What happens if I'm working with a Coach and really need a therapist or psychiatrist for medication?

If within the United States, you will be referred to an organization in the state in which you reside.  Outside of the United States you will be refered to organizations and general medical practices for a referral.  You can continue to work on your coaching goals while being seen by a therapist or psychiatrist, that is unless he/she objects.  While providing therapy, Sue has shared several patients with personal and business coaches.  She accepted some insurance for therapy and the coach charged a fee.
