My name is Angela, and I have been studying recovery coaching this past year, having resigned from my career in accounting. Although I have no history of drug addiction, I can attest to its powerful healing. It’s non-judgmental, compassionate approach has helped me become more confident. It has helped me to hold my own when confronted with people or a difficult situation, and it has given me an abundance of self-worth. These were always my most difficult challenges to overcome.
Recovery coaching will not take you to a place emotionally or mentally that you are not ready to go, and will not force you to experience something you are not ready to re-experience. You remain the driver of your own healing journey, which is all-empowering and extremely fulfilling. I do believe that all human pain is the same, although the way we choose to express it and our ability to deal with it is different. You don’t need to have an addiction history to gain a greater measure of wholeness with recovery coaching.
“Learning to be a recovery coach is a life transforming event for most of our students because, they are able to become a functional member of society. Many addicts and alcoholics relapse because they are not in contact with their addiction on a daily basis. By becoming a recovery coach and coaching other addicts they are able to earn a living and stay clean.” Says David Collins the founder of U-ACT.
