Cerebral offers access to multiple types of clinicians so you can cater your treatment plan to your needs. You can think of coaching as a more intensive form of care counseling that involves introducing tools, strategies, and education aimed at supporting your personal development.
Cerebral coaches provide clients with a goal-focused, skill-building approach to tackle any number of personal and professional issues that may be causing distress. You can schedule coaching sessions on a weekly basis, and each session is 30 minutes in length. They can also be reached via the messaging portal within your account.
Please note that coaches are not therapists. They work alongside prescribers under our Medication + Coaching Plan, or independently as part of our Coaching plan. They do not diagnose or treat mental illness, but they can work with you on developing lifestyle goals.
What techniques do Cerebral coaches use? What credentials do they have?
Cerebral coaches implement a wide variety of evidence-based behavioral tools and interventions to assist in the personal development of their clients. This typically includes holding space for clients, practicing radical acceptance, providing psychoeducation, goal-development, active listening, motivating, and providing instruction and challenges to help clients create and maintain routines to achieve their goals.
The vast majority of Cerebral coaches have a Master’s degree in Social Work, Psychology, or Counseling. Additionally, all coaches undergo extensive professional development training to remain up-to-date on the latest research and best practices used in the mental health care industry.
