Choosing Counseling Over Coaching
Choose counseling with a counselor who has lived your pain rather than a coach who has training but cannot relate to your suffering.

Counseling or Coaching
Making the Choice
Randi G. Fine, Empathic Counselor
Everywhere we turn we see someone advertising themselves as a professional “Life Coach.” It certainly seems to be one of the most popular careers of the twenty-first century. Harvard Business Review reports that coaching is a $1 billion dollar a year industry.
Life Coaches are trained to partner with their clients in a process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Many coaches are highly effective in helping others achieve those goals. Many are influential, gifted speakers and powerful motivators.
With my passionate desire to help ease others’ journeys through life, I seriously considered training to be a life coach. I thought that coaching was the next logical path to take in my career. However, the more I learned about the coaching profession, the more dissuaded I was from joining it; it did not seem to be the right “fit” for me.
My ability to help others is a gift I was born with. I have the natural, empathic ability to understand others’ emotional pain, and a trustworthy connection to the source of spiritual wisdom that can guide them towards healing that pain. No amount of training can teach someone how to do that.
In the course of my 50+ years on this Earth, the Universe demonstrated the plans it had for me to help others many times. It presented many adverse opportunities for my life training. It purposefully honed my expertise by placing many difficult hurdles in my path, and infused me with the courage and knowledge to jump them. To this day I continue to be an avid student of life.
I am honored to be entrusted with this gift; one that I know I am meant to share. Nothing fulfills me more than being a faithful messenger of hope for others.
Over the years, through my guidance (a gift that I take no credit for) and the support that I lovingly offer, many have found hope in seemingly hopeless situations; many have healed their painful emotional wounds.
It is important that we all understand the greater purpose behind our struggles. When pain and adversity enter our lives it may seem as if we are being punished for something. That is a common misconception and one that is untrue. Challenges are opportunities put before us to help us grow. Though that may be a difficult concept to grasp when we are hurting, the truth is that pain is the impetus for personal growth. Every time we face and rise above life’s challenges we grow and become better people.
Each of us has the courage and tenacity within us that is needed to overcome our personal hardships. We all have the ability to do it on our own; we just get stuck sometimes. That’s when we need guidance. That’s where I come in.
No one understands your pain more than someone who has lived it. I have lived it. If you are ready, I can help. Even more importantly, I want to help.
All guidance is done by telephone and in the privacy of your own home. The fee is easily affordable, and you may call from anywhere in the world, as long as you speak English. Know that everything you share with me will be held in the strictest confidence.
Why waste another day in pain? Let’s work together so you can have the happiness you deserve.
