Coaching’s focus is on present challenges and future action.
Coaching is generally short term and goal oriented.
While traditional therapies look at the past and root causes to inform the present, Coaching is especially useful when you know the roots of your problem and are ready to transition into new behaviors.
Coaching requires an active, ongoing dialogue between client and practitioner.
The broad term “Life Skills” is often applied to the content of coaching though the topics generally overlap entirely with those addressed through psychotherapy.
