Butterfly Courage

Counselling and Coaching

Counselling supports you…

Counselling can be helpful

if you are feeling unhappy,

unfulfilled or anxious.

Often you may have tried to cope

on your own though you find it difficult.

Counselling is having a professional relationship,

not a friend and someone to listen to you,

no matter what happens.

Through counselling you can be supported

to find a new direction, possible strategies

or develop the skills to deal with demanding situations.

In counselling you will be heard

and have someone really listen to you

without judgement.

Counselling has a specific purpose:

to provide an opportunity for you

to work towards living

a more productive and satisfying life.



Coaching is much more positive focused

and future-goal directed.

With my coaching and mentoring services,

we look at where you have been

and where you would like to go.
