Monarch Therapeutic Services, LLC
The Coaching orientation is prospective and goal-oriented. Coaching focuses on untapped potential, and critical success factors in a whole person who seeks to maximize his or her fulfillment in life and work.
Clients are perceived as experts in their own right and the coaching work focuses on untapped present possibilities in order to link awareness to action.
In the coaching relationship, coaches are more likely to initiate topics for discussion and to step into a session with ideas and suggestions. Coaching interactions and boundaries are active, informal, and self-disclosing.
Coach/client collaboration is structured, task-focused, and involves concrete action plans designed to move clients toward their defined goals.
Coaching services are available to adolescents and adults ages 16 and older, in individual sessions or group venues.

Coaching vs. Therapy
The fundamentals of life coaching are what distinguishes it from therapy. Life coaches do not diagnose the people they work with, while therapists determine illnesses and pathologies so their patients can be clinically treated. Therapists analyze their client’s past as a tool for understanding present behaviors, whereas life coaches simply identify and describe current problematic behaviors so the client can work to modify them. In other words, therapists focus on “why” certain behavioral patterns occur, and coaches work on “how” to work toward a goal.
When you look at a life coach vs. a therapist’s practice, it’s important to recognize that therapists help clients explore and understand their subconscious and unconscious mind. Their goal in this exploration is a deep understanding of behaviors and patterns. Life coaches focus on an individual’s actions and results. Life coaches measure their client’s success with key performance indicators and specific behavioral outcomes and goals.
Therapy and life coaching do share certain traits and aims. However, whether you choose to work with a life coach or therapist, both work to enable clients to make positive changes in their lives and become more productive. While therapists diagnose and treat from a healthcare perspective, not all therapy clients are ill; many healthy people seek the services of both therapists and life coaches. Therapists may at times work with specific results in mind, such as the cessation of a particular problematic behavior.
Despite occasional areas of overlap, the work and processes of therapists and life coaches are distinct. Life coaching is a solution-focused collaborative process in which the coach helps the client achieve personal, relationship, or professional goals.
Coaches use a number of tools, techniques, and processes designed to help the client find what drives them, where they want to go, and the best way to get there. The relationship builds on the foundation of trust and grows through various stages. They are:
~ Establishing rapport
~ Assessing priority areas
~ Identifying stuck / problem areas
~ Establishing and defining goals
~ Defining the steps needed
~ Making the commitment to achieve the set goals
~ Measuring progress
~ Holding accountability for success
~ Celebrating success
