This is asked a lot and the differences are huge! But to simplify it, here is what each profession works on:
The Psychiatrist: While a psychiatrist does have a deep understanding of the mechanics of the mind, their focus is more on the physiological chemistry of your body and how it affects your mental well-being.
The Therapist: Their focus is completely on the mind and how the past and present behavior has affected its mental state.
The Life Coach (that’s me!): A life coach’s focus is on the heart and empowering that heart to move the entire body forward into the future through self-love.
Could a client benefit from having all three in their life? If needed, absolutely. But my goal is to help you strengthen your heart so that we can work from the bottom up and (hopefully) heighten your mind to its full emotional clarity!
And just a quick joke about therapy:
How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?
Only one. But the light bulb has to want to change. 🙂
