Unlike psychotherapy and counseling, coaching isn’t about extensively examining your past and particular traumas. It’s also different to mentoring because we don’t provide industry-specific advice. In fact, I believe you already have the answers inside you. I’m there to help you find them—and then act on it.
It’s also important to note that if you have a diagnosed psychiatric condition, I’m probably not the right person to tackle that head on, though I can certainly support you in other ways . That said, anxiety and depression are areas that you may find significant improvements in. This will be more as a consequence of building a meaningful, fulfilling and robust life that dealing with them directly.
All of that said, every “stuck” part of us is a consequence of some degree of trauma, whether it’s little or big. Being in the process of completing training in Gestalt Therapy, I can hold more space for this than a regular coach. There just may be a time where it’s more appropriate to pass you on to a psychotherapist for that part of the work. I have an extensive network of highly skilled professionals that I can recommend if this is where we arrive.
