Teens - Coaching or Teens Counselling?

Coaching or Counselling?

The boundary between Life Coaching and Counselling is not always well-differentiated, and yet they are two completely different approaches to solving life's problems.

The Counselling approach begins with the assumption that a definite problem exists, which must be solved for the person to be healed.

Coaching on the other hand, begins with a vision for the near future and works to set goals to plan and take action to realize that vision.

While there may be some problems preventing a person from reaching their goals, Coaching does not begin with presenting a problem.

Teens Counselling vs Teens Coaching


2015-05-22 09-28-40



A good rule of thumb to choose between Coaching and Counselling is to assess your current needs in terms of trauma, or the lack of it.

Is a previous traumatic experience preventing you from focusing on your goals?

Do you want to be healed of the effect of some previous relationship problem?

If yes, you may want to seek Counselling. However, if you desire more from life in general through Personal and Professional Development,

better time management and social skills, you should seek the assistance of a Life Coach



The goals you set up with the help of a Coach will be measurable and results will be mostly visible – you will be able to "see" the change.

The goals set by your Counsellor may not always be visible since they are typically directed at changing internal thoughts and emotions.

The Coach will take you towards the future – work with you to help you reach the goal of a better future.


The Counsellor explores the triggers and origins of your problems and will take you through your past to confront the problems from where they originated.

Your Coach will share a more personal relationship with you, sharing his/her own experiences.


Coaches can double as counsellors, if they have a relevant Master's degree and mental-health license, for comprehensive Personal and Professional Development

It is only natural for teens and young adults to require additional help in putting their life together.

They have a lot of big decisions to make and important things to do at a young, inexperienced age.

Getting overwhelmed or fearing a loss of control is common.

The early years lay a foundation for future success and growth and must be handled with extreme care and this is why we offer comprehensive teens and young-adult coaching.

The young-adults and teens coaching instructors at Let's-Live Coaching are driven with passion to empower you so that you realize and utilize your full potential.

You will be able to ensure all-round development in the present, while preparing for a better future with help from a Let's-Live Life Coach.


You will be able to set goals, design and implement strategies, find you inner strength and motivation, improve skills, even develop new ones and achieve your vision for the future.


This is not to undermine Teens Counselling.


Teen and Young Adult Counselling offers pragmatic solutions to trauma-based problems, but focuses more on emotional healing.


Once you are healed and feel confident in working towards achieving life's goals, your Coach will help you do so.
