good stuff for your life… & the relationships in it
Though both coaching and therapy require an understanding of human behavior as well as motivational, behavioral and counseling techniques, there are major differences between the two in regard to focus, goals, and perspective.
A coach helps you use the knowledge and skills you already have to:
Coaching is forward-looking, and places the emphasis on shifting perspective… on what is possible.
The primary focus of a counselor, or therapist, on the other hand, is to help you understand the history and personal dynamics behind dysfunctional or destructive behavior patterns and symptoms and to assist you in getting in touch with those dynamics and processing through them to a place of peace and wholeness.
Due to the more sensitive, introspective nature of the counseling model, we reserve therapy for our in-office clients.
