As a Mental Health Coach, I help clients manage emotions, challenge negative thinking patterns, improve relationship skills, and reduce stress and anxiety — all of which improves your mental health.
Many people have a lower cost health system to run to when you are physically sick such as your own medicine cabinet, your drugstore and regular doctor. But what about when life’s issues have bombarded you. Maybe issues and past traumas have caught up to you and you feel your mental health slipping away?
A coach is one who teaches and society has sports coaches, and life coaches, but mental health coaches are very few. Your mental of health is just as important has your physical and spiritual. Many people do not have insurance to afford high paying Psychiatrists and Counselors. A peer mental health coach is therapeutically effective, as I will help individuals manage their illness more effectively, including guiding you to help your physical health while growing closer to God to help your spiritual health. As a peer mental health coach, I will guide you and help you to discover issues you need to work on and help you to examine and focus on your whole self; spirit (in order to help lead you to the One who created you and can help to heal what is going on within you), mind and body to identify the areas of growth that are needed.
A mental health coach is a point on a continuum that currently does not exist in the mental healthcare system. We also assist pastors to get the mentally ill within their congregation the therapeutic and supportive intervention they need to recover more fully.
As a Mental Health Coach, I am trained and certified and can be that point of contact to help guide on the right path to find answers and solutions. It may be sessions with me, coaching along with other supportive avenues that upon assessment, I can help lead you to.
As a Mental Health Coach I will help you to:
1. identify your natural strengths, skills and talents
2. Look at the passions that drive you, and what you care about
3. Help you to maximize your strengths
4. Look at how to reach your goals
5. Listen and provide support
6. Help you to recognize actions that are hurting you or holding you back
7. Encourage and point out your self-sabotaging mindsets in order to overcome them
8. Help you to recognize and celebrate your progress
My focus is to help individuals become whole in spirit, soul and body. To work toward healing in every area of your life. The goal is to awaken you to a new life and feeling energized, and to become aware of your inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan.
I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
