“Life coaching is a powerful human relationship in which trained coaches assist people to design their future rather than get over their past” (Williams & Menendez, 2015).
“Therapy is about uncovering and recovering, while life coaching is about discovering” (Paterson, 2008).
“Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach’s job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources and creativity that the client already has” (Paterson, 2008).
