Therapy + Coaching

Around 40% of Relationship Hero clients also use therapy. And clients find both services valuable in their own way.

Coaches are different from counselors or therapists. Coaches offer practical advice you can apply right away. For example, if you are newly dating someone and aren't sure how to interpret their cryptic text, you can talk to your coach and they can help you decipher.

Differences Between Coaching And Therapy

Therapists treat mental illness

Therapists are trained to help people who are facing mental illnesses and coaches are not. If you're seeking help for mental health issues, like depression, anxiety or PTSD, please seek out a mental health care professional.

Coaching is more future oriented

Coaching is more focused on helping you achieve your future goals while therapy tends to have more of a past and present focus. The focus of therapy is more on healing from the past while coaching is more on getting you to where you want to be.

Payment

Therapy may be covered by your insurance company while coaching is not.

Accreditation

Practicing therapists require an advanced degree and a state license. Obtaining a license requires passing an exam and a certain number of supervised hours of practice. There are no governing boards for coaches - they do not require specific certifications in order to practice their coaching services. At Relationship Hero, we have our own accreditation process that involves training, supervised coaching and an exam.

Non-Therapy Use Cases

Therapy and relationship coaching often go hand in hand because they complement one another.
