Trauma Recovery is a relatively new addition to the field of coaching. As compared to traditional talk therapies, Trauma Recovery Coaching is bringing about the concept of healing alongside a fellow survivor; someone who can not only empathize with you but also provide validation and compassion from the viewpoint of both a peer and a coach.
Coaches are guides, teachers and peer mentors who set attainable goals with their clients in order for them to achieve the life they desire. Coaches also provide education about trauma and recovery, and unlike a clinical therapist, are able to share their personal experiences to let their clients know they are not alone in their thoughts and feelings. Coaches help their clients shift their thinking in order to replace those negative thoughts and coping mechanisms with a new, healthier perspective and a new toolbox of coping techniques, thereby causing a shift in how they view both themselves and the world.
Coaches come into play when the client is able to contribute to their own recovery as we do not diagnose or prescribe treatments or medications. Many people find coaching helpful as an addition to a traditional talk therapy or as a form of support after therapy or the initial crisis phase is over.
Here at Brave Wings Trauma Recovery and Peer Support, you will be welcomed with open arms and a compassionate heart. Services provided include one on one Trauma Recovery sessions, where we will not only break down your trauma, but break through it. Peer support calls are also available on Zoom or Skype and can range from 15 minutes to 45 minutes and are scheduled at your leisure. Peer support also includes a daily email of support and encouragement. Pricing ranges from $20 to $60, and I do work on a sliding scale. I believe access to care should be available for all without having to incur a debt.
