Can I benefit from having a life coach while I’m in therapy ?

Updated: Jul 10

In the journey of personal development and emotional well-being, many individuals seek therapy to address past traumas, mental health issues, and to gain deeper self-awareness. As a therapist, I have witnessed firsthand the transformative power of therapy. However, when therapy is complemented by life coaching, clients often experience an accelerated path to holistic growth and fulfillment in different areas and approaches to their life goals.

Remember ….

Coaching is NOT therapy.

The Benefits of Integrating Therapy and Life Coaching

1. Comprehensive Support: Therapy and life coaching together offer a well-rounded support system. Therapy addresses emotional and psychological healing, while life coaching focuses on future goals, personal development, and practical strategies for achieving success.

2. Enhanced Self-Awareness and Action: Therapy delves into understanding one’s emotions, behaviors, and past experiences. Life coaching, on the other hand, emphasizes taking actionable steps towards achieving goals. This combination enhances self-awareness and empowers clients to take concrete actions towards a fulfilling life.

3. Balanced Approach: Therapy often involves exploring and processing complex emotions, which can be intense and draining. Life coaching introduces a forward-looking and positive perspective, providing a balanced approach that fosters resilience and motivation.

4. Goal Alignment: Life coaches help clients set realistic and achievable goals, while therapy ensures that these goals align with their emotional and mental well-being. This alignment ensures that clients are not only achieving their aspirations but doing so in a way that is sustainable and healthy.

There are several options for getting the right life coach for you.

One organization that exemplifies the power of life coaching is Partners In Change (PIC) in Atlanta.

Partners in Change pairs trained volunteer coaches with adults who are pursuing tangible goals for moving beyond difficult financial constraints or living situations.

Be sure to check out their website and inquire about their life coaching program to see if it’s a good fit for you or someone you may know.
