“Coaches help people overcome the struggle and build resources such as self-empathy, self-motivation, self-awareness, mindfulness, new insights and perspectives, confidence, optimism, and resilience and make changes that last. Their new lifestyles become embedded into who they are.”
–McLean/Harvard Institute of Coaching
Coaching is not therapy.
Many times the focus of therapy is on the past. We look at our past experiences to process them more deeply and better understand our lives, our relationships, and ourselves.
Coaching is growth-focused, but in a different way than therapy. Coaching starts with where you are today–right now–and looks forward, acting and moving towards meeting your goals while putting into place important learning and the life changes you want to see happen.
