Who is a typical client of Echmoun Management?
Echmoun Management's mission is to assist its clients in their human development effort, by using the appropriate approach and modality. Although we are often referred by existing clients, whose satisfaction level is high, the most important step is the initial personal interview where both parties can evaluate the degree of compatibility between the Personal Growth Catalyst and the prospective client. It is generally the case that a person who is willing to question him/herself, who is open to change, and who recognizes that development involves a certain degree of resilience (not coming for a "miracle cure") will greatly benefit from Echmoun Management's services.
Who is ECHMOUN?
ECHMOUN is the Phoenician god of healing. Associated with the Greek Aesculapius, this figure is mostly known through the Echmoun temple situated near the Lebanese southern city of Sidon. In any journey of self-growth, there is an indispensable first step of self-understanding and healing, and the archetype of Echmoun conveys superbly the role of the Catalyst that will help on this path of discovery and healing.
What is the difference between Coaching and Therapy?
Coaching is generally a goal-based engagement, whereby the client decides up-front the goals to be achieved with the help of a coach. It is usually limited in time, and the length of the engagement depends on the importance of the specific issues and goals. Therapy-based sessions are more open, in terms of time and subjects addressed. It is not unusual for the initial goal brought forth at the onset to evolve into a different one as the work unfolds and the therapeutic alliance develops. Therapy delves deeper into the psyche than coaching.
What is Gestalt-Therapy?
Gestalt-Therapy evolved in the mid 20th century as a form of psychotherapy versed in the here and now. It recognizes the fundamental importance of considering the organism as both mental and corporeal, and for our arising need-cycles to achieve a "natural" completion. It addresses the frustration resulting from those cycles not being completed (unachieved Gestalts). Tools developed by the founders of Gestalt-Therapy, such as the hot seat technique, have been borrowed by numerous modern-day techniques. In addition to individual therapy, Gestalt-Therapy is ideally suited for group work.
What is a Holistic approach to self-growth?
Holistic Personal Development involves considering the self in all its dimensions, i.e. the Mind, the Body and the Heart. Developing one and disregarding the others results in an imbalanced self, whereas a holistic view favors a three-pronged approach.
