life coaching which is “what” and “how”
focussed ie “what do I want” and “how will I achieve
it”, counselling is more “why” focussed”.
goal of counselling is to assist people by:-
identifying why they have developed negative beliefs or behaviours;
developing strategies that enable them to deal with past issues
and in doing so move away from emotional distress;
unwanted symptoms and reestablishing a healthier emotional state.
