Praise for From Therapist to Coach "This book is very practical and helpful to the therapist who wants to make a change and feels a bit overwhelmed with the possibilities. The section on choosing a niche was illuminating and very exciting to me. I found it helpful to have the training options outlined so clearly, and the marketing section was extremely useful as well." —Shelley R. Cohen, LCSW, Beverly Hills, CA "This book has sparked a renewed passion for my work as I have struggled the past couple of years with how to incorporate coaching into my psychotherapy practice. I knew there must be a way to do it but lacked the 'how to.' Based on his years of experience and real insight, David Steele supplies the necessary tools to do so effectively as well as invaluable strategies to help avoid the pitfalls. Without hesitation, I highly recommend this as a book that you will return to time and time again as a handbook for your private practice as a therapist/coach." —Sharon O'Farrell, MIHA, Navan, Ireland A hands-on guide to helping therapists make the transition to a successful coaching practice Written for therapists by a therapist, From Therapist to Coach provides a convenient road map for professionals considering expanding or transitioning their practice to coaching.

In his decades as a psychotherapist and creativity coach, Eric Maisel has found a common thread behind what often gets labeled ?writer's block,” ?procrastination,” or ?stage fright.” It's the particular anxiety that, paradoxically, keeps creators from doing, completing, or sharing the work they are driven toward. This ?creative anxiety” can take the form of avoiding the work, declaring it not good enough, or failing to market it ? and it can cripple creators for decades, even lifetimes. But Maisel has learned what sets successful creators apart. He shares these strategies here, including artist-specific stress management; how to work despite bruised egos, day jobs, and other inevitable frustrations; and what not to do to deal with anxiety. Implementing these 24 lessons replaces the pain of not creating with the profound rewards of free artistic self-expression. * Practical insights and proven techniques for overcoming the challenges and fears that plague creators of every kind * Teaching tales that convey effective approaches to creating fearlessly and abundantly
