WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching in a therapeutic setting is gaining popularity because it is aimed at helping you achieve specific goals while providing therapeutic support. Because of her training as a clinical psychologist, Dr. Zackson can help you as a life coach to attain your goals, while focusing on emotions and patterns that might get in the way.
Goal coaching is highly individualized and works well for personal and professional goals. For instance, you might use coaching to re-enter the job market, find a new career, meet financial or organizational goals, or address other life issues.
Dr. Zackson will work collaboratively with you as a life coach to develop a strategy for attaining your goals, and will then help you execute that strategy, step-by-step, addressing and eliminating obstacles that may arise in the process. We will identify skills that may need to be developed, and create a structure that will make goal achievement easier.
STEP ONE: DEFINE THE GOAL
Dr. Zackson will meet with you to specify your goal in a clear and measurable way. If you are not sure of your goal, Dr. Zackson will work with you to clarify it. When we are both clear on your goal, it will start to take on a new level of achievability.
STEP TWO: STRATEGIZE THE STEPS FOR ACHIEVING THE GOAL
Once the goal is clear, you and Dr. Zackson will strategize a plan to reach it by identifying obstacles and discussing the best ways to overcome them.
STEP THREE: ACHIEVING YOUR GOAL
You and Dr. Zackson will break down your goal into small steps, identify time frames for completion, discuss your progress, and deal with emotions that may come up along the way.
In progress sessions, you and Dr. Zackson will focus on the steps you’re taking towards your goals, and revise strategies if needed. These sessions are designed to provide you with insight, motivation, accountability, and support.
