Professional Coaching vs. Psychiatric Care

People who do not have an identified or active psychiatric illness, but who are struggling with the Typical Issues listed below would benefit from Professional Coaching.

People with an identified and active psychiatric illness require psychiatric care and should request a referral for a psychiatric assessment from their Family Physician.

Both often present with stress, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, sleep issues, physical symptoms like irritable bowel, insomnia, concentration issues.

Professional Coaching

Stress management, burnout, work-life balance, efficiency issues, interpersonal issues or personal stressors interfering with work related productivity.

Desire for self-actualization.

Targeted assessment to identify the root of their struggles.

Education and experiential learning of concepts to address root issues.

Addressing the issues contributing to their difficulties

Psychiatric Care

A suspected or identified active psychiatric illness to be treated.

Psychiatric Assessment for diagnostic clarification and treatment recommendations.

Medication recommendations as indicated.

Therapy focused on management of the pathological presentation.

*If someone has seen me for Professional Coaching at any time, I am unable to see them for psychiatric care. Similarly, if someone has seen me as a patient, they are not able to see me for Professional Coaching at any time in the future as it would pose a conflict of interest.

NOTE: Many therapy interventions and principles are also used as educational principles that are taught to attain and maintain wellness. The difference between their use in Professional Coaching versus Therapy is their target and intent (to promote self-actualization vs. manage an illness).
