Rescuer syndrome and the coaches desire to help

The desire to help others is a great quality, but what if this desire goes too far?

What if this desire to help becomes a need?

This is when helping becomes a compulsion and turns into rescuing. This is the rescuer syndrome.

Read this neat article by Ian Day that identifies this desire to rescue others, especially when coaching.

I also work with the Karpman Drama Triangle that brings the Rescuer, Victim and Persecutor into play!

Do contact me if you would like to discuss this model and any dilemmas in your work.
