Coach Good Buddy (TM). Hello, I am the coach, and my name is Michael Morris. I am glad you landed on my site ... I am happy to lay out my qualifications and experience. Most were hard earned, but some were more fun than work.
Please read on ...
I am a Certified Coach in my "Coach Good Buddy" role. I also hold a Master's Degree in Social Work (M.S.W.), and I am a practiced, licensed independent social worker (L.I.S.W.). Described by lots of clients as a naturally caring and empathetic person, I also seem to push enough to help people with challenges and achieve goals. I take a soft approach, with a dose of "firm", in my Coaching role.
I am trained to help you with your dreams and happiness. I have made sure that I am good at focusing on things that really hold you back in life and also things that really MATTER to you.
My Coach Good Buddy techniques are informed and enhanced by my experience and involvement for over 20 years in psychotherapy with adults/couples/adolescents, life coaching, dating coaching, wellness coaching, photograpy, acting and marketing. So, KNOW that I bring a lot to the table for you!
As a Master of Social Work (M.S.W.), I have extensively studied our culture(s), the family, and the individual in relation to each other. This allows me to see things "as a whole", and often think systematically to find solutions for YOU.
My journey has been distilled to deliver an awesome coaching experience. It is a potent mix, but I like it to be fun, too. That's why my image is good ole' Coach Good Buddy (TM), with cartoons and not taking things too seriously. However, my mind and energies are disciplined and synergized to get you to where you want to be.
I don't think anyone should be alone and stuck in this life.
A good buddy knows you and edges you to do right for YOU ... a buddy knows what you need , almost as if "magically".
So, never give up ... you always have another move to make in life, and the goal is often just two steps ahead of where we decide to quit. The key to anything is research and more research. I work hard for you, wracking my brain, so YOU can choose from our viable, brainstormed plans. Then baby steps - for assured success. And, my pep talks will push you forward, and help to topple the challenges that hamper you.
Coaching skills and techniques will move you from problem identification to final resolution. This process includes connecting with values and strengths, INNATE to you ... Forming a clear vision, then creating and making action steps happen!
With the support and accountability of my friendly/firm approach you will step toward the wellness, peace and happiness you've always wanted ... Sincerely, Coach Good Buddy.
