“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”- Albert Einstein
In the most cases, a coach, as a motivator and advisor, is required when the person is in a transition phase and needs support.
Generally speaking, a coach – is the one, who helps you identify and change those areas of your life which you find unfulfilling or unsatisfactory.
The most common reasons to ask for a coach guidance are:
lack of motivation and passion
life goals recession
Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, just as any type of coaching, is a goal-directive process. It is based on adaptation of the techniques of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to coaching, applying it in a non-therapeutic way to the problems of everyday life, to enable individuals to securely and efficiently reach their goals.
Precisely speaking – Cognitive Behavioural Coaching is a fusion of cognitive behavioural therapy, solution focused approaches, goal setting theory, rational emotive therapy and social cognitive theory.
CBC is a goal-focused and a time-limited way, focused on the present. It is a non-therapeutic approach dealing with non-clinical problems and challenges.
Cognitive Behavioural Coaching primarily aimed at assisting individuals in:
challenging regressive beliefs,
enhancing motivation, self worth, problem-solving abilities,
in order to eliminate all possible psychological obstacles which interfere with the effective goal achievement.
Some questions to ask yourself before considering a coaching journey:
Is the improvement of your situation affected by stagnation due to the existing problems?
Do you have a goal besides the intention to solve the problem? What is the priority? Are you unsure about it?
Do you feel you need the independent professional confident guidance and support?
