Depending on client's needs and life situation what I do can be characterized as crisis support, counseling, or life coaching.
At certain points of our life we may suffer from severe forms of physical and emotional pain and experience extreme levels of loneliness, isolation, depression and anxiety. While ideally all of these should be addressed systematically in order for changes in one's life to occur, at the moment of acute crisis we may prioritize something as basic as having safe emotional space and connecting with another calm and non-judgemental person.
Oftentimes depression, anxiety, and loneliness are manifestations and symptoms of deeper problems — unlived grief, suppressed fear or guilt, never ending resentment or regret, etc. Without resolving those internal issues, we risk building our life without a strong foundation. While the primary way of addressing these matters is psychotherapy (which I always advocate for), it is worth accounting for these factors in many aspects of our daily life.
Coaching begins by helping one to identify their beliefs and values, the unspoken rules defining personal narratives and myths. These constructs are largely formed by social norms and traditions, they may have been useful at certain points in our lives, yet no longer serve their purpose.
On the way to accomplishing personal goals, I emphasize the balance between setting, achieving, and adjusting those, as well as identifying the underlying motivations:
How do I achieve my goals? ⟷ What my goals actually are? ⟷ Why these are my goals?
This way one develops a solid base while progressing in the desired direction. For example, as the true power comes from within, the key to developing such qualities as confidence or leadership lies in being more conscious and responsible for the choices, acknowledging the risks, and openly facing the unpredicted outcomes of our actions.
