FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How is coaching different from therapy?
A Therapist: A therapist is most interested in the reasons behind why you are struggling. What’s in your past, or childhood, that presents a barrier to handling your current situation? They focus on why the problem is there.
A Coach: A coach offers a different type of relationship altogether. There’s a lot of asking and not much telling. They are your champion. They work with you to tap into what you already know and help you break through any limiting beliefs that may exist. A coach is cheering you on every step of the way. They focus on you.
