How does coaching help with stress and mental health?
In this episode we discuss how do you deal with stress and mental health in coaching and where does coaching stop and counselling start? We explore how boundaries can be helpful in managing our stress levels and we share a great quote from Brené Brown: “Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves even if we risk upsetting others.”

Gregor talks about the evolution of shadow and the different stages we go through. We’ve filmed a short YouTube on a key coaching question that helps with one of the most important stages here.
