Successful long term recovery requires strategy
The success of maintaining recovery long term lies in our daily behaviours and mindset. It's a lifelong practice. And, just like business, requires hard work, commitment and discipline. It takes time, patience and perseverence. In return, it can give you a life of joy, meaning and purpose.
I provide coaching for individuals who are seeking a supportive and proactive coach to stay aligned to what they want to achieve in life and ensure they maintain intentional, strong recovery. This includes identifying and overcoming challenging barriers to recovery, including stigma, shame and stress.
Who is recovery coaching for?
The wolf mentality is the practice of being brave, strong, taking ownership of your life and going for what you want and deserve.
Recovery coaching is effective when you
- have just finished a rehab program
- are under pressure in your executive role
- are looking to strengthen your recovery journey
- are feeling ‘wobbly’ and overwhelmed with too much on your plate with work, family life and recovery.
The strength of your recovery is a necessity for the success of your life.
The many benefits include
- my focused coaching approach to help you navigate your recovery journey
- learning evidence-based tools for behavioural change
- essential habit forming and goal setting skills
- developing a more balanced and holistic approach to life
- discovering effective strategies to help with emotional regulation
- mindfulness practices for stress reduction and resilience
- accountability and ongoing support.
As your recovery coach I will help you identify your blind spots or triggers, and work with you to develop and strengthen a set of tools to keep you on track, even in the most challenging situations. I’ll also be there to ground you with support, guidance and accountability for when things feel tough.
While recovery from substance use is the primary focus, I address your whole life, encompassing health and wellness, self-care, and coping skills.
My coaching method includes evidence-based psychological and behaviour change methods, and neuroscience. I do not ascribe to one particular pathway – my approach honours individuality. I tailor our work together using a range of strategies for the best outcomes.
I help you dive deep into your purpose, your ‘raison d’être’, and your motivation for your recovery journey. This helps you work out what you want, most importantly why you want it, and what could be stopping you, before we create a plan of action together.
How it works
Recovery is a lifelong, courageous practice.
Sessions are online, which is least disruptive to your day and allows us to work together wherever you are in the world.
Each session is 60 minutes. However, if there is greater urgency for change, I offer 90 minute appointments.
I usually coach clients once a week for a minimum of 6 weeks. We then review progress and decide whether further sessions would be useful. Later in a coaching program, fortnightly or monthly sessions can be suitable.
However, people are individuals, and each coaching arrangement is unique and tailored to meet the goals you want to achieve. Many of my clients contract my services as a long-term, ongoing agreement. Some need intense coaching support for a week or more when they first leave a treatment centre. In our initial call, we will discuss the best option for you.
