What’s the difference between counseling and coaching services?
Counseling and Coaching focuses on two different time frames, Counseling focuses more on the past that has led you to have severe symptosm of depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation while Coaching focuses on some past expereinces and moves you more towards the future. Both Counseling and Coaching focus on how to make the present time a productive asset to one’s life. Counseling is state specific and has limitations. At this time, I am only licensed in North Carolina as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (Counselor) and you can use your insurance. For Coaching, it has not jurisdiction and is not state regulated and it is an out of pocket expense.
Although many people could benefit from Counseling to completely heal from their past hurt, Coaching offers a goal-oriented approach towards life in the future. Both Counseling and Coaching have the client in mind, the ultimate goal is to enable clients to become the best that they can be. If you are interested in coaching services, a thorough assessment would need to be conducted to determine which method is best for you at this time. It is defintely possible to see a counselor and therapist at the same time. Although I am qualified to perform both services, it is a conflict of interest to do both. If you are interested in coaching please reach out and a Intake Packet will be emailed to you to fill out.
