What is the difference between Life Coaching & Therapy?

One analogy that best describes the difference between Therapy and Life Coaching is that a Therapist is more like an archeologist and a Life Coach is more like an architect.  
Therapists help you sift back through your past to connect prior experiences with current life functioning.  
A Life Coach is more like an architect. Work begins where you are currently at in your life and focuses on your future.  


Why work with a      Therapist?

The focus in therapy is on mental health and emotional healing. If you notice unwanted patterns in your life, there is often a core belief that may be holding you in that pattern.


You should consider therapy if:


  • You are experiencing mental health symptoms that are causing distress in your life (trauma, anxiety, depression, compulsive or additive behaviors)

  • Interpersonal relationships feel challenging to you

  • You want support managing your emotions

  • You are seeking to heal from past trauma  

Why work with a Life Coach?

A life coach is someone that partners with clients by 

empowering them to make, meet and exceed goals and intentions in their lives. 

I will help you to: 

  • make intentional space in your life 

  • refocus or redefine priorities

  •  hold you accountable

  • help you become clear about where you are and where you wish to be

The space between where you are and where you wish to be is where the magic of coaching takes place.
