For people who are already in a great place mentally and physically, coaching is available for motivated people who want help reaching their goals and achieving their full potential. Coaching is an option that is more solution-focused and directive. I would offer tools to help you achieve your goals, as well as accountability and encouragement along the way.
Why choose a counselor as your coach?
1. Our education is far more extensive and comprehensive. For example, our education and experience would enable a counselor to identify underlying causes if coaching goals were not being met due to untreated anxiety, depression, or trauma.
2. Boundaries and ethics are enforced by our licensing body. In my case, AAMFT (American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists). This means we have a structured accountability and you are protected by the ethical guidelines, as well as the assurance that we are getting continued education to maintain our licensure.
