WHAT IS COACHING?

Coaching is when a coach and client partner in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize their potential. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. The coach's responsibility is to:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve

  • Encourage client self-discovery

  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies

  • Hold the client responsible and accountable

 


IS COACHING THE SAME AS THERAPY?

 

No. Coaching and therapy are two different things. If therapists are surgeons, coaches are personal trainers.
 
Coaching helps functional people achieve their goals. It is not a substitute or replacement for therapy provided by a licensed clinician trained to treat mental, emotional, and psychological disorders. 
 
If there are many unhealed wounds that may affect the coaching relationship, Sarah will refer you to a therapist who specializes in working with that trauma.

Even if you come to Sarah to tackle something specific, she'll want to gain an understanding of your life as a whole, as she believes everything is related and patterns may emerge across different areas of your life. She'll challenge your thinking at times, so you can open your mind and dig deep into the thoughts, feelings and motives underlying the issue at hand. You'll not only gain clarity through this powerful process of inquiry, but also have insights and gain confidence on what your next step(s) may be.
