“You don’t have to speak loud in order to be heard”
– Jessica Elix
How is coaching different from counseling?
Coaching is not counseling or psychotherapy. Many coaches are not trained mental health professionals. Coaches and their clients focus on the current events in career and life. The process does briefly acknowledge and touch on a client’s past experiences. This is done to notice repeated behaviors that might be a reason that growth is stunted. It’s a coach’s responsibility to refer a client to a mental health professional, or other outside help, whenever noticed.
Jessica E’s approach to coaching is strategic and very compassionate. I set a goal that I continued to put off until working with her. The end result for my experience is one of satisfaction. I highly recommend her for her organizational expertise.
I’ve been in a tough place in my work life and Jessica has really helped me work through it. By looking at both emotional and organizational processes, I’m on my way to a more fulfilling life, and Jessica’s kindness and perception have been invaluable.
