About George Boncoraglio
Hello, my name is George Boncoraglio,
I am a professional life coach and counselor. I have the following qualifications:
Life coaching certificate through SixStar Coaching
Educational Certificate through the University of Toronto
Diploma in Applied Psychology and Counseling with a specialization in Psychotherapy through Kelowna College
Bachelor of Arts degree in cultural and social anthropology through York University
Trust is by far the most important aspect of any counseling and/or coaching relationship. Research has demonstrated that, regardless of the approach taken, if there is no trust established between the counselor and/or coach, there will be no progression. So, due to the importance of trust, being a major foundation of the process, I do my best to foster a safe environment where trust is established and maintained.
Afterwards, a full assessment will be conducted in order to ascertain the specific issues, requirements and objectives that the client has that are important to the therapeutic relationship. These include but are not limited to the following:
Biological, economic, medical, social, emotional, familial, psychological, gender etc.
After this, a plan will be created in collaboration with the client to best achieve their therapeutic and/or coaching objectives. As with any plan, in order for it to be successful, the client must be held accountable. Responsibility is a key ingredient for success in all areas of life and coaching and counseling is no exception to this rule. Therefore, due to this, the client will be monitored on a continual basis.
Paradoxically, the good coach and/or counselor is in the business of putting themselves out of business. That is, it is the responsibility of the counselor/coach to enable the client to solve their own difficulties through professional guidance that will allow the client to implement these skills independently in their lives after therapy/coaching is finished. The main objective is for the client to be autonomous.
I welcome all who need assistance. I look forward to hearing from you.
