What is the difference between coaching and counselling?
The main and very simple differentiation is that counselling or therapy mainly deals with the past (e.g. traumas) and working through this. Life coaching on the other hand is future and goal oriented. It is about the clients transformation to get from where they are now to where they would like to be. It includes getting clear on what it is they really want, clarity, goal setting, accountability and helping the client with their mindset, changing limiting beliefs and pushing through the ups and downs of the transformation process. Anyone can do it alone but it requires a lot of willpower which many of us do not have. A coach will help with this, will motivate, will put you back on track when you want to give up and will ensure you get from where you are now to where you want to be.
