Making Peace with the Coaching Paradox CE Lecture

Making Peace with the Coaching Paradox CE Lecture

While Introducing Your Client to Integrative Healing Approach with Meg Jordan, PhD, RN, CWP, ACC, NBC-HWC

As a professional health and wellness coach (or one in training), you worked hard to learn everything you could about achieving a healthy lifestyle, and you’re now a knowledgeable, experienced coach with credentials to prove it. Congratulations! And as a coach, you know to not expertly “download” all that vital information to your client, but are committed to guiding and facilitating the clients’ own healing journey without directing or advising. However, problems arise when your clients with chronic pain or chronic health conditions expect you to tell them what to do, and seek your opinion-- what is right and wrong, what path should they choose, or what complementary or integrative healing modalities might bring them relief from disabling symptoms.

The more you learn about supportive treatments like acupuncture, massage, Reiki, yoga, meditation, etc., the more you understand how navigating all these choices can be confusing for most people, especially those challenged with serious health conditions. This presentation will offer practical strategies for helping you recognize and work through this paradox: navigating the ‘push-pull’ tension of knowing a lot while refraining from saying it, and skillfully supporting clients as they choose and experience a world of healing options. Whether you are already knowledgeable about these integrative practices, or if this range of therapeutic options is foreign to you, this presentation will give you tools and perspectives to advance and improve your health coaching.
