I am often asked, “What is life coaching and how is it different from psychological counseling and psychotherapy?” I’m always pleased to be asked this question because I have very strong opinions about the subject. It has been my experience as a practicing psychologist, that life coaching is a modern phenomenon and a method for individuals to seek psychological therapy and counseling without the social stigma often associated with mental health treatment. The practice of life coaching is unregulated and when practiced by unlicensed mental health professionals, is dangerous. Your life and your decisions about your marriage, your career, your parents,your drinking, and your children are serious business. Managing these major life issues are not for the faint of heart and not to be trusted to someone without extensive psychological knowledge and skills.
Our practitioners are actually licensed to practice psychological counseling and psychotherapy. They are actual licensed psychologists, therapists, and counselors. These licensed practitioners also provide life coaching. Life coaching is a “tier two” approach to assisting with major life issues. Psychological counseling and psychotherapy are “tier one” approaches to assisting you with major life issues.
Again, the practitioners at D’Arienzo Psychological Group are not yoga instructors, teachers, preachers, or retired advertising executives that have taken a 20 hour course in life coaching who promote themselves as being skilled to assist you in resolving your serious and major life issues. Managing your life is our life, and we are professionally and competently trained to help you. Please consider us if you are interested in seeking our life coaching services or our psychological counseling services. We welcome the opportunity to serve you with both.
