COACHING focuses more on individual progress, highlighting strengths and helps re-wire thinking patterns that keep you stuck. Coaching varies from psychotherapy in that it is more fast-paced, quicker to be action oriented, and for those who already have done work on themselves in regards to core wounds, stuckness, strengths, and weaknesses. Coaching does not address underlying mental health conditions or diagnosis that are included in the DSM-V. Coaching tends to be more short-term, highly focused, directive and externally goal oriented. It is for the perfectionist, high-achiever, and self-motivator, who is relatively high functioning in areas of life, yet is still somehow getting in their own way.
