Life Coaching vs. Therapy
Both coaching and therapy contain elements of counseling—however, there are important differences to distinguish between them.
Unlike therapy, life coaching does not evaluate the client’s state of physical and mental health. The focus of coaching is on the present and ultimately the future, rather than the past.
Building Bridges To Better Lives works with clients to explore different, results-based solutions. Clients generally have a sense of what they’d like to achieve, no matter how general or specific.
Life coaching is not medicalized or licensed. Rather, it is an empowering form of counseling that guides clients towards their own solutions.
