What is the Difference between a Therapist and a Life Coach?

JRNI Coaching, the community and training-provider of more than 1,500 coaches, will help you decide whether you should contact a therapist or a life coach.

Whether you’re considering joining one of these professions, or just looking to hire the right practitioner to meet your current needs, it’s useful to understand what sets each of these modalities apart. Click here to continue reading…
