Is coaching the same as therapy?
No, coaching and therapy are not the same.
Coaching vs. therapy has been compared to physiotherapy vs. personal training. Physiotherapy takes a body that is injured or unwell in some way, and works to bring healing, while personal training takes a body that is generally well and helps the body reach higher levels of functioning. In the same way, therapy helps people who are struggling with emotional wounds or difficult life events to heal or cope, while coaching helps people who are relatively emotionally healthy to achieve specific goals in their lives.
