What is Life Coaching?
While there are some similarities between counseling and life coaching, coaching is not counseling, and is not a substitute for it. Counseling is offered by licensed therapists for mental health and emotional well-being. A life coach is a non-healthcare professional who helps clients with personal and professional development and goal setting. A life coach will assess client strengths and habits and create a plan to forge a path for a client to achieve long-term or short-term goals. A life coach works in partnership with a client to implement the plan, provides guidance and training in some cases, or provides a list of appropriate resources necessary for success. A life coach may also be confused with a mentor because the relationships between coach and client are similar, but coaching differs from mentoring by focusing on specific objectives, as opposed to more general development.
