“Referring a Client to Therapy”
As a coach, when and how do you refer a client to therapy? At ICF, we conducted research to help coaches understand when and how to refer a client to a mental health professional. From that research, we created a reference sheet and a set of guidelines for coaches to help them be more confident and prepared in these situations. This guide is a resource for coaches to understand when and how to refer a client to a mental health professional. The goal is to help coaches recognize and know how to manage a client who shows up with a mental health issue that goes outside the scope of coaching. This is a valuable tool for our members. We encourage Chapter Leaders to read and share within each Chapter.
