The Banyan Group - Counseling, Coaching and Consulting for Positive Change is a Solution-Focused practice. What this means is that whether in Counseling therapy, professional Coaching or organizational and professional Consultation, it will always be the desired future condition that is squarely in view, never the problems of the past or the difficulty of the present. Solution-focused coaching brings an evidence-based therapeutic modality, proven to help people manage the change they want to make, to the non-therapy world of Professional and Executive Coaching and Consulting.
Solution-Focused Coaching, is a tool to help you get from where you are to where you want to be in life, career or relationships. Coaching is very popular in business and corporate settings around the world where an “executive coach” helps managers and other business leaders deal with change, develop new management styles, make wise decisions, become more effective in their position, cope with their hyperactive lifestyles, and deal with stress. In short, an executive coach works with people in business to help them move from where they are to a level at which they are more competent, fulfilled, and self-confident than they might otherwise have been.
Solution-Focused Coaching, though, is not limited to the client's career, education or business. Many people engage a Solution-Focused Coach simply to help them get past a difficult passage in life, to navigate a transition or make important decisions Coaches, as always, value confidentiality above all, honor the client's values and vision, and seek only to help you get where you want to go.

Positive Change: Sometimes those words seem like two opposites, strangely connected in a random phrase. For many people, change is not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of positive things. For many people, families and organizations change is not positive, because it brings discomfort, discord, dysfunction and division. We know it doesn’t have to be that way. And we instinctively believe there must be a way to manage change that brings us to a place of agreement, comfort and unity. But finding that way can be a daunting task.
The Banyan Group is a private, independently organized non-profit practice, dedicated to counseling, coaching and consulting, always with a view to managing change in such a way as to bring positive, helpful and hopeful results.
