WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?
A ‘life coach‘ is someone who is trained to help you see clearly where you are today, then find ways to move forward towards your goals.
They do not tell you what to do, they are a sounding board to help you discover what it is you want to do.
WHAT IS COUNSELLING?
In general, a ‘counsellor’ is someone who creates a safe and supportive space for you to explore who you are and what you want in life. They help you identify and solve problems.
They are a support system to help you gain the strength and clarity to cope and to move forward at last.
