How to Coach Someone Through Extreme Stress

When it comes to managing stress, ITN founder Cynthia Garcia lives by the mantra “first you, then your client.”

As a coach, it’s important to speak to your clients from a place of deep understanding and experience.

Being authentic and sharing how you’ve been able to cope with life’s stressors can help you develop a deeper connection and level of trust with your clients.

But, being a coach (and a human being in general) can be stressful.

On today’s episode, Cynthia is sharing her top tips for how to thrive as a coach and help clients navigate times of extreme stress. 

One of the first steps in this process is to get really clear about what your role is as a coach.

Remember that you’re there to hold space, offer support, ask deeper questions, and keep your clients accountable for the action plans that you create together.

There’s no magical, one-size-fits all solution to stress management. Cynthia breaks down methods to get to the root cause of negative feelings, and offers suggestions for how to approach emotional, spiritual and physical solutions with your clients.
