Do you desire to improve how you work with clients, to develop your skills and your competency? It is important to have a safe space to explore and reflect on what you bring as you sit with your client. Regular reflection on what you bring to the therapeutic relationship, that is your own assumptions, values, and bias’s, including addressing any transference and countertransference issues that may present in your work is a must for your development and importantly your clients.
Work and Life Coaching
On the other hand, you may choose strictly to want to work on achieving a particular work or life goal(s) but require a helping hand to identify what you really want and how to go about achieving this. Work/Life coaching also means you have someone there to encourage you along, to help you keep the focus, to avoid side tracking, to identify road blocks, and ultimately reach that goal(s).
