How is Life Coaching Different than Therapy?
Although both coaches and counsellors offer a support system to help you gain strength and clarity to move forward.
Coaching deals with where you are now and where you want to be.
Counsellors are often interested in helping you deal with past trauma.
However, there are forms of therapy such as (CBT) cognitive behavioural therapy that doesn’t focus too much on the past.
Life coaching is action-orientated while counsellors and therapists are more coping and healing orientated.
