The basic idea behind the coaching model is neuroplasticity: The brain gets good at whatever it does repeatedly—whether healthy or unhealthy—and this happens automatically.
Without awareness of this process and in the intensity of our daily lives, we unknowingly train our brains to be efficient at certain things which may be in conflict with our needs, values, or goals; we do not intentionally connect our actions and choices (and implicit biases interfere as well). This can create distress or make us feel stuck. Through the coaching relationship, clients work to connect with their autonomous motivation, increase their capacities, and leverage their strengths and past successes, in order to cultivate new behaviors and mindsets. The process employs a bit of excavation, visioning, goal setting, experimentation, and accountability, and facilitates improved self-reflection, creativity, self-awareness, self-compassion, and positivity.
In the consulting and psychoeducation realm, we apply a coaching framework, knowledge of mind, brain, and health science, and information about the context and environment in which you are navigating, to support you through parenting and other mental health treatment decisions for you or your loved ones.
We are also available to help your family, school, or organization integrate tenets of social and emotional learning, positive psychology, and brain-based science into the system's culture and daily practice.
