About Ashley Cross
What's the Difference Between Career Coaching & Career Counseling?
What They Have in Common
In both of these approaches, clients examine negative beliefs and way to counter them;
build self-compassion skills; expand their support systems; explore and research potential next steps; and navigate through systemic barriers.
How Are They Different?
Career Coaching is...
Action-oriented, solution-focused, and emphasizes the present/future.
Goal-specific, educational, and holds clients accountable for their progress.
Focused on exploring career options, navigating through the job search, & managing other career transitions.
The coach-client relationship can be socially oriented. It's acceptable to connect online via social media (i.e. LinkedIn) or meet in public settings (i.e.
at a coffee shop). It is also appropriate for coaches to work with clients, regardless of where they are located in the US or in the world.
Mental Health Counseling is...
Process-oriented and often emotion-focused.
Often focused on the past to address more internalized issues/patterns that are affecting your wellness and life.
A great way to work on a variety of issues outside of the scope of career coaching, including marriage/family therapy, relationship issues, child therapy, trauma therapy, etc.
Mental health counseling must adhere to both HIPAA and state/federal regulations. Due to the deep and confidential level of work, counselors/therapists should meet with clients in a confidential environment. Most counselors cannot meet with clients in public settings or connect with them personally on social media due to the need for strict boundaries. Therapists can also only work with clients within the state(s) they are licensed.
