WHAT ARE ONESTEP GUIDES?

WHAT ARE ONESTEP GUIDES?

OneStep Guides are carefully-vetted, experienced coaches, mentors, and consultants that work with individuals 1-on-1 to build lives with greater mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Guides focus on one of three areas: recovery coaching, building new mindsets and belief systems, or discovering purpose through creativity.

OneStep Guides are independent entrepreneurs or contractors that offer their services through our platform, and thus maintain personal responsibility for their work with clients and families.

WHO DO ONESTEP GUIDES WORK WITH?

Anyone who is: 

Wanting to build new, positive mindsets and belief systems in place of negative or toxic ones

Looking to discover greater purpose and passion in life 

In recovery and in need of practical support, regular encouragement, and greater flourishing in their careers, relationships, and other aspects of daily life

In recovery and facing difficulties with geographic transition, building community, or navigating family relationships

Looking for encouragement and guidance on how to navigate recovery from a substance use disorder for oneself or a loved      one; please note that this is a consulting service and does not constitute medical advice or diagnosis. Please see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment as needed.  

Please note: we work with individuals from a range of backgrounds and experiences. You do not need to be in recovery to work with a OneStep Guide. However, coaching only works when clients or participants are actively engaged in their own growth or recovery journey. Thus, clients need to be willing to engage in the process of healing and growth.

HOW DO I WORK WITH A ONESTEP GUIDE?

Sessions with OneStep Guides use online video-conferencing tools so that participants can access affordable support anywhere they are. Length and cost per session vary by coach and practice area. Guides serve as listeners, encouragers, outside observers, and use question-based approaches to help participants reflect, discover, and implement their own solutions. Guides may help participants identify weekly homework to put in practice the previous session’s discoveries, including a regular reflection survey to chart learning and growth.

ARE ONESTEP GUIDES COUNSELORS OR THERAPISTS?

ARE ONESTEP GUIDES COUNSELORS OR THERAPISTS?

OneStep Guides are not counselors or therapists. By serving as coaches, mentors or consultants, Guides empower individuals to make their own choices around their wellness journeys. In contrast, counselors and therapists make firm recommendations that clients must follow while addressing things that have happened in the past. As coaches, mentors, or consultants, OneStep Guides focus on helping clients and participants make practical plans and changes that move them forward in their unique journeys.

At OneStep Guides, we celebrate the range of services that individuals need to address substance use disorders and other mental health challenges.

OneStep Guides provide supportive services meant to complement the medical and mental health care resources that individuals are receiving through treatment, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and other professionals. 

Why does OneStep Guides talk about mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness? What do we mean by those terms? 

Why does OneStep Guides talk about mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness? What do we mean by those terms? 

We believe that every human being is looking for positive thoughts and feeling (mental and emotional health), and an understanding of themselves and their place in the world that brings life and growth (spiritual health). We celebrate the importance of unconditional love and grace in the healing journey. We aim to serve individuals with a range of backgrounds and worldviews, and thus invite participants to select the language and coach that resonates with the current stage of their journey. Many of our guides have been inspired and impacted by the teachings of Jesus in their own journey, and this platform has been founded by an individual whose life was transformed by a spiritual experience with Jesus. We also have a high regard for the medical and biological aspects of substance use disorders and other mental health challenges. Clients are actively encouraged to provide feedback on how Guides’ language can best support their personal growth journey. 

What makes OneStep Guides different from other providers of coaching and supportive services? 

What makes OneStep Guides different from other providers of coaching and supportive services? 

As a team, we bring unrelenting hope for individuals no matter their situation or experience. We truly believe that greater purpose ,connection, wellness, and joy can be discovered through the process of growth and healing, whether it involves recovery from a substance use disorder or other challenge. We believe in people, because we have seen the change that has come when others believed in us. This foundation comes from our own experiences of challenge, trauma, and brokenness, and the discoveries these opportunities provided. We bring authenticity and optimism to the work we do, because we believe that together we can build the world of which we dream, one person, one family, one community at a time. 

That sounds like a lot. Where does your optimism come from?

But the stories of hope and transformation inspire us to keep serving, keep working, keep loving.
