The following list includes a short overview of the most common skills we teach. As research evolves, so does our skills coaching. We can't wait to start this adventure with you!
We help our clients choose challenging, but achievable, goals. We guide them as they identify their wish, visualize the outcome, recognize their obstacles, and plan accordingly. Then, we measure progress and adjust the plan as needed.
We believe that stress in moderation is a normal and useful part of life. We work with clients to re-frame the way they think about stress as a useful, energy-giving tool that helps us achieve. Then, we help them build stress management skills and stress resilience.
The #1 thing that predicts physical and psychological well-being is healthy relationships and connection. Now, more than ever, it's critical for people to learn social skills and connect with people IRL (in real life).
Before change can occur, we need to believe that it is possible for us to grow and develop. Working on transforming a fixed mindset to a growth mindset is at the core of our work with students.
We teach clients how to focus on their emotions and how these feelings are related to patterns of thoughts and behaviors. Once we have this foundation of awareness, wholeminders learn and practice new forms of healthy emotional expression.
First, we work to discover the causes of time management challenges through conversation and time tracking. Then, we introduce solution-based methods to increase awareness of assignments and obligations, planning, and prioritizing.
Willpower is the power to control our behaviors so that our actions align with our big goals. The great news is, willpower can be trained! We work with clients to grow their willpower muscle, starting with small exercises that inspire big changes.
We begin by identifying current coping skills and discussing their effectiveness. Following this, we are able to explore alternative forms of coping that are varied in theme. Possible themes include movement, distraction, and reasoning.
When our expectations of ourselves are different from our reality, it’s easy to be self-critical. This can contribute to low self-esteem and an inability appreciate one's worth. These sessions aim to decrease self-criticism through the practice of self-compassion.
