Today’s question from Mark is one of terminology. What do you call a person who helps others achieve new insights and accomplishments, using the power of journal-writing? Is it a Journal Coach? or a Journal Therapist?
We could have also discussed the role of Journal Facilitator (which I am currently studying at The Center for Journal Therapy) but let’s stick to Mark’s question!
Kim Ades, from Frame of Mind Coaching in Toronto, Canada, joins me to answer this intriguing distinction. You can learn more about Frame of Mind Coaching by taking this assessment, and receive a free consultation from a coach. Please let them know that you heard about them on JournalTalk!
Your turn to answer: Are you a Journal Coach or Journal Therapist? If so, how do you describe and distinguish your role? If not, with whom would you rather work, a journal coach or a journal therapist? Post your responses at the bottom of this webpage, in the comments section.
You may email your own journaling question to be featured on a future episode of JournalTalk. Or, pick up the telephone and leave a voicemail with your question at 1-805-751-6280 (only normal toll charges may apply). When your question is featured, we will send you a thank-you gift for sharing your voice! (JournalTalk Q&A, Episode #25, March 24, 2015)
