Mental health coaching is a form of strengths-based support for those experiencing mental health issues. Coaches help clients develop a healthy balance in life, give guidance in decision making and offer support in navigating mental health difficulties. Coaches help clients find ways to obtain and maintain stability, manage difficult symptoms, rebuild relationships, and find a purpose for living.
Mental Health Coaches do not diagnose or provide "therapy" . Life Coaching should never be a replacement of or a substitution for therapy or medical attention. Many medical facilities will refer to a Life Coach. Coaches build support for recovery and work on life goals such as relationships, work, and education. Mental health coaching is action-oriented with an emphasis on improving one's present life and reaching goals for the future.
Most mental health life coaching is done by zoom. Sam Timbrook's approach is from the Christian perspective but has worked with those from many beliefs.
