FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COACHING AND COUNSELLING?

What is coaching?

In short, a coach is someone who is trained to help you acknowledge where you are today more clearly, and then help and support you in finding ways, strategies and tools to move you forward and closer toward your goals.

A coach does not tell you what to do,  but rather acts as a sounding board to help you discover what is that you want to do in your life, career and with your personal wellbeing.

The objective of coaching is helping people achieve their goals. The basic presumption of coaching is that coaching clients are in a good and willing place mentally and emotionally, and ready to receive guidance and instruction on how to make changes that will help them achieve their goals. The work focuses on creating and maintaining motivation for change, exploring obstacles to change, and creating plans for change.


What is counselling?

In general, a Counsellor is someone who creates a safe and supportive space for you to explore who you are and cope with what you are facing in life.  They help you identify problems and act as a support system to help you gain the strength and clarity to cope and to move forward at last.

In counselling you share what is troubling you in a safe, objective and confidential environment, with a person trained to listen and respond in a way that will help you to understand yourself and others better. Counselling generally helps you find more effective ways to live a satisfying life.

The objective of counselling is helping people address and resolve problems that make them feel bad emotionally, or are impairing their ability to function well.  This can include healing from anxiety, depression, mood disorders, trauma, domestic violence, issues with family of origin, relationships and addictions.
