Counselling, life coaching, psychotherapy, and psychology: What are the differences?

Understanding the difference between counseling, coaching, psychotherapy and
psychology (Clinical / Counseling Psychology) can be confusing. On the surface, what they do seems the same… talking therapy to help people who are experiencing emotional distress or wish to make life changes. The professions are however distinct in terms of the philosophy that informs them, the type and length of training they require, and the professional bodies who regulate and represent them. The types of difficulties practitioners are qualified to work with may depend on their qualification as well as their clinical experience.

In addition to this, all counsellors, coaches, psychotherapists, or psychologists will also have their own ‘modality’, or theoretical-therapeutic model such as humanistic, cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, gestalt or others. Practitioners may be qualified to work in one or a number of modalities, or they may integrate modalities.

Generally, it could be said that counselling and coaching has a relatively shorter training pathway, and practitioner psychologists the longest, integrating original research into training. Psychotherapy training can depend on the modality and which professional body the course is linked to. Practitioner psychologists hold a protected title and are government regulated by the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council), while other psychological therapies are not regulated, however follow the ethical codes of practice of their professional bodies. All fully qualified practitioners have a minimum of 450 supervised hours of seeing clients one-to-one before they become fully registered/accredited with their respective professional bodies.
