Cognitive Behavioral Coaching

What is Life Coaching - Bloom

Cognitive Behavioral Coaching uses Cognitive Behavior Therapy Techniques (CBT) to help improve your mental well-being, increase hope, optimism, and joy so you can live a happier and more fulfilling life.

CBC can help you decrease levels of stress, anxiety, and depression through a present-focused intervention that enables you to find perspective and connect to your values and strengths. As a result, you will be able to get unstuck, find meaning, and move forward. It’s a perfect fit for relationship issues, work/life balance, life transitions, and when you are stuck in life.

Coaching outcomes:

  • You will learn tools on how to be more present with your thoughts and emotions in a nonjudgmental way
  • You will learn to identify limiting patterns of thinking (thinking traps), and how to challenge them so you can make more wise value-based decisions
  • Communicate more effectively in your relationships so you get your needs met (personally and professionally)

And much more.

Coaching vs. Therapy

“Coaching is all about helping people make positive changes. So the more people coaching touches, the more positive the world can be.”

-ICF

The main distinction between “coaching” and “therapy” is that Coaching focuses on moving a person from point A to point B through a thought-provoking process of creating a vision for the future, setting goals for success, identifying present strengths and weaknesses to learn about oneself and find areas of improvement and development.

On the other hand, psychotherapy looks to diagnose deep-seated emotional issues so they can begin a process of healing with individuals experiencing some level of dysfunction or disorder.

CBC can help you decrease levels of stress, anxiety, and depression through a present-focused intervention that enables you to find perspective and connect to your values and strengths. As a result, you will be able to get unstuck, find meaning, and move forward. It’s a perfect fit for relationship issues, work/life balance, life transitions, and when you are stuck in life.

When coaching might not be the right fit? Your symptoms are more severe and clinical. To work on trauma. Mental health conditions that need medication management.

We look forward to learning more about you and seeing how we can help you increase your levels of mental well-being.
