What's the difference between counselling and coaching?

Although counselling and coaching both work to release your potential and develop new skill sets, they are different services and use different approaches.

Clinical support



Our counsellors create a safe space for you to talk about whatever situation or challenges you may be facing. We will work with you to overcome these barriers and build your skills to move forward. We will remain respectful, show empathy, and uphold strict confidentiality at all times

"Life changing. I've achieved more with Goal Coach in my first few weeks, than in years of therapy...”
I had found out my NDIS plan was not going to be renewed. I was completely lost. Even my support coordinator at the time abandoned me. But they picked up the phone… with their support I’ve now had three new plans and accomplished many of my goals.
