CareerLifeIs life coaching a right fit for your clients?

October 1, 2021by Jill Douka0

How to know if you should keep or redirect a client?

Life coaching is gaining worldwide acclaim for being one of the most potent self-development practices. But how should your clients know how to trust its methods or seek another type of support to assist them with their personal or professional challenges? Many find it hard to distinguish between coaching and therapy, but frankly, there is a significant difference.

While a therapist (psychologist or psychiatrist) can help a client with his mental health difficulties by dealing mainly with the past, a life coach focuses on what he’s now and developing his best dynamics based on his current situation. A life coach supports him to go from where he’s now to where he wants to be.
As a non-regulated profession, life coaching can often be confused with other mental health providers. But in life coaching, we do not have sessions with people that are not functional, meaning that we are not qualified to deal with psychological disorders.

It’s one of the principal lessons I instruct students in the New York College’s certified program Life Coaching & Leadership, to help them acknowledge the true nature of our profession. Find more info about the syllabus and the enrollments of the program here

As long as we ensure that we have a functional case, this is where we pop in! And we change their lives simply by prompting them to take responsibility for their actions and by asking them those motivating and powerful questions. Exactly as Socrates once did.

So don’t be afraid to see and point out the differences. We need to be as credible and trustworthy as we can. And this is why we must evaluate each situation separately. To help even more people get the help they truly need!

 

Global Academy Coaching Certificate is an integrated experiential program that combines perfectly theory and practice. Through my studies, I have become a very good Life Coach, I have learned to focus on my own desires, turn them into goals and finally implement them. Definitely, the best personal investment I have ever made!
