Background

Life coaching emerged from a fusion of the ideas of 20th century pioneering psychotherapists, including Alfred Adler, Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers, and the concepts of business leaders, including Dale Carnegie and Peter Drucker. Life coaching began as a formal profession in the 1950s called "business coaching," focused on helping corporate managers improve their performance, according to Vikki G. Brock's history of life coaching, "Grounded Theory of the Roots and Emergence of Coaching." The term "coach" was borrowed from its traditional sports context. In the 1980s, business coaches became known as "executive coaches." As late as 1990, there were no life coach professional associations and only three life coach training schools existed. Since 1990, the life coaching field has expanded dramatically. By 2008, 16 professional associations and 273 training schools served the life coach movement.

Coaching is not therapy

Therapy traditionally is treatment to cure behavioral or emotional problems such as trauma, depression, anxiety, even serious mental illness, so people can live functional, good lives. The word literally means, 'curing, healing'. In therapy, the healing may require fixing problems; dealing with issues in the past, analyzing behavior to resolve a specific problematic feeling or belief...focusing on 'why' something happened. Like therapy, coaching acknowledges the past but more importantly, coaching is always about moving the client forward, from where they are presently, to where they want to be in the future. Coaching is solution focused. We work on the 'how'...getting results with specific strategies and goals.Contrary to therapy, coaches see opportunities to be developed, not problems to be fixed. Coaching is an active, invigorating process assisting you to reach your potential, challenging and supporting you, seeing what is working well for you and promoting that success so you can achieve miraculous and logical results.
