The Difference Between a Life Coach and a Therapist...

So you want you to get better but don't know where to start? A life coach or a therapist?

A life coach and a therapist are both in the business of transforming lives. The differences are in the level of education, training and approach based on the needs of their clients.

A life coach focuses on the future and a therapist focuses on the past. A life coach can help improve clients relationships, careers, day to day management and life skills. A coach can also help clients clarify goals, identify any emotional or mental blocks and then come up with strategies to overcome obstacles to achieve success. Life coaching is typically a more short term process whereas therapy can be ongoing. A therapist and a life coach often do many of the same things, but a therapist focuses more on mental health as well as analyzing their client's past as a guide for understanding current behaviors. Think of a therapist as the "why" and a life coach as the "how" to reach goals. While there are many similarities, a life coach can not treat mental illness and is not trained to do so. Yet, a life coach and a therapist can be a great team to equip their clients to be their best in every way!
