Life Coaching and Counseling

Many people prefer seeing a Life Coach or a Counselor. People are afraid to see a “Shrink.” Many people think, “No, that’s for crazy people.” What makes a Psychiatrist special in providing Life Coaching or Counseling is that they are trained to see through your eyes and put themselves in your shoes – and provide objective feedback. 

What makes a Psychiatrist unique at providing life coaching and counseling? A psychiatrist can see what’s happening in your conscious and unconscious mind, but that’s not all. If the psychiatrist/therapist is good, they can also help you accomplish your goals in real time and not just over-analyze. Many people prefer seeing a Life Coach or a Counselor because they are afraid to see a “Shrink” for some reason. Some people might think, “Nope, that’s for crazy people.” Let’s dispel that myth. Dr. Datta is a psychiatrist who can see what’s happening in your blind spot, yet he is very practical in his strategic goal oriented advice. People see him to provide this objective bias free feedback in the fewest sessions possible.

There is a very specific training process that Psychiatrists and Therapists endure to be able to provide this. Psychiatrists and Psychotherapists undergo their own psychoanalysis in order to provide objective feedback to patients. This is on top of the residency, fellowships and years of practice and experience.  Life Coaches have lots of practical experience, which is respectable. Some say that the Li0fe Coach has more “street smarts” or “practical knowledge” than the “book smart” Psychiatrist.  These statements are all true. 

Dr. Datta founded his practice to provide both these services. Psychiatrists don’t need to be in an academic ivory tower and the Life Coach can guide you in becoming more successful as well as have an unconscious vision.
