    • A.

      True

      True

    • B.

      False

    Coaches and therapists are professionals who provide guidance and support to individuals in their respective fields. While mentors and gurus may also offer guidance, they typically have a deeper level of personal connection and spiritual or philosophical teachings.

    Life coaching training teaches you to use elements of many therapies, but this does not qualify you individually in each of them.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Life coaching training provides individuals with the knowledge and skills to incorporate various therapeutic approaches into their coaching practice. However, it does not make them fully qualified or certified in each of these therapeutic approaches. Instead, life coaching training equips individuals with a broad understanding of different therapies, allowing them to integrate elements from these therapies into their coaching sessions to better support their clients. Therefore, the statement that life coaching training does not qualify individuals individually in each therapeutic approach is true.
