You are advised that there are clear boundaries surrounding the responsibilities between coaching and psychotherapy, counselling, or other medical treatments in psychology and psychiatry. Specifically, coaching involves providing education and guidance to those seeking to learn and implement a self-directed discovery process respecting their own lives. However, it is important to understand that this is different than psychotherapy, counselling, or other medical treatments in psychology and psychiatry. While both utilize knowledge of human behaviour, motivation and behavioural change and interactive techniques, the major differences are in the goals, focus, and level of professional responsibility. Psychotherapy, counselling, or other medical treatments in psychology and psychiatry are health care services and are usually reimbursable through health insurance policies and require licensed health care professionals with accredited training to render. This is not true for coaching. The focus of coaching is the development and implementation of strategies to reach client-identified goals of enhanced performance and personal satisfaction. Coaching utilizes personal strategic planning, values clarification, brainstorming, motivational skills, and other similar techniques. However, coaching does not encroach into the areas involving the use of skills that only licensed professionals are permitted to deliver. Coaching does not diagnose or treat mental health disorders. It is your responsibility to manage your own mental health, including obtaining necessary exams and ongoing support as needed. Coaching should be seen as a supplement to such a support system but not as a replacement for it.
In situations where you are under the care of a professional counsellor or medical practitioner and conflict arises between the recommendations of those professionals and your coach, you have the responsibility to follow the guidance of the professionals.
