The importance of assessing progress – Regression Therapy and Life Coaching at Wellness Space
How do we know whether coaching or therapy sessions are going well? There are multiple ways of assessing progress.
Assessment during the initial consultation:
First, consulting helps us understand the opportunity areas or broken areas in someone’s life. Along with this, we do several assessments such as WHO-5 Wellbeing, Anxiety levels, the extent of Adverse childhood experiences and so on. We assess Well Being so that we understand there is underlying stress. Stress is challenging to measure, so we start with the WHO Well-being index . We measure depression, and it correlates with a lower WHO-5 well-being score. So we have ways to identify if somebody is feeling depressed. Then we measure anxiety levels and finally sleep quality, and together we get an assessment of what can we do and work together.
During the progress of therapy and coaching sessions, we assess the same scores again and, of course, discuss with the individual to see and validate that we’re making progress. Figure 1 provides a summary of the progress measured after 8 sessions for several clients.

Additional insights for assessing progress:
Finally, the third and the most critical thing we assess is the changes in several emotions. If somebody says I have anger issues, we go back and say, is your anger there or has it changed, and they say it has changed. Hence, we assess if it has reduced in intensity, the frequency at which you get angry has changed and finally, how much time do you spend remaining in that anger or are you able to come back faster. So remember the incidence measure through frequency, the intensity, and the time during which you can come back from that episode of anger. Figure 2 highlights the elements we measure.

In short, we can successfully and consistently demonstrate outstanding using Regression Therapy & Life Coaching through consistent measurement and review of progress.
