experiences except in a very narrow perspective to provide detailed perspective, understanding and information about current goals or concerns.
If psychotherapy is view as a more appropriate option - your coach will make that recommendation - which you can choose to accept or reject. However, if you choose to reject the recommendation - your coach has the right/obligation to discontinue coaching services. If you choose to accept the recommendation - your choice of psychotherapist is up to you. You will simple need to provide your coach with your psychotherapist's name/contact information which will not be utilized without your permission. You and your therapist will then determine if coaching is a useful option for you to pursue at that time.
Your coach is able to provide you with a statement regarding consultation fees. Your coach is not able to provide you with documentation that would be useful for submission to your insurance unless your insurance covers consultation services.
WHEN TO CONSIDER COACHING
There is rarely a time in your life when the ability to brainstorm with a professional mentor would not be a welcome plus.
