Praise for From Therapist to Coach "This book is very practical and helpful to the therapist who wants to make a change and feels a bit overwhelmed with the possibilities. The section on choosing a niche was illuminating and very exciting to me. I found it helpful to have the training options outlined so clearly, and the marketing section was extremely useful as well." —Shelley R. Cohen, LCSW, Beverly Hills, CA "This book has sparked a renewed passion for my work as I have struggled the past couple of years with how to incorporate coaching into my psychotherapy practice. I knew there must be a way to do it but lacked the 'how to.' Based on his years of experience and real insight, David Steele supplies the necessary tools to do so effectively as well as invaluable strategies to help avoid the pitfalls. Without hesitation, I highly recommend this as a book that you will return to time and time again as a handbook for your private practice as a therapist/coach." —Sharon O'Farrell, MIHA, Navan, Ireland A hands-on guide to helping therapists make the transition to a successful coaching practice Written for therapists by a therapist, From Therapist to Coach provides a convenient road map for professionals considering expanding or transitioning their practice to coaching.
