Understand the coaching process
3 steps to building support.
The idea of partnering with a dementia coach is new to many people.
I created this list to help you understand exactly what is and is not covered in coaching sessions.
Traditional counseling or therapy approaches tend to be oriented towards exploring patterns or situations which occurred in the past, and were (or still are) creating problems in your current life. Traditional counseling or therapy are often accompanied by a mental health diagnosis and treatment plan.
While personal coaching also requires intensive training in listening and counseling skills, it is instead focused on what is happening now in your life, and where you would like to be in the future. Coaching provides personalized goals and an accountable partnership to help facilitate that process and support you along the way.
