What is keeping you from reaching your goals?
Coaching sessions are specific to each individual and specific goals. It is standard for therapists to discuss the primary issues and concerns in your life during coaching sessions. It is common to schedule a series of weekly sessions, where each session lasts about fifty minutes. Coaching can be short-term, focusing on a specific issue, or can be longer-term, addressing more complex issues.
There may be times when you are asked to take certain actions outside of the sessions, such as assigned reading or keeping records to track certain behaviors. It is important to think about what has been discussed and put it into practice between sessions. For coaching or psychotherapy to be most effective you must be an active participant, both during and between the sessions.
Here are some things you can expect out of coaching and psychotherapy:
Compassion, respect, and understanding
Perspectives to highlight persistent patterns Recognize negative feelings
Strategies for creating positive change
Effective and empirically based techniques Practical guidance
A plan to reach specific goals and targets
