It is not therapy, counselling or treatment. It is highly complementary in many circumstances to these other professions and recovery coaches are encouraged to form alliances and positive professional relationships with others assisting in the field of recovery.
Recovery Coaching is a Niche Model
Recovery Coaching is a niche model that is focusing on using the coaching relationship to facilitate change within addictive and destructive behavioural patterns. It is coaching with a specialty in recovery from any challenging situation ~ addiction, illness (or mindset around illness), life-changes… Embedded here is the development of self, resilience, endurance, and expansion.
It engages with various models of coaching and where this fits within the systemic model of detrimental behaviours – addiction, substance abuse, weight loss, workaholism, etc.
It takes a look at the brain and it’s responses to various situations. We explore how coaching within these responses can be useful and hugely raise self-awareness. It is a growing niche market and we’re very excited about being pioneers in this area of coaching.
We would very much like to partner up with other passionate coaches and to collaborate in getting this form of coaching into the marketplace.
Knowledge of coaching in this arena is important and applicable to all individuals, as it looks at behaviour patterns. It prepares us to engage with and address addictive behaviour, which exists in all of us.
