Life Coaching is not same as counseling/therapy. A therapist focuses on your mental health, while a life coach focuses on your mindset.
A therapy session would help you find relief when you are unsettled. However, a coach is someone who would challenge your attitude and beliefs so as to bring out the best in you.
Generally speaking, coaching is more focused on helping you create a future you desire, while psychotherapy tends to have more of a past and present focus. That being said, many coaches should be able to help you understand how the past contributes to your present, and psychotherapists can help you achieve your future goals.
