No, coaching is not therapy.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, among other forms of therapy, may be indicated for individuals on the autism spectrum. In those cases, coaching should be used as a supplement to, not a replacement for, therapy.
The autism coach is the facilitator in a collaborative relationship with the client. Coach and client work as equals in the relationship to explore and develop solutions to issues chosen by the client. Coaches do not give advice. Instead, they facilitate the client's self-mastery so the client's solutions lead to meaningful and lasting change.
By creating a safe space for you to explore, the autism coach uses proven skills in active listening and powerful questioning to help you create awareness, set and refine goals, design actions, and manage your progress.
