How are Coaching and Counselling different?

Coaching and Counselling are both similar and different. They are not mutually exclusive.

Although counselling covers mental health, both help explore any emotional and social obstacles getting in the way of a client’s personal growth and professional performance.

Coaching and counselling are a collaborative process that can…

  • be time limited
  • offer specific behavioural outcomes
  • be goal and future focused
  • be strength based
  • focus on holistic health
  • delve into the past as needed to uncover obstacles
  • work with conscious experience
  • be a catalyst for change
  • be transformational
  • be educational
  • enhance curiosity and self discovery
  • offer professional development
  • enhance human potential
  • focus on thoughts, feelings, and behaviour
  • help solve problems
  • create a new future
  • assist with developing effective strategies
  • build resilience
