Coaching is not therapy

Coaching is not therapy and also differs from mentoring.

Coaching guides someone along their self-discovery journey. A coach enables you to find your career goals.

Then they help to find the best path to get you there.

  • Talk to two or three coaches to see if you connect.
  • Explore a coach's social media account.
  • See if they belong to a professional organisation: It means they have a specific amount of training, have committed to a code of ethics, and regularly update their knowledge base.
