Self-improvement isn't one-size-fits-all with Daicy
Today is extra special because we've got Daicy, one of my amazing clients, here to share her journey and discuss why coaching might be a better fit for some folks than traditional therapy.
Daicy started coaching in August during a transitional phase in her life. She'd previously tried therapy, but this time, she was looking for something action-oriented and results-driven.
She mentioned how coaching delves into aspects like the inner child, which she never explored in therapy. It's all about everyday life and personal narratives. Finding the right fit, be it a therapist or a coach, is vital.
