We all, to one extent or another, are prisoners of our own thought patterns, habits, and ways of seeing the world. It can be hard to address our problems, or areas of stuckness, within the confines of a perspective that cannot see outside of itself.
Coaching provides an outside perspective, as well as a safe and supportive space for grappling with areas of internal struggle as well as envisioning possibilities for growthful, satisfying, life-expanding pursuits. If approached from a place of earnestness, honesty, openness, and a willingness to entertain new ideas and experiment with new actions, it can be a tipping point into greater clarity and a greater sense of living purposefully.
What Coaching Is Not
Coaching is not therapy. I am not a trained or licensed mental health professional. If you are feeling depressed, are having suicidal thoughts, or are otherwise struggling with a serious mental health issue, I urge you to contact someone who is a licensed mental health professional ASAP.
