Today I was asked about the difference between COUNSELING and COACHING... here's a brief answer in a comparison format.
Counseling has a goal of creating STABILITY
Coaching has a goal of creating SIGNIFICANCE & SUCCESS
is often about dealing with unresolved issues from the PAST
Coaching is usually about building a better FUTURE
Counseling has a final goal of creating a better feeling - to achieve COMFORT
Coaching has a final goal of pushing for better results - to CHALLENGE
Both disciplines are important, but not everyone needs a counselor since so many people have stable, but boring and unfulfilled lives. However everyone needs a coach.
What about you?
Do you need counseling to get 'unstuck' from a painful past?
Do you need coaching to gain satisfaction and strength to create a better future?
Once you know your path - get moving.
