Club Member Dr. Nasrin Khan presented an online Seminar on Emotional Resilience - in the second online seminar organized by our Club.  At the outset of the hour-long seminar, also simultaneously available via our Facebook Page, Dr. Khan was introduced by Club President S. Zaki Hossain.  Dr. Khan is a Medical Specialist at Creedmore Psychiatric Center and completed her residency. at Brookdale University Hospital in Internal Medicine. Dr. Khan has long experience in Mental Health and rehabilitation, conflicts in personal relationships, and management of professional challenges. 
 
Dr. Khan began by sharing a PowerPoint presentation and afterward responded to viewers' questions. She says she is a life coach and describes coaching as bringing "awareness in people especially in people of our culture. There is a misconception among people that life coach is for people with mental illness but not really. Life coach actually works with everyone. The coach is not the therapist, but is just a person who will make the relationship with the client and will make her or him comfortable to explore the strategies to reach his or her goal"
 
Dr. Khan emphasizes that "goals can be different for different clients. Someone might want to improve their health, someone their business, while others might want to improve their relationship either with romantic partners or with children or other relatives and friends. A major part of coaching is active listening. Coaches are trained to listen, observe and customize their approach to individual client needs. Life coaching is a powerful human relationship in which trained coaches assist people to design their future rather than get over their past."  Through a typically long-term relationship, Dr. Khan says, "coaches aid clients in creating visions and goals for all aspects of their lives as well as multiple strategies to support achieving those goals. Coaches recognize the brilliance of each client and their personal power to discover their own solutions when provided with support, accountability, and unconditional positive regard".   According to Dr. Khan, there are different phases of coaching. That’s why it is a long-term course. The first and most important part of coaching is listening.  Active listening means the client has to feel heard.
 
Dr. Khan made it clear that coaching is not therapy so it’s not for mental patients. In fact, she says, "We all need to have a coach in different aspects of life".  She saiys people should not feel embarrassed to reach out to her. She can assist people in reaching their goals and have peace and happiness in life which they are dreaming of their whole lives   Here is how to contact her:  nasrincoaching@gmail.com   Read a recent article she wrote in WBH Journal
