Roane and Eva Hunter
Founders, Lifeworks Counseling
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 guests are Roane and Eva Hunter. They are Marriage and Family Counselors specializing in individual, couples, and family therapy based in Madison, MS. Their private practice is called Lifeworks Counseling and they have offices in 4 locations throughout Mississippi.
- Roane takes us through his past struggles with pornography and sexual addiction and how it impacted his marriage and career
- What Eva felt was missing from her own therapy and how Lifeworks improves upon those limitations
- Why Roane feels that adding an outdoor component is especially beneficial for men’s coaching
- A discussion of the process used at Lifeworks to help clients contend with issues around sexual addiction and infidelity
“Having this process, a very deliberate, intentional, task-oriented, directive process, when we can tell them that if you can trust this process, while we certainly can’t guarantee that you’ll get through it or they may choose to end the marriage, but if they trust the process, chances are things are going to get better and turn around. […] So much of counseling is feeling-oriented and it’s not always directive, but what we discovered is that when you are in severe crisis, having a very deliberate plan of action […] gives you a way to focus and put one foot in front of the other.”
