is coaching different from therapy?

helps a client clarify their future path and helps them succeed.
is a process that a patient engages in to remediate a "disorder".
Therapy is concerned with the underlying factors of the disorder -- medical
background, family of origin, all-or-nothing thinking, low self-esteem, etc. A
patient has a problem or deficit that needs help. As such, it is
considered a health care related activity that may be reimbursable by health
insurance. Coaching is an educational and personal growth process
unrelated to the health care industry.
do I get started?
begin by interviewing one or more prospective coaches until you find a coach
with whom you feel comfortable and confident can help you reach your
goals. Then schedule a complimentary initial coaching consultation on the
phone with an ACP
coach. Coaching takes place either in person or on the phone. This
is negotiated between the coach and client. If you want to proceed, your
coach will send you a coaching contract that records the mutually agreed to
conditions of your engaging your coach. It includes fees, methods of
payment, confidentiality and other agreements necessary to make your coaching
relationship a successful, growth producing experience.
