What is the difference between a coach, a consultant and a therapist? I get this question all the time and here’s how I answer it:
A Coach: is someone who holds space for you, reflects your actions and results back to you so you can process what is currently going on in your life.
A Consultant: is someone who listens to your needs and offers solutions to solve them for you.
A Therapist: is a licensed and trained professional who helps you process pain from your past.
What do you need in your life right now to move the needle forward? Are you stuck in a job that you’ve outgrown and you’re just coasting? Or maybe you’re in a relationship where you’re just going through the motions. When is the last time you felt excited about work? Or something you were looking forward to in your life?
All of the above can help you get to your next level, and we live in a space and time where it’s okay to ask for help. Many of my clients come to me because they don’t have a trusted advisor to help them process all the stuff they deal with on a daily basis! And you know what? You don’t have to tell a single soul you got help either, you can just start today by saying you’re moving forward and your time is now.
My own coaching story goes something like this: I was married and a stay at home mom with my two boys for 10 years. One day my husband decided he wanted to start a new life on his own, without us. Through the help of my friends, I was able to move out, get a job, find daycare and start my own new life. Through the help of my therapist, I was able to heal from the break up and bad behaviors we had both become accustomed to in our relationship. Through the help of my dating coach, I was able to find a new way to love, meet an amazing new partner and now I’m living happily ever after!
Over the years, I have hired several coaches to help me with something I needed: High Performance, Business, and Life. I believe in the power of coaching and sometimes consulting, if needed. While I specialize in Leadership coaching and consulting, we cover a wide range of topics. If you are struggling with something right now, reach out and schedule a strategy session with me, if I can’t help, I will refer you to someone who can.
