What should I look for in a coach?

A skilled coach is trained in psychological principles, has years of hands-on supervised experience, and can recognize and discern when a coaching client would be better served by other professionals such as a therapist or physician. Also, a coach should not simply give advice. Opinions are cheap -- and you can find them just about anywhere. Effective coaches help clients clarify their values and awaken dormant motivation in order to live more focused, fulfilled, and satisfying lives.


How is coaching different from therapy?

Simply put, coaching is not therapy. While Dr. Barratt is also a licensed psychologist and psychotherapist, he decided to pursue a coaching practice to fulfill a very distinct need: Many prospective clients are high-functioning individuals looking for a different type of support, guidance, and professional involvement while cultivating a balanced life. These individuals are not suffering from diagnosable mental illnesses, yet they are seeking the support of an objective professional as they work toward optimizing their relationships, career, self-concept, and daily life. Not simply a friend and not a therapist, a skilled coach can provide the structure you need in order to identify and overcome barriers to realizing your potential.
