Creating Without Fear: New Coaching Website

Why do I offer Coaching Services?

Many people do not have diagnosable mental health issues, but would like to increase their level of pleasure or satisfaction in their work or personal lives. Coaching and Psychotherapy are similar, yet differ in a few important respects. For one thing, Coaching does not assume that a person is in any way impaired or needs to be ‘fixed’. While therapy is focused on resolving or learning to better cope with psychological difficulties that would otherwise impair a person’s ability to function in the outside world. In coaching, the relationship between the client and the coach is more egalitarian, and the client bears a greater degree of responsibility for the outcomes they are able to achieve.┬áThe coach is mainly responsible for keeping the client accountable or ‘on track’ in working towards the step by step accomplishment of their own unique goals. While Dr. Parks will teach her coaching clients a number of therapeutic tools that they can practice on their own, she will not technically be providing ‘psychotherapy’. Please see the ICF (International Coaching Federation) website for a more thorough description of the differences between coaching and psychotherapy.
