Difference Between Therapy And Coaching

Distinguishing Therapy from Coaching

A Counsellor/Psychotherapist possesses specialized training to address mental health issues, offering targeted support for individuals facing psychological challenges. In contrast, Coaches typically focus on enhancing the well-being of already healthy clients.

Counsellors/Psychotherapists typically adhere to structured approaches and specific clinical models, while Coaching operates with greater flexibility, prioritizing the empowerment of already functional individuals. 

Therapy with a Counsellor/Psychotherapist often involves open-ended and ongoing sessions, whereas coaches typically engage in time-limited interventions.

Individuals in a therapy setting may constantly battle aspects of their life that need to change for them to function. Coaching is often for those individuals who desire to make changes in their lives, rather than feeling compelled by necessity.
