A life coach might help too. They focus on the future and not the past as therapists do.
Actually, registered and well-trained therapists are very much focused on helping clients work through and solve current problems and issues and help clients generate and clarify their personal goals.
I would question whether a life coach is trained or qualified to help suicidal clients develop safety plans for the here-and-now. Actively suicidal clients should be referred to local community mental health services for their safety and wellbeing. Perhaps after a workable safety plan is in place and the client develops hope for their future, a life coach might be helpful. But seeking a life coach to address suicidal ideation is not a good - or safe - idea.
