Therapy (also known as psychotherapy, counseling or “Talk therapy”) is similar to coaching in some ways. Both use evidence-based techniques and intentional dialogue as the primary tools for growth and discovery, but there are also key differences between the services:
- Coaching focuses primarily on the present and future, while therapy focuses on the past, present and future.
- Coaching is focused on personal growth and professional development, while therapy is designed to help you work through deeper issues such as anxiety, depression, or trauma.
