From surviving to thriving: Moving Beyond the Survival Self (Coaching in Practice Series) (UK Higher Education Humanities & Social Sciences Counselling and Psychotherapy)
Many readers have contacted me to say how valuable and useful they have found this book. In it I define and clarify the term ‘trauma’ and to show how we can work in a way that is trauma informed. I am not encouraging Coaches to become therapists or counsellors, but to bring the awareness of trauma, and how it presents within coaching, in to their work where appropriate. Many Coaches are concerned about moving into a therapeutic space, and hopefully this book reassures them and demonstrates what is appropriate within a coaching frame of working. I show that even very successful people can be traumatised and that that can undermine their life choices and their self-care, as well as perhaps having a negative impact on their relationships with those that work for and with them. I’m told it is clearly written and accessible. Some readers have sent me photos of all the highlighting they have used when reading it. Am just pleased that many are finding it so useful.
