Counseling: Counseling is longer-term in comparison to coaching. It includes diagnosing and resolving problematic beliefs, behaviors, relationship issues, feelings, and sometimes physical responses. Counseling can focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships and work through painful feelings. They are helping people address significant psychological problems and issues and resolve problems that make them feel bad emotionally or impair their ability to function well. Connecting to Greatness exclusively practices evidence-based therapies, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and others.
Coaching: Every client is unique, but coaches typically recommend at least one year of coaching. The first quarter or so of the sessions are used to identify limiting beliefs. The next three to six months are used to develop patterns to overcome those limiting beliefs. Thereafter is to help you make those patterns second nature, part of your regular habits that you practice daily. Coaching can help clarify your purpose, become an effective leader, achieve health and fitness goals, and ignite passion in your relationships. Coaching is positive, present, and future-focused, offering direct feedback, structure, and accountability.
