Coaching versus Psychotherapy
There are some similarities between coaching and psychotherapy, but we do not conduct psychotherapy with our coaching clients. Although both coaching and psychotherapy use knowledge of human behavior, motivation, behavioral change, and interactive counseling techniques, there are major differences in the goals, focus, and level of professional responsibility. Because of these differences, the roles of coach and psychotherapist are often in potential conflict, so we believe that it is ethically inappropriate, under most circumstances, for us to play both roles with a client. In some situations, we may recommend that you enter psychotherapy as a condition of continuing coaching.
Coaching is a professional relationship and we will make sure to maintain our professional boundaries during and after our work together. Considerable experience shows that when boundaries blur, the hard-won benefits gained from the coaching relationship are endangered.
In order to honor and protect the coach's intellectual property, the client agrees not to disclose or communicate information about the coach's materials, written articles, or methods to any third parties without express permission.
