Counselling helps people to address emotional and behavioral issues that constantly arise in their life to create problems that prevent them from functioning optimally on a daily basis.

Coaching, on the other hand, helps those who seem to be living and functioning at optimal levels, but find they need more fulfillment in their lives and are looking for ways to function at even higher levels of achievement and purpose. Coaching is focused of achieving the outcomes you want now and in the future and helps you to gain and maintain leverage points in your life that move you forward.

Hypnosis is a very effective way for everyone to relax and have a break from their inner self- critic. It puts people into a frame of mind where they can look inward at the resources located underneath their critical conscious mind. Hypnosis can be used to generate new future oriented outcomes, used to reveal currently held beliefs and ideas that are present and operating but of which we are generally not aware. Hypnosis is also used to go back to points in time where deeper memories and reactions have been learned and stored.
