What Everyone Out To Know About Life Coaching vs. Therapy

 Everyone can use a little extra support when handling life’s challenges….right?



One way to get it is by talking with a professional.



Before you immediately dismiss the idea, consider this:  Verbalizing feelings can have a significant therapeutic effect on the brain.  Getting your worries out to someone who is trained to help you manage them is a good thing for your well being.



So…you’ve decided to take the plunge and get some professional support.  Should you seek out a professional counselor or would a life coach benefit you more?  Let’s talk about how the two differ. 



Therapists, or psychologists, or counselors have master’s as well as doctorate degrees and are required to be licensed by their state.  These licensed professionals focus on the long-term and work on ways to understand your thoughts, moods and behaviors. 



Life Coaches are encouraged to obtain certification through an accredited program like the International Coaching Federation.  Unlike therapists, there are no degree requirements.  Life Coaches aim to motivate, offer emotional support and create confidence in their clients.   Many life coaches focus on creating a new life path in order to achieve goals, and to move forward. 


What matters is that people get help in their efforts to grow, master their problems and become more effective in their lives.
