Knowing the difference between counselling and life coaching!
“Whether you choose a counsellor or a life coach will depend on where you are now and the types of outcomes you are wanting to achieve”
Even though there are similarities between life coaching and counselling, such as asking thought provoking questions, listening to hear and understand and noticing patterns of behaviour in people’s lives, they are definitely not the same thing.
Counselling deals with more serious issues, such as clinical depression, severe anxiety, severe panic attacks, major phobias, OCD, moving beyond neglect or abuse or abandonment to name a few. An ethical coach will refer you to either your doctor or a counsellor for more specialist attention.
Life Coaching gets people unstuck… you might be struggling with overwhelm, mild anxiety that is disrupting your day, can’t get past feeling sad after being let down, lacking confidence, feeling unmotivated or lost. You know you are ok but you just can’t shake these disruptive feelings and you are consciously aware that you want to make changes.
Life Coaching can help you achieve your goals. A coach can keep you accountable with a weigh loss challenge for example, if you have career or business goals a coach can help you stay on track. Accountability coaching is my favourite type of coaching, especially for adults. Having someone in your corner is priceless.
It’s about creating the life YOU want to live and the person YOU choose to be!
Life Coaches will provide you with the tools you need to break through limiting beliefs, build your confidence and self-esteem, achieve your goals, create more happiness and fulfilment in your life. They don’t give you the answers, they help you find your own answers.
Life Coaching will help you reach your full potential. Helping you get from where you are now to where you want to be. You will uncover limiting beliefs patterns that are keeping you stuck and holding you back.
If that sounds good to you, then imagine learning these skills and having these tools at a young age! Your kids will be one step ahead with their emotional wellbeing as they progress through life. They will naturally call on these skills when problems arise. They will be resilient and have a growth mindset that knows with certainty that they can overcome any obstacle that life presents.
