What is personal coaching?
“Coaching is a process by which a trained professional helps bring out the absolute best in a person by emotionally connecting one’s inner purpose and passion to their outer goals and tasks to bring about extraordinary results.”

How is coaching different than Therapy?
Therapy takes people from dysfunctional to functional. Coaching takes people from functioning to optimal. In fact, many who are seeing a therapist might benefit from also working with a coach. Both coaching and therapy use the client's past in healing. Therapy uses the past to find out why and how the client might be experiencing a particular situation in their life. Coaching only deals with the past in regards to helping a client move forward on a specific area. People who find they are suffering from severe depression, addictions, mental disorders and/or suicidal thoughts should first work with a licensed mental health specialist. Once a therapeutic relationship has been established, some find coaching a great addition to their healing. Coaching is not meant to take the place of therapy for individuals who need those services. Though I am a certified empowerment life coach, I AM NOT A LICENSED THERAPIST NOR DO I PROVIDE THERAPEUTIC COUNSELING.
