What happens during a coaching session?
Each life coaching session may be different depending on the goals and needs of the person.

Coaching vs Therapy
Life coaching is different than therapy in that its focus is not on the problems of the past. The purpose of life coaching is to help you identify your goals and achieve them. With life coaching, very little emphasis is placed on the past. Instead, our focus is on the future and designing the life that you want now and in the future.
