Coaching is an interactive experience where we discover your goals and your passions and use them to help you travel down a path to the life you want.
100%! What happens in our sessions stays in our sessions.
The time that your coaching process will take depends on the complexity of your goals and your commitment and openness to your process.
At Imperfect Pathways, it is first and foremost, about your comfort. Most of our appointments take place via Zoom, however we are happy to meet in person as well. Some examples of where we meet with our clients are coffee shops, public parks, in our office, etc. We are happy to discuss where you would feel most comfortable for our sessions.
A Life Coach is not the same as a therapist.
In short, a therapist can diagnose and treat for trauma in the past. A Life Coach helps you focus on what can be done now and for the future.
Therapy is conducted by a licensed healthcare professional who can help patients confront and cope with a traumatic past, improve their relationships with others (and themselves), and identify, process, and deal with their feelings appropriately. A licensed therapist can also diagnose, monitor, and treat mental health issues.
A life coach isn’t a healthcare professional (unless he or she is separately licensed as one). A life coach helps their clients set goals, hone in on effective behaviors, and overcome specific obstacles like procrastination or minimizing stress, for example. A coach acts as a kind of mentor to help the client focus on what can be changed now and for the future—instead of addressing events that have happened in the past. Coaches can also help their clients come up with actionable steps to accomplish their goals.
Life Coaches and Therapists have similarities. Life coaches often use therapeutic tools, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Therapeutic Art, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), hypnosis, and other psychological techniques with clients. The word “therapeutic” means that it benefits the body or mind and increases well-being. Using these tools is helpful as a coach, however, it is not the same as conducting “therapy” like a therapist.
Both therapists and life coaches focus on creating positive change in their clients’ lives. But only therapists are qualified to diagnose and treat mental health issues.
