Coaching vs. Therapy

"As more people in the public sector begin to realize the great differences between therapy and coaching, and see more and more value in having a partner to promote self discovery and design for better living or better working, the shadow of the therapy stigma will disappear. Coaching will be seen in every organization and group, from the family unit to the largest conglomerates on the planet, establishing itself as the most powerful and effective tool for success in any area, and a springboard to purposeful living." 

Williams, Patrick. "Coaching vs. Psychotherapy", Choice, vol. 2, issue 1, 2015, p. 39.

Typically, a therapist's role is to diagnose & treat mental or emotional problems/disorders, which could take many months, perhaps even years to accomplish, requiring a great amount of resources both in time and money.**

In coaching, the coach's role is to utilize organic, non-directive, therapeutic-based  coaching skills to support & to collaborate with the client in exploring and developing evidence-based solutions.  The coaching process is typically brief (3-6 months) and much less resource focused.
