What is Coaching?
Polly J. King, M.A., Certified Professional Life Coach and Counselor
What is my counseling approach?
I practice systems and cognitive therapy. With systems therapy I work with the person or persons in my office but I assess the systems in which you are currently living and the systems in which you grew up. As a cognitive therapist we together examine your beliefs, perspectives , that may voluntarily or involuntarily be creating self defeating patterns of behavior. Your goal for requesting counseling guides the focus of the counseling, combined with my professional direction as to the process of achieving those goals. Our forming an open, honest, trusting relationship is an essential ingredient for healthy change to occur. While results are not guaranteed, positive change is attainable with persistence and hard work.
