This week we are continuing the theme of looking at what your clients may be up against in their life.
Today we explore depression and anxiety. But aren't those therapy issues? Sometimes, yes, when either is showing up because of past trauma or abuse.
Yet, sometimes anxiety comes from fear and depression comes from lack of alignment with our Truest Self. When I faced my truth, through coaching, both faded for me naturally.
I've seen so many clients and friends experience depression or anxiety only because they are out of touch with something important to them, or true for them.
This is where integrative coaching comes in. As coaches, we help our clients locate their truth, values and their needs so that they can illuminate a new path to take action to meet those needs and lead a fulfilled life.
