What is integral coaching?
Integral coaching is an equal working relationship between the Coach and the Client in a collaborative and creative process that inspires and supports the client to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaching means building an individual’s competence to better face life circumstances.
The integral coaching process is designed to guide the client through a process of self-exploration and observation through conversations, positive inquiry, reflection exercises, and pragmatic “practices.” The body of work is designed to help the client gain awareness of challenges and opportunities in their life and to help them develop skills, competencies, behaviors and attitudes to help improve performance and effectiveness over time.
Coaching is integral because we include everything about the client and the client’s world in coaching. This includes what the client is aware of along with their potential—what could be brought about through focused, skillful methods. We bring forth a view of the client that includes how the client represents themselves and also investigates their social world, habits, relationship with their physical health, the quality of self-care, the amount of attention and energy available to take on change, and much more.
What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
Coaching is not therapy. It’s not psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care or substance abuse treatment. Therapy addresses past events and how those events may be affecting you in the present. Coaching addresses the present and future, and recommends certain actions that enable you to reach your stated goals in your business or personal life. These recommendations are based on the coach’s knowledge, skills and expertise.

What are outcomes to coaching?

Competence in “self-generating,” the ability to initiate and realize personal growth on your own after the coaching engagement is through
