What is life coaching?
Life coaching is a collaborative effort between the client and the coach to identify goals and generate an accountability action to achieve these goals. Life coaching is a completely new concept to some individuals and especially some cultures. My unique skill is to ask powerful questions that will help go under the surface to discover the underlying issues the client may be facing.

What is the difference between a therapist and a life coach?
A counselor usually is problem-focused and a coach is solution-focused. The main difference that I feel that needs mentioning is that the therapist is diagnostic and provides treatment but a coach assists the client in finding answers to the problems, which makes it very meaningful to the client. A coach can also play the role of a motivator in increasing productivity in a career or business.
