Clients cannot be in active suicidal ideation and must have a foundation of safety before coaching can begin.You can read about the differences between trauma coaching and therapy here.

Am I Ready for Complex Trauma Coaching?
- Tolerance for discomfort – Are you proactive in embracing new ways of perceiving and acting? Are you able to endure periods of discomfort to realise the rewards of taking new and different approaches?
- Flexibility to experimentation – Trying something new means taking risks, and experiments with new behaviours may not work the first time. Are you willing to try out new ideas and actions, fail, learn, and try again? We don't believe in a one size fits all approach to cptsd recovery.
- Ability to look beyond the rational – Behaviour is not rational — it’s driven by emotions like fear, anger, and pride. Are you ready to gain a deeper understanding of your own behaviours and relationships by exploring their emotional dimensions?
- Willingness to take responsibility – It’s hard to change if you don’t believe you have the power to shape your future. Blaming the organization, the boss, too many responsibilities, and so on will block you from growth. Are you ready to hold yourself accountable for making progress?
- Capacity for Letting go – The willingness to be willing to be willing to make peace with the past and channel your energy into progress is essential to move forward into the life we choose to create.
- Ability to ask for support – You are accountable for change, but you will develop faster when you connect with other people. Are you ready to begin thinking about developing a new support network around you?
- Self-discipline – Learning how to discipline yourself to say no and to focus on what’s important are essential parts of becoming healthy. Even if those around you are upset at you no longer being available 24/7. Are you ready to remain focused on your recovery goals?

What issues or challenges do you not work with?
• Court-Mandated Therapy
• Crisis Response/24-Hour Services; and
• People who actively have suicidal and homicidal intents and plans.
I also would not be a good fit if you need a higher level of care such as a:
• A partial Hospitalization Program: A therapeutic program with a level of care that’s set at a minimum of five hours a day, five days a week for a duration of two weeks to a whole month.
• An Intensive Outpatient Program: A therapeutic program with a level of care set at a minimum of three hours a day, three days a week for a duration of up to two months.
Both of these types of treatments are for individuals who need to see a clinician and medical provider more than once a week for their mental health, physical health, and substance use issues (e.g., addiction, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, self-harm) and find these issues severely impact their ability to function on a day-to-day basis such that work needs to be put on hold for a period of time.
