It seems now that anyone can give coaching sessions. After a classroom course that lasts a few months, or via its online mode, a certificate is printed and hangs on the wall. Faster than you can say “help me please”, there are many who can answer to your troubles and charge you 80 dollars. It is fine, it is the virtue of capitalism and the consequence of breaking the paradigms of psychology. What I find alarming, even dangerous, is how easy it is to fall into inexperienced hands. Although the intentions are genuine and the world thirsts to deepen the layers of the psyche, it is not so easy to offer a high quality service.
The hero’s journey…. or the phony coach?
After overcoming moments of suffering, many people assume the role of the savior. As if transcending this or that experience endowed em with magical abilities to help others. I do not doubt that it is the case of several. Many have succesfuly overcome dark situations and when the storm is over, there is a wave of peace and wellbeing. That, however, may not be enough to become a coach, even after being taken with the most sought-after teacher in the city.
The world of coaching is full of gray areas
Where does a true calling starts and the business ends? How much experience is enough? To what extent is it valid to charge for help that may not work? The word phony is very hard. Maybe we should distinguish cheating from incompetence. What is a fact is that there are coaches everywhere and everyone has the right to exercise their work. The call here is towards the clients, to you readers who consider asking for help to reach your goals or to solve an emotional problem. I invite you to inform yourselves, to learn more about the experience of those who say they can guide you, to try to find consistency.
