Counsellor & Life Coach


Counselling or Life Coaching ?

Counselling or life coaching can often be misunderstood as only being for those people who have specific problems that they are struggling to deal with. Counselling or life coaching is a useful tool which all types of people can benefit from.


Not only is counselling or life coaching useful for specific problems that one may be struggling with, but it is also very useful for anyone who would simply like an objective, unbiased view of their life and the decisions they make.

If you need assistance in dealing with personal problems, receiving guidance on specific decisions, or simply would like assistance with setting and reaching goals, then counselling or life coaching may be suitable for you.


Life coaching specifically can be useful to assist people with personal development goals such as trying to become healthier, having goals towards work related decisions or simply changing behaviors that hinder one’s development.
