T1DE 2020 Spring Coaching Application
(aka t1de) is providing an opportunity for individuals, parents, and caregivers who are juggling the daily responsibilities and emotional strains that come with managing diabetes. Tide is partnering with a nationally recognized Gestalt Coaching program founded by Melisa Pearce
and is offering phone coaching to committed participants during Spring of 2020.
All of the coaches are beginning their 2nd year of advanced Gestalt Coach training, having already been certified in the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method. They are investing their time and expertise to the Tide community with the expectation that the participants will invest their time and energy in kind.
Participants will commit to weekly or every other week phone coaching sessions for a minimum of twelve (12) weeks with one of the program’s Gestalt coaches who are NOT health coaches
, but rather coaches versed in the life challenges and emotional strains that sometimes come with managing the "24-7" of diabetes.
Your coach will encourage you to look at your current life – the realities of your physical, mental, and emotional states. He or she will guide you in creating a clear vision and roadmap for your self-care. Your coach will help you recognize and appreciate the many parts of you that shape your everyday life, and will assist you in identifying how your positive choices gain momentum for change, if you so desire. Melisa explains that “the Gestalt methodology assists the client in examining their life and choices made with a focus on designing a positive future.” We at Tide believe that maintaining healthy self-care depends on our emotional well-being and our ability to manage stress.
