My Role as a Therapist

Although therapy and coaching can balance each other here are some ways they are distinctly different. The coach does not diagnose or treat the client. Coaching focuses on the present and the future whereas therapy focuses on healing from the past. Coaching will empower you to focus on being accountable whereas therapy will often focus on crisis, deficits and difficulties Coaching works on external issues whereas therapy looks at internal issues. *If a coach discovers that therapy is needed that is a positive outcome*
