Yes! Many people working with Goal Coach access both. Coaching and counselling are two different services. In fact, the two services are complementary and can work well together advancing your goals and reducing barriers you may be facing. They just do this in different ways.   

Goal Coach works collaboratively with your team to make sure everyone is on the same page, including a person’s clinical teams, supporters, family and other people you’d like to bring into your circle. Goal Coach has counsellors, coaches and coordinators, but we also work extensively with other providers to bring your goals to life. 

Goal Coach’s counsellors are qualified individuals who are registered with the Australian Counselling Association – the peak national Association for Counsellors. Registered counsellors maintain their membership to the association by completing 25 points of professional development per year and have at least 10 hours of professional supervision per year. Learn more about our team here.

Goal Coach provides counselling at a rate of $170 per hour to non-NDIS participants and from $156.16 per hour to those in metropolitan areas with NDIS plans. 

There are many different ways you can access a counsellor. Sometimes, someone might refer you to a counsellor, or you may be able to find one yourself online. 

Remember – it is important to assess the credentials of the counsellor and take time to ensure you feel comfortable with them. Goal Coach is offering counselling with immediate availability, so if you are interested in talking to one of our counsellors, book a free 15 minute chat here.

Our qualified counsellors will truly listen and understand your story even when you may be struggling to communicate your needs. In the first session we’ll focus on discussing your situation and how you feel about it. We’ll start to unpack why you feel that way and any underlying issues.

With empathy and without judgment, we provide opportunities, solutions and new ways of thinking.

Goal Coach is great. I talk to my PRC every week and she helps me stay on task with my NDIS goals and helps me stay balanced and consistent with my health goals. She is caring and empathetic and an excellent PRC. I highly recommend Goal Coach.

This is a fabulous service! The process to get started was so easy and efficient. I was allocated to a Support Coordinator/Recovery Coach very quickly and I’ve found them to be incredibly helpful! Very kind, understanding, supportive, empowering, organized, proactive, and efficient. It’s been such a different experience for me with Goal Coach compared to other services and is helping in so many ways. I strongly recommend them.
GoalCoach, it's in the title that speaks for itself. Definitely specialist right when you need them. GoalCoach is the very first people I contacted since being part of NDIS and it was the best decision I am glad I made. All my needs are met very swiftly from the gender of the person to getting an OT out ASAP. You don't have to wait like with other providers and rest assured you won't regret it either.
