Recovery Coaching

Authenticity coaching helps balance how we realize our own needs while being around others and, at the same time, meeting the obligations those relationships bring. Coaching recognizes our potential to be derailed along the authenticity journey and explores how we regain and restore our balance.
This workshop will provide clarity regarding our values, beliefs, goals, and help to reflect how and when we deviate to far from our preferred path. It will explore how we can coach our clients with authenticity, encouraging a greater and more equal degree of connection with the clients, environment, peers and superiors.
