The rapidly changing world we live in continues to put forward new and difficult challenges for today’s youth. Adults themselves struggle to weather these changes. For children, who are still developing the basic skills and capabilities required to navigate life, emergent challenges often present insurmountable obstacles to healthy development. As studies indicate ever rising rates of anxiety and depression, along with a host of other mental illnesses, the critical need for meaningful solutions grows.
The team of medical professionals at Medistic Center has risen to the challenge. Their multidisciplinary approach towards treatment and recovery offers a variety of methods and specialties that cater to the individual wellness needs of patients. Included in the team’s available treatment options, Malak Aburaya’s kids life coaching and Zeina Al Zein’s adult life coaching constitute essential features of their program.
Life coaching differs from traditional psychotherapy in a number of fundamental ways. Where a therapist may examine a patient’s history, delving into the past to help them recover from trauma, a life coach focuses foremost on solutions that can be applied in the present and future. Therapists conduct evaluations to assess developmental delays and disorders while life coaches teach their patients the tools and skills they need to move forward.
Malak works closely with children between the ages of six and fourteen. She specializes in guiding her patients as they learn healthy strategies to manage the stresses present in their lives. The children she consults often need support navigating academic pressure, peer pressure, bullying, and mental health strain perpetuated by social media.
Patients and their families come to Malak when they see dramatic shifts in self confidence, but don’t necessarily understand what they can do to help. Children may seek to develop a stronger sense of responsibility at home or at school. They often wish to overcome external pressures from peers and their environment, but require professional guidance in doing so. Through educating and training children on effective management tools, Malak assists her patients in overcoming the thought and behavior patterns that hold them back, while instilling in them the critical knowledge they need to navigate life’s many challenges.
Life coaching extends beyond the traditional parenting roles of moral and character development. Parents can sometimes feel that seeking professional help for their children renders their own parenting ineffective. To the contrary, the team at Medistic Center understands that parents who invest in such care are engaged, caring, and taking the appropriate steps towards enabling their children to realize their full potential.
In tandem with Malak’s practice, Zeina Al Zein works to provide similar assistance to adults struggling with hardship in their own lives. She understands well the relationship between physical and mental health. Following an understanding that physical pain often stems from mental strain, Zeina works to treat the bodies and minds of her patients through a variety of practices and techniques.
People come to Zeina seeking help with their relationships, careers, and parenting. In her sessions, she delves into the personal obstacles that obstruct their flourishing in these roles. She works closely with her patients to help them understand the causes of their concerns in addition to healthy practices for mediating them. These practices may include breathing exercises, diet monitoring, or mindfulness routines. She tailors her approach according to the specific needs of each patient. For Zeina, understanding how perspective, diet, and awareness convene to shape our lives allows her to target the source of individual problems, while simultaneously introducing meaningful solutions for tackling them.
Life coaching has been rendered especially important in Lebanon today as the country weathers unprecedented stresses that reflect on the nation’s populace. Economic hardship, the separation of families and friends, and ever shifting circumstances present unique challenges that Malak and Zeina work to mediate through their practice.
With empathy, patience, and an objective perspective, Malak, Zeina, and the team at Medistic Center cooperate to build patients into strong, healthy individuals capable of coping with a rapidly changing world while working to realize their respective goals.
