Editorial Reviews

Life coaching differs from traditional therapy in that the client seeks treatment not to overcome mental illness but rather to maximize his or her potential. This guide for therapists describes how counseling professionals can enter the coaching field while drawing upon the skills they developed in graduate school and professional experience. Coverage includes the differences and similarities between coaching and therapy, setting up coaching agreements with clients, and marketing the coaching practice. Annotation c.
