Book Description

This book is a comprehensive guide for coaches on how to use rational-emotive and cognitive behaviour therapy to help coachees with their emotional problems within a coaching context. In this fully updated new edition, Windy Dryden:

  • discusses the eight major emotions that feature in coachees’ emotional problems and their healthy alternatives
  • outlines a step-by-step guide to the use of RECBT in the coaching context
  • illustrates these points with a case of a coachee whose progress towards a personal development objective was hampered by an emotional problem and how the coach implemented RECBT to help her deal with the obstacle and resume development-based coaching.

Dealing with Emotional Problems in Coaching will be a valuable resource for all those involved in coaching.
