Have you ever wondered about wanting to make changes to your life, yet there wasn’t the need for mental health counseling? Have you ever needed support to make truly positive changes in your life yet just wasn’t certain how to go about it? How about wellness and positive changes in life to create the balanced, less stressed, more engaging, and happy existence that you have so wanted to make? Or to the professional who isn’t certain how to make changes in the work place they own or where they work?
Often Coaching services can provide just what is needed for exploring what may be needed using your personal strengths, knowledge, and experience that hasn’t been tapped into for determining what positively can occur. As a former Professional Business Manager and Director, I gained valuable experience through mentoring, coaching, and consulting to obtain insight into what skills I already possessed to make the necessary changes not only in myself, yet to provide positiveness in the areas where I worked.
Professionally, I have provided, through coaching while working with a client, a path to wellness they chose. The individuals were somewhat stuck in their life, uncertain of just how to make the necessary changes or where to look for the necessary tools needed for the change they needed or wanted to make. Through determining short and long term goals, checking out resources, having accountability not only to their coach, yet to others, and having a plan, my clients truly made wonderful strides in their wellness path, the relationships with spouses, co-workers, teens, or others changed, and a sense of balance and direction became evident. As a Patient Educator working in Medical Practices and being associated with various clinics, coaching in various areas was beneficial for the client.
Beginning March 1, 2012, Life, Personal, and Professional Coaching services will be available in the practice. Sessions are being scheduled now with me for work beginning in the next couple of weeks. I will be able to work with you in various areas toward reaching the goals and plans you so desire, your plans and desires. Sessions are contracted for periods of three months, six months, nine months or one year depending upon the needs of my client. Sessions are available by phone, in person, or via Skype with mid session check-ins should that be needed. Life and Personal Development Groups will be started in April, 2012 so check back to dates and times for one sessions seminars or multi-week groups involving coaching processes.
Coaching is not the same as mental health counseling. The differences are coaching is not related to a mental health disorder, counseling is a process of working with a mental health disorder that has been diagnosed. Coaching is a process where the client guides the process-their process whereas counseling is guided by the therapist and evidence based practices. Coaching sessions are set with the length of time determined upon by the client and their personal needs yet counseling sessions are determined by the insurance carrier, the EAP service provider, and the evidence based time frame set forth as guidances for wellness and change.
So, what changes are you wanting to make this year, when those resolutions for 2012 just haven’t kicked in just yet? What is holding you back? What has you “stuck” and unable to move forward? Do you need assistance in developing goals, learning to make positive plans, and gain insight to the strengths and potential that you, and you alone, possess? Do you need a wellness plan for reducing stress, managing your time, or to improve relationships?
