The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment. Key words in ICF's definition are partnering, thought-provoking, and maximize potential. The value of a coach lies in his or her ability to serve as an insight-provoking partner, supporting the client to design his or her own act for sustainable strategies for success and development.

The difference of a Coach, Mentor and Therapist?

When working professionally this different profession doesn't compete with each other. People can confuse coaching with mentoring, or therapy, and a professional coach draws a firm line between these disciplines. Coaching is not to be seen as taking the place of these other professions, nor is it in conflict with them.
Therapy is primarily for the purpose of diagnosing and healing mental illness or helping a person who is depressed. Coaching, on the other hand, supports fully functioning and healthy individuals in making changes in their life and moving forward with intentional action. Coaching work strictly towards a target/ goal in the future for healthy people. But therapy and coaching can also complement each other when the timing is right and the client it is back and mentally stable.

A mentorship can be an association between equally experienced but with knowledgeable people in different areas, where the mentor is a support in a certain area, such as reorganization or terminations. And it can also be a relationship between a more experienced person and a less experienced person in order to get information and support in a specific mentor program designed to help and develop the person in their goals, visions and ideas. 
Mentors need to be different for different people and different phases. Sometimes a mentor must dare to be the one who gives you honest constructive criticism, who asks you difficult questions about where you are going and asks you to think through your business idea again and again. A mentor should be a support, a safe confidential space, a source of experience and knowledge and also a tough communicator of messages that sometimes have to be heard.
