HOW IS COACHING DIFFERENT THAN THERAPY? Therapy can include coaching, but coaching does not include therapy. Therapy will take into account your mental health needs and could be longer term, and include a mental health diagnosis, often billed to insurance.  In contrast, coaching will be briefer and will focus on reaching specific goals and obtaining the results that you desire. There is no diagnosis in coaching.  Coaching is a targeted, interactive process designed to facilitate concrete changes in performance and results that are life-changing.  A coach helps clients identify blocks to their goals and a path to achieve these goals.  A coach believes clients have the answer to their own problems and understand they just need guidance getting there.  Coaching programs are usually time-limited with the idea that a client can meet their goals in a specific time frame.  However, a person can work with a coach routinely individually until they feel they have reached their goals.    Therapy focuses on healing past experiences and looking over a person’s lifespan.  People in therapy will get a clinical diagnosis.  Trauma, anxiety disorders, depression, PTSD, are all clinical issues.

WHAT'S A CLINIC-COACH®? A clinic-coach® is a coach who has practiced or is still practicing as a therapist. They are a level above coaches who aren’t therapists first, because their training and years of experience give them a level up on knowledge and expertise in certain areas like asking the right questions, and helping clients to identify through the coaching process their own blocks and areas for improvement. They can use the wealth of skills and training they developed as a therapist to coach clients to resolve a specific problem.

WHAT IS THE BASIC APPROACH AND PHILOSOPHY OF COACHING? The basic assumptions of a coach are: - Believe in the human potential for greatness - They want to bring out the best in people, and trust people in the process of coaching to own their own truth and path. - Coaches encourage and believe that change needs action and discipline. - Everybody has the innate resources within them to create and actualize their life dreams.
