The Differences

A lot of people ask me: ‘Shelby… are you just a therapist?’
Well, no.. so here are the differences so you can understand what it is you need.

What is Life Coaching?

SIMPLY PUT...

The life coach definition is someone professionally trained to help you maximize your full potential and reach your desired results. They are like a supportive friend and a trusted adviser rolled into one. They’re someone who will push you to achieve your goals, hold you accountable and provide encouragement throughout your journey to become a better version of yourself.

A good life coach will help you reflect. A great one will teach you how to do it yourself.

While the coach will have a deeper understanding of the topic/issue. It is the client’s responsibility to take knowledge and skills and apply them. Every client is unique and starts from a different place. The client will move at their own pace.

  • CONSULTANT

    A Consultant will be hired to manage a product. They provide information in a one-way process using standard solutions. The consultant is responsible for the outcome and requires little commitment to the client.

  • THERAPIST

    A Therapist approaches the client from a medical model, using diagnoses and medication to cure a dysfunction. For example, depression or schizophrenia, a therapist would be able to identify and help the person reduce the symptoms so they can return to their cognitive and emotional baseline.

  • MENTOR

    A Mentor is someone who you go to for advice on how to progress and succeed in the same areas as a mentor.

WHY I BECAME A LIFE COACH

I became a Coach because I understand what it is to feel alone, lost and know that I was meant for more than what I was. I had to take the long and expensive path to really feel freedom, and now that I know what true freedom and happiness are – I want to use what I have experienced to help fast track you amazing people to this feeling too!

The feeling of choosing happiness effortlessly.
The feeling of knowing I am enough.
Just the feeling of knowing who I really am.
