Differences between Coaching and Counselling:
Psychotherapy (counselling) generally deals with emotional/behavioral problems, challenges, or disruptive situations – and seeks to bring the client to their individual “optimal” functioning by focusing on their “dysfunction” and augmenting a healing change process. Therapeutic goals are developed collaboratively, and respectfully, during the first session. Therapy is usually done in-person, although at times, it may be done over the telephone. Counsellors support and help their clients.
Coaching deals with “functional” persons who want to move toward “higher function” and achieve excellence while creating an extraordinary life. Coaching is a process similar to brief solution-focused therapy techniques that therapists use for less serious psycho-emotional problems and life stresses.
Coaching goes beyond problem solving. Coaching co-creates a life for the client that is purposeful and focused. This is achieved through holding the client accountable to their own stated hopes and goal actions. Coaching is frequently more directive than therapy, does not focus on the client’s “feelings” so much as it addresses client’s desires and preferred behaviours (life actions). Coaching pragmatically assists people to have more of what they want and less of what they don’t want.
I’m holding a MA in Applied Psychology and Professional Counseling and I am a NLP Coach (Neuro Linguistic Programming).
I’m integrating Energy Psychologies like EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Applied Kinesiology, Emotional Release and Energy Medicine like Reiki, resulting in a Short Solution Oriented Therapy.
I’m offering Remote Session with Skype Technology and Email Support.
An important advantage in conducting coaching sessions remotely is that you have a convenience of options to suit your schedule and specific needs. Our work will progress from the comfort and privacy of your own locale.
