Life Coaching V. Counseling

A very good question and distinction. As both a professional counselor and a life coach i always tell people who call me for a consultation about the difference. Many people assume they are the same. I would say, there is a great difference and it has a lot to do with the intentional focus on specific goals. Counseling focuses on healing our pain and dealing with personal conflicts. Life Coaching focuses on training and support to achieve personal goals.
