What is the difference between Counselling, Psychotherapy and Life Coaching?

Counselling pays a lot of attention to a perceived ‘problem’ in a person’s life. It focuses on the effect of the past on the present. It tries to identify how some past event of significant (and often tragic) proportions may have caused you to feel the way you do about yourself and life presently. It seeks to resolve your feeling in relation to that event by revisiting it and attempting to ‘deal’ with it. Therapy, sometimes combined with specific bodily treatments such as drugs, naturopathy, acupuncture and hypnosis, aims to ‘cure’ or alleviate medical symptoms of depression, pain and anxiety caused by past events. Coaching focuses on acceptance and observation of what currently exists in a person’s life and what the client can do by his/her own action and self-belief to change his/her life for the future. The coach does not seek to ‘fix’ anything – but assists clients to become inwardly stronger with a greater belief in their own capacity to handle life. In this way clients will express their talents and act in their own best interests with passion and purpose, regardless of their past. Coaching focuses on how clients would really like things to look in their lives in the future, removing or neutralising the pain of guilt or fear. Clients learn what it is that causes them to feel things they do not wish to feel. How to deconstruct the experiences, and how to change their approach to build and maintain a more positive future.
