psychotherapy & coaching consonance  

Coaching augments normal healthy people in achieving their goals be it career, health, work-life balance, adventure, philanthropy and so forth.  Psychotherapy on the other hand is more demanding as it deals with people with psychological disorders, residue of suppressed emotions and anxieties etc. Whilst coaching is forward oriented, and helps clients realise their full potential, psychotherapy delves deeper into the  mind to understand the constraints imposed as some clients are stuck in the past with unresolved issues.

With both coaching & psychotherapy skills, Nandu  has a holistic understanding of the human mind as against seeing it in its constituent parts which facilitates him in pursuing the right intervention strategies. He blends in the ‘reflection & feeling oriented’ exploration skills from psychotherapy into his coaching style and is able to invoke the necessary shifts in his client. Coaching draws considerable inspiration from psychotherapy hence there is  congruence between both approaches.

OUR BELIEFS DEFINE US AND IT EITHER MAKES US LEAP OR CAP OUR POTENTIAL. IT HAS FORMED OUT OF UNINTENTIONAL CONDITIONING, RESTRICTED WORLDVIEW AND LACK OF SELF-AWARENESS. THESE LIMITING BELIEFS & INNER CONFLICTS NEEDS ELIMINATION OR RE-ORIENTATION. 

HEADSTRIDE COACHING USES CONSTRUCTIVE LANGUAGE, TARGETED RESTATEMENTS AND INCISIVE QUESTIONING TO

UNCAP THESE BELIEFS & CONFLICTS INORDER TO CREATE

A PATHWAY FOR DECISION AND ACTION.

A TRIFLE CONSOLES US, FOR A TRIFLE DISTRESSES US.
