What's the difference between coaching and therapy?
Therapy explores and focuses on the client's past while coaching recognizes and honors the past, but focuses on the present moment. Therapy is bout diagnosing and treating mental illness. Coaches do not work with mental illness. Coaching focuses on strategies and solutions that takes clients from where they are to where they want to be. Coaching is a collaborative process that is solely based on the client's wants and the client's agenda.
