Life coaches aid their clients in improving their relationships, careers, and day-to-day lives. Life coaches can help you clarify your goals, identify the obstacles holding you back, and then come up with strategies for overcoming each obstacle.
The major difference between therapy and life coaching is the focus of the work:
therapy focuses on mental health and emotional healing, while life coaching focuses on setting and achieving goals. Therapy helps you learn to heal; coaching empowers you to achieve goals.
How it is done:
A typical life coaching session includes: – Identifying the client’s life vision
– Reviewing their program goals
– Creating the agenda for the session
– Exploring homework and assignments from the previous week
– Setting goals for the next sessions
Consider therapy if you want to heal or get help with a mental health concern; try life coaching if you need help getting “unstuck” or realizing a fuller potential.
