What’s the difference between coaching and counseling?
- Counseling is for mental health issues, crisis, or trauma. Counseling approaches problems by looking to the past and what needs to be healed in order to move forward, helps a client stabilize mental health issues so they can manage in healthy ways in life, work, and relationships, or helps a client work through trauma or crisis.
- Coaching helps functioning, healthy individuals or parents with a current problem or issue in which they feel stuck and helps them move forward.
- As a parent coach, Brenda helps you understand the developmental stage our child is in, gives you tools and strategies to help you as a parent be a more understanding, effective, compassionate parent with the problems or struggles you are facing. Brenda will give you a vast wealth of wisdom, resources, and strategies from her experience and training as a counselor, school counselor, educator, and parent of four. She’ll help increase your confidence as a parent while also understanding your children’s current needs.
