Mindfulness Coaching is a type of mind training that works to strengthen the development of critical thinking, collaboration, influence, conflict management, and many other key competencies. With the support of a professional coach, increasing one’s self-awareness and potential through both cognitive and somatic practices is proving to be a powerful catalyst to sustainably improve well-being and performance.
What’s the difference between Coaching and Psychotherapy? Coaching is a non-medical service. Coaching is more focused on helping you achieve your future goals, while psychotherapy tends to have more of a past and present focus.
