Counseling and Coaching Services
People come to counseling or coaching because they can’t experience the joy of being who they are. They feel stuck in some repeating pattern, or cannot make progress in meaningful ways. They feel overwhelmed, feel unsure where to turn, or just can't seem to bring themselves to do the things that would really help.
This awareness of where you are and where you want to be is often the entry point on the Path for Change.
Awareness Creates Changes
This initial awareness that something needs to change often shows up as some sort of crisis that grabs your full attention. Something shakes you up, like a job or relationship issue, and you feel it manifest as depression, anxiety, stress or insecurity. You realize that you must begin embrace the beginnings of change if you want to see improvement in the situation and in yourself.
The Path4Change is designed to help you capitalize on this moment, by taking a step by step approach to making some positive changes in your life. This often involves realizing that your current behaviors are self limiting, and current beliefs may be holding you back. By learning how to improve your motivation, identifying potential roadblocks and exploring practical steps you can take, you can begin to take immediate, goal-oriented steps in the right direction.
As the counseling or coaching progresses, the goal often shifts from getting rid of something, to a more positive one such as improving your health, creating better relationships, having more satisfying creative work, and furthering your own flow and natural path.
The Process of Change
Path4Change employs a 4-Step Model of Change that guides the client through areas of Awareness and Motivation, to Exploration and Action. Using a combination of Evidence Based Practices specific to each of the four aspects of change, clients learn to take specific steps towards their goals to have more fulfilling lives. Each session examines the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are self limiting and collaboratively identifies the new choices and behaviors that will move clients forward to more authentic and genuine happiness. The primary focus is on developing positive change and developing daily practices that transform the way you live.
