Is A Blended Coaching Approach Best?

Traditionally, coaching and therapy have been seen as two distinct approaches to helping people make positive changes in their lives. Coaching is widely recognised as being one of the most powerful ways in which personal and professional growth can be supported and this applies equally to whole teams as it does to individuals. At Sixth Sense Consulting we believe in a blended approach can sometimes be best.
The usual assertion is that coaching focuses on helping people achieve specific goals or outcomes, such as career advancement, improving relationships, or developing new skills. Coaches are seen as using a structured, goal-oriented approach to help clients identify and work towards their desired outcomes. Coaching may also involve providing feedback, encouragement, and accountability to help clients stay on track.



Therapy, on the other hand, has been regarded as a form of mental health treatment that is designed to help people address psychological and emotional issues, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, or relationship problems. Therapists use a range of evidence-based techniques to help clients identify and work through their problems.

A blended approach

Our argument is that there is a huge overlap and in the words of one practitioner, a “fertile void” in which the past and the future meet. We’d also argue that’s what makes our coaches different: they are a blend of business psychologists, coaches and therapists: equally skilled in helping clients formulate and meet their goals and in exploring what might be holding them back.
We are individual and team coaches. If you would like to book an informal discussion contact Chris or Jackie
