What is therapy?
Therapy, also called counseling or psychotherapy, is a long-term process in which a client works with a mental health professional to diagnose and resolve problematic beliefs, behaviors, relationship issues, feelings and sometimes physical responses. The idea behind therapy is to focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships and work through painful feelings. In this sense, therapy focuses on the past and on introspection and analysis, with the hope of resolving past issues and creating a happier, more stable future.
What does a life coach do?
The difference between a life coach and therapist is that a life coach sets clients up with a process that may be long or short-term, instead of regular sessions. In life coaching, a client works with a coach, who may or may not be a healthcare professional; in order to clarify goals and identify obstacles and problematic behaviors in order to create action plans to achieve desired results. The process of life coaching takes the client's current starting point as an acceptable neutral ground and is more action-based from that point onward. A life coach enables the person receiving coaching to take control of their life and take action to steer it toward their goals.
