What is Coaching?
- ICF (International Coaching Federation) defines Coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
- Traditionally, a cancer coach is an individual who has experienced cancer and provides support to cancer patients through their journey in seeking support and advice in formulating a healing plan. In recent years, cancer coaching has taken an expanded view. Life or health coaches offering cancer coaching take on a broader opportunistic landscape for the clients to reach for the desired outcome. According to Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), cancer coaching looks at the mind-body connection and its importance to the healing process integrating wellness mentally and physically. The increased need for an enhanced quality of life enables holistic coaching to fill this integrated role for the clients.
