What is the difference between a life coach and a therapist?

Life coaching is a partnership with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential. Coaching is about empowering you to come up with your own answers. Someone may come to a life coach to achieve a goal or to change, enhance or improve some area of their life. Coaching takes the client from where they are to where the way to be.

Coaching is also results-oriented and focuses on making changes in the present. The client creates a plan of action to move forward, and the coach holds the clent accountable to follow through with that plan of action. During the process, common blocks and obstacles are addressed.

Therapy or counseling is about healing deep emotional issues, usually arising from the past. Perhaps someone has been abused or experienced some degree of trauma. Perhaps someone keeps talking about their family and how their family holds them back.

Others may have mental illness to the extent that if affects their functioning in day-to-day life. Some of these illnesses like depression, anxiety, bipolar and others need the help of a psychotherapist.

Certified Spiritual, Life and Mediation Coach Maggie Kelly combines life coaching with meditation to help her clients tune in and get clear to their life’s purpose.
