While coaching and counselling both provide you with a helpful relationship with a person to support your wellness and growth, coaching and counselling differ in a number of ways.

The biggest difference between counselling and coaching is ‘disclosure’. Our coaches are all recovering drug or alcohol addicts. They have been there, done that. They know, first-hand, the challenges many of you face. In a counselling situation, this rarely happens unless such disclosure is considered pivotal to your rehabilitation process. Many people are inclined to open up more about their personal experiences when speaking to a coach.

A counsellor will work with you on emotional and behavioural problems, past trauma, anxiety, or active addiction to drugs or alcohol. Coaches, on the other hand, work with you to find ways to reach specific life goals, e.g. making a plan to change your lifestyle, choose or improve your career, deal with stress, heal or nurture relationships, deal with the world in a more positive way, etc.

In addition, our recovery coaches will help you get to the bottom of what’s important to you, whether it’s career, family, love, religion, the list goes on. Topics covered will include exercise and nutrition, and how to understand and work the 12 Steps.

Coaching goals are measurable, and based on actual results. We will show you practical strategies and work closely with you to move you forward towards the life you want, even if the obstacles seem insurmountable at the start of your drug or alcohol treatment.
