Insight therapy is a general term used to describe a group of therapies addressing a person's behavior, thoughts and
emotions which lack clarity. Typically the person does not understand what motivates them.
The goal of insight therapy is to help an individual discover the reasons and motivation for their behavior, feelings, and
thinking so that they may make appropriate changes and thus improve their living a productive life, feeling and believing
they are in charge.

Life coaching draws upon a variety of tools and techniques from other disciplines such as sociology,
psychology, Neuroscience, positive adult development and career counseling with an aim towards helping
people identify and achieve personal goals. Specialty life coaches may have degrees and may have
studied psychological counseling, hypnosis, dream analysis, divination, marketing, Neuro Linguistic
Programming, Affirmations, Auditing and other areas relevant to providing guidance.
Professional coaching uses a range of communication skills (such as targeted restatements, listening,
questioning, clarifying etc.) to help clients shift their perspectives and thereby discover different solutions
to achieve their goals. These skills are used when coaching clients in any field. In this sense, coaching is a
form of 'meta-profession' that can apply to supporting clients in any human endeavor, ranging from their
concerns in personal, professional, sport, social, family, political, spiritual dimensions, etc.
