Emotion Coach

Have you heard of an emotion coach?

Working with youth can often involve being an “emotion coach”. This is defined by Greenberg (2002) as guiding clients to greater awareness and acceptance of their true feelings, helps them access their primary feelings, encourages them to listen to healthy feelings, and facilitates the transformation of less healthy ones.
