The Capable YOU
Therapy vs Coaching
Therapy, also called counseling or psychotherapy, is a long-term 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.
Coaching, it is often said, is more collaborative and the coach does not claim to be an expert on all topics. They typically do not dwell on the past; it is results-oriented and aims to maximize capacity, not process feelings. The duration with a life coach tends to be a shorter time frame or project based; its focus is narrowing in on a few topics at a time. The process of life coaching takes the client’s current starting point as an acceptable neutral ground and is more action-based from that point onward. A life coach enables the person receiving treatment to take control of their life and take action to steer it toward their goals.
Benefits of Coaching
Having a Certified Youth Life Coach and/or Peak Performance Coach saves you from taking the long route to find solutions and positions you for positive growth moments, in your daily life.
