In Australia, the title of “coach” is unregulated. That is, anyone is able to call themselves a coach without requiring any base level of training or qualifications. As such, skill level and quality of coaches can vary considerably. In contrast, Psychologists require a minimum of 6 years training in order to use the title of Psychologist. Psychologists are seen as experts in human motivation, behaviour, thoughts and change. As the discipline of Psychology is regulated and a science based discipline, the strategies and techniques employed in the field must be evidence-based. This makes Psychologists ideally suited to be effective coaches.

While there is some overlap between the a career coach and a mentor, a career coach acts more as a facilitator in the coaching process. A good coach aims to ask questions designed to elicit insight which helps the person being coached to come to their own conclusions or form their own solutions to their career challenges. A mentor, on the other hand tends to provide specific advice and wisdom to the person they are mentoring based on their own areas of expertise.
