Coaching & Counselling


The coaching and counselling process is, in many ways, an educational experience. The individual can learn more about him/herself, but also acquires new skills to help them deal more effectively with challenges they are facing.

Who do we help?

Our experienced life coaches and counsellors can offer a wide range of support including, but not limited to:

  • Giftedness
  • Self-identity, self-worth and self-actualisation
  • Planning, time management and other executive functioning skills
  • Motivation and goal setting
  • Bullying
  • Communication and relationships
  • Work/life balance
  • Depression and mood swings
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Grief and loss
  • Advocacy – empowering our clients to speak up and access the support they need.
