What is Coaching?
The International Coaching Federation, which maintains very high credentialing standards, defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
The key skills of a well-trained coach include asking powerful questions and deep listening with a view toward helping clients discover their own solutions. Coaching can be helpful in almost any aspect of life. Recognized areas of focus include: Life coaching, Relationships, Transitions, Groups, Couples, Parents and Teens, Health and Wellness, and Sports Performance. Learn more about Dr. Campbell’s focus below.
What Coaching is NOT
Coaching is a very powerful process that can complement other approaches such as Therapy and Consulting, but it is important to understand the differences between these approaches.
A coach is NOT a therapist. A therapist works with people who are having difficulty functioning in their day-to-day lives for a wide variety of reasons. This often involves delving into one’s past. In contrast, a coach works with people who are functioning well, but want a partner to help them expand or grow in some way. The focus of coaching is on the future. Where are you now and how can you get where you want to be?
A coach is also NOT a Consultant. A consultant is hired to provide solutions, while a coach helps their client find their own answers. The philosophy of coaching is that every healthy person has the resources to achieve their dreams and the coach helps explore and nurture these inner resources.
It is not unusual for clients to use a combination of therapy, consulting, and coaching, but it is important to understand what to expect from each member of your team.
What Dr. Campbell Brings To Coaching
Dr. Ginger Campbell brings a unique set of skills to her coaching practice. First, she has over 30 years of experience as a physician including 5+ years in Palliative Medicine, a field that focuses on the importance of communication skills. In addition to hosting Graying Rainbows, Dr. Campbell also brings an extensive knowledge of neuroscience to her work as coach. She has hosted the podcast, Brain Science, since 2006. Over the years she has become highly skilled at asking meaningful questions as well as listening effectively. Besides the obvious importance of these skills in a coach, Dr. Campbell’s deep understanding of current neuroscience allows her to ground her coaching in an accurate understanding of how the human brain actually works. This especially appeals to clients who want a truly science-based approach.
Finally Dr. Campbell is currently enrolled as a student at IPEC, an internationally recognized coaching training program. Once her training is completed she will be eligible for ICF Certification.
When Can YOU start working with Dr. Campbell?
Dr. Campbell will begin accepting her first clients in the late fall of 2019. She anticipates having only a limited number of slots available because she is currently still practicing Palliative Medicine. If you are interested please sign up for the waiting list by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the form below. Clients will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
