What is positive psychology coaching?

Coaching is a confidential and trust-based relationship between a client, who wants to:

  • Improve a certain area of his life

  • Optimize his performance and achieve certain goals

  • Gain clarity and a clear course of action 

  • Has an issue he wants to prevent from becoming a full-blown problem

oaching, on the other hand, has a present/future orientation, focuses on goals and desired outcomes, draws on the client’s potential, strengths, and skills to maximize fulfillment in life and work

Even though both approaches rely on developing awareness and developmental issues, therapy relies on awareness of past experiences to bring about healing in the present, and coaching sheds light into unseen possibilities and strengths thus linking awareness to action. 

Both, psychology coaching and positive psychology coaching, are approaches that stem from psychological theory and professionals of these branches are trained in either psychology or positive psychology, informing their work with research of the field. 

Psychology coaching uses the science of psychology in practical ways that support the clients towards creating success and well-being in their personal and professional lives.

Positive psychology coaching uses the science of well-being and research-based assessments and interventions to bring about greater satisfaction and fulfillment in life.

The Benefits of Coaching

One of the changes seen over the last years is that there now is a strong body of research showing the effects and benefits brought about by a coaching process.

We no longer need to rely solely on the experiences of clients and, instead, we can actually count on science to provide data that accounts for the effectiveness of coaching and the different tools used. 

Studies show that coaching:

  • Makes a significant impact on one’s overall life satisfaction

  • Is an effective approach to goal attainment and personal development

  • Helps clients become more effective by teaching them how to set concrete, measurable goals and break them down into manageable steps

  • Is an effective strategy in which the collaborative efforts help the client identify and take action towards creating change in his life

  • Asking challenging questions encourages the client to look for new ways of coming up with solutions and seems to be a key element in effective coaching
