LIFE-COACHES: MOTIVATIONAL OR THERAPEUTIC?
A lot of minimally trained people (some "degrees" come from 30-day courses) are taking people's money as motivational "life-coaches". They pump up positive views of their clients, although studies reveal that most people want help with their problems - not a cheerleader.
Are these "life-coaches" really necessary? Could they actually harm people by glossing over/ignoring serious problems? There is already a problem with minimally-trained people calling themselves "Coaches" and trolling the Internet for clients.
