Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

Coaching is commonly defined as a process to help improve a person's performance. It is a self-directed process that helps a person change in the way they wish to change. Coaching builds awareness, empowers choice, and leads to change.
Healthy Gamer Coaching is a process to help you better understand how your mind works and provide a path forward, so you can build a life that helps you achieve your goals.
*This program is not meant to diagnose mental illness, prescribe medication, or be used for urgent health crisis. Coaching is not therapy nor a substitute for therapy, and coaches are not therapists.*


What happens in Healthy Gamer Creator Coaching?

You will meet with a Healthy Gamer coach weekly for 1-on-1 sessions (50 minutes) where they will ask questions, dig into the emotions behind your behavior, provide more context about how external/internal factors affect your mindset, discover links about how external/internal factors affect your mindset, and provide support towards reaching your goals.


What should I expect to gain from Healthy Gamer Creator Coaching?

While every coaching experience varies, over the course of 8 weeks, the vast majority of creators experience: an increased sense of self-awareness, ability to set boundaries, ability to create work that is personally fulfilling, increased self-esteem, manage stress from social media/streaming, healthier personal and professional relationships, resiliency from criticism, ability to anticipate and manage burnout.

How much does coaching cost?

If you would like to continue beyond the complimentary 8 weeks, you will be offered a heavily discounted rate negotiated by Twitch. If you have any questions, please reach out to Hannah at HannahHG#0376 on Discord or [email protected]

How is coaching different from therapy?

While both coaching and therapy use evidence-based techniques and intentional dialogue, there are important differences. Coaching is focused on "building" through planning, introspection, and awareness, while therapy is more about "fixing" something through clinical diagnoses, medication, and/or treatment. Coaching helps prioritize, set goals, and understand the root of discontent or unhappiness. Therapy is intended to alleviate clinical issues such as anxiety, depression, or trauma. You can learn more about that here

How do I know if creator coaching is right for me as opposed to therapy?

If you're looking to address your feelings of burnout, imposter syndrome, social media use, or hyperfocus on analytics, then Healthy Gamer Creator Coaching is what you are looking for. Coaching also can entail non-creator-related issues such as feeling stuck in life, improving social relationships, and developing healthier habits. As a result, creators often experience reductions in depression and anxiety.
Coaches are not Therapists. Therapists are more appropriate for dealing with specific instances of trauma, depression, or anxiety. Therapists have no required training in streamer burnout, imposter syndrome, streamer life cycle, managing social media, or how to deal with toxic people on the internet.

Who is eligible for the creator coaching program?

At this time, Creator Coaching is available for all Twitch Partners and Twitch Ambassadors on a first-come, first-serve basis. A wait-list is available, but joining the wait-list does not guarantee access to the program.
We recommend signing up immediately if you are interested to secure a spot in this program.

Why do creators need coaches?

Creator Coaching is focused on the unique stressors of being a creator. Creator Coaching educates you on how issues of burnout, imposter syndrome, social media toxicity, cancel culture and analytics obsession impacts you - so that we can work through it. Oftentimes these issues are intertwined with feelings of self-worth, discontent, and/or fear of failure. At Healthy Gamer, we want to help you overcome obstacles that get in the way of your goals and build the life you want to live.

How are coaches trained?

Healthy Gamer Coaches are trained and certified through Dr. Alok Kanojia’s 10-week curriculum: 2 weeks of didactic teaching from Dr. Kanojia, and 2 months of hands-on group and personal coaching experience. Once coaches have proven they can effectively work with clients and reduce feelings of depression and anxiety while increasing a sense of life purpose, they are selected as official Healthy Gamer Coaches. The Healthy Gamer Coach certification program combines multiple perspectives on mental health and wellness to give coaches effective, evidence-based techniques to support your mental health. Creator Coaches are chosen based on client feedback and personal track records of improving client outcomes.

Can I get a coach that matches my demographics?

Healthy Gamer is an equal opportunity employer with a diverse network of coaches. We will do our best to accommodate special requests while ensuring a fair workplace.

What if I don’t like my Coach or Coaching in general?

If you don't have a great session, we strongly encourage you to bring it up with your Coach and troubleshoot together. If you are uncomfortable bringing it up with your coach and would like to change coaches, please bring your request directly to HannahHG#0376 and we will find another coach that fits your availability. You can also cancel your plan anytime - no hard feelings. Just contact Hannah at HannahHG#0376 on Discord or [email protected]
