What's the deal with... COACHING?
Updated: Jun 16, 2021
What’s the deal with coaching? Let’s talk about it! Coaching can be useful for working on a variety of different topics, such as career and professional development, lifestyle and wellness, habits and routines, and so much more. The goal of coaching is to lead you to a life of greater fulfillment, develop the tools and mindset to achieve the changes you seek, and learn to conquer obstacles along the way.
Although we are therapists by trade, coaching is much different from mental health psychotherapy. Therapy follows strict guidelines and ethics determined by a national board. Therapy requires specific masters-level training and licensure to treat and diagnose mental health disorders, overcome trauma and past issues, and to promote emotional healing. A therapist’s goal is to facilitate the awareness, growth, and psychological development of a client. Specific treatment models and clinical guidelines determine the extent of which a therapist can assist you. Therapists often work hand in hand with other providers and must adhere to continuing education requirements in their specific state of practice.
