What’s the difference between life coaching and therapy?

By Julie Cusmariu – March 23, 2018


I once heard this great analogy ( I can’t remember the source) that really helps to understand the difference between therapy and life Coaching. Therapy is like archeology where the focus is on excavating, digging, unearthing and examining the past to understand the present, (emotional patterns/old wounds affecting present behaviours, emotions, tendencies are identified and worked through) where as life coaching is like architecture, you work with what you’ve got in the present and uniquely design for the future.

Life coaching provides a safe confidential space to align with your talents, gifts and strengths while feeling the support of a trained professional to design and move you towards greater fulfillment and meaning. The coach training school I learned from, says it well’ The coach’s role is to raise the level of consciousness of the client through questions that allow the client to choose what they want, what they are prepared to do and what they are prepared to commit to them self in the present moment’.
