Coaching in Pain Management
Pain Management Coaches (PMC) partner with pain patients seeking self-directed, lasting changes which promote health, enhance well-being and reduce the negative impact of pain on one’s life. In the course of their work, PMCs provide unconditional positive regard for their patients and a belief in their capacity for change, and honoring that each client is an expert on his or her life, while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.

Coaching as a Management Tool for Pain
Pain management coaching is designed to help clients thrive in spite of physical and emotional challenges. Whether it’s to stop something that may be harmful or start something for improvement, being coached offers a stimulus that is often impossible to acquire by oneself. Because individuals get stuck in unhealthy ways of thinking and doing, a coach provides support that eventually improves motivation.
The Paradigm Shift
Pain management coaching allows a person to move from a passive “Cure me” mentality to realizing that there are active things they can do to manage their experience of pain. The coaching approach is characterized by:
- Long-term approach
- Walking clients through the challenges of changing the way they think about pain
- Making everyday choices to reduce pain and the perception of pain
- Learning-through-doing approach
- Facilitated bycoaches who understand the nature of pain and patient mindsets that contribute to failure and hopelessness.
