Is Social Skills Coaching Therapy?
Social skills coaching can be beneficial to therapy, such as exercise and self-care, but it is NOT meant to replace consultation or treatment provided by a certified Speech Therapist, Physiologist, Psychiatry or Therapist. It can’t treat mental health issues such as depression.
While a single session is valuable and leads to identifying barriers of a specific skill to communicate better in social interactions, the real benefit of working with a coach is experienced through an ongoing relationship aimed at achieving your goals, from start to finish by creating long-term positive support.
