Mental Health 

The mental health crisis has impacted Americans across the country. The current average waitlist for mental health assistance is up to 1 year even though 1 out of every 5 individuals in the U.S. suffers with a mental health challenge. 

Mental health coaching can help manage emotions, challenge negative thinking patterns, reduce stress and feelings of anxiety, improve relationship skills, process difficult life events, achieve goals, improve communication, overcome setbacks, improve sleep, plan for the future, improve overall wellness, identify natural strengths, acquire skills in self-care and self-management, increase quality of life, and develop hope. 

Coaching Vs. Therapy

Coaching: Integrates faith-based principals with professional coaching techniques to help you through hardships and to improve your overall quality of life

Therapy: May also assist in determining diagnoses and past wounds so you can be clinically treated

Coaching: Looks toward your future and develops a strategy to get there from where you are today through education, support, learning and practicing new techniques, and accountability 

Therapy: Focuses on healing from the past and symptom relief through various forms of therapeutic interventions

Coaching: Focus is on future possibilities, your strengths, learning and practicing skills related to your goals, overcoming weaknesses, and ongoing support 

Therapy: Focus on solving problems, symptom relief, daily functioning, and treating disorders 

Coaching: Works well for those who are struggling with feelings of anxiety, grief,  sadness, focus, anger, behavior changes, stress, hardships in life, and more

Therapy: Can accommodate a higher level of care, more complex needs, and treating diagnosed mental health disorders 

Both therapy and coaching offer immense value, each with unique traits and significant overlaps. Knowing which one is best suited to your current life stage helps you to make the most of your time and efforts. Contact us if you need help determining if coaching is right for you!

There is a continuum in the medical field that the mental health system lacks. Treatment typically starts at a local pharmacy for over-the-counter medication. If the problem persists a primary care nurse practitioner or physician is consulted, but if it is severe a referral is made to a specialist. If an immediate or major problem occurs, a trip to the hospital is needed. Once healing begins, there is an option to step down to physical or occupational therapy, then being cared for by family or home health. Finally, recovery. Conversely, the mental health system usually doesn't get utilized until the equivalent of seeing a specialist or going to the hospital. There is a lack of care for those who are in need of help, but are not at the point of needing high level intervention. Mental health coaches are here to bridge that gap. Early assistance can often prevent the need of a higher-level intervention or mental health crisis.
