Coaching vs Counselling

💭 I used to think life coaches are people who get paid to tell others what to do with their lives even though I have personal friends who are certified coaches. It wasn’t until I met a career coach through work that I really got a better understanding of what it’s about, and how it’s different from therapy or counselling.

👨🏻‍🏫 Today I’ve invited Mac Ling from Coaching Collective in Hong Kong who also happens to be my coach, to give us a quick overview of the key differences between coaching and counseling. If you need to deal with stuff from your past, don’t let fear of the unknown hold you back, go look for help; and if you want to start looking ahead at how you can get where you want to be, go for it too!
