What is a coach therapist?
A coach therapist is a qualified therapist who adapts their training to the work of a coach, integrating the two approaches, providing clients with a holistic personal experience of change, from surface level and external influences as well as the deeper internal issues, if required. It is a powerful combination that provides a robust frame for change. Two for the price of one!
I use my theoretical modalities of learning to inform my work as a coach, as well training in certain coaching practice. Trained in an integrative model, combining psychodynamic, systemic, person centred and attachment theories I adapt these to commonly used coaching models, such as GOAL, SPACE and the Personal Consultancy framework.
