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.

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.

I am so grateful to Courtney for coming on the show, and giving us a look behind the curtain as she develops her very first group coaching program. So much of what Courtney shared in our coaching call today is something that I've heard from my clients, my members, and my students. And so I am just so appreciative of her willingness to ask the tough questions, to share some of what she's been pondering, because I know that she is not alone in wondering how to differentiate between her therapy clients and her coaching clients. How to know if a certain approach or technique is appropriate for coaching. And then of course, how to find ideal clients for that program. So Courtney, thank you for sharing your time, your talent, and your business with us. We've got links in the show notes to Courtney's website, so definitely reach out if you'd like to learn more.
