DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THERAPY AND COACHING

Coaching drastically differs from psychotherapy in that coaching uses a step by step process to living the life you want. It doesn’t delve deeply into the past of childhood, old memories or trauma.  These areas may be touched upon in session, but only in the service of looking at the present and how to move forward. Therapy helps you understand where you’ve been, how long standing patterns and ways of living that you learned early in life developed and may be continuously influencing how you live now, and how you can make deep shifts in your long entrenched make-up of yourself. The process of therapy tends to be more involved, longer duration and more broadly articulated goals.

Coaching helps you get the tools and tips you need for that specific goal or change through the use of action plans.  Coaching, through time limited sessions and packages, offers clients tools they can use to get respite from their current state of mind and affairs and decide how to make changes that will go into effect immediately.
