Coaching v. Therapy

The Difference between Therapy and Coaching

Coaching is based on the premise that nothing about the client is broken, or needs fixing, and that the client is naturally creative, resourceful and whole. The coach assumes that you want to improve, enrich or enhance certain aspects of your life and wants to assist you in this endeavor. If, during the coaching, the coach sees an issue that might be more suited for traditional therapy, she will share her thoughts with you about getting that help for yourself.

What if I am currently in therapy?

Coaching and therapy are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Life coaching can be a great complement to traditional psychotherapy. It can help you accelerate your growth and solidify and strengthen gains made in therapy. This is something we would discuss on an individual basis.
