Ep #124: The difference between coaching and therapy

February 24, 2021

Have you wondered what is the difference between coaching and therapy or tried to determine which would be best for your family?

In this episode, we discuss the difference between coaching and therapy and how you can determine your child's needs.

Therapy is focused on healing from mental health issues and the difficult emotions you're feeling because of your mental health issues. Mental health issues include the diagnosis such as depression, anxiety, Autism, trauma,  and PTSD. A therapist is someone who is licensed to address these specific issues.

On the other hand, a coach is someone you go to when you want to get unstuck and set achievable goals. A coach helps you replace unhealthy or unsuccessful habits with new ones.

Both coaching and therapy can be beneficial to your child. Many parents will do both coaching and therapy as a way to address difficulties more comprehensively.

The goal in deciding between coaching, therapy, or both is to determine what would be the best course of action to address what your child struggles with. 

Smarter Parenting only provides coaching. When you sign up for a coaching session, you will learn how to implement the Teaching-Family Model's behavior skills to address specific behavior issues by getting a tailored plan specific to your family's needs.
