Counseling (or therapy) has been the traditional means of looking for a deeper understanding of our thought patterns, beliefs, and habits for many years.

Coaching is a relatively new option that is now available worldwide and has grown tremendously. The International Coaching Federation states that "between 2015 and 2019, the number of professional coaches worldwide increased by 33% globally and 33% in North America."
