Encountering Trauma in Coaching

As coaches, it’s important that we are clear on the level of care we are able to provide and when we need to refer a client to another mental health professional.

In this conversation with trauma professional David Treleaven we explore the ubiquity of trauma, encountering trauma in a coaching session, resilience practices, dysregulation and nuance and working with the “window of tolerance”.
