Psychotherapy and Coaching Compared

Psychotherapy and coaching sit at either end of a spectrum. Each approach enables you to address the issues that excite, challenge, concern or inhibit you:


  • Typically life-related
  • Focused on current and past themes in living

As a psychotherapist I work with people who want to:

  • Understand their relationships
  • Examine repeating patterns and themes
  • Evaluate their choices in living


  • Typically career-related
  • Focused on current and future projects and goals

As a coach I work with people who want to:

  • Enhance their career
  • Sharpen their skills
  • Deal with work related dilemmas

People who work with me select their preferred approach, knowing that they can move along the spectrum as our work progresses, according to their needs.
