Health coaches use similar practices as counselors to help guide clients on their wellness journey. Health coaches may ask a variety of questions to gather information and guide clients to choose their own goals for improvement. Unlike counselors and mental health providers, coaches do not diagnose mental illness, they do not prescribe medication nor do they offer medical advice.
Health coaches may not specialize in treating complex mental health problems, however they do help to manage emotions, challenge negative thinking patterns, help clients create goals and provide support towards well-being. In conjunction with health care providers, coaches facilitte behavior change and help clients put changes into action. Many coaches focus on a positive future while counselors may focus on sorting through the past.
We don't recommend one or the other and often times we recommend both. Counselors can help with diagnoses and offer advice for improved well-being and coaches can help implement those changes.
However, if you are looking to improve stress management, work-life balance or want help with your goals, a coach may be the right place to start. Coaches can also help learn actionable ways to address your challenges.
