Finding the Right Coach
Finding the right coach is critical to your success.
There are coaches providing services that
come from all kinds of backgrounds, including coaches with no psychological training. While there are
many great coaches who are not also therapists, having a coach
that is also a psychologist allows you to take advantage of the full range of skill, knowledge, and experience
in human behavior and change that a psychologist possesses.
It's important for you to find a coach that motivates you by their interpersonal style. Equally important
is your feeling that there's a good match or fit between your style and the coach's approach. You should
feel comfortable being able to trust and effectively communicate with your coach.
Your coach should also provide the highest standards of privacy and confidentiality, and follow ethical
guidelines, such as those developed by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Your coach should also
have experience and training specifically in the coaching process.
