The Relationship Catalyst’s take on coaching vs therapy

Updated: Oct 8, 2020

I often get asked the difference between coaching and therapy and although the two are very different, it seems their purposes are easily collapsed.


Therapy is very beneficial and can help people distinguish many insights from their past. There are all different types of therapies and you can read about them in this link from Wikapedia - The methods are endless. One line in the aforementioned line I found quite interesting was;

"The English word therapy comes via Latin therapīa from Greek: θεραπεία and literally means "curing" or "healing".[1]

A client may feel cured or healed during a session however coaches are not therapists or doctors and healing an ailment from the past is not the main objective, even though it may be one of the results produced.


In coaching, the main goal is to produce a result. Now, that being said, we may deal with a past event in order to help you break free and move forward towards your goals or discuss a traumatic event that has happened in your life but it’s not the main focus and no diagnosis is made. The main focus is having you in action moving closer to what it is you want.

One of the main differences between therapy and coaching is that you could be in therapy for years dealing with one or multiple issues in your life and there would be nothing wrong with that. It's healthy. I myself have participated in many different types of therapy throughout the years.

If you want freedom, confidence, and to learn how to talk to men or women that you are interested in, relationship coaching could be a great option for you. In the relationship catalyst program, you are taught how to control the automatic need to react to triggering situations as you progress through the dating process. Results and activities are specifically developed for you and around your goals in the dating world which means no two programs are alike. There is a structure of course, but each person has specific needs when figuring out how to be in a relationship and that is where you can get the most value.
