My perspective, as a person trained in several disciplines of therapy and coaching, is as follows: I believe that my role in working with people is that of a "guide" for a person to find and be able to walk their own path. My vision and experience with this belief is comparable to someone who hires a guide to help them do something that they have never done before (but always felt an attraction to) or tried to do and felt that they could not do it on their own. The guide must have had personal experience on this kind of path to be a guide. Ultimately, the goal for the guide is to reconnect the person to her or his own inner guide. The types of therapy/coaching I have trained in include: Self-Relations Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Reconnecting with Nature Coaching (Applied Ecopsychology), Generative Trance (Steve Gilligan), Buddhism, Insight Dialog Therapy, and solution focused therapy. I received a Masters of Social Work in 2006 and have worked in the field of therapy and/or coaching since then. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families. I have worked with a full range of symptoms (depression, anxiety, and so on).
As you look at a painting, you see the image first and your attention is focused on the image. The background goes mostly unnoticed. What would happen if you were looking at the Mona Lisa and someone had switched the background to neon pink? It would change the image and the picture overall, right? You would certainly notice that it was different. The same could be said about the way people perceive themselves. We see a picture of ourselves as unchanging and mostly don’t understand or even notice the background. An outside perspective that is trained to focus on the whole picture can access all the beauty and talent that make up the whole picture. That’s what a coach can help with.
