Why is Therapeutic Life Coaching better than Counselling?


It cannot be?

"But I love my counselor, I have been seeing them for years!"

"My counselor really gets me, I get to talk about all my problems."

And there, people is why Therapeutic Life Coaching is a better solution for folks that want to move on from their problems and not keep talking about them.

Are you sick of talking about all your woes?
Do you want a solution and be able to leave those worries behind?
Then a Life Coaching session through a Therapeutic lens is your answer.

Counselling and Therapy are an important offering and I would highly recommend you seek help if that is what you need.

The big difference is that in a Therapeutic Life Coaching session you get real take home tools to heal, to solve and to remind you that life is for living.

Therapeutic Life Coaching sits in the space between therapy and coaching and is designed for clients who – at most – would meet criteria for a minor diagnosis such as an adjustment disorder. The model is not designed to treat serious clinical diagnoses, but it can be used to compliment your other professional help.

A  Certified Therapeutic Life Coach, is a person who guides you to achieve goals, organise your time and helps focus you on the outcome you want to achieve. Your traumas are resolved, the worries you had become manageable projects.
This may done by listening and then helping you to act on what you'd like different, they nurture and help you heal from your negative life experiences and set achievable goals that align with your true values.
Heal the past to empower the future.

Seek a Therapeutic Life Coach who has the following qualities:

  • Someone who inspires you and gets you excited about living your best life.
  • Someone who has experience working on the exact issues you are seeking help with.
  • Someone who is not afraid to be honest and refer you to other professionals.
  • Someone who uses effective strategies proven to improve your life.
  • Someone who you can feel comfortable being vulnerable and open with.
  • Someone who is trained in a Healing Modality that is effective such as Havening Techniques.
  • Someone who responds to you and your concerns and not follow scripted protocols with limited flexibility.

Finally, note that coaches all have different coaching philosophies – and this will guide your partnership, so make sure to select a coach whose approach resonates with you!
If you are seeking Therapy, be clear on what you want. If you are not sure then a Therapeutic Life Coach may be what you are after.
