The International Coach Federation defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential”. Coming from a strength base and client centered perspective, coaching honors the individual in recovery/family member as the expert in his/her own life and believes that every individual is creative, resourceful, whole and fundamentally brilliant about their own lives. Coaching addresses the entire person, challenging them to expand their definition of recovery while focusing on the “gap” between the quality and scope of their recovery today and where they would like their recovery to be tomorrow.
