Coaching vs. Counseling

How Coaching vs. Counseling Can Benefit You

Individual counseling, or psychotherapy, generally deals with addressing personal, emotional or behavioral difficulties and/or past painful situations. Although there are exceptions, as in the case of some humanistic or solution-focused psychotherapy practices, psychotherapy usually involves treating certain disorders. For example:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Depression and eating disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • ADD and OCD

The aim in psychotherapy individual counseling is usually to bring the client to normal functioning. We usually conduct therapy in person and only occasionally over the phone. Coaching, on the other hand, helps an already successful, generally high-functioning person to reach a higher level of success. Life coaching helps clients leverage their personal strengths and develop themselves in ways that bring greater success and satisfaction in their career or their personal life. We often conduct coaching either in person or over the telephone. The aim of life coaching is generally to improve personal performance and achieve excellence and greater success. Your coach can help you:

  • Clarify your vision of your life
  • Start a new career or business
  • Set goals and plan for business
  • Increase your business profits
  • Develop new skills or interests
  • Balance work and family life
  • Handle personal or business challenges
  • Make important decisions
  • Get healthy & stay in shape
  • Prioritize actions & projects
  • Train, develop & manage staff
  • Find time for yourself
  • Turn difficulties into positive outcomes
