There are many reasons why an individual may require support with their psychological wellbeing. There is a broad continuum of needs that must be considered at the individual level, from performance related challenges at work and the everyday management of psychological fitness, to the more complex mental health issues requiring intensive therapy-based support.
It is crucial to ensure clear distinctions are made around what constitutes coaching, and what constitutes therapy. The main distinctions lie within:
• the coaching relationship
• the coach-client interaction
• boundary management
• not working with any mental health problems (within the coaching sphere)
