OK I won't say you're wrong. But I think you're talking apples and oranges. You're promoting life coaching on a board for discussion of psychotherapy. They are two different things. They have different goals, and different concepts behind them.

I have the impression that you think you have unique new knowledge that therapists and therapy clients are just too closed-minded to accept. What I hear you saying is that your ideas are just too unfamiliar, too new, too success-oriented for us to take in. If that is your thinking, well can you see how you might have a high probability of offending some people? It can sound like 'if you disagree with me, that shows that my ideas are too advanced for you.' It gives the listener a choice between agreeing with you, or being called slow.

It appears to me that you are determined to convince us that life coaching concepts are superior to psychotherapy concepts. I don't know why you would try to do that here, with a bunch of therapy clients. I wonder what you are needing from us. Are you needing to feel better about your choice of profession? If so, then wouldn't it be more effective to talk to some other people who are enthusiastic about life coaching instead of a bunch who are pretty much committed to psychotherapy?

Are you needing to wage a heroic battle against the ignorant masses whom you believe are in need of a savior? If so, well that seems like quite a task to set out for yourself, a mere struggling human. A person with that agenda might be setting themself up for interpersonal conflict and disappointment.
