What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching is different than mental health counseling in critical ways, but both types of specialists offer benefits. Life coaches typically can’t diagnose and provide treatment plans for mental health disorders. Counselors and therapists do. Life coaches help people establish goals, find motivation, and achieve those goals. Their focus isn’t on mental health. A life coach uses motivational techniques to help someone accomplish goals that are unique to them and their aspirations. A person would go to a life coach for guidance in establishing more meaning in their life.
