What is therapy?
Many people benefit from therapy because it helps them create greater self-awareness to work towards change in their lives.
What is Coaching?
- Coaching is not therapy, counseling, mental health care, or treatment for substance abuse. Although licensed providers provide coaching, the coach is not functioning as a licensed mental health professional in this work with you. Although services are designed to be therapeutic, coaching is not intended as a replacement for counseling, psychiatric interventions, treatment for mental illness, recovery from past abuse, professional medical advice, financial assistance, legal counsel, or other professional services.
- Coaching is designed to address issues the person being coached would like to consider.
- Coaching is a confidential relationship, and the coach agrees to keep all information strictly confidential, except in those situations where such confidentiality would violate the law or could jeopardize the safety of the client or others.
What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
Both coaching and therapy can help you achieve your personal goals, but there are some key differences between the two.
- In the therapy setting, we have therapist/patient privilege such that all communications, including the mere fact that you are a client, are kept strictly confidential (This is subject to certain legal exceptions, which you can read about above).
- As a coaching client, while my policy is to keep what is said in our sessions confidential, the fact that you are a client is not confidential and there are no strict legal requirements for confidentiality. Again, it is my policy to keep what we discussed in confidence.
- If you are a coaching client-only, your coach is not your therapist and will not be providing any psychotherapy. During the treatment, your coach may recommend that you engage a therapist. If this situation arises, we will discuss your options at that time.
