The coaching model is a very useful model for certain aspects of psychological counseling and therapy. Your coach’s job, as in a sport, is to help you bring out the best in you. A good coach uses modeling and other behavioral techniques to teach you what to do, and then to facilitate your practice of the techniques, giving you feedback along the way.
A good coach is encouraging and motivating. In many respects, personal coaching is a specialty field all by itself. If you’re going through difficult times, I can coach you to get through them successfully, intact, and with aplomb.
