Christian Counseling is an effective therapy concerned with the healing of negative experiences and hurtful events from the past.
Christian Life Coaching is concerned with the pursuance of God-Inspired Goals for a more fulfilled future – in Christ.
Having said that, in my experience, I have found the two disciplines can work well together where there is a desire to move on in life goals but is hindered through emotional damage, unbelief or fear impending fruitful living.
In these cases I have either suggested they seek Counseling or, by the grace of God – where the issue is not overly complicated – I have ministered to them in prayer within the Coaching framework so as to move them on in productive Goal achievement.
I have noticed the healing of past issues comes sooner knowing that they are being healed for purpose.
Christian Life Coaching is a collaborative experience between the Coach, the Client and the Holy Spirit. It seeks to produce Goal-oriented outcomes for a better present and future – in Christ. It is the horse that goes before the carriage; the life plan that drives the vision. It is action-oriented in that it provides a route map towards achieving desired goals.
Christian Counseling, meanwhile, ensures all the parts are functioning well so as to undertake the journey.
