The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A personal development coach can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself.
Furthermore, our sessions are completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “family, friends or church relationships knowing your business.”
Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, and you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.
