What is trauma coaching?
Trauma coaching is life coaching for clients who have experienced trauma. This is not to be confused with therapy. Here’s an analogy. If you have a car accident, you go to the hospital, receiving care from various doctors and medicines. Once you are able to care for yourself, you go home. But you may still need help. When you undergo child abuse/neglect, eventually you are likely to go through therapy to help you process the past. A life coach helps you focus on the present and future to keep you moving forward.
While you may certainly see any life coach, it may be safer and more helpful to work with a trauma informed life coach, a.k.a. a trauma coach. The next question in the FAQ defines what it means to be trauma informed.
