Coaches aren’t psychiatrists, or psychologists, or even counselors. We help you address your life now – we’re not trained or equip to help you with wounds from the past. Some coaches are also mental health professionals, but we’re not required to be. I’m definitely not – I’m a global health geek with a focus on systems. If you want me to look at barriers to mainstreaming mental health care in low-resource environments, I’m your women. But I’m not a psychiatrist.
Luckily, other people are:
Psychology Today has an endless stream of easily read articles on what makes your brain tick.
And goodtherapy.org can help you find a licensed therapist.
