How is Coaching different from Therapy?
While life coaching can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not asking why but looking forward to creating what. What changes do you want to make that you have been putting off for too long?
What job would better suit you?
What would make your life feel more complete?
What would strengthen your intimate relationships?
What can you do to improve your standing at work?
What would it take to feel organized and on top of your game?
What morning and evening routines would you like to develop?
What can you do to improve your self-care?
"With careful and empathetic listening, Sharon was able to help me pinpoint and prioritize
the most important steps needed to reach my goals and overcome my obstacles.
She has truly become a trusted partner and collaborator and keeps me accountable. Her help is action oriented
so that you can see tangible results. She doesn't sugar coat her words but doesn't make judgements either,
only insightful observations. I have come so far and have Sharon to thank."

While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help you identify your goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills. There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating what you want now and in the future.
"Common challenges, such as time management, organization, goal setting and prioritization are often issues that medication or therapy do not address, whereas the focus of ADHD coaching is on building skills and taking action. Good coaching definitely helps people to improve their business focus, interpersonal skills and ability to get things done in such a way as to lead a more productive, fulfilling and rewarding life."
