Positive Psychology Coaching Empowers Clients
People aren’t always aware of their strengths and how to use them to make positive changes in their lives.
Jane Silverman, a certified life coach in Positive Psychology, has moved her practice from Mount Kisco to Bedford Hills, at 66 Main Street. The new location is set to open February 1.
Silverman, who has been in the field of psychology and counseling for 25 years, says Positive Psychology coaching is a unique, cutting-edge, empowering practice backed by hard research. It views each client holistically, using the acronym SPIRE: Spiritual life, Physical state, Intellectual satisfaction, Relationships and Emotional life.
“Coaching in Positive Psychology focuses on what works,” she says. “We identify the clients’ strengths, empowering them as they gain insight into their strengths and understand how those strengths have served them in the past and can help them in the present and the future. People aren’t always aware of their strengths and how to use them to make positive changes in their lives.” The Positive Psychology coach also gives clients research-based tools for navigating their lives.
This approach has some commonalities with other coaching practices, particularly a felt sense of being cared for, Silverman says. “Every client needs to feel cared for and feel compassion,” she notes. “That’s essential for a coaching relationship.”
Silverman works with clients in person, by phone or on Skype. She offers a free initial consultation. She can be reached at 914.263.7080 or JaneSilverman25@gmail.com. For more info, visit JaneSilvermanLifeCoach.com.
