Counseling vs. Coaching vs. Consulting

Counseling (therapy) deals with healing a client’s past in order for them to live a whole life. This process requires full client participation and emphasis on the past and being in the present.

Consulting deals with an assessment by an expert of a situation or problem and a recommendation for implementation by the client. The client is not required to participate in designing the resolution of the situation or problem.

Coaching is a professional service which assumes clients to be whole creative, resourceful and competent while the client designs choices they wish in their lives. Coaching provides clients with feedback, insights and guidance from an outside vantage point in full support of the client’s agenda.
