Why a Wellness Coach?
What is CBT?
The American Psychological Association has said: "Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders, and severe mental illness. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life. In many studies, CBT has been demonstrated to be as effective as, or more effective than, other forms of psychological therapy or psychiatric medications."
CBT is based on the core ideas that most problems in life are a result of distorted or disordered thinking patterns, which create unhealthy emotions, and ultimately unhelpful or even destructive behavior.
When we learn to identify different thinking patterns, our perspective on life truly changes. We can come to understand that real change is possible, and that we aren't doomed to be stuck in the same miserable patterns. It also helps us better understand others and improve our relationships. CBT has been found to be one of the best methods for dealing with Anxiety and OCD.
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy combined with other coaching techniques to help you overcome any obstacles you may be facing. You'll learn to trust yourself more, understand yourself better, and discover the healthiest way to be YOU!
What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
With the relentless demands of work and life responsibilities, sometimes we'll find that what we are doing to try to transform our Health is no longer working and we’re looking for something greater.
Sometimes we don’t know what to do to change our Health, but more often it’s that we’re stuck in a rut and don’t know how to get out of it.
95% of our behavior occurs out of habit, either unconsciously or in reaction to external demands. That’s why we struggle to make changes that last. Even when the need for change is obvious and our intentions are strong, we often fall short. This is where CBT comes in.
Many Professionals either don’t have the time or the skills to help you stay motivated and follow through to get lasting results. So people default to their set habits, even when they know those habits make them feel lousy. Without the right support and accountability, this dysfunctional cycle will continue and in many cases, get worse.
That’s where a CBT coach like me comes in, to provide the right system, support, and accountability so you can - finally! - make the changes that are best for YOUR life.
Where do I come in?
A coach can be invaluable in helping to uncover what’s getting in the way of where we want to be in Health or in Life.
We can often feel stuck, overwhelmed or maybe just don't know where to start. Shifting limiting beliefs and destructive habits brings new perspectives and possibilities.
Understanding how nutrition affects the body and how all elements of lifestyle holistically impact our health from relationships to career to mindset to stress levels, we can get to the root of your imbalance and find new ways to help you feel your best.
The truth is there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach but we Connect YOUR Dots so you can make lasting changes and live a more balanced and fulfilled life.
