The difference between coaching and counseling is that a professional counselor can diagnose and treat issues, a coach cannot. A counselor will most often focus on a specific issue that the client came in for. In Deeper Coaching we will focus on specific issues, and also connect those issues with the larger trajectory of the client’s life. It is a wholistic approach healing the past, integrating the past with the present, and confidently moving into the future. I often use the analogy of a broken limb. Counseling, therapy, psychiatry and psychology are like emergency surgery and Deeper Coaching is like the physical therapy that teaches you how to live with, strengthen and heal the limb over time.
