Abstract

Coaching makes exciting claims about helping clients to realize their potential but the ‘unexciting' side of coaching is often tackling the same goal-blocking problems found in therapy. REBT can be used by coaches to extend and deepen their understanding of psychological issues such as procrastination which is the subject of this article. A definition of procrastination is offered along with views on what causes it and descriptions of six fundamental procrastination styles. A coaching case study is used to guide the reader through the ABCDE model of psychological disturbance and change as well as examining some of the pitfalls involved in tackling procrastination.
