Relationship Coach, Marriage Counselor, Couples Counselor, Couples Therapist…. Many couples searching for help ask for the difference between these different types of professionals.
As the field of helping couples create a better future evolves, so has the training available evolved.
Today the lines between the different categories of professionals are becoming more and more blurred.
You can decide whether you prefer a coach, counselor, or therapist. Your choice might stem from their credentials, their location, or something from their bio that speaks to you.
All well-trained relationship specialists seek to offer advice, feedback, observations, and homework to help your relationship evolve. Therapists and counselors have mandatory educational and licensing requirements that are determined by the state or country in which they practice. Coaches do not.
Counselors and therapists may make situational determinations about how deep to go into the personal history of each partner. They may seek to help you see where certain unhelpful patterns of behavior originated.
No one can change the past, but you can change the impact it has on you. You can learn to free up more of your energy, talents, skills and gifts. Even better, when you harvest the lessons of the past, they can become wisdoms to guide your future – individually and together.
Coaches, on the other hand, tend to focus on the present and creating an inspired future.
