Dr Cate’s MHE&W also provides coaching
Many people can benefit from coaching, including health professionals or those involved in business, organisations or the community. The aims of coaching range from helping the person to find their direction or purpose in life, to achieving particular goals. It often involves ways to improve mental health and wellbeing, and may be about having a sense of ‘living your best life’.
Coaching involves a number of one-hour sessions. It tends to feel like a good conversation with someone who is listening carefully and interested in assisting you. The conversation focuses on gaining some understanding about you and your life or work, as well as your values and needs.
There may be some barriers to achieving what you want, so these are explored, along with setting some goals to help you achieve what you want. It is important to work with your strengths and resources, and to tap into practical tools that can assist you to achieve your goals. Coaching can mean you are accountable to someone, encouraging you to make some changes and move forward.
My coaching style is supportive and practical, and I also bring experience as a therapist to this work. Many of the different types of therapy (for example, Cognitive Behaviour therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) have been adapted to coaching. Incorporating these approaches gives depth to the coaching.Coaching Payment
