How is Coaching Different from Counselling or Consulting? 

Coaching is not counselling, which tends to focus on the past nor is it consulting which generally involves coming up with expert opinions and answers.  However, coaching does use techniques derived from clinical psychology and many coaches have developed expertise in multiple areas including counselling


Coaching is action-oriented and solution-oriented and focuses primarily on both the present and future.  The "answers" that you are looking for come about through the work done in joint coaching partnerships; this is the reason most coaches encourage clients to commit to multiple session to maximise results and create accountability.
