Psychotherapy and coaching both focus on the individual. While therapy focuses on uncovering and recovering from the past (remedial change), you coach focuses on discovering your innate positive potential, based on your own talents, values, beliefs and strenghts, while creating a compelling future (generative change).
The coaching process is outcome oriented, whereas therapy and counseling are more oriented toward resolving problems and past conflicts.
You cannot change the past. It is a trail that is left behind. What you can and want to change, however, is the meaning, or the way you think about the events in your life.
Our individual coaching programs offer powerful tools and strategies to update and re-evaluate the meaning of (past) events in your life and experiences in the present.
When you change the meaning, by changing the way you think and feel about yourself, others, and the events in your life, you can adopt new and empowering beliefs, skills and strategies to create and ‘real-ize’ (to make real) the results you want now.
Ultimately, development coaching is about increasing your own personal power, by increasing the number choices and options you have to accomplish your goals in life.
Coaching helps you focus on new possibilities rather than problems. It gives you the tools and strategies and processes to accomplish your goals.
