What is Coaching versus Counseling?
Similarities: Although there are some similarities between Coaching and psychotherapy, Coaching and counseling are different practices. It is important that you understand the differences between them. Although both Coaching and Counseling utilize knowledge of human behavior, motivation, behavioral change, and interactive techniques, there are major differences in the goals, focus, and level of intensity and type of professional responsibility.
Life Coaching: Professional Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps produce extraordinary results in people’s lives, education, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future. Coaches recognize that results are a matter of the client’s intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coach’s efforts and application. You can expect that I, your Coach, will be honest and direct, asking straightforward questions and using challenging techniques to help you move forward toward reaching your maximum potential.
Vs. Counseling: Counseling/Psychotherapy, on the other hand, is a health care service. The primary focus of Counseling/Psychotherapy is to work through a holistic lens to identify client strengths, as well as to identify, diagnose, and treat mental health challenges to assist them to reach optimal well-being. The goals include alleviating symptoms, understanding the underlying personality dynamics which create symptoms, changing the dysfunctional behaviors which are the result of these disorders, and helping patients to cope with their psychological problems.
What Types of Coaching Can I Choose From?
Individual Life Coaching: This is designed uniquely to your needs to create a dialogue with the focus on defining your life goals, identifying obstacles which prevent you from reaching them, and taking action steps to maximize your potential by living the meaningful life you’ve always desired. We would work together to assist you in finding ways around the obstacles through awareness, intentionality, and action steps to do the things needed achieve the desired results.
Business Coaching: I have run multiple businesses from the top down for the last several decades, including a community organization and real estate investment business with over 100 buildings. I have assisted businesses at many levels to evaluate their mission, culture, communication, and execution to produce optimal results. Sometimes we need an outside set of eyes on our business to identify areas that have become problematic. I can assist in developing a plan to identify and optimize the strengths of your business while helping you develop specific action steps to weed out the problematic issues that limit your success.
Executive and Career Coaching: I offer coaching to help executives, managers, and other career minded individuals discover what they love to do best and strategize how to advance their career in a direction which maximizes their passions and strengths. I've worked with people at all levels of business and in a variety of careers to assist them to reach their maximum potential both personally and financially. I assist with career transitions, job searching strategies, networking, interviewing techniques, branding, and managing a career in the context of other life priorities.
Student Coaching: Students often can use help in managing the challenges of high school and college as they develop personally, socially, and academically. I offer coaching to assist students and families in navigating these changes and preparing for college and life after college. I also provide a seamless transition so that high school students entering college who are working with me do not have to forgo a familiar relationship and seek a new coach or counselor in college. Thanks to technology, and the flexibility of phone coaching sessions, I can be a stabilizing force that they are familiar with to assist them in transitions anywhere they go. I have expertise in coaching students with special needs and circumstances, including those who are identified as Gifted Learners.
