More than just fixing what ails them, many therapists today seek to help clients achieve personal and professional goals and navigate life changes successfully-a variety of practice called life coaching. This book offers a complete strategy professionals can use to incorporate life coaching into their practices.
Becoming a Life Coach compares the role of the therapist to that of the life coach; the role of the patient to that of the client; the service of the mentally ill to that of the mentally healthy; treatment to collaboration; and finally the differences in professional standing between these two endeavors. Using real coaching exercises, the book teaches therapists everything they need to know to start and maintain a successful coaching practice. It includes information about necessary skills, tips on integrating coaching and therapy, business models, marketing advice, and more.
