If you would prefer to understand how you can move forward or redirect your life in a more focused manner, you might prefer coaching to counselling.
Counselling tries to understand what happened and why you might make the choices you do, whilst coaching looks at how you can focus your energies towards a desired future. It can also help you to decide how that future might look. Coaching is more 'homework' driven and cannot proceed unless exercises have been done between sessions. It is usually undertaken in blocks of six sessions.
Sometimes, issues do arise from coaching which leads someone to delve deeper and seek counselling. Should this happen, we will negotiate a new contract with this in mind.
