Sometimes our goals seem outside our reach and we need to support to identify the tools needed to enhance our performance and personal satisfaction. Coaching is an excellent way to take specific steps to address areas of tension and dissatisfaction in your life. Whether it is a personal project, life balance, job performance and satisfaction, or general conditions in your, business, or profession having the support to take the steps to address the problem can be life changing.
Coaching versus Psychotherapy
While there are some similarities between coaching and psychotherapy, they are very different activities. Psychotherapy is a health care service and involves assessment and diagnosis of symptoms. This is not true for coaching. Both coaching and psychotherapy utilize knowledge of human behavior, motivation and behavioral change, and interactive counseling techniques. The major differences are in the goals, focus, and level of professional responsibility. The relationship between the coach and client is specifically designed to avoid the power differentials that occur in the psychotherapy relationship.
