Coaching is not therapy, although it is too an insight-based learning.
It is a methodology with roots in many theories and philosophies. It combines concepts from fields of psychology, philosophy, spirituality, business, and sports.
With all that extensive root system, coaching is distinctly different in its support role from that of a psychotherapy, consultation, or training.
The ultimate goal of coaching is to move forward with whatever it is that’s on the client’s agenda. Through mindful inquiry, the clients learn to observe themselves and discover how the stories they tell themselves might impact their lives, sometimes limiting their ability to grow.
Within the coaching – thinking 😊 – partnership, the clients figure out patterns of their behavior that might have been ineffective or even self-sabotaging and establish new ones aligned with their values and goals.
Coaching is a fairly straightforward process. It is mostly about discovery, gaining awareness, and choices we’re able to make when we put aside our limiting beliefs. When we allow ourselves to be challenged in coaching, new perspectives become available.
