ES true to exercise coaching is not necessary to be a psychologist. But there are who says that when it comes to coaching, is primarily talk of psychology.(5). However, the psychologist is associated with the analysis and treatment of pathologies, while coaching scans and deals with dysfunctions? actually, duality is caused by psychological psychoanalysis principle, since by this Freudian practice, what is sought are defaults in childhood hidden in the unconscious.

Coaching is not with patients. The coach replaced the vertical relationship by a horizontal relationship between trained and coach. Authors like Grant, defined as that process that facilitates the self-directed learning. Others such as Azucena Vega, describe the coaching as an alter ego who helps to get the best out of himself to healthy people. There are even who establishes the relationship between the coaching and the fast food on one side, and psychology with the stew. It is also necessary to say, that specialties as the social psychology or the psychology of organizations provide useful methodology to apply coaching techniques to any activity that requires a degree of productivity (6). 3 THE COACH IS NOT A TEACHER.

The main motto of this conception of coaching is: teaching without indoctrinating, where the other one is the expert.(7) This coach has no answers because the answers lie in the interior of the trained, that it implies or presupposes will have all the wisdom and cognitive resources for owning what you want.(8). At this moment is when Coaching reverses the traditional logic: is the attitude that learns which gives meaning to the taught and are therefore wondering who should collect?(9).
