What is Coaching?

At The Breathing Space, you can enjoy a coaching session with Robert, a certified Positive Psychology Coach. The goal of a coaching relationship is to help individuals tap into, and actualize their deepest vision of who they are. A coach acts as a facilitator for a client’s full flowering as a person — a  gardener of the spirit.

Though Coaching is not therapy, both use numerous skills in common, such as active listening, reframing and empathy.

The key difference between coaching and therapy has more to do with mindset than method. While both coaching and therapy can help people make major life changes, coaching liberates therapy from its medical, pathology-based underpinnings and focuses wholly on human strengths, positive passions and the nurturance of untapped possibilities. Furthermore, when contrasted to talk therapy or even the classical Yoga teacher/ Student dynamic, coaching offers a more egalitarian and holistic route to a healthier life than can be found in traditional, hierarchical, helping relationships.

You can use your coaching session to address such issues as:

  • Making career changes
  • Finding a life partner
  • Addressing problematic relationships
  • Navigating challenging life transitions
  • Release from addictions/obsessions
  • Achieving goals/ realizing dreams
  • Deepening a spiritual connection
