Show Notes

If you’ve been wondering about making the transition from therapy into coaching or starting a new group coaching program, this episode is for you.

For today’s coaching call, I’m so excited to introduce you to Courtney Watson, a counselor based on the West Coast with quite a bit of experience providing trauma therapy.

Courtney is interested in creating a group coaching program and on this call we cover quite a lot of ground from whether you need to start with one-on-one coaching, how to differentiate between your therapy and coaching clients, what goes into starting a group program, what you can do to vet potential members for your program, and more.

I’m so grateful to Courtney for sharing what she’s been pondering and giving us a look behind the curtain as she develops her first group coaching program. So much of what Courtney shared reflects what I’ve heard from my clients, members, and students and I think you'll get a lot out of today's coaching call.

TRANSCRIPT

 

 Well, hello, my friend. Welcome to the Coach with Clarity podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough, and I have the honor of hosting this show every week. And I am so thrilled that you are joining me today for a coaching call. I absolutely love coaching calls because it's an opportunity for me to connect one-on-one, and provide some targeted coaching to an up-and-coming coach, and that is exactly what we have in store for you today. I am so excited to introduce you to Courtney Watson. Courtney is a counselor based on the West Coast, who has quite a bit of experience providing trauma therapy. And she's interested in transitioning into coaching, specifically group coaching, and had some questions around how to do so, especially without doing one-on-one coaching first, and how to speak to a population that is similar to the people she serves as a therapist. So we talk a lot about how to differentiate between the two audiences, how to start a group program, and how to bring people into that initial cohort. We actually covered quite a bit in our 30 minute conversation, so I think you're going to get a lot out of today's coaching call. So I'm really glad you're here. Let's go ahead and get started. Here's my coaching call with Courtney Watson.
