Life Coaching for Individuals
In Life Coaching a client works with a coach to identify and overcome current problematic habits or behavior that might be getting in the way of achieving the success they are looking for. It is an action-oriented and solution-focused approach that helps people create practical plans to achieve their goals.
Life Coaches do not diagnose the individuals they work with. Coaches help people develop effective strategies to define a purpose, overcome obstacles, improve relationships, set goals, define values, and navigate the changes and transitions of life.
Therapy is a process in which a client works with a healthcare professional to diagnose and resolve problematic beliefs, behaviors, relationship issues, feelings and sometimes physical responses. The idea behind therapy is to focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships and work through painful feelings. In this sense, therapy is exploratory and focuses on the past and on introspection and analysis,
Although life coaches and therapists occasionally help clients with similar problems, their work is not the same. In order to get the right kind of professional expertise, it is crucial to know which kind of guidance will serve you best. Do you need a therapist, or do life coaching services better suit you? Life coaching isn’t simply a watered-down version of therapy. It is a dynamic discipline designed to help motivate and inspire people to achieve more than they believe is possible.
