Seeking an Oasis of Freedom and Hope?

We Can Help

If hope and happiness always seem a tomorrow away,
If too many days end in sadness and a lack of fulfillment,
If your heart and your mind speak different languages,
If love of self and others seems to be beyond your grasp,
If you live in a desert of sadness and loneliness,
but seek an oasis of freedom and hope, we can help.

Buyer Beware: Psychotherapists & Life Coaches Are Not the Same. Caveat Emptor.

 

BUYER BEWARE

Kris Walker, the consummate radio host on Mental Health News Radio, and I discuss the many risks and dangers inherent in seeking mental health or relationship help from unqualified, untrained, uneducated, and inexperienced individuals, many of whom have risen to fame thanks to YouTube.

We also discuss how and why coaches are a valuable resource, but not for one’s significant mental health challenges. Although most life coaches are an exceptional resource for help, as I have sent many of my clients to them, their training and abilities are nothing like that of licensed psychotherapists.

Since there are MAJOR differences in the education, certification, licensing, and training expectations, the two professions are not comparable what so ever. The problem is that many coaches are practicing psychotherapy when they shouldn’t. Their training and certification is very clear about this prohibition.

I have heard many sad stories of people who have been harmed by coaches who were quite skilled at marketing their wares, but less skilled in the actual execution of their helping abilities. I am also aware a great many coaches who have risen to fame through YouTube and blogging, who treat people with psychological problems, when they should be referring them to mental health practitioners.

Many, if not most of the people harmed by over-reaching coaches, have nowhere to go to complain, as there is no regulatory, licensing, or any other state or governmental organizations who oversee this profession, like there is for Masters and Doctoral level psychotherapists.
