What is Coaching?

Coaching is encouraging, hope-filled, motivational and action-driven. It is about calling forth the intellect, brilliance, amazing problem-solving, and creativity in you. It’s also about growing in self-awareness, personal strengths and stretching yourself to staying intentional about your healing journey.

An easy way to view coaching is through a medical analogy. You are in a major car accident (discovery or relapse day). You are rushed into surgery, they just want to get the bleeding to stop, get it contained (initial support could look like pastor, mentor). Days later (in our case sometimes weeks or months) you are still in the hospital. Your body is beginning to heal from the traumatic day (scabs appearing) they decide to go in for another surgery to “fix” somethings (therapist). Following surgery your body is beginning to heal well but the muscles are still weak. You are referred out to Physical Therapy (coaching). You are given individual who assesses the injury, understands the workings of a healthy body and helps you construct a plan of recovery. You both work to come up with exercises that will both improve and strengthen your body and heart.

What can you expect?

We will work together to help you look at where you are now and where you would like to be. Together we will work to bridge that gap. We will pray together…probably cry together, and run hard after Jesus together.

I believe that accountability is just as important for you as it is for the addict. This is a great place to find accountability and keep moving toward healing as you learn new tools to navigate your journey.

Is Coaching the Next Right Step for you? Here are a few questions to consider for coaching:

  • Are you struggling to identify the places you are feeling stuck in your recovery? 
  • Have you attempted to create boundaries but struggle to hold to them? 
  • Are you needing space to brainstorm or think through future needs, decisions, events? 
  • Do you need support to think through support plans like therapeutic separation, rebuilding trust, relapse/slip plans? 
  • Are you having a hard time seeing God in the middle of the mess? Do you need support shifting your eyes?
