So what is Cognitive Behavioural Coaching?
Well, it’s not as scary as it sounds. With its origins in counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC) is a powerful coaching model that draws on evidence based psychological models.
The strategies, activities, techniques and exercises used are effective in helping individuals identify and challenge individual thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are self-defeating.
Negative thinking leads to negative emotions and negative emotions lead to negative behaviours, all of which has an effect on an individual’s body.
Many common daily challenges such as stress, lack of confidence, perfectionism, loss of meaning and purpose, poor communication skills or being less successful at work usually lead back to an individual’s personal perception of self and the behaviours engaged in on a daily basis.
Cognitive-Behavioural Coaching aims to help clients gain a perspective about whatever is at the root of that person’s difficulty. Coach and client work together to identify what might be stopping an individual from reaching his or her full potential and what action is needed to take charge of their situation.
The aim of Cognitive Behavioural Coaching
The aim of CBC is to develop ways of thinking and the associated behaviours that are more productive and likely to assist the individual reach their desired goals in life. The process helps clients move towards becoming the kind of person they want to be, attaining the types of outcomes desired personally and professionally.
If someone can talk themselves into being miserable or ineffective they can talk themselves out of such feelings and learn the associated behaviours that will lead to success.
Whether emotional or practical, everything an individual needs to be successful can be traced back to a set of skills. CBC helps individuals develop such skills.
