Life coaching acts as an adjunct to therapeutic service in supporting the client in various ways. It takes a hands-on approach to clarifying goals, identifying obstacles and exploring different strategies that would assist in day-to-day living.
The responsibilities of a life coach are to:
- Assist during challenging times by teaching basic life skills and self-care techniques to help individuals function at their best
- Encourage continued and sustainable progress.
Coaching sessions can take place in person and/or virtually for the duration of the treatment. All contact made is on an as needed basis. The first session consists of 60-minute strategy sessions, where we discuss creating a regular structure for change. Throughout your coaching program, the coach is available between sessions via email/text/call to review activities planned for the day and share the accomplishments or pitfalls. These daily updates help steer the weekly strategy sessions and give an indication as to what needs to be explored further.
