What are the Pros
and Cons of Phone Sessions?
By Dianne Ruth, CCH, PhD
A busy person might find
Anxiety Care Coaching
and Holistic or Alternative Counseling by phone, also called TeleCoaching
and TeleCounseling, to be a real timesaver. They can simply close their
office door and pick up the phone, or lounge in their backyard.
Or in the
case of a stay-at-home mom or dad, this way of working often doesn't even call
for a babysitter.
There's no traffic or parking to deal with, or bad
weather either. Your
Life Coaching and Alternative Counseling sessions can even continue when you are away
Ninety percent of all coaching is done by phone, and Life
Coaching and Alternative Counseling by
phone is quickly becoming a preferred method.
A couple of reasons for this are because many people live
or work at a distance from the Life Coach and Alternative Counselor. For example, they live in another city, state, or country. This
way, they get their choice of a professional , no matter where they might be
Another factor is that many people lead
extremely busy lives, and getting help by phone adds convenience to this very
powerful personalized service.
For most clients, phone sessions work
great. Some clients find that because the phone is more anonymous, it
easier to disclose more than they would in person.
TeleCoaching and TeleCounseling is effective and convenient, and requires very little
effort. Results are often surprising and dramatic when you have someone to
talk to who really hears you.
In contrast, some clients feel more
comfortable meeting with their Life Coach and Alternative Counselor in person.
They may find the openness of one-on-one sessions creates a more favorable
environment for sharing their life dreams and struggles. Because of this,
Judie Keys, CCH, offers in-person sessions in her San Diego office.
Another option with Judie Keys--when feasible--is to meet for a while in person,
then try TeleCoaching and TeleCounseling to see how surprisingly well it might work for you... or alternate between the two choices.
