Understanding the difference between therapy vs coaching

Understanding therapy vs coaching

Hey there, folks!

So, you're on a journey of self-improvement, right? That's awesome! But here's the thing: figuring out the best support system for your growth can be a bit confusing. That's where I come in. As someone who's all about empowering women (though I'm here for everyone), I've got some insights to share on the difference between therapy and coaching, and how they can both play a role in your journey.

First up, therapy.

Picture this as your deep-dive into emotional healing and self-discovery. Therapists are like your guides through the maze of your mind and heart. They help you unpack past experiences, tackle mental health issues, and find ways to cope and heal. It's all about understanding yourself better and finding peace with your past. Remember, therapy looks into your past.

Now, let's talk coaching.

This is where we kick things into action mode. Coaches are like your personal cheerleaders and strategists rolled into one. We're all about setting goals, making plans, and getting stuff done. It's less about diving into your past and more about building your future. Whether you're aiming for a promotion, better relationships, or just a happier, healthier life, coaching is all about helping you reach those goals. With coaching, I meet you where you are and help you go where you want to go.

So, what's the difference?

Therapy is like fixing up the foundation of your house—it's all about making sure everything's stable and secure. Coaching is like adding on that awesome new kitchen or deck—it's about making your life even better than it already is.

Here's a handy chart to illustrate the key differences:

But here's the cool part:

Therapy and coaching aren't exclusive clubs. In fact, they make a pretty awesome tag team. Say you've been working through some tough stuff in therapy—once you've made progress on those emotional roadblocks, coaching can help you take things to the next level. It's like therapy sets the stage, and coaching helps you steal the show.

In my practice, I'm all about creating a safe space for women to explore, grow, and kick some serious butt. Whether we're digging into the deep stuff in therapy or making big moves in coaching,

My goal is always the same: to help you become the happiest, most badass version of yourself.
