Support System Coaching
"Coaching is a process that aims to improve performance and focuses on the ‘here and now’ rather than on the distant past or future.
While there are many different models of coaching, here we are not considering the ‘coach as expert’ but, instead, the coach as a facilitator of learning.
There is a huge difference between teaching someone and helping them to learn. In coaching, fundamentally, the coach is helping the individual to improve their own performance: in other words, helping them to learn.
Good coaches believe that the individual always has the answer to their own problems but understands that they may need help to find the answer."
The aim of the support system coaching service is to empower the support system, within their individual role, in the application of meeting needs within their everyday lives.
Whether because of individual ability, desires, challenges, interests or a unique perspective due to various diagnoses, it can sometimes be overwhelming to pinpoint what someone with diverse abilities needs, what services are available, and what can be done to help them reach their fullest potential beyond what is already being done, and how to maintain independence.
My approach is intended to offer a direct service to the support system surrounding an individual requiring support, that creates more empowered care providers, who apply their knowledge effectively and respectfully.
The Coaching Process
Regardless of which environment you are a part of, or whether you are an individual, a family or on a team,
the support system coaching follows the same process.
It begins with a needs assessment, which is followed by my recommendations and referral in a comprehensive report.
The recommendations may include sessions/consultations with me
(either in person or online, on a regular or periodic basis,)
and/or referral to other services or resources.
My promise to you is to provide you the information that will truly make a difference in your life,
whether that be through my own services or elsewhere.
