What Is The Difference Between Counselling and Coaching?
Both counselling and coaching have the overall aim of helping you thrive in life instead of feeling as if you are just surviving. In essence, if you are feeling overwhelmed and struggling day to day, a counsellor can help you find a way to cope, better understand yourself and the past, and deal with traumatic events so that you can gently begin to move forward.
On the other hand, if you feel ok generally with your day-to-day life but want to achieve more in life, coaching can guide you to take positive action by asking you poignant questions and helping you set focused goals and being accountable in reaching them.
There is often a natural overlap between both approaches which can complement each other in the therapy process.
All my life I have been drawn to the natural world, travel, adventure and diverse cultures. I instinctively knew there were other ways of thinking and being in this world and so I have travelled frequently to explore. So, my life’s journey has been a rich tapestry of twists and turns which have all been deep learning curves along the way.
I found the coaching to be very informative and opened my eyes up to new possibilities. It forced me to look at myself from a different perspective/angle. I found out I had far more strengths than weaknesses which helped with building my confidence. Sally takes a holistic approach, so you gain a more rounded coaching experience.
You brought so much peace into my world, thank you!
Relaxing whilst laying in my bundle of blankets on the mat and listening to Sally playing the Gongs and other instruments has been a truly incredible and uplifting journey of sound. After a session I feel refreshed, happy and at peace to keep moving forward in my life. I thoroughly recommend this type of relaxation for self-care. So glad I have discovered this unique experience – an incredible gem.
