Coaching and Counseling
Coaching is a form of development in which a person called a coach supports a learner or client in achieving a specific personal or professional goal by providing training, advice and guidance
What is counseling? Counseling is the professional guidance of an individual by using psychological methods, like collecting case history data, using various techniques of personal interview, and testing interests and aptitudes. It is for the resolving personal, social, or psychological problems and difficulties
Coaching is similar to counseling in the sense that it also assists in resolving situations in your life by collecting your personal history but only to show you where patterns are coming up and what is being brought up to you in your own life as a form of recognition. They are not seen as "problems" nor "difficulties"nor labels them as such.
I do coaching mainly because as each person has their own fingerprint and DNA specific to their own person, they also have their own reason for coming onto this earth. Counseling tells you what to do, the best way out of a situation or what is perceived as conflict. Coaching reaches down to help you discover the reasons why something has come up in your life, and why it is happening to you. People are creating unconsciously, unaware of why and for what purpose.
I help bring a deeper consideration to that unconscious creation and the meaning of its nature special to you. I awaken my clients to the understanding of the origins of those occurrences in their lives all the way to learning how to become conscious of what and why they are creating.
With each choice there comes an effect, a consequence of the choice made.
Take for example:
Cause: Confusion on a situation that just happened in my family:
Effect: My reaction to this moment
Desiring or attempting to escape situation I dislike by
Distancing yourself (i.e. checking your phone, zoning out)
Judging the moment (i.e. gossiping)
Anger, rage, or wanting to disappear
Physically distancing yourself
Seeing this moment as an opportunity given to me to see myself and how I can create consciously
Courage to stay connected by breathing from a loving place offering what I notice without being attached to people changing or not.
Seeing myself and others in this moment as people who are learning just like I am and are making a choice
Communicate from love without being attached to my family's response nor my own need to please others.
Realize I have a lot tools to help me. Non physical guidance. I am not alone in wisdom, vision nor strength
Each of these reactions have a consequence. Each of these decisions are a way in which we are creating consciously or unconsciously. The decision you have consciously or unconsciously made is now creating the new path you are in, thus creating more new moments for you.
Coaching will bring you an awareness on how you are co-creating. It also helps define you to your life's purpose.
