You’re ready to get some support but how do you decide who can help?
Sometimes this decision can seem overwhelming but we are here to help simplify the process.
One of the easiest ways to determine which service is right for you is to schedule an initial consultation appointment with one of our therapists or a Coffee & Clarity session with one of our coaches. During your session, you’ll get to talk through the specific issues that led you to wonder if one of our services could help. And before making a final decision, you get the benefit of some expert insight into what services or tools will help you best.
Our clients find that the most effective way to find what they need is to just call our office or schedule a therapy appointment or coaching session online, and let us help them make an informed decision.
But we do have some general tips on how to figure out what may be the best next step for you… read below.
Which approach fits you best?
Therapy is designed to help you explore and heal the emotional and psychological reasons that prevent you from achieving your goals, as well as provide tools to effectively deal with common challenges such as anxiety, sadness, and trauma.
It offers an in-depth, comprehensive look at every aspect of your life with a focus on improving your emotional well-being and helping you create healthy relationships and a healthy self-image. If you have more questions about therapy, we recommend just scheduling a session- there is no obligation to keep coming to therapy after the first session and the best way to know if it will work for you is to give it a try.
In contrast, our coaching & social events are solely focused on developing and implementing a strategic plan for successful change in a specific area of your life.
If we think of therapy as a “physical therapist” for your emotions- helping you heal injuries and pain- then coaching is like an elite personal trainer- helping you strengthen your emotional & social muscles and reaching specific goals.
One of the benefits of coaching is the added flexibility. Because it’s not bound by some of the same healthcare guidelines as therapy, these services can be offered in non-traditional settings like your office or the local coffee shop. We recommend starting with a Coffee & Clarity session- it’s the perfect way to get some expert insight on what service (or services) might be best for your situation.
Our social events & retreats are like going to an exercise class where you can share with others while refining basic skills. Answers to common questions about coaching, social events, and our retreats can be found on our sister site, ConversationsOffTheCouch.com
