|What is coaching?
|According to the
Puget Sound Coaching Association, “Coaching is partnering with
clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires
them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
What is counseling?
|According to the
American Counseling Association, “Counseling is a professional
relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups
to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals.”
So, how is coaching different from counseling?
There is some overlap between the two in that both can focus on education, career, and life goals; and on the emotions experienced by the client.
Counseling can focus on the past, on the story, and how it affects the client in today’s world.
Coaching tends to focus more on the future and the business of moving forward.
Another difference is that counseling tends to focus on diagnosing the specific challenge(s) and assigning a diagnosis code to it or them. There are no diagnoses in coaching. This means that insurance is not involved in any way in coaching, which means that coaching is always paid for out-of-pocket.

|Will the coach tell me how
to fix this?
|This type of coaching is not like sports coaching. The
coach is not going to tell their client what to do. The coach will help
their client focus on the decisions they need to make and in setting and
achieving goals that move them toward the better life they want and
deserve. Coaches are facilitators, not advisors.
|I saw you for couples’
counseling. Can I now see you for Divorce Coaching?
||This gets into a potential
ethical issue. If the person you are breaking up with now is the same
person involved in our couples’ counseling, then, unfortunately, I will
not provide Divorce Coaching for you. However, if the person you’re
breaking up with is not the same one involved in our couples’
counseling, then we can talk about Divorce Coaching.
|I've heard about a
"sponsor" in coaching. What the heck is a sponsor?

Coach Federation (ICF),
In many cases, the client and the sponsor are the same person.
