What is TheraCoaching?

  • TheraCoaching is a wonderful option for people who want the support of a highly trained psychologist in reaching goals.  Coaching with Dr. Carmichael is a special combination of achievement-oriented work that is infused with psychotherapy.  Many people benefit from Dr. Carmichael’s coaching style because as a trained clinical psychologist,  Dr. Carmichael understands how to provide supportive encouragement while monitoring progress and fostering clients’ ability to remain focused on their goals.  As a trained clinician, Dr. Carmichael is very well-equipped to address the thought patterns and emotions that are a central part of goal achievement.

  • TheraCoaching works well for people who have a clear sense of what they want to do.  TheraCoaching clients benefit most from help with organizing or clarifying goals, breaking goals into objectives, identifying strategies to overcome obstacles, and then being held accountable to achieving the goals.

  • TheraCoaching goals can be business or personal in nature.  For example, you might use TheraCoaching to carry out a goal of finding a new job or changing careers.  You might also use TheraCoaching to focus on dating and relationship goals, or to carry out a weight loss plan.  When you have a clear goal, TheraCoaching is an invaluable support in achieving it.

How Does TheraCoaching Work?

Phase 1- Clarifying: Dr. Carmichael will meet with you to determine your goals and objectives.  This phase can be as quick as one session if you are already very certain of your goals.  You may also benefit from working with Dr. Carmichael to clarify your goals and objectives.

Phase 2- Strategizing: Once the goals and objectives are clear, you and Dr. Carmichael will identify obstacles and discuss the best strategies to overcome them.

Phase 3- Achieving: Finally, after considering the goals, objectives, obstacles, and strategies, you and Dr. Carmichael will implement a schedule to discuss your progress.  At these progress sessions, you and Dr. Carmichael will focus on the steps you are taking towards your goals, and revise the goals or obstacle-strategy as needed.  Progress sessions provide you with motivation, accountability, and support to reach your goals.
