As you can tell from the above categories, I am also a psychotherapist in private practice. When I am coaching, my focus is on closing the gap between where the individual is currently and what their goals are and providing the support and tools that they need to accomplish their goals and achieve greater fulfillment.
What is a Life Coach
Some assert that Life Coaching is psychotherapy without restrictions, oversight and regulation. In 1994 the Colorado State legislature held a hearing on these concerns and disagreed. They asserted that coaching is unlike therapy because it does not focus on examining or diagnosing the past. Instead, coaching focuses on effecting change in a client’s current and future behavior. Additionally, Life Coaching does not delve into diagnosing mental illness or dysfunction.
