What is Recovery Coaching
Helps individuals develop necessary life skills to manage everyday life in recovery such as:
Therapy vs. Recovery Coaching
Psychotherapy, also called talk therapy or counselling, helps individuals to gain insight into difficulties they are facing and helps individuals recognize cognitive distortions, irrational thought patterns, unconscious processes, and other such cognitive areas that typically result in emotional distress and mental health problems.
The primary difference between a therapist and a coach is that therapists tend to focus more on the past or present while recovery coaches tend to focus more on the present and the future. Therapists are often more focused on cognitions while coaches are often more focused on behaviour, achievable goals. Recovery coaches create action plans to achieve those goals, while also providing support and direction them along the way while also providing accountability and motivation.
CATCH Recovery offers in person or online therapy as well as recovery coaching as standalone or wrap around services in your bespoke outpatient treatment plan. You will discuss the best treatment program options for you with your CATCH Recovery case manager in your initial assessment.
Why Would You Need It?
Recovery coaching is all about developing the practical daily life skills required to stay sober and achieve long term recovery. It is important to note that coaches are not considered clinicians, and do not treat mental health conditions so this service is for patients who feel stabilised enough in their treatment process.
What is the Process?
CATCH works with several trained and experienced recovery coaches. You will meet with your assigned coach and each session will be tailored to your individual and specific needs. A lot of people will opt to have recovery coaching sessions in addition and alongside to therapy as they are truly mutually beneficial – however CATCH also offers recovery coaching as a stand-alone service.
