The boundary between coaching and counselling is not always defined by a set of absolute rules or terms. However, counsellors are trained to identify and help clients with emotional problems, delving more deeply into specific past or current issues. The coach’s domain is more present and future-oriented – focusing on what the client wants and needs and searching for the best way to help them reach their objectives.
I offer both counselling and coaching for personal and professional development. It may be helpful to explain how they are similar. Coaching and counselling both use strategies, tools, and modalities that are collaborative, strength-based and solution-focused. They provoke new thoughts, patterns of thinking, and help build awareness and discipline, to change behaviour.
