WHAT TO EXPECT DURING PSYCHOTHERAPY?
Psychotherapy is a collaborative dialogue in a safe and supportive environment between a client and a qualified therapist. The safe and supportive environment supports the client to explore their feelings openly and without judgement. The client and the therapist work together to identify and modify thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The goal of the process is to identify maladaptive behaviors and thoughts and learn new and effective skills to cope with challenges in the future.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PSYCHOTHERAPY?
Psychotherapy is the process of learning the lessons of our personal history so that we develop more effective ways to shape the future.
The therapeutic process will allow the client to identify positive and negative themes to create insight into their behaviors, thoughts and feelings. The therapeutic process will allow the client to bring the negative themes into awareness and put them into words and create action steps. The goal of the therapeutic process is to have the client create their own solutions and practice more rewarding behaviors.

WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?
Life Coaching is a collaborative process between a certified coach and a client that is designed to tap into the client's full potential.
The coaching process is uniquely different from mentoring, psychotherapy or counselling, as the coach is working the client to discover obstacles with the intention to work through these challenges through different coaching techniques.
The coaching process focuses on goal-setting, deepening one's own self understanding and exploration of obstacles and challenges with the intention to take a client's self potential to the next level. The coaching process is a future oriented process with the inclusion of insight from past experiences.
Many successful business leaders, executives, professionals and entrepreneurs have been known to hire a life coach to take their businesses and personal lives to the next level of potential.
