Why do you need a life coach?
In modern society it became normal to talk about self-care, anxiety, depression and other mental ilnesses.
Especially in times of COVID-19, the depression rate skyrocketed.
A lot of people are seeking mental help.
Judging by my personal experience, I was in need of a life coach myself during the quarantine times. So I hired a personal life coach and even was able to attend a virtual event by Tony Robbins. I’m not going to lie, it really helped with my feelings of uncertainty.
You see, it’s nice to have a mentor and someone holding you accountable to reaching your goals, overcoming your fears, helping you to balance out your relationships with loved ones, and help you move up in your career or business.
Whats the difference between life coach and therapist?
Answering from my own experience, therapy didn’t really help me to overcome my depression. Even antidepressants didn’t help me with my depression. In general, the therapist is there to listen to you and to get to the root of the problem, but he/she doesn’t pressure you on solving the problem. I saw a therapist for about 2.5 years and was taking antidepressants for about that same period of time. It was only when I started to see the life coach and work through my problems using tools provided by my life coach that I stopped taking antidepressants and got out of my depression.
The therapist is there to help you answer on the question “why?”.
The life coach is there to help you answer on the question “What do I do to move on?”
But here are some other differences between a life coach and therapist. Therapists can provide you with a diagnosis and help you with mental difficulties. All therapists are educated with a minimum of a masters degree in psychology and counseling. Therapists are more likely to be covered by insurance (depending on your health insurance plan). Especially if you have a referral from your health provider.
