What is a MetaCoach

A metacoach is a type of coach who specializes in teaching individuals how to coach themselves effectively. This approach is based on the principles of Neuro-Semantics, which is a field of study that focuses on how the brain processes and interprets information. A metacoach typically works with clients to help them develop self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and other skills that are necessary for effective self-coaching. They also facilitate clients for how to use specific techniques, such as reframing, to change their thought patterns and improve their overall well-being.
