Do you wonder if you’re ready for coaching? Do you wonder if you still need a therpist? Here’s how to tell.

YOU’RE READY FOR COACHING WHEN:

  1. You want to get unstuck and set goals you can achieve.
  2. You are functioning, although you may still struggle with your grief.
  3. You want to stop bad habits and replace them with healthier ones.
  4. You are looking for tools to help you become a better person.
  5. You desire a life with purpose and meaning but don’t know where to begin.
  6. You feel confused about your next step, and would like some help.
  7. You are ready to look to your future, even if you’re not sure what it is.

YOU’RE NOT QUITE READY FOR COACHING WHEN:

  1. You experience mental health symptoms that cause you distress in your life.
  2. You want to heal from past hurts or trauma.
  3. You struggle with interpersonal relationships.
  4. You are experiencing significant relationship issues.
  5. You are not able to care for yourself because of your mental health issues.
  6. You have a diagnosis that is not being well managed by a licensed mental health provider.
  7. You are unwilling to make yourself a priority.
  8. You are not functioning well: unable to get out of bed, lacking self care, or are in a fog.
  9. You need to process your experience of your spouses death.
  10. You want to talk about the death, but not do anything about your current situation.

Coaching works BEST when you come in having dealt with your past trauma. You may still be struggling, but you are in a good mental space. You need that space so that we can begin building onto the vision of your future. When you wait for the right time, coaching can be a transformative experience.
