MY INTENTION TO YOU
As a recovery coach I keep a client’s mood up with positive tone and practice active listening. I encourage self-care, and point clients toward helpful strategies and incorporate various tools as we look at taking responsibility and accountability to move from a culture of addiction to a culture of recovery and wellness. Sticking to a plan, staying positive, and recovering from setbacks is much easier with the support of another person. It isn’t always easy to be objective about how well you are doing, or where you are struggling. I can support you through the change where you will know that there is another person in your corner keeping you accountable.
The difference between a RECOVERY COACH and a THERAPIST, SPONSOR or DOCTOR?
A recovery coach is not a therapist, sponsor or a doctor. I am a completely separate professional engaged by you to help with your recovery. Some people engage with a recovery coach first to help them figure out what other types of professionals they need. Some get a recovery coach after rehab to help them make the transition home and continue to support their sobriety.
A sponsor is a volunteer who is also in recovery. Their role is to be a supportive friend and share with you some of the lessons they have already learned. By helping you through the 12 Step program, your sponsor also learns and reinforces lessons that help you with your own recovery journey.
In contrast, a recovery coach is a trained professional. I act like a friend in supporting your recovery, but have all the knowledge and tools you need to be successful. As recovery coach I have undergone formal training and get paid for my expertise.
Studies show that up to two-thirds of those who leave treatment can return to use within a few weeks. This is why it is critical that people get the support they need in early recovery.
The Infinity Symbol
The infinity symbol holds a deep meaning for spirituality, love, beauty, and power. … In a world filled with distraction and complications, the infinity symbol represents a sense of simplicity and balance. It reminds us to be conscious of where we are and the endless possibilities we have before us.
This powerful symbol is a great reminder of our connection to ourselves and the universe. It represents the never-ending cycle of life and the power of unifying together as one.
The Name iEvolve
We all equal no one is better or more than. Hence a small “i” and we all have a choice to continue to develop, grow and make positive changes. I value people who are aware and accept the need to take action and evolve.
We call this the 3 A’s – Awareness, Acceptance and Action.
The ingredients in the action lie in the HOW = Honesty, Openness and Willingness.
This process takes us to a beautiful place of discovery.
