Coaching is a forward-looking, solutions-focused art and practice to enable individuals, groups and organizations achieve their goals.
For some however, the ability to concentrate on their future is limited or downright impossible at given times in their lives. Often there is a disruptive, painful event in one’s past or even ongoing trauma requiring counseling, not coaching. That doesn’t mean everyone in counseling is not capable of being successfully coached.
If one is in counseling and considering coaching, I’d suggest broaching the subject with their counselor. The counselor might even be trained in coaching which is a very different practice than counseling.
