Coaching or Therapy?

Ann Daly PhD: life coach, speaker, authorOne of the FAQs that I receive from prospective coaching clients is about the difference between coaching and therapy. It’s an important question. How do you know which way to turn? Use this guide:

You need a coach if . . .

  • You want to change behaviors in the short run
  • You want to focus on the present and future
  • You want to clarify where you are today
  • You want to make a change, but you’re unsure what it is
  • You want to improve your professional performance
  • You want to deepen your life satisfaction
  • You look toward your potential achievement
  • You want a partner

You need a therapist if . . .

  • You want to analyze the root causes of emotional distress
  • You want to change emotions in the long run
  • You want to identify and deal with a diagnosis
  • You seek emotional healing
