Coaching is Not Psychotherapy. Although Judy Wyatt is a licensed family therapist she does not engage in psychotherapy by e-mail or phone. Psychotherapy is only possible in a face-to-face context which may be augmented by phone contact. Our Personal Coaching does not involve psychotherapy unless Coaching is in person (face-to-face) and we have an understanding with you that Coaching is to include psychotherapy with Judy. Chauncey is an organization consultant with an MSOD degree; he is no longer a licensed therapist having retired after twenty years as a therapist.
Personal coaching can be in person, or by phone anywhere in the U.S. or Canada for people who are not in the San Francisco area. Judy Wyatt handles Personal Coaching in person or on the phone; she does not communicate by e-mail. Chauncey Hare answers all e-mail requests. We have found that Coaching by e-mail does not work as well as phone coaching because of the complexity of most work problems. There is often a risk of misunderstandings when communicating about complex work issues by e-mail. By telephone, with Judy Wyatt, Personal Coaching has proven to be very successful.
Call us at 415-399-1856 to talk with Judy Wyatt about "Personal Coaching" -- so that she can help you deal with a current or past work problem or abuse. Don't hesitate to call. The longer you wait, the more difficult it becomes to solve an ongoing problem.
If you are looking for a support group we recommend Nineveh and Bullyonline. Each of these support groups are located by going to FACEBOOK, GOOGLE or YAHOO then joining and then searching for these two groups which are both open to new members.
If you have new information relating to work abuse, we are interested in receiving it for inclusion in this Web site. We also respond to a modest number of questions by researchers, including those who are associated with academic institutions. Note that at times researchers ask us to send extensive e-mail explanations that tax our ability to respond with complete clarity.
We recommend that researchers read our book, Work Abuse: How to Recognize and Survive It, before asking for our e-mail reply concerning some aspect of abuse in the workplace.
Please bear in mind that we are not funded by anyone but ourselves (the government and foundations are not paying for our time---and we are not associated with a university that is paying us a salary).
