umm... life coaching?

Coaching vs. Therapy

Dr. Martha Beck* equates life coaching with a personal trainer for your life.

She explains that when you are physically ill, you work with a doctor to regain your health. When you are physically healthy and want to take your body to peak performance, you may consult a personal trainer.

Similarly, if you are experiencing issues with your mental health, you may want to consult a licensed therapist or psychologist however, if you want to experience more satisfying and meaningful life experiences – such as improving your career, relationships, or work/life balance – then hiring a life coach is a great way to go... or you could just keep listening to the voices in your head and your friends but how has that been working for you?
