As its name suggests, this therapy is solution focused and goal-oriented, rather than problem focused as many other therapies are. It is based on utilizing concrete exercises and tasks such as creating deadlines, time management and skill assessments to achieve personal life goals. The coaching relationship creates an environment of structure, accountability and empowerment.
Coaching is designed to help clients move forward in areas where they are stuck because of lack of personal will or some inner resistance. Partnering with a coach can assist clients in finishing a project or completing one’s education, starting a business venture, manifesting or attracting a partner into their life, or pursuing a life dream.
