Critical Therapy offers different types of coaching services based on your individual needs. We focus on achieving lasting results and motivate clients to set and reach realistic goals.
We believe that both individuals and organizations benefit from coaching through development of:
- Critical thinking skills and strategies;
- A deep interrogation of power and power relationships in your life;
- Increased capacity to lead with self-reflection and empowerment;
- Understanding of how societal structures interact and impact well-being;
Our critical therapy coaches work with individuals, while always being mindful of larger systems: e.g., society, community, and organizations, to explore with the client what is occurring on a personal and professional level.
Life coaching is a one-on-one, collaborative process in which our trained professional (the coach) helps you (the client), achieve your personal life goals. Critical Therapy offers coaching grounded in psychotherapeutic, mindfulness, and anti-oppressive practices. The coaching relationship between us is a practice ground for growth and change. Within the coaching relationship, we can focus on your patterns and challenges in your relationship with yourself and others, exploring the root causes and trying out alternatives.
Leaders, executives, and administrators frequently take on diverse roles in rapidly changing environments. With tight deadlines and an ever-changing world, they are often asked to transform and develop organizations and to anticipate the human consequences of such changes. The results include high levels of anxiety, uncertainty, conflicts and resistances.
