Founder, Inner Life Adventures
Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.
Today’s special guest is Chuck Hancock, a licensed professional counselor and the founder of Inner Life Adventures based in Fort Collins, Colorado. He is also the founder of his coaching practice called Reconnecting to our Nature.
- Why a corporate career left Chuck unfulfilled and led him to a career in nature-based counseling
- A discussion of Chuck’s therapy and coaching work and the challenges his clients face
- Background on how Chuck’s coaching practice came to be and how it differs from counseling
- The most rewarding and challenging aspects of Chuck’s career in service to his clients
“I used to beat myself up and say, “Gosh, if I were a better coach or a better therapist and I knew the right skill or the right intervention, then I would get them there.” But with over 10 years in the business now and with so many tools in my toolbox, there’s so much we can offer and it really is a process that sometimes can take time. We don’t always get to see the results of our efforts immediately. Sometimes it can take a little while for them to take effect, and that’s humbling.”
