Jayson’s Coaching Style
“After being trained in Family Systems Theory, I take the approach of assessing the client’s whole life—body, soul & spirit according to I Thessalonians 5:23—including present beliefs, behaviors, and circumstances as well as past history, trauma and family-of-origin background. After the assessment phase, I help you as my coaching client understand the roots of your struggle and present a clear, concrete treatment plan recommendation that’s as custom-tailored to your particular circumstances as possible. I focus on listening, asking questions that invoke your own sense of direction, and giving challenging, direct yet gentle and respectful feedback as you take steps to change course. Prayer during sessions is available and encouraged according to your preference.” – Jayson Graves, M.MFT
