In this episode, Dr. David Hanscom continues his discussion with Becky Curtis, founder and CEO of the pain management coaching company, Take Courage Coaching. She talks about the techniques her coaches use in working with patients to help them heal, and the importance of building trust and motivation in helping them make forward progress. She emphasizes the key lesson she learned in dealing with her own chronic pain - what you focus on, you empower.
After a car accident left her with severe chronic pain, Becky Curtis went through a pain clinic where she learned pain was an experience she could improve. During her treatment, she recognized a piece that was missing for most people in pain: ongoing support and learning how to personally manage pain. She developed the program—Take Courage Coaching™ to help people in pain achieve the skills she used. Today, her company, through its network of pain management coaches, partners with clients in 46 states to achieve their chosen goals. Her practitioners use a bio-psycho-social perspective, viewing each person as intrinsically whole and the ultimate expert in the healing journey.
