Coaching is an approach that is different from therapy in that it focuses on specific life areas through identifying specific goals you want to work towards. Dr. Renye works using a model of holistic coaching, which means she helps you look at all areas of your life: physical, mental, sexual, spiritual, career, intimacy and relationship. She offers a practical approach that is streamlined to help you achieve your specific goal and to help you live the life you want rather than the one you “should.”
Coaching drastically differs from psychotherapy in that coaching uses a step by step process to help you get where you want to be in life. It doesn’t delve deeply into the past of childhood, old memories and the rehashing of trauma. These areas may be touched upon in session, but only in the service of looking at the present and how to move forward. Therapy helps you understand where you’ve been, how long standing patterns and ways of living that you learned early in life developed and may be continuously influencing how you live now, and how you can make deep shifts in your long entrenched make up of yourself. The process of therapy tends to be more involved, longer duration and less specific goals.
Coaching helps you get the tools and tips you need for that specific goal or change through the use of action plans. Coaching, through time limited sessions and packages, offers clients tools they can use to get respite from their current state of mind and affairs and decide how to make changes that will go into effect immediately.
