Compassionate Change Coaching
What is It?
Compassionate Change Coaching was developed by Dr. Cynthia Phelps and uses a combination of techniques to help help you make that difficult life change. It’s based on research in Self-Compassion, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavior Strategies, and the Neuroscience of Behavior Change.
Coaching is different from therapy in that it guides you to solve immediate problems, and stays focused on the present state of your life. Coaching is a highly practical process to get you the life you want. Compassionate Change Coaching helps you to improve your relationship with yourself, so you can reap all of the benefits of having high self-compassion, which includes better odds at behavior change.
What Can I Expect?
During the coaching process we will meet weekly and set goals to improve your recovery and your life. Each week we will assess our progress, talk about shifting priorities, solve problems, engage in an exercise to build self-compassion skills, and set homework and new goals for the next week.
Typically each coaching session will last an hour and you will be provided with a short summary of the session and a set of things to accomplish before the next session. Coaching can be done face-to-face if you are located in San Antonio, or over Skype or by phone.

Dr. Phelps completed the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) teacher training program in 2015 in Garrison NY.
MSC is a program created by Dr. Kristin Neff and is effective at raising people’s levels of Self-Compassion. Self Compassion is critical for behavior change, as research shows that people who are able to treat themselves kindly are more motivated to change, and better able to sustain long-term changes.
We will use MSC along with tried and true methods such as cognitive behavioral techniques to help you make that change you have been longing for.
