Coaching is not Counselling or Therapy.
Unlike Therapy, Coaching does not focus on the ‘Why?’ but instead it is ‘future focused’ and assists in guiding the client in the ‘How?’ of attaining a rewarding and fulfilling life.
The coach assists the client in clarifying where they currently are in their life while assisting them in planning their future successes. Coaching is an equal partnership between client and coach.
While the coach’s role is to ask questions in a direct and straight talking manner and offer ideas and suggestions which assist the client in their quest for positive life changes, ultimately the responsibility and accountability for carrying out these actions rests with the client.
When provided with the support and assistance of a qualified coach the miracles which unfold are quite literally wondrous. All that is required of the client is a genuine wish to make changes and an open, honest and willing spirit.
