What is wellness coaching and how is it different from counselling?
The goal of counselling is to help the client to process and heal the past in order to feel better in the present. In wellness coaching, we focus more on the present and building skills and creating goals to work with what is now and the future. That is not to say that we ignore the past or that it is a no-go area. Rather that we look at it with the aim of coming back into the present and what you want in your life now.
Having worked as both a mental health nurse and a counsellor, I have helped many people who suffered from depression and low mood and am familiar with many different approaches.
I see now that through coaching, clients can overcome low mood and start to get excited about life again as they finally release themselves from the past and their old ‘story’ that has been defining them and holding them back.
Do you feel stuck in the past? Do you define yourself by what you have experienced in the past? Would you like to enjoy life now and start building towards a brighter future, freeing yourself from limiting self-talk?
Wellness coaching can help you to move through this and start focusing on what you want so that you can move in that direction.

Practise Location: Ballyduff, Co. Kerry or online via Zoom.
Duration of Session: 60 or 90 minutes
Client age group: 16+.
Fee, payable at the end of each session or in advance if online: €80 for one hour or €120 for 90 minutes.
I recommend for best results attending six weekly sessions starting out with 90 minutes for the first session and one hour sessions thereafter. We review at session five. For some people, six sessions is enough, others may want to attend more but space out the frequency.
