G.L.I.D.E. Strategies for Life
In our work together I will first gain a thorough understanding of the issues or unmet needs that have brought you into treatment/coaching. To make a change, it is necessary to know where you want to go and where you are starting from including your readiness to change.
When it comes to change it’s not all or nothing. We go from not thinking about change, to thinking about change, to making a plan for change, to acting on the change to maintaining the change. As your therapist/coach I will utilize techniques to help you move down the path; from not thinking, to thinking, to planning, to do doing, to continue doing. As your readiness grows your vision of your healthiest, most fulfilling life will become clearer and your cofidence and commitment to this pursuit will continue to grow.
Our agenda for improving your ability to manage the mental aspects of health, your behaviors and/or relationships (parent-child, significant other, employer/co-worker/s etc…) is G.L.I.D.E. Strategies for Life:
G= Grow Your Coping Skills
L= Let Go of Negative Perceptions of the Past
I= Ignite Your Potential
D= Design Your Plan for Change
E= Engage with Your Plan
