Therapist vs. Coach
When going through a divorce, many people find it helpful to work with a therapist. Therapists tend to focus on helping their clients understand how they got to where they are now, by understanding how their past choices or behaviours led them to today. The idea is to identify and understand past behaviour in order to heal.
Coaching on the other hand, focuses on moving forward. In my coaching sessions, we look at your current situation and we focus on how to propel you forward into where you want to be. We set realistic and attainable goals to help you make clear and sound decisions for your future. If necessary, we work on understanding what your triggers are so that you can effectively manage your emotions and keep these emotions from finding their way into your decision making.
