Coaching & Counseling Exploring Brain

Counseling = Looking Back and Coaching = Looking Forward

A skilful counselor and coach will help a person to acknowledge the past, gain a fresh perspective on it, and then form life goals which will help that person lead a considerably more positive and fulfilled life. The starting point is always how far along that journey the client is already.

The skilled counselor and life coach is able to use their skills to help their clients shake free from the negative influences of their pasts and set off on their journey into the future with fresh hope and vigor and a clear plan of where they would like to be and how they can get there.

In conclusion, is there a clearly defined difference? I prefer to think of them as blended skills which help a person discover how they can move from where they are to where they would like to be.

Life Coach vs. Therapist-Counselor
A therapist helps by healing old wounds, focusing on past issues, and dealing with personal problems that need to be analyzed and solved. The life coach, on the other hand, is a mentor or guide. Coaches focus on the manifestation of one's future vision with the potential to make those dreams come alive now with accountability and action steps co-designed by the coach and the client.

Therapy is about the past and present and all about focusing the client toward healing. Coaching, on the other hand, is about helping a client look forward so they can expand their options and take action." Life coaching is not about fixing a problem, but rather helping a client get out of the comfort zone and get more out of their life. Although therapy also can be experienced in the present moment, it often focuses on the family of origin, whereas coaching is a process whereby the client is consciously choosing a preferred future and at the same time living life fully and purposefully now. It clarifies what the client wants to improve upon, whether it be their career, relationship, health, physical wellness, or even spirituality.

Exploring BrainTherapy comes from a medical model. If a person is coping with low self-esteem, the psychotherapist analyzes where the client's negative self-image comes from. Life coaching, similarly, calls these negative voices saboteurs, but calls forth what is happening right now and champions all of the client's brilliance of who they are and have always been.

Many people use coaching to work through grief, trauma, anger, conflicts, divorce, stress, wellness, spiritual issues, low self-esteem, past hurts, marriage, career, abuse, domestic violence and many other issues. Life coaching takes a strength based approach. In the words of Jesus, "Do you want to get well?" or in the words of the Apostle Paul "Put away the past and look forward to what lies ahead." Life coaching helps you to put together a positive plan for the future.

Life Coaching encourages you to deal with your emotions that are sometimes repressed or suppressed which in turn prevents you from moving forward in life, relationships, career, goals and dreams. Life Coaching encourages you, equips you and empowers you to identify and remove toxic emotions and flawed beliefs so you can create the life you desire.
