THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

Coaching vs Counselling 

It is important to understand that there is a big difference between counselling and coaching when it comes to getting support for your teen.

The simplest way to understand the difference is in this way:

A counsellor or therapist focuses on troubling issues and dealing with the past events that influenced current behaviour while a life coach focuses on the where your teen is now, where they'd like to be in future and working together to help your teen achieve the desired future outcomes.  One is reactive while the other is proactive.

 

A Counsellor or therapist is often called on when parents are struggling with undesirable changes in their teens behaviour and seeking out help to right the wrong.  

 

But working with a teen life coach is a different solution altogether in that it's a pro-active and co-creative approach to helping a teen navigate adolescence.  Helping your teenager to learn life skills so that they're better equipped to handle the many obstacles and and challenges of early adulthood. 

 

Interestingly, when your teen understands this fundamental difference,  they are more open to working with a coach because they don't view the process as something being wrong with them.

WORKING THROUGH ISSUES LIKE

Most of the teenagers I have worked with love and care deeply for their parents. They are concerned about the effects their own actions are having on the family, yet this side of them is not seen by the parent.

 

I help the teen to understand and reflect on how they ‘show up’ in the world and work with them to set goals and build aspirations in line with their parents expectations - bridging the gap between parent and teen.
