Clients sometimes ponder the differences between Coaching, Mentoring and Counselling.  All three ‘talking’ activities offer valuable support.  Many of the skills required are similar, so it can be difficult to provide a clear definition.  At a high level, the differences may be described as follows:

Mentoring

Mentors mainly draw on their own past experience, and skills in their given field, to support and give advice to someone in a similar job or scenario.

Coaching

Trained Coaches facilitate clients in finding their own solutions. Ultimately the person being coached decides what action to take or changes to make, to accomplish set goals over a defined time period.  Clients are encouraged to learn through the process, rather than be told what to do.

Counselling

Counselling and Psychotherapy are ‘talking therapies’ delivered by qualified practitioners.  Practitioners often look to the immediate or distant past to explore how various life events, relationships and ways of thinking/ behaving may have shaped current difficulties.  Refer to www.bacp.co.uk for further information.
