You wouldn't face a physical challenge without being physically fit
Why would you face your daily mental and emotional challenges without being mentally fit?
If you’re an overworked professional, mental fitness coaching can help you find more purpose and balance in your life.
Meet Dr. Gideon Strich
Your Mental Fitness Coach
I’m Dr. Gideon Strich. I am a board-certified physician and coach. I use my own experience recovering from burnout to help other overworked professionals find more meaning, purpose and balance in their lives.
Coaching is not therapy or mentoring. The coach is trained to listen deeply and ask powerful questions that allow you to help yourself by solving your own challenges in a way that’s right for you. Coaching sessions are entirely confidential and are not subject to reporting requirements.
As a physician and coach, I use only evidence-based techniques that guarantee that my clients can find the optimal solutions for their problems. That’s why I’m pleased to introduce Positive Intelligence© into my coaching practice.
My clients always gain insights and clarity on their personal and professional lives, but after they stop coaching they sometimes slip back into old unproductive habits. But the Positive Intelligence© practice and app, combined with individualized coaching, allows you to maintain your positive gains for the long term and to make lasting changes in your life.
