Therapy Verses Coaching
(Based on Pat Williams work)
Coach focusses more on HOW.
Coaching clients are empowered to take action by resourcing what needs to happen towards a goal, instead of why we feel or experience a thought, emotion or event.
Therapist positions themselves as an expert in relation to a patient.
Coach positions as the co-creator and partner where the client and coach are equals and the client is leader.
Orientation of therapy is the inner world of client.
Orientation in coaching is more focused on outcome and action. Through coaching inner goals are created while taking action in outer world.
- Therapist responsible for process, direction and outcomes in therapy.
- In coaching the client responsible for results. Coach doesn’t make the decisions instead to be the guide.
- Therapist has a more formal relationship with client.
- Coach has a more casual relationship with their clients. Coach will speak from their own life experience with clients in a natural way.
