Health and Wellness Coach
While therapists focus on diagnosis, treatment, and issues of clients in serious distress, coaches focus on strengths and wellness, helping clients who may be facing challenges to build a better future. Coaches work with people who may already be doing some things well in their lives and who wish to do better or develop in other dimensions. Discovering possibilities and envisioning the future is both more fun and, in many cases, more effective than resolving problems and revisiting the past.
As a health & wellness coach, I do not provide diagnosis or prescribe treatment. Instead, we will partner together to assess where you are now in terms of health and wellness and where you would like to be; to create a wellness vision based on your needs, values, and desires; to set and accomplish meaningful and sustainable health-related goals.
The main similarity between coaching and psychotherapy is a relationship based on trust and rapport between two parties, client and coach or client and therapist.
