The Journey to Recovery with Centacare Coaching


  10 November, 2020  ·    Irene White

The team at Centacare Mental Health and Wellbeing Coaching are always proud to watch clients as they progress through their recovery journey. One particular client has allowed us to share his journey.

Peter (name changed for privacy) had approached Centacare Coaching, after his previous marriage had broken down due to his addictions. He attended rehab as the inaugural point for recovery and through this process, was referred to Centacare at 10 Thomas Street in North Cairns, where his Coach provided him with the knowledge, tools and understanding, encouraging acceptance and growth in his recovery.

Peter has accessed Centacare Mental Health and Wellbeing Recovery Coaching for almost a year. By partaking in the 12 week coaching plan and 7 session cycle Anger Management sessions, along-side other valuable services, Peter acknowledges that Centacare has significantly contributed to his recovery through a holistic, goal orientated practice.

Although Peter found the restrictive practices throughout the COVID-19 pandemic quite challenging, he continued to contribute throughout the sessions, finding the resources available at Centacare beneficial for his development. Peter strongly believes that by applying these recovery principles to his life and relationships that he has created positive outcomes that he wishes to continue as he moves forward in his recovery.

In October 2020, Peter completed Anger Management and our 12 week coaching program. Using K5; an emotional self-evaluation tool, Peter started with a score of 10 and on his last K5 self-assessment he scored a 5. Peter told his Coach how grateful he is to find the gift of recovery. 
By embracing the process, Peter is now in line to achieve his goal of being able to give back to others through Peer Support and has recently become a volunteer at Centacare and is about to commence studying Mental Health.
