The difference between therapy and coaching.
To put it simply, in coaching you will not seek understanding of, or explore your issues and concerns, thoughts, feelings or behaviours. These can be seen as the foundational aspects of who you are and how you approach your life.
The purpose of coaching is to identify what you want to achieve in a specific area, decide your goals, and plan how you will achieve those goals. It starts in the present and is action, goal and future oriented. Going through the process of coaching can reveal that you could benefit from having therapy.
Therapy and coaching require different (yet complimentary) skill sets. A Coach should only provide therapy if they are qualified to do so.
What About You

Individual sessions focused on you, provide an opportunity to delve deep into areas of concern, explore and identify the root cause, gain insights and understanding. In parallel define and adopt new thought processes and behaviours.
