We are 9 days into 2020...how’s everybody doing? Are you staying the course in your intentions, goals, or resolutions? I know I've already experienced some challenges, but I'm determined to push through! In between Christmas and New Years I wrote about how to accomplish your goals this year. (You may find it helpful to re-read that article here to jump start you on goal setting)
This month we are going to focus on understanding the value a coach can bring to actually accomplishing your goals and meeting those resolutions that you set! So, first up, what’s the difference between a coach and a therapeutic counselor? According to author Jim Paterson of Counseling Today, there are 3 main differences.
Personally, I believe there is a time and a place for both coaching and counseling! That’s why I offer both at our practice. If you have a specific goal in mind - whether it’s career oriented or personal development - then coaching would be perfect. If you’re realizing that “thing” you thought you’d worked through has reared its’ head again, then perhaps it’s time for a counseling session to look at the underlying causes. Whatever approach works for you, I truly hope that 2020 is the year you invest in yourself to accomplish your goals and be whole-person healthy.
