Praise for From Therapist to Coach
"This book is very practical and helpful to the therapist whowants to make a change and feels a bit overwhelmed with thepossibilities. The section on choosing a niche was illuminating andvery exciting to me. I found it helpful to have the trainingoptions outlined so clearly, and the marketing section wasextremely useful as well."--Shelley R. Cohen, LCSW, BeverlyHills, CA
"This book has sparked a renewed passion for my work as I havestruggled the past couple of years with how to incorporate coachinginto my psychotherapy practice. I knew there must be a way to do itbut lacked the 'how to.' Based on his years of experience and realinsight, David Steele supplies the necessary tools to do soeffectively as well as invaluable strategies to help avoid thepitfalls. Without hesitation, I highly recommend this as a bookthat you will return to time and time again as a handbook for yourprivate practice as a therapist/coach."--Sharon O'Farrell,MIHA, Navan, Ireland
